27-29 October 2017: Liberate & Elevate Retreat

Liberate & Elevate – Teacher Mentoring Retreat

created by Naomi Absalom with Ana Muriel and Mollie McClelland Morris

LIBERATE & ELEVATE – A weekend retreat for the development and nourishment of teachers’.

Our third Liberate & Elevate retreat – a weekend full of personal practice, practical workshops, mentoring and above all sustenance. These retreats are for all teachers, of all styles and experience. We simply wish to create a potent opportunity and space for teachers to come together; to share, to explore, to gem up, to acknowledge both the joys and challenges of teaching, to learn from one another, to listen and be heard, to construct and deconstruct within a loving, honest and safe environment.

Friday – Sunday 27th-29th October 2017 inclusive

Little Gayles Retreat in East Sussex


Gayles is a small retreat centre ideally situated in outstanding countryside on the South Downs, five miles from Eastbourne and fifteen miles from Brighton. Excellent train services from the nearby towns that provide direct travel to and from London Victoria, Gatwick, Ashford International, Brighton and others, with regular bus service that conveniently stops beside the entrance.

Gayles is just one-and-a-half hours drive from London.

The environment and ambience at Gayles encourages an open, safe, relaxed and intimate atmosphere that promotes learning and self-development.


In order to keep the cost of the weekend down and to support the overarching theme of community we have chosen a venue with dorm facilities. These lovely, thoughtfully renovated dormitories offer simple, high quality, comfortable and reasonably spacious single-gender accommodation.

The full price for the whole weekend based on dormitory sharing is £395 per person. This includes EVERYTHING – meals, accommodation, the workshops and yoga. This is a one off flat cost and is totally offered on a first come, first served basis.

We have space for 17 wonderful yogis who would like to stay onsite with us and 3 non-residential yogis.

Naomi is the founder, creator and director of ‘Liberate & Elevate’.  I have known and loved Naomi’s work since she taught at Sadhaka yoga centre in 2013-14.

Inspired by the power of community and group energy, Naomi currently teaches busy group classes at some of London’s top studios including triyoga, Indaba Yoga and Union Station Yoga. She is well known for her passionate delivery and powerful ability to hold space for all those present. Her aim has remained unchanged over 12 years of teaching – to create a safe and nurturing dynamic where each individual is able to plug into the presenting current of energy. Although in love with playfulness and creativity, she is extremely interested in form, function and mindful movement, focusing on strong and controlled transitions between the postures so that every moment is felt, recognised and processed. Her background training with Itzhak Helman in Thai Yoga massage informs the hands on assists and adjustments she offers in class and she now teaches these on teacher training courses in London.
