This is set to a gentle yoga level. We wouldn’t describe it as beginners or advanced because yoga means more than the physical. However, it’s a good level for beginners to join even if you’ve never done yoga before. Those who are more experienced are more than welcome to our classes and retreats and often do so due to the mindfulness-based approach to yoga and the emphasis on emotional release as part of the yogic process, in support of their more physical-based yoga.

If you regularly experience anxiety or have had an acute stage turn chronic or excessive and need some much needed time out, but also learning and practicing the tools and techniques to gain your life back through then you will find it on this much-needed sanctuary.

Phil Beale is a Master Teacher offering treatments on this retreat. Phil spent the first part of his career in engineering and IT before becoming a corporate sales manager working for one of the larger Japanese computer companies. It was while working there that he first visited Japan and encountered the uniquely spiritual way of life and business as it is conducted there. During this time Phil also had his first experience of spiritual healing when he was called upon to assist a loved one who was in extreme pain and distress. Knowing nothing more at that point than hearsay, he was able to call upon his guides to assist in bringing relief to the person who was suffering, an event which set him upon a path of discovery and brought him to where he is today.
