Naomi Hayama started practicing yoga at a very young age. Because her mother and father-in-law are both yoga teachers in Japan, Naomi was creating an early awareness of the practice that led to a deepening interest over the years. Naomi now lives in Bristol where she has been teaching yoga since 2004. She is the owner and the manager of Bristol Yoga Centre and the founder of Everyday Yoga. Naomi is specializing in Hatha, interweaving Vinyasa Flow, Restorative, Yin, and Nidra yoga.
Based in London, Clive Fogelman has a creative and open-minded approach to yoga and meditation, influenced by his therapeutic work and sporting background. He encourages people to cultivate intuition within their bodies, mindful that all individuals are different and continually evolving. His tailored yoga classes emphasize linking breath and movement to direct attention inward and become more aware of each moment and the unique nature of our own body. Drawing on the parallels between yoga and life, the mat becomes an opportunity for exploration and transformation.
Susie started practicing yoga in her late teens following an injury incurred through her dance training. The freedom and ease that she found while dancing was reawakened when she discovered yoga. She has studied and attended an eclectic array of workshops and trainings with internationally acclaimed instructors offering her the opportunity to deepen her studies in Hatha, Yin, Ashtanga, Yoga Nidra and meditation but due to her background in dance her style is deeply rooted in Vinyasa. This is reflected in her teaching which lends to the smooth choreography of her classes.
Malwina completed a 200h yoga teacher training in 2016, specializing in a Vinyasa practice. She then went on to become a certified mindfulness teacher. Malwina’s passion for wellness and meditation took her from the Business Development Executive role at Apple to co-founding her own corporate wellness company and becoming a full-time Yoga and Mindfulness teacher. Malwina emphasizes the mind-body connection in her classes and is particularly interested in the ways her students can incorporate mindfulness into everyday life.
Kate discovered Yoga and Meditation in her teens and has been a lifelong practitioner of both ever since. Kate also teaches a program of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction courses. Kate’s approach to Mindfulness teaching aims to be inspiring but light-hearted and humorous with an acceptance of people just where they are now, embracing the core principles of embodiment, open mindedness and compassion.
Jess Dezaux has been teaching yoga and meditation internationally for over ten years.

"A retreat to be connected with yourself again"
The retreat was great! It was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only the relaxation within the retreat, but also the self-development that I was able to experience with the help of the instructors.

"Really loved it - worth every cent!"
I enjoyed this retreat so much, there was always such a positive vibe and it even felt a bit like family!
Everyone really went out of their way to get you what you wanted (e.g. special-order desert by the phantastic cook, additional transfers into the city-center, or specially providing Coca-Cola because while I know it’s not healthy, I really love it) - and they did it with a genuine smile.
I was a bit hesitant at first to book this, because I thought it was a bit higher-priced than some other retreats I had looked at: But I think, that since so much was already included in the price (transfers, 1-hr-massage, day-spa ticket, etc.) that in the end, I paid less than for the others, where so many things would have led to additional costs.
And now that I’ve been there; even if it had been higher priced than other retreats, it would still have been worth it :-)
