Your Teacher….

Host and Guide, Chinmayi Dore

Chinmayi feels that yoga saved her life after a nervous breakdown in 2006. She left a 23-year career in senior banking to practice, study and learn to teach yoga to as many people as possible.

She has undertaken three teacher training programmes totalling 700hrs, with many return visits to Rishikesh in India to further develop her knowledge and skills in the many facets of yoga, including the yogic lifestyle, devotional practices and traditional meditation techniques.

She has been hosting workshops, retreats and yoga holidays for almost a decade. Her approach has always been to teach practices and ideas for optimal health, profound healing and lasting happiness. The emphasis is on making small changes to your lifestyle , meaning the benefits of the retreat continue long after the week ends.

Her warmth, enthusiasm and experience help retreatants to feel welcome, comfortable and immediately at ease. This makes her a wonderful guide and offers support for the intricate journey of self-exploration, healing and growth.

Don’t hesitate to go on this holiday…if you love Yoga, healthy delicious food, great like-minded company, this is the retreat for you! I knew it would be good, but it exceeded all of my expectations.
Can’t wait for the one next year! Irene

The yoga, the treatments, the chanting and the meditation fed and nourished the neglected person inside, which in turn left me feeling deep contentment. Liz

As Chinmayi lives in Spain, she has local knowledge which makes a difference. Chinmayi is a warm and generous human being. Her energy is incredible. Book now. Come alone or bring a friend. You will not be disappointed. Caron

While there are many retreats to choose from, I recommend Chinmayi because she puts her heart and soul into creating a memorable and personal healing experience. Everything is thought through and executed with style. Lots of personal touches such as home-made toiletries, and the availability of essential oils and flower remedies to treat imbalances. Nothing is too much trouble. It’s much, much more than a yoga retreat. Karen
