I will be leading this retreat at the Punta de Cousoretreat centre in North Western Spain. The centre is in a beautiful location on a peninsular by the sea. The retreat will be an opportunity to explore yoga as a holistic process of awakening which involves much more than just posture practice.
Practices will include Asanas, Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Samyama, as well as other yoga practices. The focus of the retreat will be on the cultivation of inner silence and peace-fullness.
Full instructions in practice will be given. All yoga classes and meditation sessions are optional so each person can take the retreat at whatever pace suits them.
Food on the retreat will be vegetarian and there will be two meals served each day (brunch and dinner). Fruit and hot drinks will be available all day. We can also cater for special diets such as vegan and gluten free.
The cost includes accommodation for the seven nights, food and all the yoga and meditation classes. There are no extra costs.

Tristan first began the practice of yoga in 1985 at school when he was 16 years old. At the age of 19, he travelled to the Himalayas to live in a Mahayana Buddhist monastery. This was really his first introduction to the higher teachings and to the spiritual life. He had his first awakening experience a year later after a meditation retreat in a Buddhist cave monastery in Thailand and experienced the awakening of kundalini the following year in 1991.
Over the next 19 years, he continued to study Buddhist meditation and yoga and travelled to Nepal, Sri Lanka and especially India as often as possible to continue the study and practice of yoga in various ashrams and monasteries. He started teaching yoga and meditation in 2006. He qualified as a yoga teacher from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta ashram in Kerala, India.
Some of the most influential teachers in his life have been Amritanandamayi (Amma), Ajhan Amaro, Ajahn Succito, Maharaj, Tapkay Lama and Yogani. The yoga he teaches is integral, incorporating all eight limbs of yoga and his focus is as much about spiritual purification and self-realization as about the physical aspects of yoga.
