About the Yoga

Our yoga for the retreat in Derbyshire will be held in an indoor studio.

Each class is designed to the energetic needs of the group and this is reflected in the overall pace and rhythm of your yoga. The level and dynamics are in harmony with the participants and modifications will be given for all levels and abilities, the time of day and the activities enjoyed that day.

I am a strong believer in all levels taking there practice together as this enables us all to enjoy the same practice but to shape it to suit your personal needs an requirements. Whether you want your practice to be bold and powerful or maybe more flowing and calm, depending on how each of us is feeling at that time on our mats.

We are all unique in so many different ways and this should be reflected on how we turn up for ourselves on our mats each time.

Yoga instructor Stockport

Leise Davies


Yoga Instructor

Leise's experience goes back over twenty eight years, when she turned to healing techniques for herself whilst going through an extra tough patch in her own life. 


Discovering different styles and techniques of yoga and meditation in countries around the world, she found it so important teaching yoga in such a way, believing that everyone should practice it staying true to themselves rather than what we think others would want us to do, as life throws different things at us all, so it should be practiced with love and compassion for yourself each time that you arrive on your mat.

With a huge lust for life, Leise's passion in her teaching is to show everyone how to show up for themselves in life, with more freedom and positivity to live a happier life. Wether it is to help with stress, confidence, the menopause, flexibility, fitness, weight management.

Throughout the weekend Leise combines a number of practices and techniques which all work together perfectly, releasing physical tension and emotional blockages, restoring balance to the mind, body and spirit and providing you with techniques that you can take back home with you into your lives.



Who is this suitable for?

This retreat is suitable for those want to take that time out for themselves, who maybe want relaxation but also adventure! Men and women are welcome as well as solo travellers, couples and friends.

You do not have to take part in all of the activities, as we all want different things but it's always worth a go to explore what may be perfect for you.

Wow wow wow What a retreat!

Wow wow wow what a retreat! I'm continuing to experience the benefits of all our practices that we enjoyed throughout our SOUL weekend together. From meeting like minded beautiful women to intrudusing new ways of mindfulness/yoga. I want to say a big thank you to Leise for developing a bespoke retreat that has supported me on my journey - recovering from burnout. I enjoyed the retrreat so much that I have  also signed up for the follow up retreats in May. Thank you once again Leise. Ruth x

My Second Retreat

This is the second retreat that I have been on with Leise and I can confirm that they are life affirming. A place to explore how best to manage life by abating your mind and body. All this in a safe atmosphere, guided by the most amazing yoga teacher and fellow travellers I have had the luck to meet. Great food, lots of activity, breath work, yoga, walking, talking and generally  joining with people who really want to live. I particularly love this time with Leise  and other people because it's accessible . Whatever level you find your place. Whether it's yoga classes, sound baths, cacao ceremonies, you won't be disappointed when you join.

Classes and a retreat literally saved . . . 

Classes and a retreat literally saved my life. After being widowed, I was so lost in  grief, I did not know what to do. Learing to use breath, my body and mind to enable me to function and find peace has been incredible.

The retreat literally reenergised me and gave me more toold to stay well. Two marathons and and two years later, i'm on the right track. Leise teaches and handholds in equal amounts. She knows yoga but also teaches you to listen and know your body and make yoga work for you.

Hope Valley yoga retreat 2022

Had a fantastic time enjoying every minute of my first yoga retreat. Leise was amazing, very professional and brilliant at what she does. Everything from the yoga, meditation, accommodation and the food were superb. I would highly recommend Soul Yoga to anyone thinking of booking a retreat. I've booked for next year and talked my husband into coming too.

Beautiful Retreat and amazing People!

Leise's yoga retreats are completely unique and truly special. Beautiful countryside setting, lovely accommodation and exceptional home cooked meals, The yoga and meditation was amazing - Leise is so knowledgeable and such a fantastic and welcoming host. I'm booking next year's retreat as  soon as I can.

My 1st retreat weekend with Leise

My 1st encounter yoga retreat weekend in a countrysidAnd the best part is that all of the meals  are freshly prepared and delicious, wit the best cookies, shortbread and sorbets. I will be rebooking my next retreat wit Leise as soon as I can.e with Leise was amazing. We have all shared a memorable moment, as a group as well as a personal connection with ourselves. Leise has ensured that I feel welcome and comfortable wit the people in the group as a newcomer. Moreover she was there to support and answer any questions that I had. .

I can not say enough nice things

I can not say enough nice things about Leise and the yoga retreat. I attended the May 2022 one in Castleton for my birthday with my hubby and we had such a lovely time. We are vegan so Leise made sure that we had enough food options and plenty of food to go round. The food was home made and delicious :) I even got a home made birthday cake which was super cute and special.

I have never meditated before but with the guided classes I managed this and loved it. I love yoga so it was the oerfect weekend for me. The people who attend were also very friendly and made the weekend all that more special.

I had the pleasure

I had the pleasure of joining Leise on the Derbyshre  retreat and I can honestly say that it was amazing. Leise is a great teacher and out everyone at ease. Being a novice at yoga I was a little nervous  on how I was going to find it. I soon found out that there was no need for nerves.

The experience itself was really something and I learnt lots that I plan to fit into my day to day life. I've alreadt booked onto a second retreat for next year and can't wait. I can't recommend Soul yoga retreats enough, everyone needs this in there life.
