Biographies

Gratia Churchill

The wonderful Gratia Churchill joins us for this reatreat bringining her fabulous yoga and healing touch:
Gratia was first introduced to Yoga in India in 1997, and was totally hooked loving the experience of stepping off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced. Yoga has been part of her life ever since!

She initially trained in the Sivananda style but over the years continued her development completing trainings in Zenways Yoga and iRest Yoga Nidra. She also has a love of slow, deep Yin Yoga, rejuvenative Restorative Yoga and Women’s Womb Yoga.

Gratia teaches in Brighton, where she is based, and has taught Yoga Nidra workshops in the U.K. and in Boston, USA. She has taught retreats in Egypt and well as closer to home. In 2007 she trained in Holistic Bodywork Massage in La Gomera, Canary Islands and she brings her healing touch into her classes.

Gratia loves sharing her passion for Yoga, and her classes will often be a diverse blend of yoga from different traditions. Gratia is part of Brighton Kirtan and leads Kirtan – the singing of Sanskrit mantras to create an uplifted and meditative state, and she can also bring sound healing into her sessions to awaken, clear and enliven the energy centres in the body.
