On such a blissfully relaxing break, we've kept the itinerary simple, allowing you to intertwine yogic and meditative practice with moments of solitude or sociable explorations of the island.
On Friday evening, Yoga Nidra helps you drop into a yogic sleep with this ancient art of meditation. You will be invited to lie down in savasana and be guided with gentle instruction into a state of deep, blissful awareness.
Saturday morning sees a Relaxing Yoga practice. Passive shapes using soft props to unwind and access stillness. Deliberate, slow breathing results in a feeling of calm and increased well-being.
There are plenty of opportunities to explore Tresco - perhaps finding a quiet spot on the island's wild north end, a place to rest on your favourite beach, or enjoying our revitalising island spa facilities.
On Saturday evening, Gem leads a Restorative Yoga session - a chance to really slow down and find sanctuary in a spacious practice, holding poses in comfort with soft props. Candlelight and soothing music will create an atmosphere of ease and calm, followed by the embrace of a warming drink and sweet treat.
Awake on Sunday morning with an invitation to share a mindful wander through Tresco's trees, followed by an invitation to join the group for traditional pub lunch at the New Inn.
Finally, on Sunday evening, you'll enjoy a second chance to explore the deeper levels of relaxation available between the realms of wakefulness and sleep. Surrender yourself.
