“We were looking for something different for a break/holiday after spending an exhausting year launching a new business. Following a fab review in the newspaper we booked hoping to get something out of the trip/experience that would help us kickstart a new healthier way for us, looking after ourselves a bit better. What we came away with was almost life changing and we’re now taking on board many of the things we learnt here.” - Dan, UK

YOGA
Tamsin teaches traditional yoga based on a combination of styles; Sivananda Yoga,  a series of postures with variations that are specifically designed to work on all physical and psychic centres of the body, provide complete flexion of the spine and balance the endocrine, nervous and parasympathetic systems – And Yin Yoga, that works to restore fascia (connective tissue) through holding postures for longer and has a deeply meditative affect to calm the mind. Her class begins with the practice of pranayama and meditation leading into a gentle flowing asana practice, resulting in feeling restored and relaxed.

The practice of yoga opens, clarifies, removes energy blocks and helps one to connect to the essence of their true nature – happiness. With long term commitment to the practice you can appreciate the ability to control the mind and transform ones life beyond the mat, beyond reactive emotions to a more gentle, peaceful approach to all that you do, with positive intentions that help guide you.

She has practiced varying styles of yoga and in 2012 took her 200 hours teaching course with Sivananda in the Himalayas, completing her 500 hour certificate in Southern India.
