At a glance

In a focused and yet playful way, experience how Ken integrates Yoga with Feldenkrais.

These yoga classes and moving meditation sessions are suitable for all levels, including complete beginners and those who have injuries or are restricted in their movement. The intuitive and spontaneous hands-on approach emphasizes the benefits of using your breath and developing an awareness of your inner process.

Participants will learn to use their bodies with intelligence, awareness and efficiency. The Eyerman Technique will ease you into new postures while encouraging you to explore movement in a way that is both developmental and restorative.

Ken seeks to work with you, by developing core movement, and helping you tune into the constant flow of life energy essential to maintaining health and clarity of mind.

About

Skyros attracts mostly solo travellers from all over the world. Although all ages are represented, approximately 70% are between 35 and 65. The Grange is a stunning Georgian country house, surrounded by greenery and close to Shanklin's sandy beach, cosy pubs and restaurants and the local train station.

Accommodation

Share a room with a friend or family member. Or choose single occupancy of a room. The supplement for single occupancy is £50 for two nights.

Inspiring Courses

Courses take place outdoors wherever possible and 'households' are socially distanced from each other by 2m. Holding the course indoors will necessitate shortening each two hour class to 2 x one hour classes to ensure smaller group sizes and social distancing. However, you will benefit from more individual attention.

Food & Drink

Holidays are inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meals are taken outdoors where possible. If indoors, tables are distanced from each other with more than one sitting. Table service will be in place.
