Our Drumming and Yoga retreats provide the perfect compliment for those wishing to experience a well-balanced activity holiday. Combining two spiritual practices that are effectively based around meditation and mind-body synchronisation.
Guests will experience early morning Yoga to energise and provide balance for the day, calming
the mind and preparing the body, for a day of continued relaxation!
In the late afternoon or early evening there will be Djembe Workshops, ideal for those with experience as well as beginners to enjoy learning the powerful 'patterning system' of meditative percussion techniques. Guests will experience a full exploration of Rhythm arrangements (Introduction parts, accompaniment patterns. and 'free form' soloing and melodies to compliment rhythm)
The talented and friendly Yoga instructor Anna is a Integral Yoga Teacher inspired by the teachings of Swami Satchidananda. This 'style' seeks to integrate body, mind and spirit and is generally considered to be of a more gentle nature.
Daily djembe drumming workshops are facilitated by Graeme Goodwin of RhythmWorks; you will learn to play the Djembe drum using proven traditional techniques originating in the training schools in Guinea Conakary for the Djoliba (the National Drum and Dance Ballet of Guinea Conakary). These techniques are easily varied to suit the experience level of the guests and are a fantastic introduction to West African Percussion at beginner / intermediate level.
