Lindisfarne 2023

Not long to go now!

We can’t wait to be back at the very wonderful and locally focused Lindisfarne Festival.

The first time I went to the festival I taught a partner yoga class in a big empty tent and now we run a comprehensive healing area which fills the tent with teachings, people, sounds, colours, flavours and much more!

The Healing Area comprises of one main tent, which opens early in the morning with well-being workshops back-to-back until 7pm. Within this tent our 7pm our alternative stage opens with electronic bears and heavenly harmonies right through till 4am! Yes till 4am!

Between about 9am and 2am we also open a small, very friendly café which serves a selection of cakes, cold pastries, and teas.

In the outside spaces of the healing area, you can receive one to one therapies with practitioners that bring with them an abundance of experience and healing.
