Attending a yoga retreat is much more than a day, weekend or week away - although it can be just that! However I have seen how these immersive experiences can transform people. Time slow downs and we enjoy long movement practices that nurture our bodies, we tend to our breath in a way that feels like coming home, we eat healthy nourishing food that is more than fuel, it's love. And lastly, we play in nature. From forest walking to cold water dipping, we reconnect to joy, awe and curiosity. All this has a lasting effect on our nervous systems and we leave a little more connected.
Take some time this Summer away from demanding schedules or concrete jungles and join me in the Scottish Highlands for truly transformative experiences.
My retreats are for all levels - they are beginner friendly. I teach an all levels style of yoga that encourages one to find variations of poses and movements that work for them.

A weekend of Joy in Cairngorms National Park
Are you looking to reignite or rediscover Joy in your life? Join me this July in Aviemore to allow uncertainty, tension and tightness to release as we immerse ourselves in yoga, swimming, play, self care, nourishing food and connection.
Enjoy twice daily yoga practices that include movement, breathwork and meditation. Creative, playful and fiery morning practising igniting the fire within. Sweet heart opening yin/restorative practises in the evening. Optional afternoon workshops. I've designed this weekend around one word: Joy. I've found myself asking 'Where is the Joy?' lately. And finding answers in the simplest of mindful practises, subtle connections to nature and inviting in play. So I'd love to share these things with you and more, to not just live, but thrive this summer.
“Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh.
