Weekend Yoga Retreat 13th -15th March 2020


After the success of last year I am really looking forward to holding my second retreat at the beautiful Willersley Castle in Cromford, Derbyshire for a weekend of Yoga & Relaxation. If you have never been on a retreat before or this is something you have been considering then this is perfect occasion. As well as taking some well deserved time out for yourselves you will have the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice in stunning surroundings with “like minded”people.












On a personal level I find retreats so beneficial & aim to experience at least one during the year to give myself the opportunity to “tune in”  & to take a little time out. I’ve realised that this is so integral to my well being & makes me a better teacher.

Willersley Castle is a Grade 11 listed Castle which was originally built for Sir Richard Arkwright a mill owner & industrialist. It’s set in sixty acres of beautiful grounds overlooking the River Derwent & has an on site indoor swimming pool which is available for our use.

There will be free time during the weekend to explore the grounds, walk into Cromford, visit the neighbouring areas or just relax.


What students said about the last retreat:


"Having just 10 hours yoga practice under my belt I was impressed by the skillfull way Yvonne built up the sessions to prepare us for some challenging postures and modified throughout to suit the needs of all participants.
I felt confident in Yvonne’s expertise and was pleasantly surprised by what my body managed and how good it felt afterwards.
Looking forward to doing it again." Rachel
