Yoga & Writing Retreat 12-15 July

Kathryn Riding’s wonderfully restorative and accessible yoga classes will be offered twice daily, along with morning meditation, creative writing with Jane Cornes, mantra singing and time to relax and unwind in the sanctuary of GYMEA.


Each morning, Kathryn will guide you through morning meditation and a yoga class that is both dynamic and restorative. Kathryn’s classes are an invitation to journey within, to experience your inner spaciousness, your connection with the elements, your inner peace and joy.

“I’ve had many yoga teachers but, until Kathryn, none who moved me to tears through their elegance.” Perrie Croshaw, journalist.

After breakfast, Jane will facilitate a relaxed, supporting creative writing class suitable for all levels of ability. Jane’s primary focus – and joy – is helping others realise their creative potential. Whether you’re new to writing or an experienced writer looking for inspiration, Jane’s friendly, insightful approach will help open up your inner creative voice and build your confidence.

After a leisurely lunch, curl up with a good book or take a walk through the beautiful countryside at your doorstep – the retreat features clearly marked walking trails. The afternoon also brings another of Kathryn’s wonderfully restorative and accessible yoga classes, along with some simple mantra singing.

Food will be a big and equally delicious part of this nurturing retreat. Savour World Cuisine will provide wholesome, vibrant vegetarian meals and home-baked goodies from Friday evening to Monday morning.

Your evenings are free to relax, engage in friendships old and new and enjoy time-out for self. You are welcome to bring your favourite tipple to enjoy with dinner.
