How wonderful to be back in person for our longer retreat sessions of yoga. For 2022 we are keeping to a longer morning retreat of three hours. They are held in my regular halls both Cumnor Old School and The Old Headington Village Hall. Why not treat yourself to a three hour yoga workshop with time to really re-balance, let go of the daily hubbub and find that calm within yourself? Be assured we still have Covid Protocols so keep distance and safe.
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. Check out each venue and directions lower on this page.“Walking away we should only leave footsteps in the sand”.

Saturday Venues and Directions for Yoga Workshops
The Hatha Yoga Workshops are held in different halls, each with their own character in and around Oxford. This local landmark the shark is just off the main road in Headington!
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).
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. Cumnor is 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. Finding the entrance is at the back from the car-park, come in and straight ahead to the double doors.
The Horspath Hub
The Hub Community Centre, Horspath Village, OX33 1RP
The former chapel is a lovely space to enjoy yoga. As you drive from Oxford, from ring road take Horspath Road, you leave behind the Cowley Mini Factory and industrial area and shortly come into fields and countryside. Coming into the villlage, (becomes Oxford Road) you can park in the village hall carpark on left &/or continue round the sharp bend the Hub also on your left with the village green to your right. Parking on Manor Farm road, best to park on the shop side.
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.
