Yoga Retreat with Diana Shipp at the Eclipse

Diana invites you to join her for a six-day retreat at the magical time of the New Moon in Cancer. This is the ideal time to enjoy a nurturing retreat, with gentle yet powerful yoga, nourishing fresh food cooked with love, and plenty of time to restore and revive, and to resolve any issues as you walk in the pine forests, relax by the pool or while away the afternoon in a hammock.

Diana says: In the morning we will enjoy an energising practice – based on classical yoga (‘effortless effort’ not boot camp!) and in the afternoon there will be a mixture of yoga nidra, restorative yoga, pranayama, posture work, visualisations and meditations. All designed to bring you a new awareness – a healthy, relaxed and strong body, a fulfilled spirit and peaceful mind.

What is the use of a strong flexible body if we live with anxiety, stress and fear? I have also trained in NLP and Spiritual Hypnotherapy and I try where appropriate to bring these techniques and understandings to my teachings – to help you in whatever way is for your greatest and highest good.

The retreat is suitable for all – whatever your experience or physical abilities. This is your time, and I will try to help you enjoy your practice and benefit from it to the best of my ability.


“I’ve timed this retreat to coincide with the transformative energies of the new moon and the total solar eclipse – both in the most nurturing sign of Cancer. Reputed to be the perfect time for making new starts, it’s a time of high energy. Take time to retreat at this special time to find your true power and strength.”


Diana, who has yoga teaching diplomas from the British Wheel of Yoga and the Sivananda Vedanta Organisation in India, is a very experienced teacher who has been teaching since 1991 and leading retreats around the world since 2002. She owns and leads holidays at her own residential centre in Kerala Kailasam Yoga, now dividing her time between the UK (Norfolk) and India each year.

Her approach is down-to-earth, creative, fun and caring, with an emphasis on the spiritual aspects of yoga. Running her business in India, teaching and practicing yoga and working alongside the people of Kerala for the past 18 years, has lent an authenticity and wisdom to her teaching.

Gentle yet powerful and transformative hatha yoga, with the emphasis on finding out who we truly are and experiencing that inner peace behind the chatter of the mind.
