Clearview Retreat

 Finding comfort and ease, in yoga and in life

18th-20th October 2019

Patanjali, one of the most recognised ancient writers of yogic philosophy, wrote that we should seek sthira – comfort, and sukha – ease in our asana. These two qualities allow us to find the right balance of effort and surrender required to allow us to achieve the maximum benefits from our practice.

As well as being a wonderful guide to working effectively on the yoga mat, these qualities allow us to manage our lives beyond our practice. Finding them in yoga teaches us to find them in work, family, health, leisure and all other areas of our lives.

Over this weekend we will explore the concepts of sthira and sukha through asana, pranayama and meditation practices as well as recognising them in the natural surroundings of Clearview Retreat and reflecting on how they could be applied in other aspects of our living and being.

    I am thinking of booking your Feb retreat at clearview for myself and my mum. My mum has never practised yoga so is a total beginner however has practised meditation. Would the retreat be suitable?

      Hi Charlotte,
      What a lovely idea, it is lovely for mothers and daughters to share a retreat exprience together. It works better if students have some yoga experience at retreats simply because complete beginners require more instruction and most people who come to retreats have some experience. I do have some students coming who have only a little experience so I’d be more than happy for you to both come along if you can take your mum to a couple of beginner level classes beforehand. My teaching style is very broad so suitable for beginners through to those with more experience.
      Hope to see you in February,
