The Perfect Rural Yoga Retreat

ISLE OF WIGHT - an hour and a half from London

Yoga holidays and retreats on Isle of Wight. Nestled in the centre of the island, these period properties have panelled halls with burning log fires, to sit besides, read, relax and restore. The bespoke yoga spaces overlook parklands and hillside. This warm, congenial accommodation is perfect for relaxing, whilst stunning walks take you up onto the downs to enjoy the island’s seascape 360 degrees around. I relish moving beyond asana and teaching the revealing cocktail of pranayama, asana and meditation during these immersions.

NEW FOR 2019 : A Yoga and Cycling weekend based from Godshill Park Barn. This will involve meeting in Ryde on the Friday afternoon, dropping bags in the taxi and cycling to the farm before a relaxing yoga class in the evening. After a morning meditation class and hearty breakfast, we will join the round the island route. There will be a 60 mile and 40 mile option for riders, followed by a yoga class on the Saturday evening. On Sunday we will enjoy a longer yoga class in the morning before a hearty brunch before cycling the East of the Wight and returning guests to Ryde for travel back to mainland. Local electric bike hire is available for those with cycling ambitions that exceed their current training.

NEW FOR 2019 : 5 day Yoga Retreat at Northcourt House. This is an immersive retreat for a more serious yogic enquiry. There will be silence each morning and one full day of silence on the Wednesday and longer twice daily meditation and pranayama sessions than my weekends allow. When we practice with the purpose of deep inner listening, there is a supportive sweet clarity that emerges and a healing that happens in the silence.

Yoga Weekends - I return annually to Godshill Park Barn for my regular weekend in November and for an extended 3 day break over New Year. See below for details.

THE YOGA

I offer weekend yoga programmes to take participants deeper in their asana, pranayama (breath work) and meditation. Ideal for those of you who are curious about delving deeper into your yoga practice, these weekends are not suitable for the complete beginner. My background in Sivananda, Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga has cultivated a style that is flowing, clear and relaxing. As a lover of words and a teller of tales, my teaching is enriched with yoga philosophy, poetry and myths.

THE TEACHER

I am a keeper of words and a lover of stories, philosophy and poetry. My yoga offers clarity, suggests precision, offers strength whilst suggesting softness. Mornings will be dynamic and flowing and evenings restorative. I am senior yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance, I am a teacher of teachers and my quest is that of the pure spirit, my guides are integrity and joy. A keen ambassador for the Isle of Wight, I love sharing the footpaths and quite corners of this beautiful countryside with yogis who enjoy blustery walks or muddy runs.

ACCOMMODATION

I choose exceptional properties, with ensuite rooms. There is the use of the ancient panelled drawing rooms and small sitting rooms within the country houses for quiet reflection and reading.

The food

I request local food wherever possible. We cook wholesome, nourishing, vegetarian and plant based dishes that offer balanced nutrition. We can accommodate genuine food intolerances. There is normally cake and healthy snacks available each afternoon.
