Please bring a yoga mat, water, blanket, pillow, scarf or tie, journal, pencil or pen, any other props appropriate for you, and lunch. If you have a drum, egg shaker, or any other small instrument please feel free to bring that too for the kirtan at the end. Let's make some noise!

The body cools down when holding poses for a longer period of time, please make sure to wear enough layers to stay warm.

Yoga, expert guidance, fruit, herbal teas, and water are included. Lunch is not included. Yoga is ideally practised on a (fairly) empty stomach, we are encouraging you to eat only light snacks such as fruit or a nutbar before the retreat. You can bring your own or venture into Kirkcaldy as there will be a longer lunch break and the location is very close to the center of town.

I have a limited amount of blocks, straps, and bolsters available on the day. If you need props and do not have your own, please contact me to arrange. This is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and is included.

This yoga day retreat is £65. 50% is non-refundable and refunds are only considered up to 10 days before the retreat. If you prefer payment through bank transfer (saves processing cost), please contact me as I aim to be as flexible as possible.

For yoga, we need to be in the present moment. During retreats, we set aside time and space to experience the beauty and healing that yoga has to offer on a deep level. I am looking forward to welcoming you on the retreat!
