“The workshop was just the reset I needed after a break from regular classes. The longer session allowed you time to refine each posture and Gary differentiated the poses to suit a range of abilities. I admit I was worried about the last part of the session, the breathing exercises or pranayamas, but Gary broke it down into manageable bite-sized chunks. I left feeling taller, lighter and re-energised. Would definitely recommend!” – Lucy C, June 2023
“Many thanks for the workshop last Saturday, I found it really useful, mainly because I am relying mostly on my morning routine at home. I found the last hour the most challenging; I don’t think I have ever sat still on the floor for that long and I do find it difficult to concentrate during the breathing exercises, but I guess that is the benefit of practicing them!” – Tom, Nov 2019
“Saturday’s workshop was great – like the classes- friendly, and supportive with clear instruction. After all the back stretching, shoulder opening etc. etc., the headstand moment came – everyone seemed to be having fun trying, but my shoulders and neck are often quite tight and I thought I probably wouldn’t be able to get even half way there. I looked down the line at my daughter-in-law – ‘You need to do this’ she said – TWICE!. And then I did! Amazing. I’m absolutely delighted!”
“I just wanted to thank you for this afternoon (yoga workshop). What a wonderful yoga session. I hadn’t had the best week and almost cancelled this morning. But I am so glad I pushed myself to come. I loved all of it; extended on a few positions I haven’t quite managed before.
“I loved the meditation session and in particular your talk on contentedness v happiness. Truly inspirational and peace giving. I will be back.” Jo L, June 2016
“Thanks very much Gary, Emily and I were very pleased that we attended (November 28 workshop). It was excellent having more time to focus on the postures and to learn more about technique. In particular, it was beneficial to have more time to breathe into and relax into the postures. In addition, having a whole hour at the end to focus on breathing and meditation was a real joy.”- Rachel Ferris,” November 2015
“I’ve never experienced anything quite like Gary’s yoga and meditation workshops. It is for me a very rare opportunity to spend three hours completely switched off from the world. It’s difficult to describe the sense of total and absolute relaxation that I always reach by the end of the sessions. Any worries I may have about work, family or finances all seem to fade away. I can’t recommend the workshops enough.” – Lee D, November 2012
NOTE: Venue offers free car parking.
General advice: Wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise; bring warm top or blanket to keep warm during meditation section of class; ideally, do not eat meals before session – allow 4 hours after large meal, and about 2 hours after light meal.
