I am delighted to be returning to Wexford again in 2020 to teach at the Stella Maris Centre in the picturesque coastal village of Kilmore Quay, County Wexford. This is one of my favourite places in the world and I have been coming here to teach since 2010 and have built up some long lasting friendships and connections with yoga students from all over Ireland. My friend and colleague, Mary Duane is my wonderful organiser and she has been working hard to get me back to the South West coast of Ireland this year!

Mary will also help with travel info – it’s a fairly easy and pleasant drive down from Dublin and there is an excellent bus route with regular buses every half hour, taking around 2 hours door to door.

1st to 5th july 2020 – yoga & cultural event winchester, UK
Winchester cathedral city, hampshire, united kingdom

I am VERY excited to be showcasing my first retreat in my home town of Winchester, July 2020. This is where my yoga story began and where I grew up, so I am looking forward very much to welcoming you to the beautiful and historic city of Winchester, for 5 days of yoga and culture. 

This unique event will take place in various locations in and around Winchester, focusing on places with a unique local historical context, so not only will you be doing yoga daily, you will be taking classes and living the history of some of the city’s most iconic and atmospheric places. Winchester was once the capital of olde England and has a wealth of history and culture, well maintained throughout the city itself and in the surrounding areas. It is by far one of the most popular cities to visit in the UK and the yoga event will coincide in the summer, with the world famous summer Hat Fair, 3 day of street art, music and culture and in the winter with the Christmas German Market.


  • Daily extended yoga class from Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th July. We will be visiting different venues around the cathedral city, all with a unique asepct and historical context.
  • Included in the program (all optional but included in the price) is a guided tour around Winchester, welcome lunch at River Cottage Restaurant, a day trip with yoga in the walled victorian gardens and tour of Chawton House, home of Jane Austen, sunrise walk and practice, farewell dinner at the Ivy Restaurant
