We understand deeply the need for yoga teachers to retreat, both of us inhabiting that role ourselves. Us Yoga teachers struggle as much as our students, but are holding the space, and caring for other people as well, and this inevitably affects us deeply.

Jenny
I did my first meditation retreat when I was 22 and I understood that I was not alone in my pain, that I was ultimately responsible for my own happiness. Many years later, I have chewed, swallowed and occasionally spit out many teachings and ideas but I am still fascinated by what, why and how we do it and what happens next. Life is an open-ended proposal that just keeps expanding as my awareness grows. Endlessly.

 

Igor
I am forever grateful to all those who are inspiring me to take this journey, teachers, and masters from now and before, and to the everyday life heroes that silently put down a stone at a time on the road to love but I have always felt that it was my business to solve the riddle of life. And so I have developed a strong sense of responsibility and self-reliance in my practice and my spiritual path and I suggest you do too, for you know yourself best and you are your best friend. May we inspire each other to be loved and to be free.

    The location was amazing – beautiful wooded areas for camping and yoga practice. Kristy was a perfect host for the weekend. She made it a welcoming space for everyone, adjusted the schedule as the group required, created a caring, community environment for all and cooked tasty food to suit the needs of the individuals and group. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like a non-traditional yoga retreat which focuses on nature and people rather than on luxury accommodations. (If you like sleeping in a tent – which I do! – it feels luxurious anyway.) Rosanne Cooper From The Jewel Of Yoga Website

    Everything! I have never been on a yoga retreat and am a complete beginner. This holiday was much more than I expected and Kristy is a wonderful teacher/cook/organiser etc. The group gelled really well. It was like I already knew them. Kristy helped me, at a level that I understood, when and where appropriate. A real holiday to cherish in my memories. Doing yoga and mediation in different locations around the site worked brilliantly for me. I especially loved lying in the long grass, with a beautiful sky above and warm sun on my face, for one of the meditations. From The Jewel Of Yoga Website

    Kristy has been teaching Yoga to a client that I support with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. There is a real sensitivity that Kristy puts across in such simple down to earth ways, giving clear instructions and positive encouragement, adapting her teaching to the needs of the individual. My Client looks forward to the private one to one class and is comfortable with Kristy, following her instructions and maintaining focus which is in part due to her teaching abilities. The class helps to maintain flexibility and can be deeply relaxing and calming. I would not hesitate in recommending her to others. From The Jewel Of Yoga Website

    Kristy Young is the most amazing Yoga teacher I have ever had the good fortune to meet. Our clients ( with Learning Disabilities) have been able to complete their Beginners Level and are progressing well in Intermediate all due to Kristy's patience, enthusiasm,care and attention. We are hugely indebted to her as each client has improved their co-ordination skills, balance, and core strength. They have also learnt a very important lesson in relaxation , which can be witness (and heard!) at the end of the session ! Kristy is undergoing training in working with clients with Learning disabilities but is a natural. Thank you Kristy for being such an amazing mentor. From The Jewel Of Yoga Facebook Page
