Next Retreat – 21nd – 23th February 2020
With the modern stresses of everyday life we get caught up in the rat race, disconnecting from ourselves as we run round doing too much, eating the wrong foods, drinking the wrong drinks and running on physical, emotional and spiritual “empty”. We have to stop and rejuvenate the body and mind before we get sick. Come and learn to live in the moment again, as we did when we were children.

Cratcliff is a 300 year old farmhouse surrounded by fields and woodland with the dramatic back drop of Cratcliff Tor rising up behind it. The underfloor central heating and two log burning stoves make it a warm haven to return to if you venture out for a walk into the surrounding countryside. Within a short walk of the house you can reach the top of Cratcliff Tor for a dramatic view of the surrounding countryside or visit the hermits cave carved into the rock below. Also in the vicinity are the remains of two ancient stone circles, the gray ladies and the nine ladies on Stanton Moor. For those sensitive to earth energies you will be able to sense the special qualities of this location.
Francesca completed her Yoga training at The Yoga Center, Madrid in 2006 and teaches public and private classes internationally. With her wealth of experience teaching yoga she has the ability to tailor the classes around all participants, making this retreat suitable for all levels of ability. She emphasizes that yoga is not a competition but a very personal practice and journey, honouring the body with its capabilities.
Ann qualified as a Physiotherapist in 1983 and has worked in health care since then, both in the National Health Service and privately, assisting people in their return to health and wellbeing. Ten years ago she did an additional training in The Bowen Technique. http://www.bowensense.co.uk/Home.aspx https://thebowentechnique.com/what-is-bowen/what-is-the-bowen-technique/
I have a keen interest in natural health as well as personal and spiritual development. In addition to making healthy lifestyle choices I recognize the importance of developing a peaceful mind, of becoming more aware of the subtle messages and energies of the body and of developing a deeper connection to our inner truth.
In addition to my individual therapy work I have been facilitating group meditation / mindfulness events, teaching various techniques and practices that I have found beneficial in my own personal journey towards a more peaceful, loving, connected, energized way of living.
