The Wisdom Weaver – A Yoga Retreat with Nico Luce & Claire Dalloz
27th April to 5th May 2019
Join Nico and Claire to take part in their Yoga retreat at the Boutique Hotel Jasper House at Hiriketiya Beach in South Sri Lanka from April 27 to May 7 2019. A unique combination of excellent Yoga teaching & diving into the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras in a tropical location, where you’ll stay in an open-concept Villa and wake up to the sound of monkeys and exotic birds in the surrounding coconut groves. During this quality time together, you will gain deeper insights and refinements about the practices of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, and, the Sutras. Be immersed in your Yoga practice, in your experience of living the Yoga Sutras with Nico Luce & Claire Dalloz, eat delicious vegetarian food, swim in clear waters, surf and relax on the lovely beach.
Nico and Claire invite you to take part in this unique opportunity to step out of your daily life and reflect upon it from a distance. The Yoga Sutras, the most authoritative classical text of Yoga, is a teaching from the highest spiritual vision, that of a still mind. These "threads" of wisdom, which also include the well-known “eight limbs of Yoga”, offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life. Learn more about the Sutras and how they can help you in your own life. This will enable you to gain a better perspective of the greater picture and support you in moving forward on your journey in a more balanced, sustainable and joyful way - On and off the mat.
For eleven days, Claire and Nico will be offering a complete Yoga program in which you will be able to observe and practice with two unique teachers, who come from different backgrounds. Their slightly different perspectives in their practice and teaching will support you in your desire to live a more enjoyable and fulfilling life.
This retreat is suitable for all levels of Yogi, except for absolute beginners.
The Boutique Style Villa has twelve beautiful bedrooms: triple, double, twin and a limited number of single rooms. The rooms have been designed with an open concept; their large windows (mostly open spaces, no glass…) and open-air en suite bathrooms have views of the ocean and vast coconut groves. All the rooms have a mosquito net, polished concrete floors with a cooling effect, in addition to the ceiling fans. The rooms are fitted with locally produced furnishing and fittings mixed with antiques and art deco features. The villa has a huge rooftop with views out onto the bay. Tastefully furnished with sun beds, sofas and alfresco dining area, this is a highlight of the location and the perfect spot to enjoy sunset and quite moments. The villa has a small lap pool surrounded by sun beds and a relaxation deck.
The villa owners have deep roots in Sri Lanka and their respect for the local culture and natural environment is integral to maintaining a spiritual, harmonious location. Yogatanja uses local staff and guides so that your trip will directly contribute to the local economy.

Cyprus Yoga Retreat with Claire Dalloz
6th to 13th October 2019
During this intense yoga week (5 hours practice per day) we will enjoy a holistic practice. In the morning session we begin in silence with a meditation and pranayama practice and then move into a dynamic Hatha Flow practice. In the evening session we sing mantras and wind body and mind down with a restorative practice.
During this week you have the opportunity to leave daily life behind and to dive deep into your yoga practice, connect to your essence, restore your energy and create a healing space within you. This connection to your essence enables you to feel a sense of freedom on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual. It allows you to come home to the Self.
Claire offers an integrated, holistic practice that awakens consciousness on all levels. Through moments of stillness in meditation, moments of concentration in pranayama (breath work) and the precise practice of asanas (yoga poses) consciousness is awakened and transformation can take place.
Registration or for more information please email Claire: email@example.com
