YOGA RETREATS & CLASSES FOR ALL BUDGETS & BODIES!
Welcome to my website. Especially if you are looking to start or continue your yoga journey, find a better work life balance, improve your physical health & wellbeing or you’re just curious to dip your toe into the hugely varied world of yoga. I hope that I can offer you something here, whatever your age, ability or budget. Yoga is for everyone whether you’re young or old, bendy or stiff, stressed or relaxed, male, female or transgender. It is not a religion & is open to people of any faith or none. Elisa
Don’t forget yoga is not about touching our toes but enjoying our own unique journey on the way down!
Elisa Williams is a fully accredited West London based yoga teacher with over 30 years experience of practicing. Elisa teaches private & public yoga classes in West London. With husband Dominic, a professional sailor, she also hosts residential yoga, walking & sailing holidays both overseas & in the UK.
UPCOMING RESIDENTIAL YOGA RETREATS with Elisa & Dominic
Retreats with Elisa & Dominic
Elisa & husband Dominic run yoga retreats in some truly wonderful places. Their yoga retreats are the perfect opportunity to try something new, stay in locations chosen for their beautiful scenery, hospitality, climate & locally sourced food. The aim is to create the perfect space where yoga retreat guests can relax, unwind & renew, meet new people & take a break from their everyday lives. Walking & sailing are also features of some of the yoga retreats.
Dominic is an experienced yachtsman with professional experience in skippering yachts & sailing holidays. These additional elements also hold appeal for friends & partners who would like to join a group holiday but are perhaps teetering on the fence about the prospect of attending a full blown yoga retreat!
If anyone is interested in experiencing a sailing holiday but lacks the expertise to charter & sail their own boat please get in touch. We are always happy to organise private bare boat charters at home & abroad.

Yoga is about finding balance not seeking perfection
“Elisa is simply the best, she is an advertisement for yoga proving its not all about doing the most incredible poses. She is as great with beginners as she is with more experienced pupils. I started yoga aged 62 on her yoga holiday to Goa & have been attending classes ever since. I have now been on retreats with her to Turkey, Kerala & Mykonos.
Our one day retreats are a wonderful way of spending more time practicing yoga, relaxing & guided meditation. Enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch followed by a leisurely walk, catch up with old friends & meet new people. They also make great presents for friends & loved ones.
