Join Geraldine, an integrative holistic physiotherapist and experienced Radiant Hand yoga teacher who explored yoga originally as a means to support her well being.

Geraldine will bring her passion for life, her love of healing in all its forms and her joy in sharing and passing on the knowledge and experience she has gleaned in her life so far through the teachings of her lineage. Her infectious sense of  joy and laughter coupled with her sensitive intuitive nature ensure you will be taken care of throughout the weekend and guided through an exploration of how to nourish our minds, hearts and bodies on and off our yoga mats.

Geraldine will teach 4 yoga classes of 90 minutes over the weekend; 1 on Friday evening, 2 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday morning.
