Instructors

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.
Ebony Jane
Ebony Jane is studying with CNM, London, as a Naturapathic Nutritionist - Qualified in Bio Medicine. It was during her visit to India in 2016, studying Ayurvedic medicine with Dr. Jalaja Suresh BAMS, Ebony realized that her passion lies with helping people to heal their body naturally, with a special focus on acne and hormones. Ebony is a professional dancer, actress and singer, has experienced the benefits of Ashtanga yoga and currently inspires healthy living through her Youtube videos.

Spa treatments

We really don't know the full extent of the power of touch. When was the last time you had a full body massage? The feeling of relaxation, letting go, whilst the body is gently manipulated back into balance - homeostasis. A massage goes beyond the physical being to affect our brain chemistry. It reaches to our stress levels, promotes the release of serotonin and lowers our heart rate. The gentle massage of the skin with oils increases nutrition to the cells and encourages skin cell regeneration. Toxins are excreted, improving skin colour and tone.

Tricia McClean is a London-based masseuse using Neal's Yard and Elemis products. SkyYoga can book Tricia for the weekend; please show your interest in having a massage when booking the retreat. Tricia offers a very special price for retreaters! Her massages are amazing - see guest feedback.
