Winter Yoga Weekend
We head to the luxurious setting of the 42 Acres retreat space in Frome, Somerset for a magical winter weekend of yoga and an opportunity to revitalise and enjoy reconnecting with self and others. .
Dory and Rory teach strong traditional hatha yoga sessions that incorporate the mala and vinyasa approaches to practise. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for two hours.
The days will begin with silent meditation, pranayama and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free-time, massages and then the afternoon yoga practice which will build on what we have done in the morning and take us a little deeper into the poses.
In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, yin yoga, yoga nidra and chanting. A weekend enjoying the full spectrum of yoga.

Practitioners: Dory Walker &Rory Viggers
Dory has experienced the true spirit of yoga as transformational practice. She believes in the power of yoga to guide conscious evolution, individually and collectively.
Certified to advanced level and teaching full time since 2001, Dory has trained with various yoga schools, amongst them Sivananda (traditional hatha Yoga), Satyananda (yoga nidra and meditation), Krishnamacharya (Vedic Chant) and Dona Holleman (enlightened asana work), as well as studying yoga therapy with the Biomedical Trust. Dory teaches retreats and teacher training programmes internationally.
Through her own practice Dory has discovered that regular practice promotes effective, positive and healthy living and is inspired to help others establish a strong practise in their own lives. She believes strongly in making the yoga (union) adventure joyful, keeping it light and remembering to laugh! Dory teaches classes, courses and private tuition around Bristol, the South West and London. She is a dedicated yogini and mother.
Many years of yoga self practise (and too much tea) has kept Rory grounded. As the positive and transformative effects of yoga deepened, the transition to teaching was a natural progression. He now shares his experience of self empowerment, self purpose and self reflection that yoga initiates with others.
His teaching is informed and inspired by classical teachings of Hatha yoga that include Iyengar, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Dona Holleman’s enlightened asana work, and other disciplines such as Shaolin Wushu martial arts.
He continues to study with senior teachers and is currently on a 7 year programme with world renowned teacher Dona Holleman and her inspirational Centered Yoga philosophy (born from her personal experience and encounter with Krishnamurti’s philosophy, B.K.S. Iyengar’s Hatha Yoga, Castaneda’s shamanic religion and her friendship with Vanda Scaravelli).
