2 - 5 November 2017
Our intention is to set the scene so that you can take time out of your usual routine to rest and rejuvenate in the peaceful setting of a beautiful ashram - a Bhakti devotional space that allows you to just BE for a while, where you will feel like you have been away for a week, not just the weekend!
This is a great opportunity for a DIGITAL DETOX!
Outside of the ashram feel free to enjoy the picturesque country evening sunsets, a walk to the top of Glastonbury Tor, sample the local food, explore the colourful local shops whilst you explore and expand your understandings about Yoga from the inside.
This long weekend is particularly special as you will have the unique experience of a number of teachers and facilitators across the weekend.
During yoga asana practice you will benefit from having the combined experience of two teaching styles and perspectives, Prue and Erin. By supporting each other and your practice through team teaching their classes and workshops, Prue and Erin will take you deeper into breathing, alignments, adjustments and understandings of yoga.
This is a rare experience to explore the wider scope of “Yoga”
