Restorative Yoga

Yoga for Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia
Friday 22nd June, 7-9pm
The Scouts Hut, Springfield Lane, Weybridge

Life sometimes seems to blow us off course, how can we drop anchor in turbulent times?

In this special workshop we will investigate yogic approaches that help us deal with the effects of stress and anxiety as well as practical ways to cope with insomnia.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners from newcomers to the more experienced and those recovering from injury or illness.
We will practice a combination of classic restorative yoga with full set ups, breathing techniques, meditation and deep relaxation.

Places are limited to just 12 so that you get plenty of individual attention from myself and my experienced assistants. We will have double the props as normal to use.

Please bring your your mat, something to cover your eyes (an eye mask, eye pillow or scarf) and 2 blankets. All bolsters and blocks will be provided but if you have these please bring too.

£35pp, to book please email me [Email address: hello #AT# rmyoga.co.uk - replace #AT# with @ ].

Join me for a week of yoga and sunshine at beautiful Santillàn, near Malaga, Spain from 12-19th August 2018.

I will be offering twice daily yoga sessions; flow in the morning and restorative and meditation in the afternoon, at a stunning yoga venue, Centro Santillán  twenty minutes up in the hills from Malaga with a state-of-the-art yoga shala with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea. All levels of yoga experience are welcome. Santillán received a glowing revue in the Guardian earlier this year, read it here.

Set in a tranquil, secluded location, Santillán is a large mediterranean paradise with extensive gardens, a saltwater swimming pool with a spacious sun deck and a variety of hillside walks. The countryside location is wonderfully peaceful, Santillán is surrounded by mountains and has breathtaking sea views, with the beach of Torre de Benagalbon only ten minutes away by car. There will be one afternoon off (i.e no afternoon practice) mid-week; this would be a great opportunity to venture in to Malaga (around 20 minutes away by car) with its Cathedral, Roman Theatre and Pompidou Centre plus plenty of shopping and dining opportunities or explore the gravity defying walk at Caminito del Rey or simply relax at one of the many sandy beaches nearby.

The bedrooms are spacious and ensuite, all rooms have large balconies offering stunning views. Double, twin and single accommodation are all available. Facials, massages and shiatsu will all be on offer during your stay. You will eat well with three plentiful vegetarian meals a day, food is grown locally, freshly prepared and delicious. Gluten free diets can be accommodated by request. For photos of Santillán please click here. 

The prices are:

early bird (before 31st December 2017) £895pp for shared accommodation or £1195 for single occupancy.

From 1st January 2018 the price is £945pp for shared or £1245 for single occupancy. The price includes en-suite accommodation, three meals a day and all yoga sessions.

 To book a non-refundable deposit of £300 is required, with the balance in full payable by 1st June 2018.   Flights and transfers are not included. Santillán is easily accessible from Malaga airport via car or taxi. Based on four people sharing a taxi, transfers would cost around 25 euros per person both ways.

I am returning to beautiful Tilton House near Lewes in East Sussex for a yoga weekend next year (2018), from Friday 14th- Sunday 16th September.

The yoga weekend will encompass asana (both slow flow and restorative), pranayama, mantra, mudra and yoga philosophy.

Tilton House is located in a stunning, unspoilt setting on the South Downs, just in front of Firle Beacon, one of the highest points on the Downs which rolls back to the track from the door. It’s no coincidence that the Bloomsbury Set, Virginia Woolf, Maynard Keynes, T.S.Elliot and other visionaries took their inspiration from wandering the wild ancient landscape to escape, muse and reflect. During this retreat you will have time to totally unwind around our yoga sessions; you could enjoy the countryside by relaxing in a hammock in the pretty gardens or walking the Downs, visiting nearby Charleston, enjoying a holistic massage or treatment on site or unwinding in the cedar wood sauna.

All accommodation (double, twin or triple rooms), yoga classes and meals (freshly prepared and vegetarian) are included in the price of £375pp.

There is a £150 (non refundable) deposit to pay that will secure your place with the balance in full settled by 31st July 2018. Please email me [Email address: ruth #AT# ruthy.plus.com - replace #AT# with @ ] to book.
