Winter Yoga Weekend at Fawcett Mill Fields

Friday 7 November- Sunday 9 November
Fawcett Mill Fields – Penrith

The weekend will consist of a meditation and yoga session each morning. There will be a choice of a gentle Hatha class with Leonie or a more challenging Jivamukti (yoga flow) class with Tara.

There will be an opportunity on Saturday afternoon to get out and explore the beautiful countryside on a lovely long walk, where we pass ancient stone monuments and an Andy Goldsworthy sculpture.

There will be a much-needed deep relaxation and light massage session after the walk. Throughout the weekend there will be plenty of homemade food to enjoy. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine, put your feet up and relax in the peaceful surroundings with good company.

There is also a four-person sauna for that post yoga sweat, and a couple of sitting rooms with open log fires for rest and relaxation.

Booking and payment 

The full price of each weekend retreat is £205. A non-refundable deposit of £50 will be required three months in advance of your chosen weekend/s to secure your place on the workshop, with the balance due six weeks in advance of the weekend.

New Lakes Weekend dates!

By | Blog | No Comments



We have already sold out our Lakes weekend retreats for July and October this year, so we’ve decided to put on an extra weekend! The dates are 7-9 November, which means you can break up the dark days of winter with a cosy rural yoga break. It’s so lovely to be able to relax straight after your practice by a roaring fire and enjoy being served tasty, warming homemade vegetarian meals. We will be staying in beautiful Fawcett Mill again in Penrith. Once you’ve been you’ll understand why so many people want to return again. If you would like to reserve your place please get in touch with Tara Barton on 07821 607 505. There are a couple of single rooms as well available at a supplement, which tend to get snapped up quickly. I’ll also be posting up more details about this weekend in my events section.

By | Blog | No Comments


Here are a few dates for your diary – Julia Osbeck and I will be co-hosting another yoga workshop on Sunday 8th June at Dean Row Village Hall in Wilmslow. The theme this time is ‘Hip Love’! Then there are two workshops coming up in August at Fallowfield Union Chapel, both on Saturday mornings. The first one will be hosted by Tara and myself, on the topic of the psoas muscle, the deepest muscle in the human body. The second date is 23rd August and this workshop will include both pilates and yoga, more details to follow very soon!

update on class changes and forthcoming workshop

By | Blog | No Comments

Hi there,

From this week (April 1st) my Didsbury Hatha Yoga class is now taking place on a Tuesday evening. It’s 7.30-8.45pm at Cavendish School West Didsbury, and costs £6.50 or £5.50 for concessions. Spare mats are provided and there is a large free car park around the back of the school that you can use. This class is great for those people who have a busy lifestyle and prefer to drop in to class when they can to rejuvenate their body and mind. It’s an ideal place for you to begin your yoga practice or to work on your technique and try new things if you’re more experienced. Each class is a little different and offers both the chance to relax and some energising physical challenges to strengthen and stretch you. Come join this friendly, laid back group anytime you fancy, just find your way to the main school entrance someone will be on hand to greet you and show you where to go.

Also this Sunday I’m teaching a 2 hour yoga intensive workshop with Julia Osbeck at Cranage Hall. There are just a few places left if you would like to join us – check the events section and then email me to reserve your place: [email protected]

Finally the July Lake District yoga retreat with myself and Tara Barton is now full but there are still some places left for the October weekend. Get in touch soon if you would like to book as these weekends are filling up quite quickly.

Namaste :)
