We are delighted Josie Sykes taught our first 2014 yoga holiday and Easter retreat. Josie's knowledge of yoga techniques and their interactions with the body and mind inspired a transformational approach to guests yoga practice. 


Josie's influences range from the Feldenkrais Method, a very tangible movement therapy, to Clive Sheridan and the highs of more subtle pranayama. Svaha Yoga in Amsterdam is her yoga home where she started practising many years ago to counteract the excitement of a busy vocation as a very successful and creative international photographer. Slowly the yoga and teaching took over. Now she teaches and keeps Svaha yoga shipshape for Gosta and Patrick, her tremendously dedicated and gifted teachers.


On this retreat there was opportunity to experience the full spectrum of yoga magic; asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting and Josie's ingenious take on all things yogic.
