We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
RETREATS IN 2012
One of many comments on previous retreats -
"A simply heart warming experience" - Caroline Sylger-Jones, Body and soul retreats, Footprint Guides
"We spent a wonderful 6 days focusing on yoga with individual attention as required but also allowing time to reflect on our lives and place in the world. The Ayurvedic food was surprisingly tasty and the treatments that Jane carried out eased away tension and also helped my poor body as it wasn't quite used to so much yoga! The situation of Les Passeroses allows you to do as much or as little as you want and the boys certainly made me feel very welcome." - Bridget
"I wanted to write a short note to express what a wonderful experience it was attending your ayurvedic retreat which took place in September at Les Passeroses in France. Les Passeroses is an ideal location to unwind and let go of the stresses of everyday life and to find some peace and stillness. I was a little apprehensive about the fact that it would be ayurvedic food and what this might involve, but the culinary skills of Adrian and Alex shone through and the food was delicious, nourishing and cleansing and any fears I had fell away very quickly and I found myself looking forward to what might be on the menu each day.
As you know I have attended yoga retreats that you have run in the past and I have always enjoyed your style of teaching and your ability to share your yoga background and knowledge, but I have to say that this particular retreat was exactly what I needed. The restorative nature of the yoga was deeply relaxing and I felt a renewed sense of wellbeing. I also experienced some real shifts of energy and a change of perspective as a result of the experience.
Thank you Jane for sharing your unique style and energy with us. Your passion for yoga and its benefits comes through so clearly during your teaching. I very much look forward to attending another retreat in the future."
"I love taking a break to get away and do some yoga. When faced with a choice between a yoga holiday and yoga retreat I will usually opt for the former thinking that a yoga holiday can include a bit of indulgence while a retreat can sometimes be a bit of a deprivation. Jane's Ayurvedic retreat however certainly doesn't fit that category. The food was absolutely amazing and felt like a real treat. Not only did it look, smell and taste delicious it provided a fabulous opportunity to learn about the doshas and how different food types work for the different constitutions. The Ayurvedic massage is just the best ever and the dhara managed to still my chattering mind. One week later I left feeling completely transformed with my renewed energy."
