The 2024 Course Programme

Sunshine and Self Enquiry Retreat with Carol Macartney
18 May - 25 May 2024

The retreat offers participants the wonderful opportunity to enjoy the relaxed, casual, and uplifting effects of a yoga holiday combined with the stillness and depth of a yoga retreat.

Each day will begin with an early morning Sadhana of meditation and kundalini kriya’s, opening the heart and mind in preparation for the asana, completing the morning practice in the spirit of Bhakti yoga, chanting mantras and moving into the day with joy and gratitude.

After brunch there will be plenty of free time to sit by the pool and enjoy the peace of this extraordinary location, take a walk through the forest to the private beach on the lagoon or take a bus ride from the village to the riverside town of Dalyan.

The late afternoon/early evening practice will combine restorative asana, balancing and relaxing pranayama and guided meditations.

There will be one free day to take a boat trip, enjoy other excursions or explore the local area. These can be taken as a group, or spending the day solo is also an option, if preferred.


Carol has been teaching yoga for almost thirty years and is a long-established teacher with Huzur Vadisi.

Her journey has taken her through all styles of yoga and although originally trained in the Sivananda style, she embraces elements from Kundalini, Bhakti, Tantra and Advaita Vedanta. Her influences have been many but her guiding love and light has been through her beloved teacher Clive Sheridan. She has an extraordinary love of life, music and dance which is reflected in her teaching.  She has a wonderful way with people and the ability to recognise the individual needs of her students. She lives and teaches on the Isle of Wight, where she offers retreats, workshops and Bespoke Teacher Trainings.
