Love Yoga Retreat

Just a wee note for you all that the Love Yoga Retreat at Newbold House in Forres went really well and we thank ALL participants for their willingness to be themselves and share and participate the ways they did. It was a pleasure to Rebecca and myself (and we are tired today) and we’ll offer another Retreat at that wonderful venue in 2017.

Retreat & Restore with Martin & Rebecca next weekend ?✨


Two places have just become available on our yoga retreat next weekend at Newbold House in Forres!

Get deeper into your yoga practice and yourself with beautiful yoga practices including postures, mantra, breathwork and meditation on this lovely retreat, at Newbold House, Forres. We will take the opportunity to reflect and gain clarity on aspects of ourselves and our lives that we hope to grow and those we prefer to release. The retreat will be a step out of normal life to focus on inner rest, reflection, rejuventation, and on deepening and integrating practices to support us on our return to ‘normal life’. We will hold a wider space of joy, peace and love as a framework for our explorations and practices.

There are residential and non-residential options, arriving on the Friday evening until the Sunday evening. Meals and teas are included. Full residential: £225; Non-residential: £175 – contact us to book – Booking essential!

Sunday is about intimacy, deepening our sacred relationships with ourselves and exploring what’s behind our relationships with others. We’d will explore what intimacy is and the weekend will close with a nourishing touch session.
