Dory Walker.
Dory has experienced the true spirit of yoga as transformational practice. She believes in the power of yoga to guide conscious evolution, individually and collectively. Certified to advanced level and teaching full time since 2001, Dory has trained with various yoga schools, amongst them Sivananda (traditional hatha Yoga), Satyananda (yoga nidra and meditation), Khrishnamakarya (Vedic Chant) and Dona Holleman (enlightened asana work), as well as studying yoga therapy with the Biomedical Trust. Dory teaches retreats and teacher training programmes internationally. Through her own practice Dory has discovered that regular practice promotes effective, positive and healthy living and is inspired to help others establish a strong practise in their own lives. She believes strongly in making the yoga (union) adventure joyful, keeping it light and remembering to laugh! Dory teaches classes, courses and private tuition around Bristol, the South West and London. She is a dedicated yogini and mother.

Just two miles from Totnes, Eden Rise provides a beautiful environment for this Sadhana weekend. There are wide views to Dartmoor and access to seven acres extending to the Harbourne River. There are garden and yurt terraces around the barns with a hedgerow walk to a beacon lookout. Beyond is shared with others working the land which takes you through wooded fringes, down to the river and past great trees, with sculptures and shrines along the way; leading to the Santa Rosa labyrinth and the sheep grazing.
