Wilderness and Yoga Retreat

Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire UK  18th-22nd July 2019


This is a call out to all of you who can’t make it across to the Far East but can make it up North! Come and join me for five days of journeying through Yoga Ecology. Explore how to tune into the power of Nature wherever you may find yourself and use your practice as that reminder that there is nothing else to attain. You are perfect expression of the utter beauty of Life itself.

The retreat is focused on incorporating Freedom Through Movement on and off the mat. We will explore meditation in motion through asana and breath, and in the rivers, waterfalls and fells of the Yorkshire Dales. The Yorkshire Dales in particular is wild, stunningly beautiful and will offer and incredible venue to literally soak up the wisdom of these teachings and life-force of the land.  It is my intention that this retreat will both rejuvenate you and inspire you in whatever creative endeavors are unfolding in your life right now.  It will be roots!  We will glamp and camp, practice outside, walk in the hills and eat local veggie food.  It is open to all practitioners who just want to gather with likeminded souls and immerse in the summer light and gifts of life. In the words of William Blake (who barely travelled 30 mile beyond his house in his entire life):  “To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour” ….this will be the ethos of our retreat, the foundation of exploration and celebration of all that life has gifted us inside and out!

A wonderful opportunity for lovers of Yoga and livers of life to practice and study together. Suitable for all levels of practitioners from teachers in need of some inspiration and beginners eager to travel beyond a conventional modern day yoga class.


Each day includes:

  • Extended morning practice: Postures, mantra, mudra and pranayama
  • Long walks and practice through utter wild beauty
  • Presentations on Yoga Ecology and the Healing Arts:  The wisdom of the womb, our menstrual cycles and life cycles, an earth/body friendly yoga manifesto.
  • Evening practice: Yin and Yoga Therapeutics

Simply come ready to retreat into Nature, anchor in your heart and gift yourself this time to plug into the power of this land.
