Bamboo resident yoga teacher Jenn Russell will be running two very special retreats this year, in November 2018 and March 2019. 

With her fourth year living in Patnem and teaching at Bamboo it is her pleasure to invite you to her spiritual home for a week of blissful meditation, soulful yoga, yummy food, cultural treats and good vibes guaranteed.

Discover and unlock your true potential with daily yoga and meditation supported by soul feeding workshops in gratitude journalling, asana labs and Thai yoga massage. Between classes, there will be plenty of time to relax on the beach, spot dolphins at sunrise on our boat trip, take a massage, shop tis you drop and enjoy fantastic local food. Midweek we take the afternoon off for a trip out to explore gorgeous Goa.

Combining the very best of meditation, vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga we’ll explore the incredible capabilities of the body and mind to help you achieve your full potential… a unique opportunity for personal growth.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yoga practitioner, you’ll progress in a fun, inclusive environment with like-minded yogis.

Jenn is a 500 hour advanced certified yoga teacher and Thai yoga massage therapist with a true passion for her art. Her inspiring vinyasa flow classes take students on a creative journey through the practice, expertly blending asanas with creative transitions, uplifting music, poetry and philosophy, delivered with humour and a sense of playfulness. Her gentle, restorative & yin evening classes combine relaxing postures with the healing touch of Thai yoga massage, set to a beautiful soundtrack. Jenn specialises in innovative yoga sequencing and also delivers arm balancing and inversion workshops for all levels (if you’ve been struggling with crow pose or dreaming of perfecting your headstand you’re in the right place).

Following the completion of two intensive yoga trainings, Jenn has taught extensively in Morocco, UK, Croatia, Goa, Thailand, Ibiza and Indonesia, leading students through vinyasa flow, power, restorative, ashtanga, meditation and partner yoga practices. She encourages students to have fun exploring their infinite capabilities … after all what your body is allowing you to do is truly amazing!

Your transformational yoga retreat includes:

  • 7 nights eco cottage accommodation
  • Early Chai & fruit light breakfast
  • Veggie brunch daily
  • Daily guided meditation
  • Daily morning vinyasa flow yoga
  • Sunrise boat trip to spot dolphins
  • Afternoon chai & healthy snacks
  • Daily gentle evening practice / workshop
  • Welcome evening meal by candlelight on the beach

For the remaining evenings we eat out at amazing local restaurants here in my Goan home. We’ll dine on the beach, at local thali cafes and intimate forest locations, at places with menus to suit a variety of tastes from Indian food to the freshest seafood. The cuisine in Goa is wonderfully varied and cheap and the benefit is you get to choose exactly what you want. I’ve spent four years doing the research!…. my favourite place is just £1.60 for a huge veggie thali (yes, I’ll be taking you there!!). Please budget an extra £5-10 a day for evening meals.
