Please note that the October retreat at Yanley Court has been cancelled. Details of a new date and venue for the October retreat coming soon.


A day of nourishing yoga, delicious local home-cooked seasonal food, meditation and deep rest, in the quiet, peaceful Yanley Court Complementary Therapy Centre, Yanley Lane, Long Ashton BS41 6LB. 10am to 5pm.


Your intention for yoga may be to move better, to feel better, or simply to enjoy some relaxing time out from your day-to-day routine. However you approach it, one of the many gifts of yoga is that it can change your perception of yourself and the world around you in a beneficial way. When we feel happier, more relaxed and peaceful in ourselves, we feel more capable and at ease moving through the ever-changing world around us. 


Inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, Kate and Jess' approach to yoga encourages you to be less fixed on the shape you're making. Instead you’re invited to feel and observe your body as it moves, noticing subtle connections in the body, areas of tension and patterns of holding, that limit your mobility. We will then explore the use of gravity and the breath to both strengthen and release, and discover a renewed vitality and freedom of movement in the body. 


Kate and Jessica welcome everyone to these day retreats, from beginners to those with more experience of yoga. Our approach to practice complements other styles of yoga, and we aim to make it accessible to all.
