Yoga Course 30th April - 2nd May 2010
An opportunity to practice Iyengar yoga in a wild and inspiring location
Yoga practice both relaxes and energizes the body and mind and brings vitality, flexibility, strength, concentration, self-confidence and mental calm.
Spend a weekend enjoying these beneficial effects with an experienced Iyengar tutor, combined with Tanera’s fresh air, scenery, peace and space...not to mention lots of wholesome meals and good company.
Martin Hall lives in Clashmore, near Lochinver, Sutherland, with his wife Aileen. He began practising yoga in 1990 and has been teaching since October 1997. Since moving to the north of Scotland in 1999 Martin has continued to develop his yoga practice, studying at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, on two occasions. He is a member of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Iyengar Yoga Institute and the Iyengar Yoga Association of the United Kingdom, and is a certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher. Currently, Martin teaches six yoga classes each week, in Stoer, Ullapool and Achiltibuie. Read more about Martin.

Please bring your own yoga equipment if you have it: yoga mat, 5 foam blocks, 2 bricks, 1 belt, yoga blanket, crepe bandage, and a bolster. Equipment will be transported to the island on the boat and carried from the pier to the accommodation in a quad-bike trailer. Please bring sturdy shoes and outdoor clothing for walking to the accommodation and exploring the island in between yoga sessions. At least a year's experience of Iyengar yoga would be helpful, but isn't essential.
Accommodation will be provided in the Island’s cosy holiday cottages: the Farmhouse and the Schoolhouse, both of which have wood-burning stoves and fantastic views. Wholesome home cooked vegetarian lunches and suppers will be served in the Farmhouse by 'Team Tanera', and you will help yourselves to breakfast in your houses.
All accommodation will be in single rooms unless you request otherwise. Non-practicing spouses, partners, or friends are very welcome to join us at a reduced rate; there is plenty of exploring or relaxing to do. Please ask us if you would like to extend your stay beyond the weekend; either before or after the yoga course.
The weekend is £180 per person; including tuition, transport to and from the Island, accommodation and meals.
