TULA RETREAT

GOA

8 - 15 January 2017





THE RETREAT

Just....For...Pleasure....

In January 2017 Louka Leppard will be holding a retreat at the beautiful and peaceful Ashiyana
on Mandrem beach in the north of Goa.

As one year ends and another begins
this retreat is a time and place for you to regenerate and nurture yourself
in the company of gentle and warm hearted people.
A time to return to your breath, to your nature, to your body, sensations and feelings.

The schedule is very light and is not goal oriented.
You can relax and enjoy receiving and practicing simple, loving and concentrated massage movements
in two 90 minute classes, one before brunch and one after.
Your early mornings and afternoons are free to walk on the beach, take some sun and roll around in the waves.

If you would like more structure in your day, there are optional afternoon yoga classes.

You are welcome to come alone, with a friend or with your partner.
Your partner can be taking part or just there to enjoy the beach while we practice together.
