Give yourself the time to Retreat. Self care and body-mind maintenance. A morning or day just for you, enjoy your yoga with likeminded folk. Invest in yourself to re-set yourself, re-balance and let go of the daily hubbub to find that calm within yourself? Varying themes for morning or full day.

The Retreat

Give yourself a day so time to experiment and hone techniques that a weekly class just does not allow for. Many students describe the workshops as a rare treat, giving themselves some ‘me – time’. The groups are small and held in quiet locations with green space around.

Really delighted to be offering delicious food hand made by Sharon Allen. Full days we offer a fresh and nourishing lunch with salads and hot dish and complete day with a cake and teas. Mornings we have a wholesome tasty soup with scones. Let us know of any allergies or food intolerances so we can cater for your needs. All include refreshments.

The Old Headington Village Hall (was Parish hall)

Tucked away on Dunstan Road, Headington, OX3 9BY, just across the road from Ruskin College. Advantageously the garden here is great for al fresco yoga allowing for our summers though. There is parking and additional 2 hour parking further up on St Andrews Road (Changes from Dunstan to St Andrews where links to Osler Road as T’ junction).
Plenty of space in car park and bike racks, local buses City8, 280 and Brookes1 to Headington shops; and bus10 to JR hospital with longer walk across site.

Cumnor Old School Hall

Seems so far away yet just outside the ring-road. Our regular home for yoga and workshops. The Old School Hall,  is at High Street, Cumnor village, OX2 9PE. Just up the hill from Botley on the west of Oxford or come in to this delightful village from A420. The stone hall is in the centre of the village on the high street, part of the same building it is at the back of the post-office/general shop with ample car-park shared with the church. Entrance is at the back from the car-park, come in and straight ahead to the double doors.
Oxford Bus no.City4 (destination Abingdon) or S9 (destination Wantage).

Cumnor Old School mat ready

Extend your Yoga Workshop into a Weekend away

Easily create a whole weekend around the workshop, and stay in the city of Oxford or discover the lovely countryside around Oxford? Please email and I can suggest some B&Bs or hotels. Thinking you would like to attend one of these or have a suggestion for a future workshop please get in touch.

Meditation and Yoga Workshop

Always the regular Yoga Workshops all include some meditation but there is an opportunity for a morning workshop just focused on meditation. This introduction will offer gentle movement to warm up and exercises to enhance different postures for meditation. Breath is the basis for meditation & we will look at different themes to develop your meditation upon: concentration, working with chakras, mantras and/or simply silence.
