Attend a yoga day retreat, weekend break or a holiday for time to focus on you, your practice and relaxation.




I run occasional weekend workshops, sometimes with visiting teachers. Most of these are hosted at Maitri Studio, where other (non-yoga) workshops are also listed. You can book my own workshops through the booking form, or other events by following the links.

FRANCE 2018: 25 August - 1 September and/or 1-8 September

For the first time I am running two yoga holidays weeks back-to-back, so you could even come for a whole fortnight! Places are booking fast though so do get in touch if you're interested.

We're returning to Cordes-sur-Ciel in France, at the venue I've used before at Mas de Monges with Llouise and Bart. We fly into Toulouse. 

You can read more details here and book your place by sending me a deposit. It is £150 deposit and €650/750 balance for twin/single room. 

UPDATE 16 March 2018: these holidays are now FULL but do contact me as there is a chance a place will come up on a waiting list from a cancellation.  




The most relaxing and recuperative break so far, with the most delicious vegetarian home-cooked food. I loved the ethos at this place, beautiful surroundings and caring, welcoming owners. Can’t wait til next year!
A wonderful holiday in every way, from the yoga teaching by Claire to the venue at Casa D’Ouro with its amazing food and all the little touches which made it a very special experience.
What a fabulous holiday! I was able to stretch my body, relax my mind and expand my circle of friends with a yoga holiday with Claire at Bellevue where I enjoyed sumptuous food, local wines and all the beauty of this fabulous countryside
I was not particularly interested in doing anything other than meditation, yoga, swimming and eating! It was perfect!
