“I can’t thank you enough for such an awesome and amazing retreat. Jackie and I can not believe how lucky we were to have found you and to have shared space with you and the rest of the ladies who attended. It was a very special experience and one that I already want to repeat.
I don’t know why but since I arrived home I have been clearing out rubbish and shredding paper work. Crazy or what? It’s like I want to get rid of things that no longer serve me well to make room for yoga and new experiences. I did not expect that effect!
Many thanks to you all and I’m sure myself and Jackie will see you in the future.

Anna Brook: Hatha and Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher, Retreat Manager
Anna came to to yoga in 2001 and trained regularly with Edward Clark of Tripsichore in London for two years, in predominantly Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow. This deep immersion and the powerful benefits that came from it, encouraged her to explore many different styles of yoga. She has since trained with many of Brighton, London and India’s well established teachers in Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Dynamic, Jivamukti, Kundalini and Tantra yoga. She has a 200 Hour Training certificate from ‘Tribe’ with Yoga Alliance and is also a qualified Pregnancy Yoga Teacher (having trained with Sally Parkes) and HypnoBirthing Practitioner. She has also completed Uma Dinsmore-Tuli’s Yoga Nidra Foundation course. Her teaching is informed by all these styles, and has an equal respect for dynamic yoga as a form that powerfully detoxifies and realigns the body, as well as the more subtle practices of Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Pranayama. She thrives on the opportunity to share with others these ancient practices, that have had such a beneficial and transformative effect in her own life.
The cost of this retreat is £347pp for a shared room and £397 for a single room.
