My wife and I attended the recent Yoga & Nutrition retreat at Rossie Ochil House and it was a wonderful experience.Esme is very passionate about yoga and was very helpful and patient even with an 'inflexible' novice such as myself. All of the sessions were varied and thoroughly enjoyable with Esme taking time to go round offering advice and help to all of the group.Kate was incredibly knowlegeable regarding the nutrition side of things and put together some fantastic dishes for us to enjoy over the weekend (not a sausage buttie in sight). Kate explained the ingredients that made up each dish as well as describing their benefits to you. On top of that we also had a couple of recipes demonstrated that were very easy to make.The accommodation was also excellent with lovely, big rooms and lots of space in the beautiful grounds to find some quiet time.Finally, a big thank you to all of the ladies on the retreat. I was the only bloke in attendance but did not feel like the odd one out at any time.A great weekend.
I have been going to Esme's yoga classes for over 5 years and have been on a number of her Scottish retreats but the yoga retreat at MasQi, near Alicante, Spain superseded them all. Lovely, very comfortable, hotel hosted by Sonia and her staff who couldn't do enough for you and indeed do and teach yoga themselves. Esme puts a huge amount of thought and planning into all her classes and there are never any two the same. Not only were there 2 yoga classes a day, there was meditation, Chakra cleansing (new to me but one of my favourite workshops), Bach flowers workshop, learning about Microbiotic food/diet etc but to name a few. Nothing compulsory to attend but all were fun and opened my mind to other activities and philosophies. Will definitely go on another yoga retreat at MasQi with Esme - perfect combination of location and yoga!
I had never done a yoga class with Esme before the retreat she ran at MasQi in Spain in July. Esme is a treasure. She puts a lot of thought and planning in to every class which means that each is unique. I felt very strong and healthy by the end of our retreat thanks to Esme's attention to detail and her energy. I will be going back next year! Esme is a firecracker of energy combined with a warm heart. I would recommend the retreat experience without hesitation.
I have just returned from 5 nights at the Energy House near Valencia. Our Yoga Retreat was organised and hosted by Esme. What a fantastic venue in the mountains. However the best part was the Yoga - she promised we would feel stronger by the end of the week and we did - 2 classes at day which were completely different.. I also felt very calm as we also did meditation, joined a cookery class and learnt about alternative remedies. Esme really looked after us all - nothing was too much trouble. I strongly recommend her Yoga retreats (we will be back for more).
I started doing yoga with Esme 5 years ago and the moment I met her I knew I didn’t want to have a different yoga teacher! She’s dynamic and encouraging but also knows how to make all of us improve! I certainly look forward to each of my yoga classes on Wednesdays!I love yoga so much that I did my first yoga and nutrition retreat ever with Esme last October. What was not to like about this weekend experience? The house in which we stayed was beautiful and comfortable. The food was amazing and we had time to do yoga, some meditation as well as to wonder around! It was a great way of disconnecting from everything and I came back home feeling energised and relaxed! I would totally recommend it
Esme is a great teacher - incredibly motivating and committed to help everyone in class across different abilities get the most out of their practice. Before joining her, I would try the occasional taster here and there without getting "into it". Now I am looking forward to her practice all week and am noticing how my strength, balance and confidence have grown over only few months. Thank you Esme!
Reiki has helped me in only two sessions. I suffer from a severe mental health illness and take heavily sedating medication each day. It is difficult for me to function on day to day life. When I first started reiki I didn't know how I could feel better from it. After the first session I didn't feel the miraculous happiness I thought I would but the day after, the day after that and then the day after after that... things started to get better in a way that I felt balanced - not superficial happiness but in the middle where I felt content. Thank you, Esme.
Yoga with Esme is always challenging but great fun, she radiates positivity which lifts you no matter how bad you were feeling. I have been on three of her retreats which all have been an amazing experience and I have met some fantastic people.
I love Esme's Wednesday evening beginners' class! She is a brilliant and really encouraging teacher. I love the way she demonstrates poses and also checks students' poses and provides both group and individual feedback. Most of all I love her enthusiasm - it is infectious and makes me want to learn more! Thank you Esme. Melanie
Yoga with Esme is life changing. She works you hard but you feel the benefits. The health and energy boost felt by attending her classes is invaluable. Esme is a joy to do yoga with - her positivity and enthusiasm is inspiring.
I attend Esme's classes which rejuvenate and relax you. I have been involved with a couple of her retreats which are fabulous - combining relaxation, strengthening and increasing flexibility with beautiful settings, great food and advice on lifestyle and nutrition leaving you feeling renewed. Esme herself is wonderfully encouraging.
Esme is a joyous and welcoming teacher, who is intent on building your confidence in poses that you never thought you could do. I always leave her sessions on a natural high.
Couldn't agree more with everyone's comments Esme is the cats whiskers
Love Esme's classes. I leave the class with a very positive mind and less aches. I would recommend her to anyone.
