My retreats will always have a very teacher/learning element to them. I want the you to come away feeling like you have had a yoga experience like never before. You will learn about your body, developed proprioception, understand some anatomy, work through old injury narratives, have postures broken down and the safety of them, developed your own practice and skills. Let’s get rid of the word ‘can’t’
A retreat allows us all to unplug. It allows us to see ourselves. This clarity allows us to see strength and power and ability as a person without everything else. Be tenacious, be strong, be emotional, be connected, and be capable. There will be structured mornings and evenings, some included activities that you can take part in or opt out of. The rest of your day will be yours to fill how you choose. Take time by the pool, read a book, jump in the car and explore the surrounding areas, go on a hike up a mountain or have those naps you never have time for.
Each morning begins with a peaceful meditation, followed by a strong, fiery 90 min hot yoga practice. Challenge your mind and body in these classes finding determination and tenacity. You will be given free time to explore the nature around us, sit in a quiet corner to read and enjoy the outdoors or pool. Your evening will be a lighthearted yoga workshop or Yin practice and meditation will allow your energy to soften and turn your focus even deeper within. We will enjoy a nourishing evening meal together, discuss our day, laugh and fully unwind. The rest of the evening is yours to retreat to your rooms and get an early night, read a book, make use of the summer night or continue to socialise and make memories.

Join Meegan Bradley for your daily yoga classes and workshops. She believes learning is power, especially when taught in an accessible and friendly way. She has been teaching yoga intensively for over 4 years now and have done bespoke training in assists and adjusts, yin yoga, using props to aid practice and yoga for sport. She also runs her own yoga studio Hotpod Yoga Margate. She believes learning never stops and one of the most beneficial things we can do for ourselves is to be self reflective practitioners.
Her teaching style is non-judgemental and friendly. There is no ‘bad’ at yoga but there are ways that we can use our own personal alignment and body awareness to improve mobility and strength. Working with Meegan on yoga retreats gives you a chance to do classes in smaller groups, discuss your practice personally with her during your time and the opportunity for 1:1 sessions on retreat to work on anything specific you would like as well. At the end of the retreat you will leave with more clarity, strength and confidence which will help empower you in your yoga practice moving forward!
