a journey of self discovery
with Alison Jennings
Why a retreat?
What could be better than your usual weekly yoga class when you arrive on the mat, hear the teachers soothing voice and immediately feel like you have come home…? Enjoying all of this in a retreat environment either in the rolling Welsh hills or on the sunny Greek island of Zakynthos. A yoga retreat takes you on a journey of self discovery. There is more time to explore asana. There is more time to explore pranayama. There is more time to explore the deeper foundations of yoga. There is chance to reset the busy bustle of the mind with a calmer, more peaceful and accepting approach.
What to expect
Each retreat venue has been carefully chosen by Alison of Yogastarr because of the commitment and energy of the hosts. Delicious brunches and dinners are served with love around communal tables where laughter, poetry and conversation are plentiful. You will have time for relaxing, exploring and replenishing your body and mind. You might have a certain idea in your mind about what a retreat can offer you… Here are some comments from retreat participants in both Wales and Zakynthos.

What do people say?
A lovely retreat, set in beautiful surroundings with amazing food and people. The balance of guided yoga, relaxation and free time was just right. I would encourage young, old, experienced yogis and newbies to attend.
Yogastarrs West Wales retreats just keep getting better. The retreat is s step back from a busy life to recharge, rejuvenate and be kind to yourself. The food, the yoga and Alison’s wise words – Thanks Ali, you’re the best!!!
I love the variety of the sessions; physical yoga, mindfulness, meditation and relaxation. It felt dynamic, engaging and fulfilling. The right time of sessions for the right time of day. Ali’s facilitation of the yoga was so embracing
Blissful weekend. Amazing food. Relaxed atmosphere. Feeling great in body and mind. I cannot wait to return
Nothing was too much trouble – accommodation, food and yoga was 5stars! Loved it!
The retreat was all I had hoped for and so much more. I feel my yoga ability has increased and my technique improved. Chanting was a new experience which I loved. Ali’s ability to demonstrate, guide and explain is superb. Most of all thank you for the laughter and sheer joy of bringing this amazing group of women together. Can’t wait for next year.
