Weekend Yoga Retreat with Claire Saunders and Emma Spencer-Goodier SOLD OUT


Emma and Claire are delighted to be offering The Sukha Sessions – a weekend to explore the blissful nature of the Self, to connect with your wild soul through the practices of yoga, stories and sweetness whilst nestled in this lovely historic house. Fire pits, wild ancient landscapes, botanical delights, yurts, saunas and clean wide skies and the sea airs.  This will be a fairly yoga intense weekend, so will suit regular practitioners with a minimum of 6 months consistent yoga practice, although we will make time for a walk on Saturday afternoon in the footsteps of the Bloomsbury ghosts who walked, reflected and escaped to these hills to feed their muse. Alternatively you could curl up in the library and enjoy some relaxing peace.

The Yoga: Claire teaches Soulful Vinyasa Yoga which is a transformational fusion of form and flow designed to light you up and soothe your soul. Her teaching is a call to embody the principles of yoga, empowering you to feel more balanced, energised and grounded. Emma teaches an intuitive hatha yoga flow that offers clarity, suggests precision, offers strength whilst suggesting softness. Her teaching has become a loving yogic enquiry into the essence of you through a powerful cocktail of asana, mindfulness and breath, this practice has grown from and is inspired by the traditions of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Sivananda. Both teachers complement each other in the way they offer flowing sequences that blend with steady poses, always rooted in clear alignment and integrating patterns of movement with an underlying theme drawn from yoga philosophy and connected back into real life.


Claire Saunders came to yoga in 1999 to combat office stress, and little did she know she was embarking on the journey of a lifetime.  Since her first teacher training in 2005 with Simon Low, she has been more and more entranced with the ability of yoga to enhance all parts of her life, and studied deeply in the traditions of Anusara and more recently, Rasa yoga, undertaking many further trainings. Since she was a child, she has been drawn to the worlds of myth and legend, and now can really indulge her passion for storytelling and philosophy by weaving the tales of the gods and goddesses through class to create real transformation on the mat. Claire has her RYT500 with YA (US)

Emma Spencer-Goodier has taught yoga on the Isle of Wight, the south coast and overseas for nearly twenty years. She is a keeper of words and a lover of stories, philosophy and poetry. She is an adventurous soul, a lover of wild spaces, a mother, a teacher of teachers and her quest is that of the pure spirit, her guides are integrity and joy. She is a senior teacher with the Yoga Alliance Professionals UK.

Both these women value the supportive energy that working together can bring – the magic that occurs when curious, respectful souls come together as Kula or Sangha. Join their early summer explorations in the practices of fire and nectar as we become a little clearer in our vision, more steady in our awareness and ever more familiar with the soul.
