Team Leader

Cotswold Yoga Retreat

Advanced Yoga teacher Jo Fellows will lead the retreat.

Jo believes that the roots of wellbeing can be found in nature and that following the years’ natural rhythms is not only best for the future of our planet, but is wonderful for our own wellbeing, too. For more information about Jo, do read her blog below and her latest article from Cotswold Life magazine.

Jo Fellows is an advanced yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance International), Qi Gong teacher, Reiki Master/teacher, sound therapist (Peter Hess Institute) and meditation teacher (BSoM). Her classes and treatments are designed to revitalise your spirit and restore balance to your mind and body.

Teaching with great sensitivity, compassion and care, Jo is committed to empowering anyone who is on their journey to seek themselves and their joy whether through yoga, qigong, reiki, sound or meditation.

They are warm and cosy with a double bed (plus sofa bed if required), wet room with loo, galley kitchen, TV and relaxing seating area. All bedding and towels are included.


Yoga retreat Catering

You will also be fully catered for during the retreat with breakfast, lunch and dinner served at the lovely Nuttery Café in Notgrove village during your stay.

Wholesome and locally sourced nutritious food will be prepared and cooked each day by chef Darren and served at the Nuttery next to the studio where all your classes will be taking place.

Please do let Jo know if you have any special dietary requirements or allergies when booking.
