Retreats & workshops
Latest retreat: A luxury winter yoga retreat in the beautiful Sussex countryside
I have successfully run retreats around East Sussex, at Fair Oak Farm and ‘A Sussex House’ near Lewes. They were amazing! Both sold out and the timetables were packed with Yin, Vinyasa, Qigong and meditation. I am looking to Greece for my next retreat this coming Spring 2022.
My chef, Georgia makes the most delicious Vegan food and works on tailoring the food for each retreat depending on the time of year and theme of the class schedule.
I have been asked to come back to both locations and am hoping for retreats in Costa Rica, Canada and Mexico in the coming years.
Yoga and meditation workshops
I have run free outdoor workshops along with my friend Lina from the Neuroscience department at Sussex.
We had two sessions outside in the sun, one for beginners and one for more advanced practitioners. The sessions involved Yoga, Qi Gong, and meditation techniques as well as a talk with Q+A halfway through. The participants filled out a questionnaire after the event so we could gather some stats about their experience. It was interesting! A short movie of the event and an interview with myself and Lina coming soon! (Along with a full-length video of the full event so you can try it yourself!)
There are loads of studies on Yoga and meditation at the moment and I am keen to stay on top of new research. It’s always good to bring this information to the public as I believe it gets more people involved in practicing it 🙂
I run workshops and classes for ex-veterans who have suffered from their experiences in the army. I believe Yoga should be made more accessible, so it can help them manage and cope with afflictions such as blindness, missing limbs and PTSD.
The video adjacent shows Charlie Parkinson, an ex-veteran, with blindness sharing his experience of yoga after a class I tailor-made for him.
We are hoping to get charity funding to make videos and workshops available for ex-veterans.
I am very much open to suggestions for running retreats and workshops near you and all over the world so do get in touch with your ideas! I am qualified to run CPD (continual development credit points) for teachers also as I am a senior teacher with Yoga Alliance.
