Retreats and workshops

Spring mini retreat on 25 April 2020 in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire.

A one day yoga retreat in beautiful Henley on Thames.  Two long yoga classes, a delicious vegetarian lunch, teas, homemade cakes and a walk in beautiful countryside. All just an hour from London.

My one day retreats are very friendly and relaxed, and all are welcome, so long as you have practised some yoga (just a couple of classes is fine) or other movement practice (such as pilates/dance etc) before. Enjoy a fun, relaxing day out in beautiful surroundings with delicious food and friendly like-minded people.

This retreat will start with a dynamic ‘slow flow’ yoga and Qigong practice, before a delicious lunch (and healthy yummy cake!) from an award winning local caterer and a walk around the historical town centre. The day will end with a yin, restorative and yoga nidra practice, leaving you feeling refreshed and energised for the summer ahead! £74 pp or just £58 if booked as a package with my September retreat in Hambleden (Sunday 27 September). Email carolineshawyoga@gmail.com to book.

Comments from last year…“Thank you Caroline, I enjoyed the day so much I didn’t want to go home!”
