Pick and Mix
Deep Winter Online Retreat with
Tara Fraser and Nigel Jones
28-30th December 2021
Winter is a time for nourishing roots, folding inwards, breathing out, clearing the decks and general closing of the year that has passed.
Join Tara and Nigel for three days of 'pick and mix' yoga sessions to help you clear out the old and make space for the new. Choose from invigorating mini Astanga sessions for half an hour first thing in the morning, a nourishing hour of mid morning yoga, a meditation at dusk and a deep sleep promoting session in the evening.
Tuesday 28th, Wednesday 29th and
Thursday 30th December
Astanga Yoga 7.00-7.30am
Hatha Yoga 10.00-11.00am
Meditation at dusk 4.30-5.00pm
Deep Sleep Yoga 8.30-9.15
You can join us for all 4 sessions on any day for £25, or join all the sessions for 3 full days for just £60. Or you can drop by and book any individual sessions you want to come to as the mood takes you.
The sessions are themed and connect with one another but they also work as stand alone practices. You will need some yoga experience to come to the 7am Astanga yoga sessions, all the others are accessible for all.
The classes are online from our home in Devon, we will enjoy a little walk outside now and then after the yoga session in the morning, weather permitting, and show you some of the lovely old garden and house that we are restoring.

Tutor: Tara Fraser BWY DIP, BWY DCT,
I have been teaching yoga for over 25 years and training teachers for over 15years. My interest is in nurturing the individual skills and talents of the student teacher to develop their own distinctive style and quality in teaching, while honoring and knowing the roots of the practice, thus keeping yoga a living tradition. Although all my previous teacher training courses were run through the British Wheel of Yoga I am now offering this course independently as I wish to emphasise the practical and experiential nature of the yoga transmission over the paper-based planning style favoured by BWY.
My own yoga journey has included a broad range of experiences but has been heavily influenced by teachers in the tradition of TKV Desikachar including Sylviane Gianina, David Charlton and Ranju Roy and more recently by my work as a Rolfer and the teaching of Giovanni Felicioni and other teachers in the Scaravelli tradition. But on the way I have learned an appreciation of the potential of the Astanga Vinyasa system and the Iyengar Yoga school from whose teachers I have always gained insight and inspiration.
My work in Rolfing® (a type of soft tissue manipulation primarily concerned with fascia) has increased my ability to read and understand the way bodies move and this work feeds directly into my yoga teaching too.
I opened one of London’s first independent yoga studios, Yoga Junction, in 1999 and it is still running 21 years later with an amazing staff of around 16 wonderful yoga teachers, some of whom we trained. I am the author of several books on yoga, and mum to 4 children.
