Yoga and Glitter
16th - 23rd June 2018
Andy Koblinsky is a pint-sized ball of yoga energy, bringing her backflipping gymnastics background to a fun and creative practice, accompanied by an awesome playlist! Andy’s yoga style focuses on the use of breath and body alignment but most importantly, they aim to be enjoyable and help you to get to know your body. From her sports training, she loves fitness and her yoga is definitely for those who enjoy a challenge – you will get a sweat on.
We're delighted to be hosting Andy on her first retreat; Manoir La Croix de La Jugie is the perfect peaceful foil to Andy's enthusiasm and happiness, and our beautiful, quirky interiors are the perfect place to relax in style off the mat.
Her flowing practice is totally tailored in her own style and practice with Andy is challenging but usually suited to many different levels. Her yoga can be slow and super powerful, as well as playful and energetic. Everyday is a different day so on this, Andy's first retreat, you'll find changing sequences but also a journey to the week which will deepen your practice and your sense of fun - wear your glitter!
As well as a beautiful environment, La Jugie is in the heart of rural France, so you'll enjoy healthy, balanced and delicious meals throughout the week (with plenty of French treats and tastes) which will give you the fuel and nutrients your body will need to make the most of this very special retreat. We use local ingredients and produce wherever possible.
Prices from £750 per person for a shared room and from £1300 per person for single occupancy. See below for rooms now available.
Andy cartwheeled her way around the world with Argentina’s gymnastics team before settling in London 15 years ago. She’s been practicing yoga ever since and 5 years ago decided to train as a teacher. She has trained with many amazing teachers such as David Swanson, Patrick Beach, Norman Blair and Biff Mithoefer.
Her classes focus on breath work and alignment but mainly aim to be fun and enjoyable whilst giving you the motivation to greatly improve your practice. Prepare to sweat, stretch, relax, laugh and breathe. Andy's Yoga playlists are legendary as is her love of glitter and her secret box of sparkly festival catsuits.
You'll enjoy delicious homecooked food with a healthy vibe using fresh local ingredients from the region which is known for its rich, rustic and hearty cuisine. As with all good balanced diets, we'll pay special attention to replenishing your body with nutritionally balanced meals after your yoga sessions, as well as enjoying some special local treats.
