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.

Yoga Retreats

Wortley Hall, Wortley, South Yorkshire

March 13th to 15th 2020 

Only 3 spaces left

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 I intend working with this year is space and stillness.

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 2019.
If you would rather pay via BACS, please email me for my account details.

Grindleford, Peak District, Derbyshire

September 24th to 27th 2020

The Cattle Shed, Grindleford, Derbyshire

 

A weekend of Yoga, Nature and Nuture!  This will be our third visit to this beautiful venue and part of Derbyshire. 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.  This year I will have ONE SINGLE room – so do enquire if that is your heart’s desire!

 Aside from the main living area, there is another room which we use as our therapy room.  Massages are available and must be pre-booked.

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.  We have never managed this yet as it often rains…but rain brings us good fun memories of 2019 walks!  We will use the fire pit  for an evening ceremony…or just to toast marshmallows!!

This retreat is for 3 nights.  All food will be gluten free and vegan as I have asked Dena Smiles of Probiotic Love to do the catering for us.

 The investment for the weekend is £350 per person and includes all tuition, accommodation and food.  There is ONE single room at a rate of £580.

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 restorative 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.
