THE DAILY PROGRAMME
There will be two classes on offer each day, one led by Evelyn and one by Darvina. The daily sessions will focus on movement, breath and relaxation to make your body stronger and more flexible, enhancing your awareness of breath, alignment and inner connection. Classes will be suitable for all abilities and there will be one yoga free day for rest and recovery.
The day will begin with a flowing and dynamic asana class in the purpose-built yoga shala. This will be followed by a nourishing and delicious breakfast made with local produce. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more relaxing and restorative class before dinner.
Between classes there will be time to head off for a bicycle ride, go to the beach for a swim, walk in the stunning surroundings, take a dip in the beautiful swimming pool or simply relax in a hammock with a good book.
THE TEACHING TEAM
You’ll be led by LEVELSIX tutors Evelyn Adams and Darvina Plante.
Evie has been practicing yoga for over 14 years, finding a grounding asana and meditation practice extremely helpful in the acting profession and in preparing for theatre performance, both of which have been part of her life and career for even longer than yoga!
Evie loves that a yoga practice allows people to stand a little taller, breathe a little deeper and love a little harder every single day. Evie will offer a range of dynamic flowing classes alongside more calming restorative yoga sessions and candlelit meditations.
Darvina originally trained as a dancer and discovered yoga 15 years ago. She enjoyed the sense of peace that a steady yoga practise gave her and subsequently trained to become a yoga teacher.
In Darvina’s classes she is passionate about maintaining a strong focus on self-exploration, aiming to provide a safe environment that helps students strengthen and better understand the mind, body and soul connection. Darvina will offer a selection of vinyasa flow, mandala and yin-yang classes. Expect to feel rested and recharged as these classes work on bringing calming elements as well as smooth flows and great playlists to immerse the body and mind in a great yoga journey.
Every class is optional, but we don’t think you’ll won't want to miss these wonderful offerings of revitalising Vinyasa flows along with the power of yin and deep relaxation. Expect to feel totally relaxed after a great day of classes.
You will enjoy the most delicious, healthy and wholesome food and drink over the weekend, inspired by the seasons. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be designed to be nutritious, healthy and filling.
Woody, our co-founder and chef believes it’s vital that we consider what we eat, both for ourselves and our planet. This choice can too easily become automatic and convenience-led. Expect healthy vegetarian dishes avoiding any unnatural ingredients or processes.
Born and bred in Peckham, much of Woody’s culinary experience has been gained locally. He is one of the co-founders of LEVELSIX and is the brains behind the delicious food and drink in the studio cafe.
Woody designs menus inspired by his interest in nutrition and as far as possible by the seasonality of fruit and vegetables. Woody makes nearly everything himself, including almond milk, yoghurt, kombucha and raw vegan flapjacks.
We're excited to bring you this fantastic programme of yoga and wellness in a top location.
