What is yoga? A generic google search could a definition that says this: Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word “yuji,” meaning yoke or union. It's an ancient practice that brings together mind and body. It incorporates breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to encourage relaxation and reduce stress. Ok. Got it. It's for sure all of those things, in black and white. But in experience and expression, it's so much more. I know personally that yoga can mean different things to different people and of course there are many different forms, teachings of it to boot. For me, Yoga is an opportunity to learn more about myself and my own capabilities. It's a moment in time that I can be at one with me and listen to the wisdom my body hs to offer. Yoga has been an integral part of the summer retreat since the event's inception. Our instructors each have their own philosophies & knowledge to share so that perhaps you can deepen your practice or strengthen the meaning of - What is yoga is to you? Each class and or yogic workshop is ALL LEVELS. And now, let me introduce you to the women of the R3 retreat, who I love taking yoga with.

I've been teaching meditation (and metaphysical workshops) for over a decade and hosting the summer retreat at the High Street Guest House Deck for just as long. I'm keen on cultivating imagination and intuition as an art through breath work & visualization.
If you've attended the summer retreat before I want to personally thank you and invite you back for another amazing, fun filled event.
If you haven't spent time in the serene cover of laurels on the deck of the guest house, I'm inviting you to experience this amalgamation of self-care, play and respite that you not only need but deserve.
