I’d lost my way and now I’m back”
Upcoming Retreats 2021
23rd June – Women’s “Day Off” Retreat
“Lift your Spirits”
At The Quaives, Kent, CT3 1RU
One last space – Book Now
This will be an indulgent day for a wonderful group of women – a work out for your soul, featuring fine food and Kundalini Yoga to lift our spirits. I will share with you beautiful breath works, meditations with graceful mudras, and a powerful Kundalini Yoga kriya to bring healing to your nervous system. I will be creating space and joy inside of you to help you deeply relax and feel refreshed and fully inspired.
There will be a cracking playlist, thoughtful enquiry, deep conversation in good company with peace and quiet to digest it all, plus a gift of beautiful stationary courtesy of Nikki Strange to note it all down so you don’t forget your insights and learnings. I will of course be bringing my big beautiful gong to ease you into sublime states during relaxation.
This will be a safe space to reconnect with each other outside our of homes, away from our screens, immersed in nature in the beautiful Kent countryside. This will be a spiritually uplifting experience that leaves a deep and lasting impression of love and trust in ourselves and each other.
“It was like a short cut to a higher mind-set.
A whole different world opened up”
‘The Quaives’ is our destination. It’s a quintessentially English country estate, and little slice of rock and roll history. Once owned by Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac, The Quaives is now a luxurious yoga retreat centre set in 19 acres of lush green Kentish countryside, with a state of the art yoga studio. The studio can be fully ventilated and we have secluded gardens to practice in, if we get lucky with the weather.
The Quaives is super accessible from London. The 08.12 train from St Pancras will get you to Canterbury West by 09.08, after which it’s a 10 minute taxi ride. There is ample parking for those driving.
I’m pleased to announce that Ceri Jones will be our private chef for this special ‘day off’ retreat. I’ve run multiple retreats before and while I know you all lurve the yoga, seriously good food, seriously multiplies the good vibes!
Ceri’s beautiful food is the perfect accompaniment to what I want to create on this day which is a delight for all your senses. A great big thank you, to you, for getting though one hell of an interesting year.
All the food will be vegan and gluten free. We can easily accommodate food allergies and intolerances, please make them known on booking.
As in not quite the solstice but close. A couple of days after the height of the sun in the northern hemisphere with its maximum vitality available. A very auspicious time to come together to practice.
I am a skilled Kundalini Yoga teacher and give lots of space for the yoga to work its magic on you. The practice will create the spaciousness and joy within you required to take your consciousness and creativity to the next level.

Thoughts and Considerations
– I am so looking forward to come together again after more than a year apart. Holding the space for people’s sensitivities so everyone can relax is a fine balance and I’ve decided the easiest way to do that is to ask everyone to take a lateral flow test five days before and on the morning of our retreat, whether you’ve been vaccinated or not.
There is no perfect solution to a complex problem but as testing is free and relatively inconvenient to perform, and it will help those who are vulnerable or feel more anxious, to relax and enjoy spending time with other people.
– This is an intimate retreat capped at 12 participants. There is just one last space left, if you would like to come please book now. We will practice outside and in a very airy studio with plenty of distance between each other.
– If I have to cancel the retreat to follow government guidelines or if I test positive for covid then I will reschedule this retreat to Sept 23rd. I will give you the option of rescheduling to that date or a full refund.
– If you have to cancel because you received a positive covid test result I will refund you your investment, minus £100
– I ask respectfully to give us some much needed ‘time off’ that the c word not be used at all during our special day together.
Please email me Kiranjot, to say hi, and let me know you’d like to come. I will send you my bank details for a direct transfer of £247 and a heath / yoga questionnaire to get to know you, your current yoga practice and your needs better.
Thank you. I am so looking forward to spending this day together.

10 % of Profits go to Charity
It’s a yogic concept called ‘dasvandh’ i.e. at 10th of our income doesn’t belong to us, it belongs to the greater good. We’re lucky enough to have the relative freedom to travel and time and safe space to relax and practice Kundalini Yoga. Giving money like this is my little offering to help in some small way readdress the dreadful imbalance of wealth and opportunity in the world.
The charity I support is Lapis Lazuli Schools run by Naomi, who I used to teach down the road from in Kings Cross many years ago. Naomi was born and raised in Kabul, Afghanistan and she’s built, floor by floor, a co-ed school in Kabul Afghanistan for Hazari children off the back of the proceeds of her charity boutique Pop Up 38. She’s since finished the school in Kabul and is now building a second school in Bamiyan.
I love direct action and I love nice clothes so it’s a winning combination for me. Every time I run a retreat I gladly give 10% of the profit to her and the children of Afghanistan. Check her out on instagram @popup38 and pay her a visit. She stocks the most amazing vintage and designer secondhand and samples. I buy most of what I wear from there.
