Candradhī

Candradhī has been practicing yoga for over 10 years, and completed her teacher training with Bodhiyoga in 2018. She teaches mindfulness based yoga which draws on both hatha yoga and buddhist principles, emphasizing the cultivation of a grounded and embodied approach and the development of somatic awareness both on the mat and in daily life.  She mainly teaches on retreats, enjoying the depth and subtlety of practice that can be reached with the combined practice of yoga and meditation in a intensive context.  Candradhi was ordained in the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2022. Both her personal yoga practice and her teaching style emphasise the spiritual dimension of yoga as a means towards greater clarity, openness, compassion and freedom.

On this retreat, we'll move seamlessly between physical postures and seated meditation, recognising each as a gateway to embodied awakening.
