8-day International AYP retreat

at the Punta-de-Couso Retreat Centre,

 Galicia, Spain

June 26th to July 3rd 2019

Intermediate/ advanced level

The Venue

I will be leading this retreat at the Punta de Couso retreat centre in North Western Spain. The centre is in a beautiful location on a peninsular by the sea.

There are several white-sand beaches within easy walking distance from the centre.

The yoga

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.

This retreat will be suitable for anyone who has been practicing yoga for a year or more. The retreat will include some advanced breathing techniques (pranayamas) and these will all be taught on the course. We will also be looking at Jnana Yoga on the course which is the yoga of Self-inquiry.

Languages and retreat leaders

The retreat will be taught and led in the English language. It will be led by Tristan Dorling and Amandine Perrin.


Food will be vegetarian. The food served will support a yoga and meditation practice. We can also cater for vegan diets and special diets such as dairy or gluten free, if you let us know in advance.

There will be two meals served each day (brunch and dinner) and fruits and hot drinks will be available all day.


 £695 per person in a shared twin room.


 £785 per person in a single room.

The cost includes accommodation for 7 nights, 2 meals a day and all the yoga and meditation classes.  

If you are travelling on your own and you would like to stay in a shared room, you will be allocated a room with someone of the same gender.

A deposit of £70 is required to secure a place on the retreat.
