This magical retreat is headlined by bodyworker Louka Leppard & yoga teacher Leanna Buchanan. The focus is on Yoga,Body-work & Hiking with space built into the schedule for guests to relax around the pool and villa. There’s a tennis court on the grounds
Our yoga teacher Leanna Buchanan follows intuitive, thoughtful sequences, anchored in anatomical precision and yogic tradition. Her classes unfold with an inherent melody and intelligence to empower and inspire us. She helps us to awaken to a more conscious approach to living by helping us to apply the awareness of yoga to all the flows and rhythms of life. Bringing light and beauty to unity, and perhaps a little magic, in all we do, beat-by-beat, breath-by-breath. She uses instinctive flows harmoniously blended with the traditional roots of Hatha, with the fluency of Vinyasa and embodied freedom of Scaravelli.
The focus of Louka’s treatments is on the natural opening and realignment of the posture through the healing power of tenderness. He values simplicity and deep feeling over complexity, and uses clear, fluid lines, and gentle rhythms to take you on a devotional and meditative journey through the landscape of your body. The modality he works with besides massage is Tulayoga. A unique experience of floating in a peaceful space, outside of time. A space of trust, surrender and release. It is a coming home to yourself.
