'Yoga is the technology of upgrading, activating and refining your inner energies for the ultimate possibilities'. Sadhguru.

Meet the team:

* Florence Achery will be your hostess and holding space for the duration of the retreat.

Florence is a sound healer from London. She graduated from the College Of Sound Healing and works with 432hz crystal singing bowls and Tibetan singing bowls.

Sound healing is incredibly powerful. It enables you to fully switch off and let go of the “monkey chatter“. It is known to help with anxiety, insomnia, stress and can rebalance the nervous system and heal on a deep cellular level.

* * Karen Newis will be your yoga teacher.

Karen has years of experience teaching yoga and is a well known and loved practitioner from Sedbergh.

"Yoga calms the mind and body and is accessible to everybody. During a yoga session you may experience movement, breath work and time to reflect.

I will guide you through your class with kindness and humour. I’ve trained in Vinyasa Flow with Shiva Rea, restorative yoga with Anna Ashby as well as in Vini and Hatha yoga.

As well as being a passionate yoga teacher, I’m an outdoor enthusiast and a reluctant gardener.

Whether you are a seasoned yogi or you are new to the practice, time on the mat is always time well spent."

* * * Ruth Clayton will guide you through a Mandala designing and drawing workshop.

Ruth qualified as a Graphic Designer at Leeds Metropolitan University, specialising in illustration, in 1986. She then gained a teaching qualification at Manchester University.

Since then she has spent time as an Art teacher working in high schools and tertiary Colleges. Ruth ran the successful Art studio, ‘Wickerfish’ at Cedar Farm Galleries, Mawdesley in Lancashire for 12 years where she taught adults to paint and draw as well as displaying her own paintings to sell. She now shares a studio with her partner Stuart Gray at Farfield Mill in Sedbergh, Cumbria where they work and sell their paintings.

She mainly specialises in watercolour with the addition of gouache. Ruth likes to try and capture the energy of water in all its forms from crashing waves to babbling brooks and cascading waterfalls. She loves the way that water reflects the surrounding force of nature with all its colours and intricate patterns. She also loves to paint hedgerows and undergrowth and uses many techniques to achieve the results she wants ranging from clingfilm to rice!!

Why a Mandala drawing workshop ?

Mandalas are an ancient art form that originated in Asia about two thousand years ago.

‘Mandala’ is, in fact, a Sanskrit word for ‘circle'.

Designing your own circular Mandala can be both inspirational and therapeutic, as well as being a valuable stress-reducing pastime.

Unlock your creativity and discover this mindful practice.

Ruth will provide the materials for you to start a small Mandala using watercolour and pen.

She will demonstrate the process and start the activity with a short, guided meditation. She suggests working in silence as this quiet creativity can help you delve deeper into your inner thoughts and, being similar to a meditation, can help you to discover far more about your true self.
