2017 Yoga Retreats

I am an Activity Leader with HF, a specialist provider of great activity holidays.  

 

My retreats are a great way of deepening your yoga practice, get a bit of peace and quiet, go out in the fresh air whatever the weather, meet different people and make new friends. We laugh a lot as well! 

 

For each holiday, there is generally at least 2 yoga sessions from me per day, as well as a guided walk, lead by a qualified walking guide.  In addition, there may be the opportunity of: a pre-breakfast early morning meditation session, a yoga session after the walk before supper, or a mindfulness practice after supper.  

 

The price includes full board (lunch is a delicious picnic lunch), all yoga sessions and a half-day walk per day.

We were Yoga-ing & Walking in the North East of England in January 2017 

It was a great way of starting the new year, a 4 night yoga and walking holiday in Almouth, on the north east coast of England. The house was situated in a wonderful seaside location and it allowed for great coastal walking. There were suberb sea views from inside and out.

'Boat' pose, anyone?  


We are off to Yoga & Walk in the Highlands of Scotland, April 2017

17 - 22 April 2017    5 nights in Glencoe, Highlands, Scotland
