Butley Priory Autumnal Retreat with Jock Orton – 3rd-5th November 2017

Weekend Retreat in Butley Priory, Suffolk with Jock


Jock is being hosted by Katherine and Jodie – The Retreat Sisters – at the beautiful Butley Priory in Suffolk for an Autumnal Retreat. Jock will be teaching an Ashtanga weekend consisting of morning Mysore sessions and afternoon workshops looking helping you go deeper into your practice, not just on a physical level but on an intellectual, emotional and spiritual level.

This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced students alike, providing a safe and nurturing space to become familiar with your own body, understand how it moves and it’s innate potential. Jock’s particular interest is in alignment, anatomy and adjustment and he is able to support students to go much deeper into their practice by giving them precise instruction that is tailored to your individual needs. He has many years of experience in supporting himself through yoga to recover from serious injury and is able to modify the practice to suit each person’s needs.

About Jock

Jock has been teaching since 2003 and co-founded Lime House Yoga in Cornwall with his partner Emma. His journey to yoga came after falling down a mountain snowboarding in 2000, breaking his back in four places and shattering his collarbone. After numerous unsuccessful operations he began a regular yoga practice that enabled him to heal from his injuries and astonished the medical practitioners who had tried and failed to put him back together!

He went on to train with Bridget Woods-Kramer, a world-renowned Anusara teacher with whom he spent six years studying and teaching. In the last three years his personal practice has moved towards Ashtanga and he’s undertaken teacher trainings with David Swenson and Manju Jois, whom he recently assisted at Stillpoint Yoga in London. His primary teacher and friend is John Scott, with whom he has undertaken Level 2 Ashtanga teacher training and practices regularly. Jock is one of the few teachers to receive the 500hr certification from John Scott Yoga to teach the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga.

He has developed a style that is physically challenging with attention to posture and alignment and above all, playful. His experience has taught him to cherish the physical practice of yoga, but it is the connection between mind and body that inspires his practice.
