a lonnng weekend 🙂
yoga, nature, sauna, arts/crafts, crystal and gong baths and comm-unity.
5pm Thursday October 3 to 2pm Sunday 6
Littondale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales
One place has freed up as someone now unable to attend: £268.
We’re staying in a simple but lovely camping barn which has a Finnish SAUNA! Fantastic. The traditional stone barn was converted by local craftsmen who have “retained the original charm and features of the buildings while providing very comfortable accommodation to the highest standards”. Excellent. ie its not posh, but its loved and lovely. I’ve been to check it out – its a good space which offers us lots of room to play 🙂
Located in the centre of the Yorkshire Dales – absolute peace and beauty. Great walks all around. Private field to yoga in. No wifi (yay!) but we do have communication via a payphone (remember those?)
Limited to 16 places. 8 bedrooms (can sleep 40 but I’m aiming for the usual friendly small community that grows at each of my retreats). Flourish with the spirit of relaxed friendship and laughter and cherish the chance to just to simply be yourself, loved for who you are.
Basic bunk beds with pillows – we bring our bedding/sleeping bags, towels etc. Clearly just one person per bunk. We might be kids on the inside but our adult bodies need good sleep. Its great to curtain off your bunk so its like a four poster bed, nice, private and snug. And fun.
Our itinerary will depend on the weather but will include:
- Yoga in Nature ~ experience how your practice becomes much freer and easier outside
- Dance Yoga
- music to move you and help you explore the shapes made by the body.
- Restorative Yoga and yoga nidra – much needed deep, deep rest
- Meditation – walking and seated ~ the real aim of our practice, embracing connection and transformation.
- Art from the Heart – guest tutor and downright lovely person Angela Dawson is coming to empower one and all with colour and paint.
- Yayyyyy! The very brilliant and beautiful Tanya Carter is coming to share some good vibrations and sound healing with us via her magical gong bath.
Fully catered with lots of delicious food, drinks and treats .. even a glass of Ayurvedic mulled wine ~ yum. Lots of free time to play too.
In the spirit of community and with the intention of karma yoga, it is hoped that each participant will happily help as they so feel moved during our time together. Many hands make light work. 🙂 This means I can keep costs down and make the retreat more accessible to all.

3 retreats being planned for next year – a long weekend in Spring (reboot, reset, resolve), a long weekend in Summer (Thurs 4 June to Sun 7th – yoga, dance and creativity in the heart of the Dales) and another one in Autumn (restore, recharge, recallibrate). The extra day and night make all the difference … All in beloved beautiful Yorkshire.
