Be a prince or pricness witrh us for one week on our Sanctuary retreat in this beautiful Scottish seaside castle


Sanctuary was a major success last July. 16 young professionals joined us in the most beautiful mansion in Suffolk to enjoy a week of camaraderie and great food with yoga and meditation taught by our trainers. This time we have joined forces with Agi Falenta and Natalie Nardi to give you another special work away from home retreat. You can expect a community of accomplished professionals, a perfect remote work setup, lots of yoga and fitness classes, fu7n actyivities and games and seaside freshness!

Class Descriptions


Yoga

A profoundly nourishing class that encourages the body to heal on a greater level and where the mind draws effortlessly toward more calm. The ethos of quality over quantity is given importance, along with an emphasis on how a shape or movement feels for the individual, over how it may visually appear. Breathwork and mindfulness also play a key role; using simple and effective techniques for everyone to remember at home.


Slow-paced, grounded and soothing, yet strong and suitable for everyone. Expect gentle mobilisation and passive stretches that work deeply to restore the body; with plenty of luxurious support and adjustments to enjoy comfortable holds, over longer periods of time. Perfect to recharge energies, end the day toward relaxation, relieve common aches, to compliment an active lifestyle or to simply help those with busy minds!


Pilates inspired HiIT - High Intensity workout

A little bit faster, more challenging class focussing on burning, sculpting and getting stronger,

leaner, toner. In this session we might use small props to add a challenge and to work more effectively. 

Be ready to sweat and have fun :)


Pilates for everyone

In this session we will focus on better understanding Pilates Principles. Trying to find connection with mind and body.

Session design for all levels. In this class Agi will show lots of progressions and modifications, to make sure that the class will be suitable for all levels.


We might use some small props for support, help, feedback or to add some challenge.


Pilates with a twist

Pilates is so beautiful in its simplicity. It allows you to go smaller, resist less, do fewer repetitions and often slower which helps find you a true challenge - whatever level of ability you are.


In this class Agi will show you how to make slight changes for a greater challenge. Come explore the possibilities with this session of taking the Pilates principles and variations of the original moves to the new level.


Extras (book in advance or on the retreat)


Therapeutic Massage

Treat yourself to unforgettable luxurious experiences…


Massage is a natural way of life for Natalie, having been introduced to this healing art from an early age, when it was used in the family home as a principal tool against common ailments.

Now, with 15 years’ experience, including yoga instruction, a higher intelligence is certainly brought to these sessions, where her passion and understanding of bodywork shines. Natalie honours the body as a complete whole, balancing not just the physical side but also that of the mind and emotions. She treats everyone as a unique individual represented in that moment in time and no one treatment is ever the same.


You can feel totally at ease in Natalie’s hands, whether you are new to massage, simply looking for relaxation, release of muscular tension, pain relief or seeking healing on a deeper level!


One-2-One Yoga

The way to effortlessly deepen your practice…


Natalie’s private sessions are known to be particularly therapeutic. Expect plenty of ground-based poses, where she uses the floor and bodyweight as a resistance to stretch, move and manipulate you deeply into shapes, allowing you to enjoy longer holds with less effort to relieve your body, physically, mentally and emotionally.


It is also time to focus on your individual practice to gain a deeper understanding of your needs, so you can progress more efficiently toward personal goals. Excellent for beginners’ initial experience to be more accompanied, to help their confidence and to establish safe practice skills. Advanced yogis can also benefit to improve their current practice, by working into poses with greater detail and by finding an extra element of challenge.


With Natalie’s experience in massage, a higher intelligence is certainly also brought to the mix: everyone enjoys the enhanced benefits of plenty of luxurious hands-on adjustments, moving you into poses, not only with better alignment but also with more pleasure!


Nava Haus Retreats retreats are planned around our four key pillars of L.I.F.E: leisure, indulgence, fitness and energy. We combine training and instruction, socializing, well-being and downtime. We expect you to come back pampered, healthier, mentally sound and with new life-long friends.
