Rachel has been running Iyengar Yoga retreats for many years. The yoga holidays are life enhancing and often help people to enjoy greater clarity of thought, helping them to make decisions or life choices, they feel better physically and also meet and conquer physical challenges in a calm and measured way which also builds their self-confidence and ability to recognise their strengths and possibilities.  For those experienced in yoga whether as a student or teacher, Rachel’s courses help to progress their practice and understanding of Iyengar Yoga giving them new insights. Many guests return year after year, making Rachel’s holidays a friendly and special environment for new guests to enjoy. All abilities and levels of experience are welcome including beginners on the “all levels” courses. You are advised to attend classes first at home so as to get the most out of your yoga holiday – ask Rachel to advise you on how to find a teacher. Intermediate/Advanced yoga students, teachers and trainees are also very welcome, especially on the the Intermediate Level courses in Portugal and Italy.
