Yoga & Meditation
Let Tresco's blend of yogic practice and island escapism calm your mind and restore positivity and relaxation...
Bryher islander Gem Hansen and Tresco guest teacher Esmée Halliday guide a range of daily yoga practice and meditation on Tresco.
When the weather is right, enjoy outdoor classes in serene island settings. From the clam of yogic practice in the Abbey Garden to energising meditation facing the water's edge, soak up the utter escapism of our private island sanctuary.
Our new Flying Boat Studio offers a calming retreat whatever the weather. Located just a few steps away from Tresco Island Spa, the Studio enjoys stunning views across New Grimsby Harbour to the neighbouring island of Bryher.
Scheduled classes take place most days, with Gem leading sessions during the week and Esmée leading weekend practice. To see the schedule, and to book, please click the links below, where you can also find out more about our teachers and enquire about private tuition.
Both Gem and Esmée combine their own yogic experience and practice to Tresco's inimitable island environment.
Our resident yogi is Bryher islander Gem Hansen, who leads most of our classes as well as many of our yoga retreats throughout the year. Gem aims to create classes that offer a balance of strength and serenity, welcoming beginners and beyond to the mat. Trained in Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin Yoga, Gem was delighted to share her practices with you in 2019 and looks forward to connecting with you again or welcoming you to Tresco in 2020.
Our guest tutor for summer 2020 is Esmée Halliday. With a background in dance, in spring 2020, Esmée undertook a lifechanging trip to the Himalayas and now intertwines yogic practices with her dance, bringing the Vedantic lineage of Yoga to Tresco.
