Yoga Retreats & Yoga Days
Saturday 18th June 2022
A blissful day of Yoga
10 - 4pm
at the Hayling Island Donkey Sanctuary
Earlybird price of £55 if booked in April
£60 from May 1st
The cost includes 4 hours of yoga led by experienced FRYOG teacher Cate, a delicious vegetarian or vegan lunch prepared by the sanctuary volunteers, as well as an exclusive and personal welcome by Tracy and Paul, the owners of the sanctuary. A large percentage of your fee will be donated directly to the donkey sanctuary, which is a registered charity.
About the day:
We will be practicing yoga in a large, sunny and secluded paddock, with the company of some of the older and well-behaved donkeys.
10am - arrival and welcome
10.30 - A classic Hatha yoga session suitable for all levels of yogis except complete beginners
12.30 – A leisurely lunch of posh sandwiches, homemade cake and tea or coffee in the cafe, followed by the opportunity to meet some of the younger and more boisterous donkeys, browse the gift shop or simply relax in the June sunshine.
2pm - An afternoon of pranayama, guided visualisation, gentle yoga, mindful meditation, and a demonstration of Thai yoga massage.
4pm – Home time – Om Shanti
Please note: All of the yoga will be taking place outside so is weather-dependent. In the unfortunate (but hopefully unlikely) event that we get rained off, we will have to reschedule the yoga day – and we have provisionally booked 2nd July as back-up. We are confident it will be glorious weather on the 18th June though and that you'll need suncream and sunglasses. Please bring your own mat and a water bottle.
I lead a yoga retreat weekend every year in the UK. We escape to a beautiful location for a whole weekend filled with good food, beauty and massage treatments - and of course yoga! It's a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends, relax and spend time focusing on your yoga practice. There is usually wine involved too.
I occasionally organise single day retreats locally too.
