Full Description

There will be morning yoga classes with more gentle evening sessions, followed by guided mindfulness meditation, pranayama (ancient Yogic breathing techniques) and deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra).

All levels are welcome!

My retreats attract every level of practitioner. I always have a mixture of people attending. I can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of yoga varies too as I’ve trained in quite a few disciplines, such as Sivananda ( Hatha style ) and Ashtanga. I really work with the feel of the group and meet the needs and requirements of my class participants in that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.

We’ll start with a 2 hour yoga & meditation session on Friday night to ease us into the weekend, followed by dinner. Yoga will be held in the ballroom. In the classes, I will be giving personal adjustments to correct postures and guiding you through the breath ( pranayama ) and meditation. Please bring your own mats. Thank you
