Nourish your mind, body and soul at our yoga, sound healing, and breathing retreat days
Discover what previous participants thought of their yoga retreat with us!

I’ve not done yoga for a while and I’ve missed it so the retreat felt like a good way to get back into things. I think price would have been the only reason I might not have booked, but actually, it was very reasonable for how much was covered.
On the day I remembered how much I love yoga and how good I feel afterwards! Also, as well as being delicious, the lunch was really interesting. I’m keen to learn more about better ways I can eat and how as a family we can nourish ourselves better.
The thing I liked most about the day was the sound bath. It was super tingly!
The benefits of doing a retreat with Emma and Gemma is lots of time for relaxation which feels quite indulgent, a chance to focus on yourself and a reminder for how important self care is.
I would definitely recommend this retreat day. I think it was a great reset button for me and, as above, a reminder to take the time to look after myself. I had a lovely day and felt so relaxed afterwards! Thank you!

I haven’t done much yoga but I had enjoyed Emma’s mum and baby yoga classes and wanted to try and do more. I had also never had a sound bath or tried yoga nidra and have been interested for sometime in learning more about paleo food. I hoped I would feel less anxious, stressed and tired.
On the day I discovered yoga nidra, sound baths, paleo food is gorgeous and that we only mainly breathe through one nostril at a time! I loved yoga nidra the most!
Three benefits of doing the retreat day would be meeting nice people, learning and experiencing new things, and time out for myself.
I would recommend this retreat day because it is a fun, friendly, supportive atmosphere and prior yoga experience is not necessary. 
I have learnt that I struggle to breathe through my nose and routinely mouth breathe. The breathing exercises have been really helpful. I feel like I’m mainly breathing through my nose now, thank you! 
Thanks for making us all feel so welcome, I really enjoyed the day! X

Thanks for the yoga retreat day, I really enjoyed it! I booked on it as I was interested in the sound bath and I thought it would be a lovely relaxing day.
I discovered that I enjoyed yoga much more than I thought and I really enjoyed paleo food, it was fab!
The benefits of the retreat are that it gives you a chance to relax and rebalance, learn more about yoga and meditation, and learn more about great food.
I would recommend coming on a retreat day as it’s a great chance to relax, stretch and spend a day focussing on yourself. Everyone should do this!
I so enjoyed the day and felt amazing the days following. I felt the way you put the class together and the way you delivered each section was so professional and done so well. I’m so pleased I was fortunate to enjoy this fantastic day. Thank you!

Your retreat instructors
Emma Farrell
Gemma Fox
Jacqui Storm

Emma Farrell (BSoc Sc (Hons), MA (Econ), MAR, Dip HypB) studied yoga with the International Sivananda Organisation and completed further training in pregnancy yoga and yoga nidra with the Sitaram Partnership and Yoga Campus.

She gained her reflexology qualification at the Central London College of Reflexology and her Hypnobirthing qualification with The Hypnobirthing Association in London. She has also completed further training in hand reflexology and head massage at the Central London College of Reflexology.

Emma is also an Emergency First Response Primary (CPR) and Secondary (First Aid) Care Instructor Trainer, as well as a freediving instructor trainer. She is fully insured and a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the national voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners in the UK.

With a background in yoga and freediving, Emma is passionate about unlocking the power of the breath to benefit all aspects of your pregnancy and life. The biggest reward for her is hearing feedback from her students and how both yoga and hypnobirthing and have helped them and their partners, and then seeing the beautiful babies at mother and baby yoga!

An expert in yoga nidra, Emma uses this profoundly deep relaxation practice in all her classes, and has created her own yoga nidra recordings.

Gemma Fox is a yoga teacher, aromatherapy and Ayurvedic massage practitioner.

She first became a Hatha yoga student whilst in India in 2003. She continued her yoga practice back in the UK whilst studying for her first massage qualification.

She completed a Shamanic yoga teacher training in Peru in 2012 and then a Hatha yoga teacher training in Mysore in 2015 alongside her Ayurvedic massage practitioner course. 

Gemma took the Barbara Ann Brennan energy healing course in 2015 followed by her pregnancy yoga teacher training with Emma Farrell in 2016.

Gemma’s teaching style includes a combination of Vinyasa flow style Hatha yoga, with guided visualisation, meditation and energy work to create a dynamic fusion that is spiritually as well as physically nourishing. 

Her shamanic training lends itself to creating new and interesting ways of working, sometimes incorporating freestyle movement and voice-work. She is adept at holding space and guiding people to discover their inner stillness and connecting with the wisdom inherent in their own bodies.

Gemma feels that a well crafted yoga class is so important amidst our culture, bringing an oasis of peace and spiritual connection to our busy and stressful lives.

Her classes offer a peaceful, non-judgemental atmosphere and a practice that is available to people of all levels of experience.

Jacqui is a yoga teacher and breath therapist.

As a teenager she started to explore the benefits of Reiki, Reflexology and Deep Tissue Massage, and then studied for four years at the Scandinavian College of Chiropractors in Stockholm and the International Su Jok Acupuncture Association.

Jacqui is a qualified lecturer in Twist Movement Therapy, a Meridian Therapist, and has diplomas from The College of Natural Nutrition and the Avalon Insititute of Rebirthing.
She trained as a yoga teacher with Sadhana Mala and continues her ongoing continuing professional development with them. Her therapeutic breath work training is with the Avalon Institute of Rebirthing and the Sondra Ray school of Liberation Breathing.

In 2000 she moved to Bath and opened The Bath Back Clinic. Whilst working on peoples backs she realised the strong link between back pain, emotions and nutrition. This led her to study EFT and Emotrance with Passion for Health and Nutritional Therapy with Metabolics.

She later studied Natural Nutrition with Babara Wren at the College of Natural Nutrition and was awarded an advanced diploma in natural nutrition.She regularly returns to Sweden to further her knowledge at The Stockholm Su Jok Centre where she qualified as a lecturer for Su Jok Acupunture – Cycle 1.

Jacqui now combines Spinal Therapy with Breath Work  because over the years as a spinal therapist she has learnt that chronic back pain is always accompanied by stress and emotional upset. A big part of the road to recovery is to address both these areas in life. The spinal work is focused around freeing the nervous system, realigning posture and re-balancing the muscular skeletal system.

It is her understanding that all human beings have an inner healing intelligence, and this is what she wants to help people to access.
