Yoga Weeks @ GCH
Enjoy a relaxing week of Yoga and cycling in the sun with Yoga with Donna and the usual great hosting from GCH
Donna is originally a North Yorkshire lass moving to Nottinghamshire nine years ago. She came to yoga after a number of back surgeries resulting from degenerative disc disease and a curvature of the lumbar spine. Finding it painful and difficult to enjoy impact sports, Donna fell in love with cycling and started an award winning women’s cycling blog, Ordinary Cycling Girl.
After a stressful career in public sector offender management and continued back trouble she found herself seeking strength, flexibility and balance on the Yoga mat. She has found yoga to be life-changing in terms of improving the health of her spine and core strength. Donna trained with Sun Power Yoga in 2017 and teaches a flowing style of yoga which brings a blend of Hatha for traditional postures, Sivananda yoga for mind and breath work, Iyengar for strength and alignment and Ashtanga for heat and flexibility. With metal rods and plates in her lumbar spine, she firmly believes that Yoga is for everyone and looks forward to welcoming you to the mat, whatever your experience and ability.

A Typical Day…
As with all our weeks the itinerary will be flexible and likely to change day to day.
Each day will include two yoga sessions, one in the morning and one in the evening (Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin based) with a primary focus on strengthening the core and back, and bringing openness and flexibility to the hips, chest and shoulders. Sessions will include Pranayama (breath work and techniques) to help improve lung capacity and to aid recovery as you progress with your cycling.
Sandwiched between the Yoga sessions you will get the chance to explore the island on 2 wheels on one of our multitude of routes. Visit remote mountain villages or cycle along the coast for a coffee, expect to cycle for 3 – 5 hours depending on how you are feeling. Also expect at least one designated rest day to spend at your leisure.
1:1 sessions with Donna are available at an additional rate. These are perfect if you are looking for advice and a tailored yoga plan for a specific health need or injury. Please contact Donna directly at yogawithdonna.co.uk to discuss.
