- Hire Lendrick
In this weekend retreat, your teachers, Tom and Irene, have the aim of passing on their love and enthusiasm for the ancient teachings of the East, in the nurturing and safe environment of Lendrick Lodge.
To quote Yogacharya B K S Iyengar, “Those who embark upon the path of Yoga, must eat well and sleep well.” This, you will most certainly do, thanks to the loving care of the staff at Lendrick and the delicious vegetarian/vegan meals they provide!
Tom’s yoga style is a direct result of his own fine-tuning by Mr. Iyengar, who sadly passed away on the 20th August 2014. Tom has practiced yoga since the early 1960’s and started teaching in the early 1970’s. He qualified as an Iyengar teacher in 1979, inspiring Irene to train and qualify in 1984. In 1981 he spent time with Mr. Iyengar in Pune, India and later in the U.K. and has shared that style, precision and deep understanding of Yoga ever since.
In 1981, as the most senior teacher in the West of Scotland, Tom was given permission to train teachers and he has inspired many students to become teachers themselves. His dedication, lifelong commitment and infectious sense of humour, shine through his teaching and make for a weekend of “serious fun,” in which hard work, relaxation and the “joy of the stretch” all combine.
This is an enlivening and uplifting yoga and qi gong retreat, for those both new to the path and also for those with well establised practises.
Come and stand in Lendrick’s standing stone circle and feel the chi (energy) from the earth, the trees and mountains that surround you and from the water in the burn, which flows into the nearby loch. Hear the birds singing around you as you practice the ancient art of Qigong within that circle and feel the powerful presence of nature enfolding you, as you are given a taste of Zhan Zhuang, a non-moving and very powerful form of Qigong.
Wow! What are you waiting for?
