Our first-ever yoga and meditation retreat: Unplug and Unwind!

Yoga Claire pic 1Join us in the tranquil heart of rural Tuscany for spiritual refreshment on The Watermill’s first-ever yoga and meditation retreat. We’ve called it Unplug and Unwind.

Our Watermill guests have been urging us for a number of years to run a yoga/meditation/wellbeing course here. Now we’ve found a wonderful tutor, Claire Murphy and we are ready to go! We think that Claire and The Watermill are the perfect combination for a yoga and meditation retreat where you can not only ‘unplug and unwind’, but also savour the true Italian lifestyle in Lunigiana, the unspoilt region of Tuscany surrounding the mill.

Yoga, meditation and massage have been a way of life for Claire for more than 25 years and she’s passionate about teaching them. Together we’ve created a unique five-day programme, with fresh and inspirational yoga and meditation sessions, plus inspiring visits to local historic and scenic attractions – and beautiful home-cooked Italian food and wines!  ** Please Note: this retreat will start on a Monday and end on a Saturday. You can find all about the course and Claire on our new Yoga retreats website, by clicking here.

Your yoga and meditation guide Claire Murphy

Claire Murphy head and shoulders 2 Claire Murphy ’s company, Esprit Yoga came into being in 1992: “The name epitomises all that I bring through my teaching – wisdom; intelligence; inspiration; mental balance; enthusiasm and devotion”

Claire’s style of teaching is very eclectic, borne out of studying and training in various traditions over the years across the UK and in many other areas of Europe and extensively in the USA. She has extensive training and teaching credentials which ensure that she is able to provide a fresh approach, based on current teaching methodologies and research. She brings a sense of humour and imagination to her teaching in order to make it accessible to everyone.

The sessions at The Watermill will be friendly and welcoming and no prior experience of yoga is necessary: all levels from beginner to intermediate will be catered for and we’ll also tailor our sessions to your particular needs. The classes are secular (non-denominational).

Yoga generic 3Claire says: “My aim is to offer classes that are fresh and inspirational, always being informed by the latest developments in yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices.”

Claire adds: “I am not aligned with any particular yoga school / tradition or teacher, as this allows me the freedom to be able to practise and teach the yoga that is respectful of who I am, which in turn, allows me to be respectful of the needs of my students.”

Come and Unplug and Unwind with Claire at The Watermill team next September!
