A life lived with purpose is a life filled with meaning and contentment.

We have use of the fully modernised local community hall as well as the extensive grounds at St Marks, an exceptional guest house with lovely welcoming hosts. St Marks is located near Sedbergh, which is nestled between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. There will be ample time to explore the stunning local countryside.

Autumn Yoga Retreat ~ a long weekend
to really restore, revitalise and heal
A long weekend – Fri to Monday inclusive. October 12 to 14. You can arrive late afternoon of Thurs 11 or on Friday morning – the weekend officially starting at 11 am Friday morning. Activities and food will be on offer from Thursday evening for us early birds. The long weekend will include:

I have worked as a therapist for over 25 years and practised yoga for over 35. The world urgently needs change and it starts with us. We get down to this serious business primarily through lots of laughter.
Barmoor is a huge rambling Quaker house set in the wilderness of the North York Moors. Peace and beauty abounds. There will be plenty of opportunity to enjoy free time – walks outside, reading by roaring fires. Lunch and dinner will be freshly made by the ridiculously talented Kate of Mindful Cooking. Help yourself breakfasts available every morning.
Beginners to experienced practitioners welcome.
£252. Maximum 16 guests – sharing twin and triple rooms and one room for four. The house can sleep a lot more but I like to encourage a sense of spaciousness together with a little happy community of friendship and ease.
