Yoga and Shiatsu Retreats – dates to be announced


Come and join Rosalind and Elaine for a nourishing weekend of Yoga and Shiatsu at Monkton Wyld Court set in the rolling hills of Dorset within walking distance to the stunning Jurassic coast.

This will be achieved through the practise of Hatha yoga sequences, relaxation and meditation, plus a personalised Shiatsu treatment to restore balance and harmony.
