Hayley and Georgina wanted to host this kind of a retreat because they truly believe that all bodies are good bodies, and all bodies are yoga bodies! Our retreat is a safe space for plus size women who want to enjoy a holiday and reconnect with their bodies in a supportive environment. The retreat is aimed at body positive women, and those taking their first tentative steps towards accepting and loving their bodies.
The retreat includes daily yoga classes (these are completely optional – you can do as much or as little yoga as you wish) which are aimed at all levels, from beginner to advanced. If you’re a newbie, don’t worry! What we love about yoga is that it is a practice that is inherently flexible. It can be modified to cater for “everybody” – regardless of size, shape, age or sex. Many of our guests have been beginners and found their yoga experience rewarding and enjoyable!
We also include a variety of other experiences and excursions that take place over the course of the week, including a relaxing visit to our local hammam, a boat trip, a belly dancing class, aqua aerobics, and body confidence discussions led by plus size bloggers Georgina Horne and Hayley Stewart. We also encourage you to visit the local markets, and nearby sites. Your hosts, Hayley and George, will organise meals out and shopping trips (they love to shop!) at beautiful nearby spots that are an instagrammers dream!
For those who just want to chill out, we have a sun drenched swimming pool complete with sun loungers, as well as quiet, shady spots for meditation and contemplation. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk away, and heading into town is an easy walk or an inexpensive cab ride.
The retreat is perfect for single travellers from all over – with meal times and yoga classes being communal, as well as lots of free time to chill alone or hang out together, by the end of our retreats most guests have found friends for life – sharing stories, jokes and experiences. The greatest thing most of our guests take from their week is a true feeling of sisterhood and support. Sounds corny but it’s true!

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the retreat. I’m a yoga beginner who likes her meat, her sun, her soul baring chats but also her alone times. But I came away feeling limber, relaxed, rejuvenated, inspired to cook more meatless meals, tanned, and most importantly, with new friends

I was absolutely amazed at the restorative effect of a week at Azure. Our hosts Michelle and Ali were absolutely wonderful, I thoroughly enjoyed the yoga and the vegetarian food, and the company was wonderful. Such a safe space for growing as a body positive woman and meeting like minded souls who really helped me on my own journey as much as I helped them
