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

Your course weekend includes six hours of tuition across two days. This leaves plenty of time to explore the island on coastline walks or enjoy health and beauty treatments (where available, book in advance). Courses take place outdoors wherever possible and 'households' are socially distanced from each other. If held indoors social distancing of 2m will be in place or, if 1m plus, risks will be mitigated with the use of face coverings.

Food & Drink

Holidays are inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Table service and social distancing will be in place.
