Yoga & Meditation
Let Tresco's blend of yogic practice and island escapism calm your mind and restore positivity and relaxation...
Our island yogi Gem Hansen guides a range of yoga practice and meditation on Tresco with private and group classes throughout the year.
When the weather is fine, classes take place in various inimitable island locations, from Appletree Bay's white sands to the Abbey Garden's subtropical splendour.
At other times, classes take place in the Flying Boat Studio - this light, bright space overlooks New Grimsby sound and Bryher beyond and is an ideal location to lose yourself as you find your flow.
As well as group classes, private tuition is also available - please get in touch with Gem to discuss your requirements.
Year round yoga with islander Gem
Islander Gem Hansen offers Yoga classes and private tuition throughout the year.
During the main season, from April to October, classes take place several days a week in various incredible island locations. In the summer months, this includes Gem's awakening Yoga in the Abbey Garden on Friday mornings and Slow and Vinyasa Flow in the Flying Boat Studio overlooking Tresco Channel.
Through the winter months, private tuition is available on request, meaning classes can be completely tailored to allow you to find your flow according to your experience.

Summer Yoga with Esmeé
Professional dancer and 800hr Yoga & Meditation teacher Esmée joins us in the summer months and shares the yogic teachings that help us find our flow...
