Donna Southwell India 2014

The peaceful practice of Yoga will transform your life.

19 years ago ashtanga yoga transformed my life. Since then, the physical and mental benefits of daily practise have rewarded me with strength, flexibility and focus. 15 years ago I decided to share my practice and it’s philosophy with others. Over the years that I have been teaching I have seen many others gain enormously from this practice. I want to continue to share these benefits with as many people as possible whether they be dedicated students who want to study in the traditional Mysore method or those new to ashtanga yoga or yoga entirely.

Yoga & Climbing Retreats

Peak District Yoga Retreat

Ashtanga Yoga, Rock Climbing & Hiking in the Peaks
7 - 9 June 2019

Join me for our 8th weekend of yoga, rock climbing and hiking set for the first time in the heart of the Peak District. We will be based at the Hollowford Centre set in large peaceful grounds on the edge of the picturesque Derbyshire village of Castleton.

We start each day with Ashtanga Yoga - either Mysore style self practice or a led class. After breakfast we head out into the Peaks - Ben, our mountain leader, will take you out on an adventure to explore this beautiful area.

Or choose to head to the nearby craggs with rock climbing instructor, Mike, to try out rock climbing for the first time or to help improve your skills whatever level you are at. We then return to the centre to relax with restorative yoga and end the day chatting around the campfire.

These weekends are all about taking some time out for yourself. Everything we do is about getting to know a beautiful area of the Uk, getting to know yourself and getting to know other people.

£230

Prices include accommodation, all activities, instruction and equipment and loads of delicious vegan and vegetarian food plus a lot of cake!!
