Yoga Study Day Retreat

This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a complete practice of active and restorative postures, seated breathing practices and meditation.

Overall it will be a restful and meditative experience and a chance to go deeper into both the theory and practice of yoga within in a friendly group.

The workshops take place at Shilbottle Community Hall. We can accommodate up to three participants from further afield in our guest suite here at A Space to Be.

Each yoga day is structured around a philosophical theme and is aimed at those with some yoga experience already.

Attendance at six study days along with some reflective practice and and 1:1 mentoring is roughly equivalent to a 60 hour foundation course (or personal development course for teachers). Please contact us if you are interested in this option.
