Welcome to the Aspire Yoga Newsletter
We are only 31 days away from the official start of Spring and the days are already brightening - best we keep going with our Sun Salutations after falling foul of the snow in the last few weeks! In this edition of the newsletter you will find details of our upcoming practices and also some recommendations for yoga events, retreats and holidays.
Reminder: there are no classes on Monday 18th (Maidenhead) and Tuesday 19th February (Penn) due to the half-term break.

2019 Yoga Events and Retreats
I've been asked many times for recommendations for yoga retreats, holidays and events so here they are, in no particular order! If you have any recommendations too please do share them with me for inclusion in future newsletters.
*World Yoga Festival, Reading*
4 days incorporating yoga asana from different lineages, pranayama, meditation, chanting, kirtan, talks and music concerts in a series of decorated and carpeted marquees set in a country park beside the Thames.
*Yoga Garden Party, Kent*
Details for 2019 are still in development but it'll be worth the wait! In the stunning grounds of Commonwork Farm, Bore Place, Kent (where I did my teacher training!), this is a fantastic event offering classes, therapy treatments, sound healing and so much more!
Yoga on a Shoestring
I have taken many a short-break with Yoga on a Shoestring and cannot recommend them highly enough. A fantastic range of retreats and holidays at different locations in the UK and across the world to suit a range of budgets, and often combining a range of activities. Personal highlight was the Lake District, combining hiking with yoga and some VERY delicious vegetarian cooking. Go on...treat yourself.
Words from the masters
"Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fix broken pieces together."
~ B. K. S. Iyengar
