About me: 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 and a whole lotta love.

I like to make yoga accessible to every body encouraging self respect and kindness, exploration and liberation.

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.

Terms and conditions for Retreats

The deposit secures your place, the remainder being due before the end of Feb for Spring and the end of July for Autumn.  All moneys refundable as long as someone else is able to take your place minus £30 admin fee for being irritating. Most of my past events have sold out and had waiting lists so all should be hunky dory.
