Yoga & Meditation

- What a fantastic retreat! As an experienced yogi, I thought the quality of the yoga classes was very high, the yoga teacher (Fiona Macleod) had so much knowledge and understanding of the practice that really came through in such a clear but gentle, understanding and loving way that i have know doubt that everyone would enjoy and benefit from her classes, whether a beginner or more advanced student.  - Alex UK

Yoga for women with Fiona

When we move our bodies with concious awareness, in yoga, we are able to tap into a deep resource of presence and energy. When we flow with each breath we can embody each moment, release stress and tension and over time develop inner strength and balance. This can give us a way of understanding ourselves, our family, our friends, our community and our planet.

Guided Meditation

Meditation is something that will develop over time when the mind has been calmed, or focussed with practice of dharana (concentration). It is only through dharana that dhyana (meditation) will come. The traditional purpose of yogasana is to enable the body to sit in meditation. It is good for us as beginners to use a particular technique to support us in our practice.

The practice of yoga nidra, (yoga sleep), is designed to take us into  the space of concious awareness and pure presence. It adapts to the needs of the practicioner, relaxation and deep rest, healing, insight, vitality and creativity.
