Ashtanga Primary Series (am) and a themed class (pm) Workshops
The next session is 17 September: (11am-1pm) Ashtanga Primary Series talk through led class.
(2-4pm) A strong Hatha Yoga practice, including some challenging options with asanas to give us an all over workout, but with a special emphasis on hips. In this session we’ll explore how we can dedicate our practice to others and will include pair work and guided meditation. Followed by a deep yoga nidra (guided relaxation).
NB. The sessions are physically challenging, so are suitable for over 16’s with a regular yoga practice or yoga newbies who are already strong and fit (eg. athletes wishing to work on their flexibility, core strength and spirituality.)
These will run on the penultimate Saturday in each month (except August and December) in 2016, 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm, £16/£13 per session or £30/£24 for both:

Book and pay online
The Great Hall at Cholsey Meadows is located south of Oxford along the River Thames
These typically start with a morning Hatha class, followed by a hearty brunch. You will have free time during the day to relax, explore, take a massage or otherwise do your own thing. There may be optional meditation sessions during the day, followed by an evening yoga session (typically Ashtanga or Vinyasa flow) and then supper. I only pick venues that provide a great level of comfort, accommodation, food... and we bring the fun!
You can have a room to yourself (for a single supplement), or if you want to
share but aren't bringing a friend, we will do our best to match you up with a
lovely yoga room-mate.
Sultan Palas, Dalyan Delta, Turkey, August 22-29 2016 from £470
This family-run guest house is a real jewel and is situated in a secluded location near to the Dalyan Delta in the Mediterranean region of South West Turkey.
A frequent boat service takes guests across the river to the hotel thus preserving its tranquillity.
Boats are readily available on the gently flowing Dalyan River and provide an opportunity to head downstream to Iztuzu turtle beach through the labyrinth of channels alongside the reed beds of the Dalyan Delta or upstream to the renowned Thermal Baths and Lake Köycegiz - or just to wander through Dalyan enjoying the cafe culture and the views across the river.

Find the style that's right for you:
- Ashtanga classes
are energetic, yet help to develop a sense of calm, inner peace, and wellbeing. This is a fast-moving style of yoga, linking deep, cleansing breathing with a structured sequence of postures designed to stretch you physically and mentally. You will be led through the sequence and given options to suit your level. Because of the pace, it is best for those who have reasonable fitness, or who already practice other forms of yoga. Guaranteed to make you sweat!
- Vinyasa flow classes
are a free-format variation on the Ashtanga style, linking breath and movement together. Again, you will be guided through the practice, with options to suit.
- Hatha classes
are at a more gentle pace, with static holds to strengthen and give an all over stretch. Typically I will include specific breathing (pranayama) and meditative exercises to de-stress and relax afterwards.
