Retreat guests experiences and testimonials.
I came to the retreat in desperation after exhaustion from work led me to reassess my life. Also suffering with self critical thoughts I had been convinced that yoga & meditation were my last hope. It is for that reason I wanted to venture into the “true” world of yoga, to reap all the benefits, as opposed to an exercise class at a gym.
I contacted Jane who seemed very understanding and accommodating of my situation. Expressing my “lost” feeling, having exhausted all other therapy avenues, she assured me this would benefit me in numerous ways. Her comforting words and kindness, & the fact that it would just be myself and Jane, reassured any doubts that I had, and final nerves en route disappeared when I saw Jane’s welcoming face.
My room was lovely, very cosy and I had everything that I needed. When asked about dietary requirements, I expressed my wanting to embrace the healthy menu. Jane went to a lot of effort to make fresh homemade healthy meals everyday, albeit some things were out of my “comfort zone” (my fault I am very fussy!)
The overall experience has been very interesting and exciting. I am glad I opted for the bespoke yoga as I could not imagine sharing Jane’s time. There was a lot to digest and long periods of focus, but the relaxing environment aided this. For me the best part was the physical practices which left me feeling somewhat lighter/ clearer in my mind and confident.
I have a lot to take away with me, not only the physical yoga, but many other tools, various meditation practices and mantras, to assist me going forward with the everyday challenges of life. I guess I will not know to what extent this has helped me with my initial reason for coming and my own personal journey, until I incorporate it into my daily routine, but it has certainly given me a great insight into the real world of yoga. I leave with a body for of light and a spring in my step☺ Thank you x Deborah

“I booked my retreat because I was looking for something which would enable me to have some ” me time” away from the stresses and demands of everyour day life.
Hilary, March 2018
“I was offered a custom-designed programme, one-to-one, over four incredible days, with as much, or as little, space as I needed, but with loving guidance through some structured workshop activity with plenty of reflection, through chanting and meditation, and through regular satsang, all in the tradition of Yasodhara Yoga.
In peaceful surroundings in beautiful North Norfolk, Jane helped me put myself back together, giving me vision and hope for the future, and the tools and practice – spiritual, mental, emotional – to take away with me to help meet the inevitable challenges along the way.
It is a gift to be given space, yet held; to be heard, sometimes without even speaking; to be encouraged, yet not indulged; to be offered peace, yet stimulation. All these things have been given freely, with loving kindness, and in absolute safety.
Oh – and the food? Sublime! Home cooked, organic, delicious and abundant!
Jane will nurture your entire being with love and compassion (and a fabulous menu!), from wherever you are to wherever you want to be”.
In love and gratitude

ONE-TO-ONE PERSONAL RETREAT June 18
From the moment I had the pleasure of stepping into Jane’s home for my long awaited mini retreat, feelings of ease and peace washed over me. These feelings stayed with me throughout, in the warmth of Jane’s wonderful hospitality and wise spiritual guidance. An amazing space surrounded by nature to get away from noise and the pressures of a busy life – to stand back, observe and reflect in a truly supportive environment.
I have slept, relaxed in the garden, read, listened to the birds singing, enjoyed yoga and meditations and the most wonderful fresh, seasonal food in abundance. Add to that the best week’s weather this year, I return to my own home, rested, relaxed and refreshed – and a date in my diary to return!
ONE-TO-ONE PERSONAL RETREAT MAY 2018
I booked a three day one-to-one retreat with Jane on the recommendation of a friend. i had been diagnosed with acute fatigue and felt I had lost my direction.
Jane’s home and studio are set in a beautiful part of Norfolk. One feels safe, sustained and cared for. My room was comfortable and I was able to have time to myself as and when I needed it.
Jane is a keen cook and I was able to regain my lost appetite through the fascinating vegetarian dishes she lovingly prepared.
Jane designed a workshop which I experienced over the three days. It was a gentle, focused process which was brilliantly paced. I was encouraged, through simple but meaningful yoga practices to find my way, with the help of Jane’s soft questioning, towards surprising realisations.
I am not a yoga practitioner myself but I want to emphasise that this retreat does not require one to be so. It is passionately delivered with all the skill learned through many years of study but it has no hard edges – it washes over you like rain and leaves you feeling profoundly centred.
Thank you Jane for taking care of me, sharing your knowledge and sending me home with sweet smelling blossoms in every sense.
Retreat weekend, November 10-12th 17.
“Beautiful setting in North Norfolk Countryside, very close to Blicking Hall and lovely for walks.
Jane is happy to share her comfortable home with guests and offers vegan food, She will also cater for special diets.
The accommodation is in double and twin rooms, and the luxury bathroom is shared.
During my retreat I experienced the relaxing and reflective teachings of Yasodhara Yoga, offered by Jane with care and expertise. I felt I was in safe hands and returned from my weekend with new insights to take me forward.
Refreshment and renewal can always happen if I take myself out of my ‘normal’ routine”. Elizabeth Taylor
