Back in 2002 when Jonathon and I named our yoga retreat 'Kaliyoga', we thought nothing of it... until we saw a painting of Kali, the sword-wielding multi-handed goddess, trampling nonchalantly on Lord Shiva, god of gods. What dreadful power had we invoked...?
Hello. My name is Rosie. I'm the co-founder of Kaliyoga Retreats.
I’d like to share with you the reasons why I love walking so much.

The media is clobbering us with 24/7 misery... do horror stories cause copy-cat behaviour and add to stress-related depression?
I just had the most amazing experience.
Back in January we first met 37-year-old midwife Louise Kayles. For years she has lived with a crippling self-doubt about every aspect of her appearance.

A letter from one of our lovely managers in France, some full moon magic and a lot of love.

Hello everyone. Rosie here again, co-founder of Kaliyoga.
I find it too easy to let my yoga routine slip for a week or two over Christmas. It’s just too tempting to leave my mat in the cupboard, especially if I’ve got that sluggish feeling from eating too many mince pies.

How to survive the Christmas Holidays
My name is Rosie and I am the co-founder of Kaliyoga Retreat.
12 years ago I quit my tepid London life and eloped to Spain with fellow yoga teacher Jonathon (‘Jonji’) where we created what we hoped would become the best-loved yoga retreat centre in Europe.
So without further ado I’d like to share with you some of the background to Kaliyoga’s humble beginnings, in the hope that it may inspire you to pursue your dreams until they are realized, even if the road ahead may be mined with obstacles.
