3- 5 January 2020 An invitation to retreat in a magical venue - Brinkburn Northumberland - set in a secluded wooded ravine on the banks of the river Coquet. Our group intention will be to connect with each other and with our '2020 Vision' - diving deep into yoga and meditation practice to connect with an inner vision, calling or intention that can be carried forward into the rest of the year.

Work is now well underway on our extension and, as many of you already know, we have taken some time off this summer so we can enjoy our campervan and leave the builders to get on with some of the messy stuff! Although it is an extension, the new rooms are being built on the same footprint as our old coal sheds so in fact the building is not getting a large amount bigger, there will just be more usable space - and we've even been able to recycle the bricks!
We are not taking residential bookings this autumn as we are having some building work done. Bookings will re-open via Airbnb in early 2020. We do however have a programme of yoga classes and workshops running for the autumn, both here and at our lovely local community hall.
Saturday 31 August, 10am - 1pm, Shilbottle Community Hall, £25 This extended morning practice will include active and restorative asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), yoga nidra (guided relaxation) and meditation.

As a way of marking the seasons we have been creating beach labyrinths as a family and we would like to invite you to join us. Each session will begin with a period of collecting stones, shells and other natural materials to mark out and decorate the path of the labyrinth. We will then gather for some movement and meditation before embarking on our individual journeys into the labyrinth.

Dear Friends We are recently returned from northern Thailand where we enjoyed an adventurous family holiday in the mountainous province of Mae Hong Son on the hunt for sunflowers, hot springs, and elephants of course. We also revisited some of our old haunts in Chiang Mai, and Lucy took a course in Chi Nei Tsang… Continue reading Newsletter Winter 2019
