These retreats combine introductory meditation teaching with a blend of traditional yoga and contemporary approaches to embodied movement. This playful synthesis of body based approaches to wellbeing (through meditation and movement) in the peaceful and beautiful environment of the retreat can help restore physical and mental vitality and balance in our lives.
Jane has always had a strong connection to Balquidder glen, first spending time exploring here as a child. Her first experience of retreat at Dhanakosa, and of learning to meditate, was in the late ‘90s and she has been returning regularly ever since, coming to live and work in the community for a few years from 2008.
Jane has had a personal yoga practice for many years and now enjoys sharing a yin/yang style approach. She blends Dru Yoga, a graceful and potent form of yoga, based on soft flowing movements and sequences, with Yin, a quiet, contemplative practice which utilises long-held poses to work deeply into the body, heart and mind.
Jane’s love of wild places, stillness, poetry and beauty supports a practice of developing deeper connection, compassion and embodiment.
