Who is the course for?
The course is for anyone with a minimum of one year's yoga practice. Whether you're a yoga teacher wanting to become more highly skilled, with practical post graduate study, a health professional, or a keen student curious to know more, you will come to understand the underlying principles to apply these transformative, practical teachings to everyday life.
The year long Yoga Mentorship Programme is split into three modules, which can be taken in any order. Each module consists of 3x monthly in person Sunday retreats, making 9 full days in total, plus periodic group calls to support your practice.
Self study will be encouraged, where you will be able to intelligently choose and apply a tailored practice to bring you (and/or your students) back into a state of balance.
Sunday retreats will be held at Ryton Village Hall, just south of Shrewsbury. The floor to ceiling windows spill light into the hall and look out over incredible views of the Shropshire Hills.
Spring into Summer: Module 2
The Energetics of Yoga Practice
In our yoga practice we often narrow our focus to improving strength and flexibility in the physical body.
Prana is the fundamental life force that sustains our physical being. Where there are blockages in the flow of energy there will also be blockages in the physical system that sustains that energy. Slow mindful yoga practice, pranayama and meditation enables us to slow down and sense the subtler aspects of our being.
In this module we will come to understand the subtle architecture of the body and discover the ancient maps which are still beautifully relevant for us today. They will guide us back to our wellspring of life-force, to rediscover our original true nature of joyful equanimity and creative potential. We will address energetic issues such as anxiety, lethargy and that nagging feeling that something is wrong that we need to fix. Your yoga toolbox will be filled to the brim!
Each day retreat will consist of both yoga philosophy study sessions and guided yoga classes to practically embody this learning.. You will be offered home work to further integrate this knowledge into your day to day life.
Each retreat arrive anytime after 9.30am to share tea together.
Finishing at 4pm. Teas, snacks and vegan lunch provided.

2, although at least 1 years continual study of yoga is recommended.
2022 is a special year for me. It marks 25 years of continuous yoga teaching, although I've been studying mind body arts both personally and professionally for nearly 35 years. I wanted to celebrate this milestone by sharing some of the deeper teachings I've received over the years..
From month long meditation retreats in the Himalayas, to decades long study of tantric yoga and buddhism, I feel like I've come full circle to finally understand that connection to your own inner teacher, is the only way to truly meet with what is needed in each moment for wholeness.
I'll be drawing strongly from my what I've learned in 25 years of offering one to one yoga therapy clinics, group classes and retreats. And from the wealth of experience I've amassed from each and every one of the hundreds of students that I've walked this path with over the years.
