After working at a couple of retreat centres now, and teaching on one back in 2017 I now feel ready to offer my own retreats. Many of you have been to my classes or workshops, either in the UK or abroad. And I wanted to be able to offer something spectacular for both places, England obviously being my country of birth and holding a special place in my heart – and South East Asia where I have conducted the bulk of my study and growth as a yoga teacher and practitioner.
The last centre I worked at was very serene and a hugely healing experience for the people who came, and I really wanted to bring that to you guys.
In that way, I’m so pleased to share with you the themes for the retreats for 2020.
With a capital ‘R’. This is a four day long weekend set in the beautiful Dorset countryside in a luxury yurt glamp camp. We’ll be incorporating gentle flows with crisp country walks and plenty of yin. You’ll be trained and certified as a Reiki I practitioner before the weekend is out, which is the level for self-practice. Sensing our internal space, connecting deeply with nature and the world around us we’ll begin to find real stillness.
All yurts have a maximum capacity of four with two sharing a double bed. If you are attending with a friend and are happy to share a bed, please make that known as you will be offered a small concession.
Otherwise, provisional rates are as follows:
- Sharing triple £450.00
- Private £650.00
Warning! This is not your average yoga retreat! The theme is come as you ARE, there’s no pretension, no spiritual prerequisite – just an open mind and an open heart. Join me on the mountainside jungle, deep in the heart of Bali. You can feel a pulse here, life is easy to connect to. We’re going to learn together, laugh together, cry together and journey together. Twelve days including excursions and days out. Slow vinyasa meets dance meets meditative trance meets silence.
Still working on a venue (literally – the villa I’m hoping for is yet under construction) but provisional rates are as follows:
- Sharing double £1890
- Private £2490
Flights are not included (but transfers are in from Denpasar in Bali, and in the UK train tickets from London and shuttle from the local station to our venue.)
What these descriptions don’t include is the space – rest assured that there is time for rest and recuperation on these retreats. All classes and events are optional, but included in your total price so I wholeheartedly recommend you attend as much as you want!
People come from all walks of life and enjoy many a varied diet. We’ll be serving vegetarian food on site in both retreats, made by our onsite chef.
All meals in the retreat space are included – if you have a special dietary requirement please let us know beforehand so that we can accommodate you.
I don’t operate a strict policy though. If you want to eat meat during that time you’re welcome outside the retreat to do so, but you can always try and see whether you like it for the short time that you’re there.
Alcohol and drugs
Due to the sensitive and meditative nature of reiki in ‘The Retreat’ alcohol and smoking are strictly prohibited.
During ‘The Journey’ you might venture outside the space and dance, drink, smoke a clove cigarette – all I ask is that during and inside the retreat you are free from substance and addiction.
It stands to reason that no illegal drugs are permitted in either location.
Pre-date registration can be made with a refundable £50 deposit. Until exact dates are finalised with local venues, this will save your spot.
Once we are firm on dates your place can be secured with a non-refundable 30% deposit, the full balance to be paid one month before. Any bookings made within one month before commencement must be paid in full.
For those who prefer to do so, monthly instalments are welcome.
Just get in touch via email to start the booking process.
