One retreat I go to regularly is Kirsten Agar Wards retreat at The Meditation Centre Flintergill, Dent, in Cumbria. Kirsten is a senior level 3 Iyengar yoga teacher. Teaching since the 1990s, Kirsten is hugely experienced, a joy to be taught by and to learn from.
I love Dent, cobbled streets, buildings dating from the 12th century, so much history there. It has a small population and is a 4 mile walk or cycle from the station if you are not a driver. This is a wonderful walk down narrow lanes through rolling farmland, unwinding, for lots of yoga!
The setting, for me, is ideal for becoming immersed in yoga practice.
This is something to think about when you choose a retreat.
- Is the retreat set somewhere you want be
- With a teacher you want to learn from?
