We retreated, we enjoyed and my word we relaxed!


Imagine 48 hours that feels like 4 or 5 days.

Imagine a fire that is always on, same as the kettle and the supply of healthy snacks.

Imagine a serene, quiet farmhouse where you sleep soundly, you eat plentifully and your day is structured mostly by delicious meals, a wander to the coast line, and yoga, pranayama, yoga Nidra and meditation….

Oh it was lovely!

Retreat to Gayles, in the January sunshine

A HUGE pleasure to cover Sunnah’s retreat this January. Personally I loved the challenge that her schedule gave me; the inclusion of Yoga Nidra after dinner, the morning pranayama and mediation before breakfast, and the shatkarma/tratak ritual before we headed to bed on Saturday. What a calming, freeing schedule. And the surprise January sunshine, even through the 2 degrees morning frost, was GORGEOUS!

That and the donkeys 🙂

Gorgeous weekend. Gorgeous bunch of yogis; warm, sharing, a really cohesive and relaxed bunch.

Happy January folks, a great start to 2020 xxx

JANUARY 2020 // Weekend Wellness in East Sussex

January, 2020

Retreat to Gayles, East Sussex

I’m thrilled to announce that I will be teaching Sunnah’s Winter Weekend retreat in Eastbourne in January 2020. A coastal retreat with a short and simple commute from London, this weekend offers an escape from January blues and an opportunity to recharge after the Christmas chaos.

This retreat will be held at Gayles, www.retreattogayles.co.uk – a small retreat centre situated in outstanding countryside on the South Downs.  You will be staying, playing and eating around a thoughtfully maintained garden, next to gentle meadows offering stunning, panoramic views, allowing you space between activities and room to wander and reflect.

The self contained studio is close to the accommodation, bright, light and fully equipped. 

Expect warmth, cosiness, exceptional food and nourishing yoga, pranayama and meditation. You time. A true weekend of winter wellness to banish any festive overindulgence.


Includes yoga, accommodation, food, refreshments.
