the last yoga retreat

with Emma and Gemma below!

I’ve not done yoga for a while and I’ve missed it so the retreat felt like a good way to get back into things. I think price would have been the only reason I might not have booked, but actually, it was very reasonable for how much was covered.

On the day I remembered how much I love yoga and how good I feel afterwards! Also, as well as being delicious, the lunch was really interesting. I’m keen to learn more about better ways I can eat and how as a family we can nourish ourselves better.

The thing I liked most about the day was the sound bath. It was super tingly!

The benefits of doing a retreat with Emma and Gemma is lots of time for relaxation which feels quite indulgent, a chance to focus on yourself and a reminder for how important self care is.

I would definitely recommend this retreat day. I think it was a great reset button for me and, as above, a reminder to take the time to look after myself. I had a lovely day and felt so relaxed afterwards! Thank you!

I haven’t done much yoga but I had enjoyed Emma’s mum and baby yoga classes and wanted to try and do more. I had also never had a sound bath or tried yoga nidra and have been interested for sometime in learning more about paleo food. I hoped I would feel less anxious, stressed and tired.

On the day I discovered yoga nidra, sound baths, paleo food is gorgeous and that we only mainly breathe through one nostril at a time! I loved yoga nidra the most!

Three benefits of doing the retreat day would be meeting nice people, learning and experiencing new things, and time out for myself.

I would recommend this retreat day because it is a fun, friendly, supportive atmosphere and prior yoga experience is not necessary.

I have learnt that I struggle to breathe through my nose and routinely mouth breathe. The breathing exercises have been really helpful. I feel like I’m mainly breathing through my nose now, thank you!

Thanks for making us all feel so welcome, I really enjoyed the day! X

Thanks for the yoga retreat day, I really enjoyed it! I booked on it as I was interested in the sound bath and I thought it would be a lovely relaxing day.

I discovered that I enjoyed yoga much more than I thought and I really enjoyed paleo food, it was fab!

The benefits of the retreat are that it gives you a chance to relax and rebalance, learn more about yoga and meditation, and learn more about great food.

I would recommend coming on a retreat day as it’s a great chance to relax, stretch and spend a day focussing on yourself. Everyone should do this!

I so enjoyed the day and felt amazing the days following. I felt the way you put the class together and the way you delivered each section was so professional and done so well. I’m so pleased I was fortunate to enjoy this fantastic day. Thank you!
