Yoga teachers make space and time to nurture, support and encourage their students in their practice. However, working in isolation and juggling, filling classes and family life pressures leave little time to recharge. Though it’s sometimes hard to admit it Yoga Teachers need a little TLC too!
But WHAT can a yoga teacher do to ensure their own well of good health is brimming full?
The elbowroom escape has created something special to take care of your energy needs and ignite your passion for yoga (while taking a well-deserved break from your students). This escape is a place to discuss the business of yoga and find solutions to common challenges. You may even view your own yoga practice in a completely new way.
Refill your resources and enjoy a yoga schedule designed for teachers to reconnect with yoga. There will be scrummy food, hot tubs, belly laughs, mischief and more…. Then curl up in what are reported to be the most comfortable beds on the island.
Wake up with a light nibble, then self-practice your heart out before a brazen brunch.
Be Inspired with Eithne
Our inaugural event workshop is with the exceptional Eithne Kennedy. Eithne has practised many styles of yoga including Hatha, Anusara, Shadow, Vinyasa Flow and brings aspects of these together to create dynamic energising classes in addition to gentle yin style classes which allow us to stop and listen.
Eithne’s weaves in her work as a Kinesiologist into her teaching style emphasising the importance of alignment and the breath while building strength and flexibility. She encourages you to find a balance between effort and ease, allowing you to find the space in your body that can take your practice a little deeper.
Reignite with Lisa
Enjoy an after dinner session with Lisa where she will spill the bean on the blood sweat and tears of thriving in the business of Yoga. 15 years of running a yoga business, along with another 20 working in marketing and product management, has (finally!) resulted in a successful enterprise. Lisa is happy to spill the beans.
Rewind with Lisa
This will be followed later in the day with a restorative and nidra session by The elbowroom’s own Lisa Wilkinson.

She encourages you to find a balance between effort and ease, allowing you to find the space in your body that can take your practice a little deeper. Eithne weaves the philosophical teachings of yoga into her classes, the importance of honouring the self which in turn ripples outwards and honours all living things, acknowledging that we are all one.
