Workshops & Retreats


A retreat is a beautiful gift you can give yourself! Our Yorkshire retreat is designed to help you slow down, recentre and reset your energy levels with balanced nutrition and yoga practices with two teachers. Time to truly relax and reconnect to YOU in peaceful and beautiful surroundings, whilst ensuring you return home feeling refreshed and inspired by what you have learnt and practiced with like-minded people. 


Jean-Claude’s yoga journey began in 2006, when he was a full time chef. JC, as he is affectionately known, began to notice the benefits of his yoga practice and how it helped with the stress of his job. He took a 200hr YTT in 2008 to develop his knowledge and cover classes during his free time. By 2014, JC was a featured teacher at the Festival and also featured prominently in Sianna Sherman’s ‘Mythic Yoga Flow’ DVD & online series. JC took the leap and left his job to become a full-time yoga instructor in 2015 and furthered his teaching by taking a 300 hr YTT with Sianna and a Gravatonic Swing YTT in 2016. JC is a Senior Yoga Teacher registered with Yoga Alliance and runs Rasa YTT in the UK and abroad. Jean-Claude’s teaching style is based on alignment and biomechanics, weaved with myth, stories and breath awareness to guide students on their own path. 

Adrianne trained for 5yrs as a contemporary dancer from 1987, and after having a back injury throughout training this placed an immediate halt on a career in dance. Whilst building a 30yr business as a Freelance Event Director in a corporate and stressful environment, Yoga became part of her rehabilitation in 2010 to manage chronic pain and mental well-being. Adrianne’s natural progression was to train as a ‘Real Flow Yoga School’ Yoga Alliance instructor in 2017 and founded ‘Indyoga’. Adrianne is passionate about her teaching through a ‘flow state’ approach by introducing the chakra system and positive psychology for daily life transformation. Her sequences offer breath led movement from the physical and energetic bodies, combining flow and focus, providing a complete and balanced practice. Adrianne is also a qualified Reiki II practitioner, Paddleboard and SUP Yoga Instructor.


…is not named ‘Gods own county’ for nothing!

Home to three National Parks and two International Dark Sky Reserves. North Yorkshire is one of the most diverse areas of unspoilt and outstanding natural beauty in England. 

Filled with rolling dales & expansive moors, wild waterfalls & meandering rivers as well as a rugged and picturesque coastline, the county is steeped in Roman and Viking heritage, and has something to offer everyone. We have no doubt you will want to extend your stay.


…is just 4 miles from York. Deighton Lodge is a peaceful and welcoming converted farmhouse with 10 bedrooms and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. 

A landscaped garden for games, yoga or relaxation and a purpose built studio with all the props you need. Mountain bikes are available with many walks and trails next to the lodge.

A designer outlet and open water swim lake are both 5mins drive. The Yorkshire Dales, Moors and Coast are all within an hours drive.
