Visit Website

We invite you to join us to take some time to reclaim yourself in the magical Island of Sark.

The word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit meaning ‘to unite’, and during this retreat we will take time to breath, and arrive back into your body and mind.

Taking the time to reunite, we will explore the many tools of Yoga, including Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing practices), Dhyana (Meditation).

Our grounding, yet gently energising retreat, will be an open and safe space for all participants who wish to join us, including beginners.

There will be time to enjoy additional activities such as a chocolate making with Caragh’s Chocolates, or you may choose to take a gentle walk in the La Seigneurie Gardens, or a fascinating dark sky evening at the Sark Observatory.

Sark Island is a true gem, and we encourage you to explore or simply rest at your own pace. This is your retreat and everything that is suggested, including classes, is optional to your personal retreat experience.

Various treatments will be available at Stocks Hotel with the hugely talented Kristine Garlan-Hando (Chill-om Holistic), and assisting Katie in class, will be wonderful Hannah Colley (Yoga Sundays).
