A truly wonderful weekend spent at Potash Barns with Julie and a great group of like minded people! The location is beautiful, the host is very helpful and produces absolutely gorgeous food! As for the yoga itself, Julie blends a mix of different yoga styles and explains each move extremely well. Julie is passionate about yoga, and is lots of fun too. Can't recommend it highly enough!
jI've just returned from a week in Spain with Julie at Centro Punto de Luz and loved it! The yoga sessions were very well planned and interestering, as I was used to another teacher and others methods. I did things I've never done before. Julie is very easy-going and funny, which makes the atmostphere so pleasant and relaxed. The food in the centre is amazing, it was my 3rd time there and one of the reasons I return. The owners are very welcoming and have generous heart, like Julie.
I've just returned from my second retreat with Julie at Centro Punto de Luz. The centre is in an amazing location. When hot it's great to sit by the pool. When cooler, there are walks with stunning views. The food is creative and nutritious, and the accommodation is comfortable. But best of all, Julie ensures that the yoga sessions are planned (and re-planned as necessary) to suit the group. There is a theme to the week, and to each session, and each session builds on the previous ones. Everything is done with care, attention and a sense of fun and enjoyment. I've already booked my next retreat. Well done Julie, and thank you!!
Re: Spring Rising Easter yoga week in Spain.
Dear Julie, I have spent the last two days spring cleaning. I came home feeling really relaxed yet at the same time full of energy, so have accomplished tasks that have been crying out to me for months, yet without getting stressed about them. All this I put down to our magical week in Spain!
I really enjoyed our week, despite not being as accomplished as everyone else, and I did appreciate your making it possible for me to join in with most of it. The food and the hospitality provided by Richard and Betty would be very hard to beat
Having spent a wonderful weekend of yoga at Tilton House in the beautiful Sussex countryside I am still reaping the benefits of wholesome, nutritious meals, lovely walks on the downs, good company and yoga in the yiurt. The woodburning stove kept the wind and rain at bay on Friday evening and I wondered how I would manage doing two sessions of yoga a day for the next two days. However, the whole experience was so well paced and Julie was so responsive to the energy and needs of the group, that the sessions just built up effortlessly. Julie is an extraordinarily gifted teacher, whose presence, natural warmth and humour serve to communicate her deep knowledge of yoga. Her awareness of physiology enables her to create flow and movement into more challenging postures safely. However, this is not yoga as exercise - Julie brings wisdom and spiritual awareness to the work so that the whole is far gretaer than the sum of its parts. A very special weekend. Thank you, julie.

Affordable luxury - the luxury of time that is - to be guided through an interesting and informative programme of yoga twice a day (optional!) for a whole week. My idea of heaven. Julie's style of teaching is warm and relaxing and I am sure she adapted her well planned schedule to suit individuals on the retreat as she got to know their needs. Julie's retreats are Inspirational, fun, relaxing, energising, healthy and.... highly recommended.
The clue is in the title! Joyful Yoga really is what is says. I came home feeling relaxed and grounded, walking taller and happy to look the world in the eye. Julie offers her love and depth of knowledge of yoga with a warm heart and generous spirit. The hot, sunny days were just an added extra.
Go. Learn. Love.
Having returned from yet another Yoga retreat with Julie, I would highly recommend her classes. As always, Julie carefully planned her classes to cater for a range of abilities and provided just the right mix of the spiritual and the practical. I returned completely rejuvenated.
I recently returned from a week in Spain with Julie. The yoga sessions were well prepared and each pose (often including options to cater for a range of bodies) was clearly explained. I find Julie's presence calm, kind inspiring, as well as quietly humorous. The retreat centre was brilliant. I hope to do many more of Julie's classes and retreats.
Thank you so much for a lovely weekend at Kilnhanger. As someone who doesn't practice yoga regularly I was a little nervous but Julie's teaching was so thoughtful and supportive that I was totally comfortable throughout. I left feeling rejuvenated and am planning to take up regular yoga practice. Thank you Julie, hope we meet again. Marilyn x
