Summer Yoga Retreat Day
Black Mountains Barns, Herefordshire
Sunday July 8th 10 - 6pm
£60 per person
I am delighted to be returning to Black Mountains Barns to hold another yoga day, and for the first time, during the Summer! This is such a beautiful location in Herefordshire that I couldn't wait until Autumn to teach there again.
This day will have a special focus on deepening your connection, not only with your body and breath, but also with the gifts that surround us in nature. We all know that a walk in the countryside away from noise, stimulation, responsibilities and deadlines, can have a profound effect on our mental health and wellbeing. So let's immerse ourselves a little deeper into the other benefits that being out in nature can bring.
We have a very lovely yoga studio to use, complete with mats, blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps and eye pillows. All we need for comfort and ease during the yoga practice. Also for our use is a very comfortable lounge with fabulous views for lunch and refreshments, as well as an outdoor space in the garden that has its own healing stream flowing through it.
The day will begin at 10am with a two hour yoga practice in the barn. This flowing energetic practice can be tailored to suit all levels, and there will be plenty of time for a very long savasana at the end. My aim for the morning will be to rejuvenate your senses, soul and body! Summer is the most perfect time for a physical yoga practice as we naturally have more energy and flexibility with a deeper sense of calm and joy.
Lunch at midday will be served by Carole-Anna, my lovely yoga chef. Fresh salads, baked breads, seasonal fruit and sweet treats will be on offer. Everything will be vegetarian with gluten free options. There will be a large supply of herbal teas on offer for you to enjoy anytime throughout the day.
After lunch I will be handing over to my guest Clare Barnes from "Artemis Rising". Clare is joining us to provide a small introduction in to the benefits of connecting with nature for healing purposes. This is healing for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual issues. Clare has studied biological sciences, specialising in microbiology and nutrition which helped her to understand the processes of the human body and nature, and now has a deep connection with trees and plants. During this really unique talk and demonstration with Clare, she will guide the group into creating their very own bespoke plant essence for healing to take home. This will take place outside in nature, surrounded by the beautiful countryside (weather permitting), and will provide an opportunity for you to switch off and deepen your intuition.

To follow, we may enjoy a sunny walk together if we are blessed with good weather, and then back to the barn/grounds for me to guide the group through some powerful breath work for various ailments, followed by a blissful meditation. As always, tea and cake before going home! If you would like to join myself and Clare for this gorgeous day, please get in touch soon to book your place. £30 non refundable deposit is required to secure your place, and there are 11 spaces available.
