Yoga Retreats

This is subject to gov restrictions and guidlines.

I use two centres for my yoga holidays at the moment, and hope to offer the India Ashram and Mumbai experience next year.

Yoga at the Palace Hotel in Buxton yoga holidays in the Peak District

I run Yoga retreats over weekends throughout the year. These yoga holidays aim to provide time to go within, to conect with your inner self and find new ways of thinking and being. They also aim be fun, energising, relaxing and motivational.

I use chakra work within the yoga sessions to explore aspects of our lives, our habits, our thoughts, and by focussing on these aspects you can gain awareness and mindfully make changes. I also offer a Mindfulness yoga session at the start of the weekend to bring harmony and stillness, a good place to start. I am able to offer modifications to poses, and offer ways to work harder within a pose, so the classes are suitable for both beginners and those more experienced.

There is a Mindfulness workshop during the weekend where various pracrtices are taught so that students can gain awareness of their present state of mind, gain awareness of their positive and negative habits and techniques to help set new goals.

The weekend offers lovely walks in the beautiful Peak District countryside. There is a fantastic walk in the Goyt Valley nearby plus Buxton Park and the Solomons Temple. If the weather is too poor for a walk there is Pool's Cavern in Buxton which is very interesting (at extra cost).

The Palace Hotel has a fantastic pool and spa which are free for us to use, plus you can book yourself a treatment by emailing (extra charge).

The evening sessions are based around relaxation and meditation. Techniques such as candle gazing, face/head/hand massage, tennis ball massage, straw breathing, meditation and yoga nidra are offered (when allowed).

When usual circumstances return there is the opportunity for pair yoga for laughter yoga and Indian head massage on each other, but with Covid-19 guidelines these will be replaced by other enjoyable practices.

The cost is £365 (paid 1 month before). If you have been to one of my retreats before there is a discounted price of £320. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is needed to confirm your place. This price is for a single en-suite room, all activities and all meals from Friday evening through to lunch on Sunday. Twin rooms and double rooms are also available, but the price is the same per person as the hotel charges me per person.

Yoga at The Whaley Abbey Retreat Centre near Clitheroe

The yoga holidays at this retreat centre are very similar to the Palace Hotel holiday but the focus will be on deepening your yoga practice by incorporating pranayama sessions, meditation, cleansing techniques (neti pots etc), and enjoying periods of silence. There are lovely walks close by, the grounds are beautiful, and the centre has 4 star accomodation.Participants can come away feeling rejuvinated and peaceful.

Forthcoming retreats are following:
