Yoga Alliance RYT 500 (Ashtanga Yoga)
Phillipa is an established yoga teacher, she was first introduced to Iyengar yoga over twenty years ago by senior teacher Elizabeth Connolly. She was lucky enough to become a regular student of John and Lucy Scott in 1998, it was then that yoga became her life and took her to spend the winters from 2002 to 2006 teaching, travelling, and studying in India, where she had the chance to visit Mysore and study with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Her teaching style is based around her own experience of yoga, teaching a steady, flowing, progressive practice with an awareness on the breath linking the poses.
Phillipa was able to accommodate everyone's yoga level and progressed slowly throughout the week and each of us had progressed in one way or the other. She was very open and easy going, fun to have around. Can't wait to go back with Phillipa and most probably back to Santa Maria del Sole.
Phillipa is wonderful, she offers a wealth of knowledge in both Ashtanga and Iyengar but is very non-dogmatic and unpretentious in the way she teaches. A joy to learn from her.
Phillipa made the holiday, she is not only an amazing and very knowledgeable teacher, but she also has a special aura, kindness, and energy, and makes everyone smile and feel good! She was very flexible and made everyone very happy.
Phillipa is a great teacher! She is very knowledgeable in Ashtanga and Iyengar and I very much enjoyed our conversations. She accommodated everyone's level of yoga and I was able to deepen my practice. I had a relaxing and lovely time. The food was amazing, and the location and villa is beautiful. I highly recommend any retreat by Phillipa!
I loved the yoga, Phillipa knows the practice inside out, she has complete understanding of alignment in the postures which from my experience is rare. This means you can move much further in the postures. The house was beautiful and very old. We had a vegetarian cook who created great tasting food. Phillipa is a strong teacher and a thoughtful and encouraging host. Overall I feel energized, refreshed, and a little transformed for the better, a great experience.
Phillipa is very approachable and kind teacher, she guides her classes with precise remarks that are spot on and with humor. She makes you feel at ease and encourages you to take your time, reassuring you that things will come with time. Phillipa was very open to our wishes making sure everyone got from the practice what they were looking for, she created a very safe environment to improve and experiment with new positions. I will definitely look to come back to one of her retreats and would recommend this to anyone who wants to deepen there practice, share their love of yoga, and enjoy delicious healthy food.
It was perfect, lovely weekend of yoga, food, and chat with Phillipa. Thank you.
Being fairly new to yoga I really didn't know what to expect, but it was one of the most enjoyable weekends I've ever had! The yoga instruction was excellent and I learnt so much. The food was incredible and the setting perfect. I felt like i had been away for a week, absolute heaven.
Outstanding weekend away. The venue was tasteful, great size for the group, and a lovely location. Phillipa constructed a mixed yoga program which challenged but also energized. It was a great balance between activity and relaxation, the environment allowed a chance to truly escape. Accompanied by fantastic, fresh food it was all in all a wholesome and rejuvenating weekend. Restored my yoga practice. Thanks Phillipa!
Wonderful venue, peaceful and beautiful. Phillipa is a wonderful teacher, inspiring, and knowledgeable, I learnt so much over the weekend. Fabulous food, I couldn't fault any aspect of the retreat. Loved every second!
