I’m really happy to announce that I will be returning to the beautiful Gradbach Mill on Friday November 3rd – Sunday November 5th 2023 to run another weekend yoga retreat.

This will be the second time I have used this lovely space to accommodate a group of students and lead them through a weekend of yoga. Last years retreat was really rewarding to teach and the feedback from students on the Mill and it’s surroundings was really positive:

“It was such a lovely weekend, thank you. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, the yoga was great and Gradbach Mill was a perfect location.”

” I also have bought a bolster, bricks and strap now that I know what wonderful stuff can be done using them. I so enjoyed the entire set up, the people I met, the environment, the  duration of classes, timetable and the opportunity to do a hike. And the food was great! “


The Venue

The Mill itself is stunning and is situated on the banks of the River Dane in Staffordshire. It is a former silk & flax Mill & is full of rich history and heritage. The space has been beautifully restored & is set within 16 acres of land with access to the beautiful Peak District & lots of walks nearby.

Over the years the Mill has had various owners and uses. Then, in 1978, the site was acquired by the YHA and transformed into a hostel and hosted many travellers from all over the world. It is now privately owned & is a beautiful retreat space.


The weekend will begin at 16:30 on Friday 3rd November & end at 13:00 on Sunday 5th November.

During the weekend some of the yoga/meditation sessions will be optional.

Included in the weekend will be:

Two evening meals, two breakfasts & two lunches. Food will be vegetarian. Coffee & tea will be available throughout the weekend.

See why people in Beeston and Nottingham are enjoying Yoga with Yvonne Patrick.

“I’m so pleased Yvonne teaches nearby. It’s great to find a yoga teacher who is knowledgable, enthusiastic and keen to develop her students to their best potential. I feel that Yvonne puts thought into her classes each week to ensure her students experience well-rounded and well-balanced development. 

Yvonne encourages me to put in the effort to improve my practice in a way that doesn’t make me feel too pressured. She also injects light-hearted humour into the classes which means that students warm to her and get to know fellow students well too. The mood of the class is a supportive and welcoming one which is definitely encouraged by Yvonne’s personality.”
