ABOUT LYNETTE

Lynette Greenaway: Ashtanga (Hatha Raja Yoga) RYT 400 hours

Lynette ( RYT 400 hours), began her exploration with yoga 12 years ago. It only took a few years until she developed a serious relationship with her yoga practice and in 2010 embarked on her first teacher training in Ashtanga (Hatha Raja Yoga). Following her passion for linking breath to movement after discovering a vinyasa flow class, she went on to undertake her second 200 hour teacher training with Sally Parkes in 2013 studying sequencing, gentle hatha, restorative yoga, yoga for back care and pre and post natal yoga.

Lynette has also trained with Leila Sadeghee, Bridget Luff, Adam Husler and Bridget Woods Kramer, she is earning her status as an Anusara inspired teacher, with comprehensive alignment principles and life affirming philosophy. Lynette continues to pursue education in yoga and the healing arts. This ongoing process of learning is what provides the fresh insights that inspire her teaching. Healthy breathing, alignment and balanced energy flow are consistent points of her focus in her classes. Lynette’s teaching style is intuitive, playful and highly spirited and nourishes the hidden strengths of her students, while challenging them to reach beyond their perceived limitations. You will leave Lynette’s class feeling enlivened, vibrant and whole.

YOGA

The Yoga classes are a combination of energising Dynamic Yoga in the morning followed by a more restorative practice of Hatha yoga later in the day. The emphasis of the postures will be on detoxification and together we will work through yoga postures that compress, twist and stretch the body in order to aid elimination via the digestive system. This will help you feel lighter both physically and mentally which will in turn assist you in reaching a state of relaxation.

Yoga Nidra: Yogic sleep

Yoga Nidra (meaning ‘yogic sleep’) is a form of deep relaxation and is offered before bed to encourage restful sleep so you will feel refreshed & renewed both mentally & physically.

Pranayama: Breath Control

During each yoga session we will also practice breathing techniques that will assist your detox and yoga practice by calming the nervous system & stimulating the digestive system. The practice of Pranayama is also known to improve mental focus and clarity and improve ones’ lung capacity. We hope that when you leave our retreat you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. To help we provide a wide range of holistic therapies, which are available at extra cost. These treatments can be booked when you book your place on the retreat and include:

  • Deep Tissue Massage

  • Indian Head Massage

  • Thai Yoga Massage

  • Reiki
