Masterclasses and Retreats

Yoga Masterclasses

The masterclasses are an opportunity for you to work a little deeper, looking more into the areas of yoga that we may just touch on in class.  They are a way of helping you develop your own practice at home, or just time to learn something new.  The classes are suitable for everyone, unless stated otherwise.  Please book onto the days as soon as possible to make sure you secure your place.  Contact me. 

26th November 2017 – Christmas Craft Fayre for Nepal – Darley Abbey Village Hall, Abbey Yard, Darley Abbey DE22 1DS – 10am to 4pm
Helping to raise money for Tara Women’s Project in Nepal…providing sanitary packs and health education to women in remote region of Nepal.  Every £5 will provide a pack to a lady, which will last her for around 2 to 3 years.  The project is also enabling ladies to learn to make the packs therefore providing employment too.  There will be 20 stall holders…all local artisans…the entrance price of £5 not only goes directly to Nepal but gives you a cuppa and piece of cake!  Please put the date in your diary and bring your friends!

6th January 2018 – Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree, Derby DE22 2GG. 10am to 12.30pm – Restorative Yoga
This will be a little time out for you to find some inner space and peace.  It will include asana but also meditation practices to help you really connect to your spaciousness and hopefully something you can incorpoate into your daily life.  It will be at Allestree Memorial Hall from 10am to 1230pm but if the weather allows I also propose to do a little outdoor practice for those that have time.  Please book your place with me so your place is secured.

10th February 2018 – Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree, Derby DE22 2GG. 10am to 12.30pm – Meditation for the Heart
I love working with the heart at this time of year.  The practice will be nurturing and we will use pranayama, mudra and relaxation techniques as well as meditation.  It will be a rounded balanced programme and hopefully with some ideas to use on your own.

Sharing some wonderful practices to bring you joy, to encourage you and make you smile!

Yoga Retreats

Wortley Hall, Wortley, South Yorkshire

March 16th to 18th 2018 – Waiting List Only!

Wortley is a very popular venue for my yoga retreat weekends as it is set in 26 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, all of which we try and use!  It has a warm, welcoming feeling, with many hidden charms. All the rooms have ensuite facilities and the food is nourishing and lovingly made.
This is a retreat weekend so there will be yoga classes all day, but you can do as much or as little as you like. Come and use the time to develop your practice, be with like minded people, or just to let go.  The theme this year will be on Colour.

Your investment for this weekend is:
£265 per person.
This includes accomodation, all food and yoga teaching.
Travel and insurance costs are not included.
To book your place please contact me. You will need to make a non-refundable deposit of £100 per person, and the final balance will be due by January 26th 2018.
If you would rather pay via BACS, please email me for my account details.

 

Grindleford, Peak District, Derbyshire

September 7th to 10th 2018

New Venue!

A weekend of Yoga, Nature and Nuture!  This is a new venue for me but it is beautiful and we have uninterrupted views to River Derwent and Curbar and Frogatts Edges.  With 10 twin ensuite rooms we will be the only people here and there will be a little karma yoga each day, and we will have delicious vegetarian and vegan food cooked for us.
The accomodation is spacious and beautifully done; there is a games room which allows itself to become a yoga room; and there is plenty of outside space if the weather is behaving.  A fire pit as well for evening ceremony which will be lovely.  And toasted marshmallows!
This retreat is for 3 nights, but if you need to leave early that is fine.  We have to vacate by 10am on the Monday so there will only be time for an early morning class.
The proposed itinerary will be: early morning yoga, breakfast, 2/3 hours walk, lunch, more yoga, evening meal and fun yoga before bed!!! I may have to change things to suit the weather.  And if you just want to sit and read and enjoy the views that is fine too.  May even try to get a massage person to come and give treatments to those that want to indulge themselves a little deeper.
If you would like to book a place please contact me for full details.
