WEEKEND RETREAT AT TRIGONOS

Yoga and sound retreat with Jo & Ged

Join us for a weekend of Yoga practice with great food, like minded company and surrounded by nature, open spaces, lakes and mountains.

The retreat will focus on yoga, meditation and relaxation practices using sound to deepen and enrich your experience. With specially written pieces performed live, to support both dynamic and meditative work helping you to find strength and flexibility in mind and body.

“I found Jo & Ged’s yoga retreat to be a really unusual & unique sensory experience.

“Floor to ceiling windows looking out to the autumn colours, under floor heating, delicious, healthy meals – all created such a cosy, nurturing environment that I felt completely immersed & able to relax into the experience.

“Jo & Ged are the warmest of hosts & consummate professionals, facilitating sessions in a seemingly effortless way. Ged’s sensitive soundscapes complemented Jo’s soothing delivery perfectly & I became attuned to different quietnesses in a way I’d never experienced before: distant wind in the trees, the gentle hum of the heating, contented tummies rumbling…

“Jo mixes up the yoga in a delightful way – from slower held poses to dynamic routines via tapping & shaking the body, through to freeform dance then finally guided meditation at the end of the day. Ged accompanies all this, mainly ‘barely there’ just hinting at a background heartbeat or delicately providing the rhythm to the more fluid routines, at other times evoking (for me) floating in outer space, dancing on a train, bustling around in an african market place, underwater in a tropical sea… & then sometimes just pure silence.

“After many years of erratically attending various yoga classes, this was my first retreat & I loved the slower pace this allowed. I lost track of time & aside from feeling longer & leaner afterwards, felt like my heart rate had slowed down too & that I’d stood back & regained some peaceful perspective again. I left with my hands & feet tingling, a Readybrek glow & a desire to exercise, eat & live in a more wholesome way.

“Hooray for Jo & Ged!”

“I have been fortunate to join Jo & Ged in the beautiful setting of Trigonos on more than one occasion. It is truly a wonderful, relaxing space to practice and reflect. I have to say that Jo & Ged make the experience extra special by sharing their time, skills and talent so generously.”

ENQUIRE OR BOOK YOUR PLACE

“I have attended two of Jo and Ged’s retreat holidays. The first was a weekend at Trigonos in beautiful Snowdonia.A stunning location in an old house dominated by a spectacular view of Snowden.The accommodation and particularly the food were first class. The classes were taken by Jo , accompanied by Ged on a variety of bewildering percussion instruments……… FANTASTIC!!!

“If you haven’t previously attended Jo’s classes I can tell you that she is an amazing teacher. Her classes are beautifully constructed and her gift of getting you into just the right pose with seemingly little effort(most of the time!) illustrates just how good she is. You come out feeling very pleased with yourself!! All down to Jo. In June this year I attended the first week long retreat at Les Passeroses- Bordeaux.

“Again, a beautiful old house in a stunning setting.We had a terrific variety of classes accompanied by the wonderful Ged. Some were energetic and dynamic, some relaxing. A great week. I’ve just booked again for Trigonos in February. No further recommendation needed!”
