Forthcoming Events and Booking

You are born with potential, you were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams, You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t . You have wings, learn to use them and fly.

– Rumi


Yoga retreats are normally run twice a year in spring and autumn in English countryside. Retreats are open to all levels of practitioners, but some previous experience of dynamic vinyasa will be beneficial. Typically retreats are held in small group settings (10-12 participants) so booking early is essential.  


Typical 3 day retreat schedule: 


Day 1 – arrival in the evening in time for settling and dinner with one hour of restorative yoga session
Day 2 – there is typically full two-three hour dynamic vinyasa yoga session, morning meditation, afternoon group yoga session tailored to retreat topic and restorative yoga nidra in the evening
Day 3  –  similar to day 2 but without evening session   


Forthcoming yoga retreats: 

Inner Guidance Retreat Center, Suffolk (26-28 April 2019 – details below)  and  Mill Retreat Center, Normandy, France (5-8 September 2019 – details to follow).

I went to Vera’s classes for a number of years and also attended her retreats. She tailored the practice to the needs of the group, I found the practice really helped me to engage with my body and quieten my mind. I always felt that I was benefitting immensely from the classes and retreats and it helped me to  not just cope but also thrive in a stressful environment – both from a physical and mental perspective.

I have attended Vera’s retreats several times and she is an extraordinary teacher, who brings a unique passion and attentiveness to her students.  Her touch and inspiration remains with you for a long time.  She also has an infectious sense of humour and is oodles of fun.

A yoga retreat with Vera is just that – a treat. I loved the early morning sessions and the group was so nice. Vera really understands people and I felt great after just a weekend away.

I have been on four of Vera’s yoga retreats and also attended her lessons in the City. I have enjoyed both enormously. The retreats are in interesting places, with small groups which allows for Vera to keep a watchful eye on each person. The weekend practice is well-constructed ending the day with yoga nidra after which everyone goes to sleep! I am looking forward to the next retreat…..
