Yoga Retreat

Yoga Retreat

Saturday 10:00 - 15:00 & Sunday 10:00 - 15:00

New to Walworth Garden, Ella White presents 'Elemental Fundamentals'; An introduction to Yoga guided by a journey through the elements. 

Join Ella and journey through the elements using gentle body and breath work, creative visualisations and meditations to dive deep into our human experience, supported by the beautiful surrounds of Walworth Garden on this unique, urban mini-retreat in our London town. 

Starting with earth as our foundation, we will begin the practice and exploration of yoga (union) as experienced through our connection to earth as the basic force of creation.

We then move to the element of water, how is it felt both within and around us? What are we able to 'flow with' in life? Where is our resistance, and how can we ease into it?


Beyond water, we will stoke the inner fires of our passion as we travel into the more dynamic element of fire. What ignites us? How can we learn to transmute our anger into passion and our impatience into acceptance?

Air then becomes the vehicle of flight to deepen our elemental experience through the power of a yogic approach, and practice. What fills our sails and blows us forward into better connection with both the natural world, and our own inner landscape? How can the element of air be harnessed to heal and inspire us in our day-to-day lives? 

Beyond this, and all becomes oh so subtle! Ether is our final destination... can this element actually be experienced within a human body? In fact, what even is it? Can we tap into the force of sonic spaciousness?

Having gardened both professionally and personally for over 40 years, Oli will be guiding you through planning and design to fruition. From understanding the potential of your site to the practical steps you might take to see it actually take shape and all the challenges you might encounter on the way.

Oli has successfully created countless urban gardens and guided clients to make the most appropriate decisions. He brings a breadth of knowledge and experience that will encourage you to consider your next steps when planning your own green space.

Whether you have just started creating your space or are in the middle of something exciting, join this workshop to energise and radicalise your thinking!

Areas that will be considered during this two day workshop will be:

  • The particularities of urban gardening - The Precious Space
  • Developing your own style - planting, 1950s suburbia

Friday 18:00 - 21:00 & Saturday 10:00 - 17:00

Your whole being wants you to be well, happy and healthy! Every cell is alive and trying to get you to that healthy balanced place.

This unfolding requires deliberate attention and focus but allowing this inner process to unfold gives you the ability to direct your life more easily.

“Focusing” was developed through extensive research by Eugene Gendlin and colleagues.  
In this workshop you will learn the basic practice of Focusing and some simple ways of incorporating it into your life. It will help you become more in touch with your core self and open to the possibilities of life fully lived.

Yoga Retreat

Yoga Retreat

Saturday 10:00 - 15:00 & Sunday 10:00 - 15:00

New to Walworth Garden, Ella White presents 'Elemental Fundamentals'; An introduction to Yoga guided by a journey through the elements. 

Join Ella and journey through the elements using gentle body and breath work, creative visualisations and meditations to dive deep into our human experience, supported by the beautiful surrounds of Walworth Garden on this unique, urban mini-retreat in our London town. 

Starting with earth as our foundation, we will begin the practice and exploration of yoga (union) as experienced through our connection to earth as the basic force of creation.


We then move to the element of water, how is it felt both within and around us? What are we able to 'flow with' in life? Where is our resistance, and how can we ease into it?


Beyond water, we will stoke the inner fires of our passion as we travel into the more dynamic element of fire. What ignites us? How can we learn to transmute our anger into passion and our impatience into acceptance?

Air then becomes the vehicle of flight to deepen our elemental experience through the power of a yogic approach, and practice. What fills our sails and blows us forward into better connection with both the natural world, and our own inner landscape? How can the element of air be harnessed to heal and inspire us in our day-to-day lives? 

Beyond this, and all becomes oh so subtle! Ether is our final destination... can this element actually be experienced within a human body? In fact, what even is it? Can we tap into the force of sonic spaciousness?
