The aim of individual tuition is to reflect the fundamentals of Krishnamacharya’s teaching, namely, transmission occurs through the direct experience of the teacher with the students personal Yoga practice and study through one to one meetings.
Who are one to one Yoga Immersion Intensive Retreats for?
Personal Yoga Immersion Intensives are available for Yoga students or teachers with specific interests or personal needs where the advantages of working with Yoga within an intensive personal retreat context would be more beneficial.
Traditionally Yoga was taught to adults on a one-to-one basis within a personal intensive context and this is still seen as a uniquely important way to explore our Yoga practice and study.
“Whether or not I like it, I should know where I am.
Otherwise we try to draw the line from where we are not to where we want to be.”

Whether your interest is Yoga as:
A number of lessons over two or more days offer time to develop and deepen all aspects of your Yoga practice and study.
Here time can be given to exploring your needs, interests and possibilities and develop and feedback on Yoga practices appropriate to your lifestyle, history, experience and commitment.
“The target of Yoga is ‘Svatantra’,
which means to discover our own technique.
‘Sva’ means itself and ‘Tantra’ means technique.
The techniques are in oneself and we must discover them;
if not we will depend on others. I am sick and I go to the doctor;
but finally I must become my own therapist. This is ‘Svatantra’.”
– TKV Desikachar
A Personalised Intensive Structure for a Yoga Practice and Study Immersion Sādhana involves meeting at my home in the Cotswolds, with a country setting and retreat atmosphere, a beautiful area in South Gloucestershire.
There are a number of countryside accommodation options nearby, all within a pleasant 15 minute stroll or short drive from my home.
We personalise a schedule for our time together, for example it can take the form of 2-3 hours meeting in the morning followed by walk through the lanes for lunch together at a nearby country mill. After a break we meet up again later in the afternoon for a further 1-2 hours lessons.
To ensure a focus and quality of contact I do not accept other students during our time together.
Fees for one to one Meetings
The Fee for Individual Sessions will be £56 per hour depending on the number of hours we meet each day. Payment in Sterling or by pre-agreed bank transfer facilities.
