Jinny Light Sunday Times Travel Journalist kindly wrote when attending a private retreat with Suzanne at Magna Yoga Sanctuary....

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for hosting Sophie and I this weekend. It was a wonderful experience doing yoga classes at the Magna Yoga Sanctuary - we left feeling utterly relaxed and rejuvenated -
My article is live now on the new thetimes.co.uk website:"

Jinny also kindly added. in her article in the Sunday Times.....

"The Magna Yoga Sanctuary in Fontmell Magna opened in the spring and is part community project, part enterprise. It is owned by Suzanne Thompson, who painstakingly restored the former chapel and school with her husband and has created an extraordinary retreat.

The cavernous chapel makes for an inspiring yoga room with light streaming in through vast long windows on two sides and the room scattered with cushions, candles on candelabra, eastern figurines and flowers.

Suzanne’s Sivananda style yoga is similar to Hatha yoga, with a series of positions to work through, but with a strong focus on the meditative side. Even novices to yoga could not fail to find some spiritual healing in Suzanne’s soft voice and pitch-perfect chanting that is accentuated by the great hall’s wonderful acoustics.

We had two afternoon sessions during the weekend and left feeling gently stretched, utterly relaxed and serene."
