Join me at the most beautiful locations in Cornwall and the Lake District as summer gently gives way to autumn. Each one is hand-picked to foster deep rest, an endless unfolding of gentle movement and soulful community. Peaceful venues and small groups create friendly intimacy and the chance to truly unwind. All offer the uplifting addition of optional wild swimming, whether in the private swimming lake of my Secret Garden retreat, the invigorating saltwater of Cornwall's Lamorna Cove or the expansive fresh water of Lake Ullswater. My retreats come to you with a huge dollop of loving kindness, heartfelt warmth and space to be you just as you are. Come see what all the fond fuss is about...

small groups, so there is no pressure, just time and space to reset with gentle connection and peaceful calm

If you don't find a date or place that suits you, be the first to know about new retreats as they become available by emailing me at julia@oceanlightyoga.co.uk

The Yoga is deliciously mellow, designed to bring you into a deeper sense of ease and appreciation of your body, no matter what niggles, aches or other limitations you may experience in day-to-day life. So much more than yoga, in truth, this way of learning how to move, breathe and be will stay with you for months and years to come. By slowing down and un-doing more than doing, you have the chance to experience a new kind of freedom, peace and joy that are rare in our otherwise full and often hectic lives. Come with an open mind and heart and I will meet you there. 

3 night retreat: 13th - 16th September FULLY BOOKED

Hayle, Cornwall close to Hayle train station and the A30

Come into a simpler way of being at this magical lakeside retreat. Awake with the birds for a refreshing dawn plunge in the private swimming lake, meander in the gardens, sip tea on the deck... A bubbling brook runs past the meditation tipi while the south-facing sun room houses our mindful yoga practices.

3 night retreat: 28th September - 1st October LAST SPACES AVAILABLE NOW

Lamorna Cove, near Penzance, Cornwall (trains to Exeter, Bristol and London within 10 minutes taxi ride; close to A30)

Gaze from the sunny conservatory at the garden's autumn leaves as the seasons mellow, or wander to the nearby cove along by the woodland stream. A delicious time for sea bathing after the summer sun has warmed the waters. A time to let go and slide quietly towards a cosier time of year.
