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.

Grindleford, Peak District, Derbyshire
September 7th to 10th 2018
The Cattle Shed, Grindleford, Derbyshire
A weekend of Yoga, Nature and Nuture! This is a new venue for me but it is so beautiful and we have uninterrupted views over the River Derwent to Curbar and Frogatts Edges.
The accomodation is spacious, beautifully done and luxurious! All rooms are twin en suites. Aside from the main living area is another room which will become our therapy room, as I have arranged for a massage therapist to join us.
The games room will become our yoga studio; and there is plenty of outside space if the weather is behaving for us to practice outside too, even down by the river if we can. There is a fire pit and I do hope we can have an evening ceremony one night.
This retreat is for 3 nights. All food will be gluten free and vegan as I have asked Dena Smiles to do the catering for us. If you need to leave early that is fine. The investment for the weekend is £320 per person and includes all tuition, accommodation and food. The massages are extra and will be £30.
The Cattle Shed is in Grindleford, Hope Valley, Derbyshire and we are only 5 mins drive from the railway station…on a line that runs between Sheffield and Manchester…so easy to get to.
The proposed itinerary will be: early morning yoga, breakfast, 2/3 hours walk, lunch, rest or massage, 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.
If you would like to book a place please contact me for full details.
