Sky Jane

From professional dancer to Ashtanga Yoga teacher has been one exciting journey. It was during a trip to LA I found mysef in an Ashtanga Yoga Mysore class and it totally gripped me. It resonated with my love of freedom of movement coupled with routine sequencing and alignment. I'd found a new passion. The next step was India, so every year I return to Mysore to re connect with my teachers and the very source of yoga. I believe in the power of all Eastern healing arts and qualified in Thai yoga therapy - Chavutti Thirumal - Ayurvedic Marma Therapy - Thai Foot Massage and Nada Yoga.

The entire weekend from start to finish was incredibly well organised and relaxing. Sky is a fantastic yoga teacher and it was great to have such one on one attention. Ashtanga is definitely something I’d like to keep up! The vegan food was particularly excellent and the gong bath on Saturday night was quite an experience! Very easy to get to from London and well worth the money. I’d definitely go again!

"Such a good location to nip away and reconnect. "

Really down to earth, but true to yoga in every sense. Really varied schedule to give you a recharge in every way.

"A wonderful retreat; challenging, rewarding and great fun"

Sky and her daughter Ebony are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The house is beautiful and the food was amazing. All the participants got on really well, everyone was kind and interesting and we had a lot of fun.

The Ashtanga yoga was demanding, which is what I wanted. Sky is a very good teacher, moving things along all the time, but I never felt under pressure when I couldn't keep up. I had a lot of personal attention in the Yoga classes which was extremely helpful. I feel I made a lot of progress. I also got a lot from the meditation sessions which were very well structured.

I had a massage from Tricia on the Saturday afternoon which was the best massage I have ever had. I felt huge benefit from it.

The Yin yoga class and the Tai Chi class were very enjoyable and provided a pleasant balance to the Ashtanga.

"Perfect introduction to Ashtanga"

I really enjoyed the Ashtanga Yoga and learning the primary series. It was very challenging and Sky got incredible progress out of all of us. The food was incredible and always plenty of it, but it was so healthy that we never felt bad going in for seconds!

"A perfect yoga experience"

A fabulous weekend of discoveries and entertainment, the food was just amazing, the yoga classes challenging and instructive. The location is ideal as it's very close to the train station. I highly recommend this retreat.

"Wonderful inspirational weekend"

An inspirational weekend in a wonderful home 40 minutes from London. As a beginner to Ashtanga yoga I found Sky to be a great teacher, lots of energy positive, caring and very approachable. From morning meditation, yoga, Tai Chi and Nada yoga experience it was a weekend I will cherish. The food is fantastic a big thanks to Ivy, Reta, Sky and Susanne. A great friendly bunch of people also on retreat. The house is beautiful and Sky has created a haven away from busy lives.

My first experience of sleeping on a futon on the floor for years and it was very comfortable and liberating. The beautiful curtains separating surrounding your bed made you feel as if you were in a room alone.

All I can say is book now.

A wonderfully relaxing weekend and i've taken away some great tips and ideas to keep up practising at home. Felt very calm by the end of the weekend and was made to feel very welcome.

It was clear Sky had put a lot of thought and effort for those staying on the retreat. Lots of little touches like flannels in the bathroom, earplugs, yoga mats if you hadn't brought your own, towels and blankets. The room exceeded my expectations with the Indian silk tents looking lovely in a bright room with tall ceilings. The house is amazing and feels so light, airy and welcoming as you walk in with lovely scents of inncence. The house is spacious and has plenty of rooms to relax and read and walk around the garden. The food was great and Sky and Ivy really were really kind to meet my dietary requirements. The yoga challenged me which was good but left me feeling wonderfully stretched. I would definately go again and would highly recommend the retreat.

"Fantastic Chill Out"

Loved the food, people and yoga. You get a great amount of yoga for the amount of time you are there and the alterations and advice given is great. You also have a laugh whilst doing it. Sky has an amazing sense of humor. Food is healthy and fabulous. The house is the perfect setting to switch off. Looking to return in the summer xx

"Amazing retreat "

Loved the challenging yoga, the peacefulness of the house, the food, the morning smoothies. The accommodation arrangement was very thoughtful, with beautiful curtains hanging between each sleeping area and luxurious bed linen.

"I loved it!"

Sky and her team were kindness itself, and the whole weekend was inspiring and relaxing. The Ayurveda-based food was delicious. The house is beautiful, spacious and welcoming, and set in its own lovely grounds, with a wood full of rabbits! The classes were varied and well planned, challenging enough without being too tough! I particularly enjoyed the Creative Yoga Beats class. The Sound Bath organised on Friday night set the tone for an exceptional spiritual experience and a memorable step on the journey for every participant. I could not recommend this retreat more highly

"Ashtanga retreat May bank holiday weekend "

The accommodation was stunning. A beautiful house to retreat to. I was a bit nervous about sharing a room with strangers, but Sky has created personal ‘tent’ like spaces in the very large rooms, so I felt that I had my own space and privacy. I slept very well both nights. The ashtanga Yoga was a welcome challenge for me, as I usually practice vinyasa flow. I will certainly be looking to attend ashtanga to improve my practice. Sky is a perfect host - very welcoming and down to earth, also very wise and interesting. Tally’s vegan food was delicious and has kick started me into healthy eating for the summer. Another welcome treat was the gong bath. All in all a lovely group of people and a five star experience.

"Strongly recommend"

I had such a great time at Sky's retreat. She tries to bring the most authentic Mysore style yoga experience, I guess it's true not just because of the teaching but also the room temperature (warm, like in India), room arrangement (shared rooms) etc. It's different and really fun. Her house is so beautiful (can't really be captured in the photo) and everything is set up to make you feel welcomed and relaxed. There are plenty of classes and given it's Ashtanga it was really good "work out". I couldn't believe how much I've learnt and progressed over the weekend! Also a huge thanks to Emily (Sky's daughter) for the fantastic food. The location is so close to London yet totally away from the city and crowd as well. Everything was just great, thank you Sky!

"Sky Ashtanga hot yoga retreat"

Sky was extremely welcoming and accommodating to all of our need, I found the whole experience amazing and uplifting. Go and fully immerse yourself in the experience that Sky has to offer, including the vegan way of eating. I would thoroughly recommended this to anyone who is interested in yoga, I have dipped in and out of yoga over the years but do't attend classes or practice it regularly but this didn't limit what I could do.

"Beautiful, relaxing, yoga-filled weekend"

I really enjoyed the yoga classes. Sky is a wonderful teacher and notices what your body is doing and what it is capable of - she supports as you push your body's limits. No judgement only encouragemeant, I came away feeling so relaxed and pleased with my progress.

The food was delicious - I have an egg allergy which was 100% catered for.
