A unique opportunity to attend a Yin Yoga Teacher Training, with myself, Olivia Clarke, at The Coach House Retreat, a stylish, private wellbeing haven, between Raglan and Monmouth, on the Welsh border. I will be teaching through the lens of Insight Yoga, which brings a profound depth and nuance to the Yin Yoga experience. This training will be the equivalent of Level 1 at www.sarahandtypowers.com I am an endorsed Insight Yoga Teacher and a long term student of Sarah Powers, one of the most influential and foundational teachers of Yin Yoga in the world today. Insight Yoga is a rich intersection of Buddhist Mindfulness, Yoga and Psychology. This course is suitable for yoga teachers, somatic therapists, psychotherapists, deep practitioners and lovers of Yin Yoga and Buddhist Mindfulness. You don’t need to be a yoga teacher to do this Level 1 training. I have known many deep practitioners who have never taught a yoga course in their life and have no desire to do so. You might be a change maker in the world, a healer, a therapist and wish to integrate mindfulness and embodied practice, as a way to self-regulate and live more deeply from the parasympathetic nervous system. The course will be trauma informed. Do reach out if you have any questions and I will send an outline of the course, to people who wish to sign up.


Yin / Insight Yoga and The Wisdom of Maitri.

Olivia loves to guide people into the depths of Winter. Wintering is an invitation to deepen, hibernate, rest as the Earth does, gather collectively and intimately around roaring log fires, as we winter together and enjoy the nourishing beauty of silence, deep yin and the wisdom of Maitri. Wisdom is a slow, gradual deepening, a blooming, a flourishing, as we come to know ourselves in more intimate and loving ways. Maitri is the practice of making friends with ourselves, unconditionally and wholeheartedly. You sit with yourself. You move closer, no matter what’s going on. You don’t try to get rid of anything. You recognise your humanity and the wide gamut of emotions you might be feeling. You learn to stay. Maitri strengthens us with stability and steadfastness. It also softens us. You are invited to rest back and relax deeply into the present moment, trusting that the present moment will take care of the future.

Venue:Wonderful Escapes, Monmouthshire, South Wales, UK – a stunning venue in the heart of the Black Mountains National Park with sauna, treatment rooms, wild swimming, roaring log fires and 16 beautiful bedrooms. The Great Barn, at the heart of this venue, is where we gather collectively, backed by the quiet presence of Skirrid Mountain. Those who love mountains, wild places and warm hearths will enjoy the spirit of this place. Please see photos on my website: www.oliviahealingyoga.co.uk

You will be well supported.
