Yoga Retreat

it was great! You were such a good teacher….so caring and attentive to individual needs. Ann

Thank you for giving me the chance to take part in something I had always wanted to do..I felt the yoga retreat was just the right balance of yoga and free time and loved the evening sessions just before bed. Thought the food was very good too, and of course the lovely rooms…Sue M

I really enjoyed the yoga retreat and appreciate all the effort you put in to make it work so well. I shall look forward to the next one! Jane B

For me the yoga break was just perfect, amazing place, superb company, gorgeous food and great yoga. Hannah

I really enjoyed the Yoga Retreat . It was so nice to meet everyone and have such a relaxing time.
Your flexible and warm approach enabled me to get the best out of each session.
The venue was perfect. I particularly liked how the Yoga studio was surrounded by glass,giving views of the open countryside with the occasional green woodpecker and stoat.
The venue seemed very spiritual which again was perfect for a calming retreat. – Angela F

I thought the yoga sessions were perfect. I would love to do another retreat next year. Linda M.

‘I joined Karen’s beginner yoga class to support my running training. The classes were friendly and at the perfect pace. Karen has a great way of explaining and encouraging, making you feel relaxed but also building your confidence and ability. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.’ Phil C

Thanks Karen yes I must say I loved the yoga I will definitely be doing more classes. The sessions was well balanced and I learnt so much and felt really good after every class so much so I was doing what I learnt at home, i will be continuing to do classes as often as I can,thank you Karen for your time,knowledge, explanation and expertise on every pose i fully recommend your yoga classes.  Theresa N

Thanks so much for taking the trouble to set up this. It’s so good to be able to do this at home. The unexpected joy is that we can see each other & exchange greetings. It was the highlight of the day. – Ros


Thanks so much for doing this for us, I don’t think I would be doing yoga without it, and it makes such a difference. X – Susan


It’s working great Karen. Feel I had a really good practice and nice to feel part of a group rather than just following a random video.
Thank you! – Sue M
Well done, Karen.
Brilliant yoga session.
It was easy to set up Zoom on my iPad and great to be able to see and chat to all the class too! Cheers – Keith H

“Karen has a remarkable gift of making everyone feel welcome at yoga sessions whether you are new to yoga or you have been practicing for years. Every session is different and Karen is a patient teacher.   I have learned yoga with several excellent yoga teachers. Karen is up there as one of the best…and she makes sure the sessions are enjoyable and uplifting”. Mike L

“I enjoy coming to yoga because every session is different, it definitely makes me feel more relaxed and the stretching helps relieve and prevent minor aches and pains and improves flexibility. I do miss yoga if I haven’t been able to go for a few weeks. It’s great to have such enjoyable classes locally and both venues are different but work well. It’s also an interest I share with my daughter.” Jane B

“…and just want to say how much I enjoy your yoga sessions, I find them so beneficial in many ways”. – Jackie R

“Karen’s classes are so welcoming and are suitable to any level. I love the fact I get worked hard but don’t even know it at the time. You teach us correct posture, breathing and proper terms and names of all the moves, everyone’s so friendly and I love the blanket and eye pillow for svasana at the end”. – Karen M

“I used to attend yoga classes many years ago and was dubious about returning after such a long gap, but Karen is so good at tailoring the exercises to the needs of the class and before you know it you are accomplishing more than you thought possible.    We also have a laugh, which is good for anyone. I look forward to my weekly sessions”.  – Pauline I

“I have been practising ‘gentle yoga’ with Karen for the past 2 years. I find it’s beneficial to my wellbeing, aiding mobility and giving me an appreciation of my breathing and ‘staying in the moment’.    For that lesson, all life’s business slips away and I come away feeling refreshed and restored.  I had been to other teachers but find that Karen has an amazing ability to connect with everyone in her class and knows all of our limitations enabling us to reach our potential no matter what our ages”   – Linda D 

“I always enjoy and can recommend the manageable pace, clear guidance and stunning location of Karen’s excellent, friendly, yoga classes at ‘The View’….I always feel refreshed and invigorated after her classes”.  – Keith H

“I would like to thank you for kick-starting me into my asana practice again, it was just what I needed. You are a very good and caring Yoga teacher and have a lovely rapport with your students. I liked the way you subtly altered the classes each week so there was continuity, but just slightly different to expand the students’ learning and keep the interest. Hari Om”
– Carol S (Sannyasi Mahamani )

“I am so glad that I recently discovered Karen’s ‘Gentle Yoga’ class.  It is just right for me.  I like the civilised start time of 9.30 am and the lovely setting, overlooking the lake, and Karen is always very welcoming and an inspiring teacher.  I find the programme very ‘doable’ for someone who stopped practising yoga several years ago and has been getting more and more stiff as a result!  I like the way Karen gently encourages us to experience the effect of each pose on our body, rather than get too distracted by how well we are performing!” – Laura H

“Karen’s yoga class is friendly and fun. She makes it fun and takes into account everyone’s level of fitness and suggests ways in which to move so you get the maximum benefit from the posture without over straining muscles, shoulders and back.   We all love it”. – Diane W

“I like coming to Karen’s yoga class because it’s a good way to start the week in a calming atmosphere with a great view of the lake.  Karen is a very good yoga teacher who takes the time to show you and to give you alternative yoga positions to suit your strengths.    Also if you can’t make your usual  class day you can always go to one of her other classes, so you never miss out. I would highly recommend you join one of Karen’s yoga classes”. – Marilyn

“I like coming to yoga as I always feel better after doing the session.
I certainly have missed the yoga during the last few weeks…..I also like the way you talk us through the exercises, as I always forget the order! You are an excellent
tutor” Astrid P

“…Looking forward to the start of another year of Yoga classes. I always feel so welcome at your classes, with a group of like minded people, lovely surroundings and the knowledge that you will always find a solution to any problems with poses I may have along the way”. – Sue M

“I have recently joined Karen’s Yoga class and am enjoying the varied classes. Karen is very welcoming and the View is a lovely place to practice yoga”. – Sarah B
