The Love and Joy of Movement and Stillness

Welcome to this website, which will give you a taste of  James Jewell’s unique yoga based movement and stillness teaching style. Here you will find a selection of retreats/holidays that are offered for 2014, and that have been attracting people  from around the world for over the last 15 years, the vast majority returning again and again. Scroll down a bit to read a mail sent after the last course, that expresses the spirit and essence of these times together. Read more of what other participants  have shared and maybe peruse through some pictures and other comments from our last 9 day retreat held on the beautiful Kenyan island of Lamu in November. This year, due to family reasons, the weekly retreats will be offered closer by, here in Andalucia, Spain.

Also you can find out about local weekly and individual classes  held around here on this Andalucian coast.

Just Click on any of the photos to read more……….Enjoy!!!

“In the ten years I have been practicing yoga I have tried different yoga styles. I have enjoyed some more than others and sometimes yoga instructors focus on some aspects of yoga more than others. What I really enjoyed about James’s classes from the very beginning was how they always seem to have a balance in terms of flow, challenge, relaxation and fun. We took class twice a day for a week, which unfortunately I do not do very often, so I thought I might feel achy, but my body just felt increasingly capable and aware. We were a diverse group in terms of yoga background and James was always able to sense what the group needed in every session and somehow give everyone what they needed at that time.”  Christian, New York/Mexico

An enlightening  poem I have been sharing on our courses this year, from Ian Adams, with whom I work on their Stillpoint retreats in the UK. It says it all…..

In this stillness ©Ian Adams ‘Running Over Rocks’ (Canterbury Press) 2013

In this stillness

I discover so much noise.

Most of it is mine -

a box of jagged lines

a teeming tangle of connections

and disconnections, a snarl of anxieties

a barely tethered storm fed

by fears and wounds I thought long bled dry.

But I need to remain here on this mat……..
