These morning yoga retreats are an opportunity for you to take time out from your busy lives and deepen your practice of yoga; a calming space for you to enliven your body, mind and spirit and find harmony.

“The practice of yoga is the commitment to become established in the state of freedom.” Patanjali 1:13 (Alistair Shearer translation)

 This year the experiential mornings will weave some of the yoga philosophy from Patanjali’s sutras; the Sanskrit word ‘sūtra’ means ‘thread’.  Together we will gently explore the asanas/postures, pranayama/breath and dhyana/meditation to settle the mind into stillness. All bodies, experience or ability are welcome.

Previously participants have said:

  • “Slowing down and going inside is always helpful for me as I am always so busy!”
  • “this is time for me  to focus on my body and to tune into its intelligence and feel my potential”

The morning will be followed by a nourishing and delicious vegetarian lunch at 1pm.

 Fees: Each workshop is £32 / £28 concessions (including lunch)  A non-returnable £10 deposit will confirm your place.  £20 discount available if booking all nine retreats.

Yoga at Imbolc: 2 – 6 February 2019

Residential Retreat with Jenny Beeken 

The Festival of Awakening is a time of new beginnings, hope, cleansing and healing. During this four day retreat you will explore through asana, pranayama and meditation how the connection of the energies within the landscape influence and can shift the life force within. The teaching will help you to recognise those inner promptings and bring to fruition your deepest aspirations, hopes and dreams.

  • Asana – the movement of energy through the chakras and how that shifts your whole consciousness
  • Mudra – how attitude shapes your whole self
  • Pranayama – noticing in which situations in life you restrain your breath and how you come back to the natural breath moving through your body
  • Meditation – focussing on the different ways of meditating to energise, calm and see things as they are – vipassana

Teacher: Jenny Beeken

Jenny originally studied BSc Physics at Exeter, followed by four years hospital work where much useful anatomy was absorbed. In 1979 she left school teaching to study Yoga in India with Shri BKS Iyengar; then taught yoga full time, developing a Teacher training school in 1992 – the Inner Yoga Trust.
Now her influence is from Vanda Scaravelli’s teaching through Diane Long and Sophy Hoare. Vanda was taught one to one by Iyengar together with Yehudi Menhuin.

For more information about the programme please contact Jenny Beeken: jenny@inneryoga.org.uk Vanda adapted Iyengar’s strong, demanding and precise approach to what the western body needs in terms of “Awakening the Spine”. Jenny focuses on this by enlivening the feet, working the legs, opening out the hips and shoulders to engage the inner spinal muscles and ligaments, so transforming our posture and habits of movement
