The 2023 Course Programme

Nourishing yoga retreat in the Cambrian Mountains with Ash Bond YOAS Yoga Retreats
10 Aug - 13 Aug 2023

A yogi with the soul of a poet, Ash believes that yoga is the steady fire that fuels the body and inspires the mind. In yoga Ash has found a tool for liberation, a means to heal and to awaken our deeper authentic selves.

After spending a number of years as a secondary school teacher, Ash turned to yoga as a full time path, one that she has now been following for more than a decade. She has taught and travelled internationally, including five years teaching in Malaysia, China and Thailand and on the ‘Freedom through Movement’ project in Palestine.

Believing fully that presence is nurtured beyond the mat, Ash embraces influences from many movement patterns in her yoga teaching: rock climbing, running and free-diving are woven into dynamic vinyasa, steady bodywork and peaceful breath-centric restorative practices. Inspiration for her classes is rooted in the Earth’s elements and in the bodies and stories of the students that she welcomes.

“Yoga for me is a chance to remember what I have forgotten; to allow myself to feel.”

‘Fantastic retreat in Wales with Ash Bond. Felt much longer than a weekend, always a good sign. Great yoga, company, food, location! Highlight was swimming in a lake in the nearby nature reserve on the hottest of summer days. Happy memories!’
