Masterclasses and Retreats

Yoga Masterclasses

The masterclasses are an opportunity for you to work a little deeper, looking more into the areas of yoga that we may just touch on in class.  They are a way of helping you develop your own practice at home, or just time to learn something new.  The classes are suitable for everyone, unless stated otherwise.  Please book onto the days as soon as possible to make sure you secure your place.  Contact me here. 

All the following masterclasses will be held at Breadsall Memorial Hall, Brookside Road, Breadsall DE21 5LF, from 1430 to 1700.  Your investment for each is £25.

17th August – Fund Raiser for Nepal.  Kathy and I are running this day to help raise funds for the Tiffin Club we are supporting in the village for the children…helping them have a nourishing lunch whilst at school.  The day will be in 2 halves…Dru Yoga in the morning and Mala bracelet making with meditation, mantra and a sound bath in the afternoon.  You can attend one session or both…completely up to you.  Numbers will be limited as we will be using the hall in Aston-on-Trent.  If interested please get in touch.  Each session will be £25 or £40 if coming to both.

1st September – Lessons from the Bhagavad Gita…using this wonderful text to bring some more useful yoga tool kit ideas for modern living.

5th October – Resilience…how we can use our yoga practice to help us be more resilient or even to develop it.

7th December – Yoga & Sound Bath.  Fresh back from my travels and training in sound therapy I look forward to sharing some of my new skills!  We will consider energy as we work in all aspects; from our asana practice through to our relaxation.  Suitable for anyone with at least a years regular yoga practice.

4th January 2025 – Relax and Rejuvenate…its that time of year where we gather ourselves together for the bright future of a new year.

15th February 2025 – Working with the element of Air with Kathy Field.

8th March 2025 – this could be a creative yoga session!  Ideas are forming!!!


Yoga Retreat

Spring Yoga Retreat

March 14th to 16th 2025 – waiting list only

If you would like to be added to the waiting list please do contact me.

After 10 years of using Wortley Hall in South Yorkshire, I felt I needed a change.  And I think I have found a beautiful new home for our Spring Retreat weekends.  This has been an emotional change but I am trusting my gut instinct and really hope you are still willing to join me on this magical, nurturing and healing weekend.  In glorious Leicestershire countryside.

Our new venue is on the outskirts of Loughborough, less than an hour from Derby.  It is a beautiful old Manor House, which we will have the sole use of during the weekend. It is an established centre for mindfulness, philosophy, and meditation retreats. With flexible indoor and outdoor spaces, we will have so much space to use.  I have also hired the most lovely couple to do our food for us which will be 100% vegetarian; following the ethos of the venue.

The Hall was built in the 1870s and is set in 30 acres of woodland and gardens.  There are so many opportunities to walk into the Charnwood Forest and Beacon Hill.  The lawn will be fabulous for outdoor practice if weather allows…and there are plenty of sitting spaces to just enjoy the far reaching countryside views.  I spotted a redwood tree on the edge of the garden. And in an area they are clearing, are two huge gorgeous pigs!

The house is beautiful.  Our yoga room has far reaching views over the gardens and hills (and a working fire place).  There is a conservatory and an airy room next door ideal for our artistic session!  And a further quiet room for just being with a book.  We will have open fires in the evening.  And the dining room looks over the garden.  The bedrooms are all airy with comfy beds.  Some rooms have baths, but even if you choose to have a room with shared bathroom there is a bath!

£360 per person for single room with shared bathroom (6 rooms available)
£380 per person in a twin ensuite room (3 rooms available)
£390 for single ensuite room (11 rooms available)
