Ammerdown is a purpose built retreat centre within a 30 minute drive of Bath. It offers a beautiful and peaceful meeting place conducive to refreshment of mind, body and spirit. Situated within beautiful and tranquil surroundings, the centre offers excellent en-suite facilities and superb home-cooked food, as well as large function rooms in which we can practice yoga.
The retreat will be led by two experienced teachers and will include eight led sessions covering asana, pranayama, philosophy, chanting and restorative/relaxation practices. There will also be time for walking, relaxing, quiet contemplation and we hope to have a massage therapist available for treatments.
Arrivals from 4.30pm on Friday 16th November. First session 5.30pm. Departures after lunch on Sunday 18th November.
Simona's professional background is in Psychology and she has also studied Classical ballet. Subsequent studies in Dance Movement Therapy increased her awareness of how inextricably the mind, body and inner spirit are linked. She initially trained as a Sivananda Yoga teacher in 1998, however her love of yoga drew her to other styles including Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vinyasa Flow. Over the last few years she has had the privilege of studying with Bridget Woods-Kramer and John Friend as an Anusara teacher and now teaches Anusara Inspired Flow Yoga at Yoga Bodhi. Simona's classes are both fun and challenging and encourage playful exploration of both the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga. Simona emphasises in her teaching that although we may practice yoga in a group, the practice of yoga in itself is a very unique journey.
