Let’s Greet 2018 with a Great Big Welcome…

…And start the new year by dedicating yourself

to the practice of yoga.


If you are interested in intuitive organic movement, meditation and energetic awareness in your Yoga practice, you will find all that here in these courses. They will help you feel your best, helping you to stay bright and breezy throughout this winter. Some are wonderfully physical openings and stretchings to allow more freedom of movement and others are classics for us to re-visit again and again. I  have learned  that when you practise Yoga  honestly you wake up every day inspired and ready to

tune-in to your own purpose in your life.

All of these workshops are dedicated to that goal.

Please read through the following lost of courses and be inspired to join in.

There is something for everyone.

                                          With love,




Pure time for yourself.

There are times in life when we all need to retreat from everyday routine.

To take a breather, se we can change, fundamentally, how we feel about ourselves and our lives. There is no better gift we can give ourselves at the beginning of the year, to ensure the next 12 months are focused, purposeful and successful. If you want 2018 to deliver, this day could be just for you.

A whole day with great company, excellent food, and time, time, time for yourself. The morning will focus on wonderful cleansing practises and the excellent ‘Yoga For Digestion’. The afternoon will be nourishing, nurturing, more yin based yoga with breathing, visualisations and meditation practises. There will be a terrific organic lunch made for us by

The Limekiln Cafe.

Join me and set yourself up ready to embrace life.

A different kind of Away-Day…

We spend so much time living in our heads - to hold down our jobs, our relationships and the various responsibilities that define adult life - we tend to over-ride our body and the messages it has for us. This is especially true when it comes to falling energy levels which can be the first indicator of a health challenge. We opt for more coffee, more sugar, more exercise even, and sheer force of will.  However we don't need to go to great effort to alter how we live, or introduce unrealistially lengthy practices into our lives. Just a few mindful steps can make all the difference, replenishing the well so that our reserves are deeper and we can ride any storms with a little more ease, . Remember how you feel after a yoga class, imagine how it’s going to be after a full day. Enjoying the company of like minded people, wonderful yoga flows and deeper postures,mudras, bandhas new ideas, meditations, relaxations and visualisations.

And to add to it all The Limekiln Cafe will make a gorgeous organic nourishing lunch for us.

These  Retreat Days have become extremely popular and essential. 

Suitable for all ages and abilities

“I would relax, if only I had a mind to”  How many times have you said that?

This workshop will be a luxurious opportunity to explore the power of stillness in different forms.

We start by opening up the body, filling every single part with breath and awareness, so that we naturally become more grounded, centred

and mindful.

By this, we move into stillness and quiet.

Our breath work will aim to effortlessly extend those moments when the body and breath become still. If you can breathe you can be mindful and if you can be mindful you can transform your whole life. 

Sunday  4th February 2018

We will include the wonderful Inner Axis breathing - you will feel so different after this , and its easy to learn. If you can bring it into your daily life or yoga practise you will feel the  enormous benefits. And  we will be practising  mindfulness breathing step by step which brings calmness peace and an inner strength that will gently permeate

your whole life
