I am delighted to be running our popular Urban Retreat Day. A day of yoga, self-care, delicious food and connecting with like-minded individuals in a safe, judgement-free space.
I will have an array of techniques on the day to help keep you centred and relaxed on your day retreat.
The Day will start with a gentle Body Positive Vinyasa Yoga flow to get everyone warmed up and into the spirit of the day.
A chance to delve deeper into your practice, discover techniques for dealing with stress and anxiety.
A lovely light buffet lunch will also be provided.
A talk about self-love and self-acceptance – helping to build body self-confidence.
We will finish with a relaxing guided meditation.
This Urban Retreat is open to everyone regardless of your experience, age size, body or ethnicty. It’s a wonderful day of healing and rejuvenation for everyone.
Come along and have fun and be inspired.
Looking forward to seeing you!
“I have just returned from CurveSome’s yoga retreat. The venue was amazing as is the teacher, Donna Noble. I am a newbie at yoga and the progress I have made over the last 6 months is a testament to Donna’s patience, experience and her ability to make a plus size woman feel that their size is not a limiter. Her classes are fun and thought-provoking. As she says enjoy the (yoga) journey and I have thus far. Thank you so much.”
“Donna’s Yoga retreat was incredible, being new to Yoga I felt welcomed and encouraged by Donna. She adopts a different approach for each individual, teaching you different practices for each yoga pose to suit you. I feel a stronger connection with my physical body as a result. Donna provides a warm, positive, uplifting style of teaching which has left me with an addiction for Yoga! I’ve left the retreat feeling calm, peaceful and mentally and physically stronger and would recommend Donna to everyone!”
“I never knew just how much one could be inspired by listening to you speak of your passion for Yoga and Mindfulness – love that word. I love to be inspired and you did just that for me. You speak with an eloquence that is both inviting and embracing. You make me want to explore the vast, almost unknown or rarely heard of benefits of Yoga and all that it can do to benefit our lives in a healthy and positive way. I will definitely be looking to join your Curvesomeyoga group and classes. Love you for sharing your gift and wisdom. Blessings and More Love.”

“I cannot recommend Donna enough!
Working with Donna I have experienced a huge shift in my ability to quiet my mind and get in touch with the wisdom I have in my soul that is my truth.
Donna has held space for me and pointed me back to this wisdom when I have gotten lost in my thoughts and felt I had lost my way. She showed me I am always ok, and that wisdom is always there.
Donna has a beautiful, gentle way of creating a space for honest sharing and self-reflection that allowed me to show up in my truth and share my experience. She listens and helps you return to your own truth and points you to your own sense of knowing.
Working with Donna I truly felt supported which allowed me to continue to ask questions and to love myself again in a way that has opened my thinking in a way I can see possibilities opening up in so many areas of my life.”
“Donna has been a powerful speaker to help people learn more about diversity in the health and wellbeing industry. From examining the importance of language to the intersection of yoga and race, Donna created a brave and affirming space for everyone to examine their own biases, ask questions and discuss how to teach diverse populations.“
“When I started my coaching journey, it would be fair to say that I already had some goals, but I was stuck and starting to panic. Donna’s advice and coaching expertise came just at the right time – she has helped me gain a better understanding of my life as well as the journey I would like to take, and I am now clearer not just about my career, but my personal aspirations too. On top of that, I simply feel more relaxed. Donna has been a guiding star in the sky as I came to some powerful realisations, and I can’t thank her enough.”
“Donna facilitated a ‘Nourishing Movement’ masterclass for my membership group in July 2020. Nearly 2 years later the wisdom Donna shared continues to serve the people that attended the workshop.
From Donna’s own inspiring story to dispelling myths about health and mindful movement. Donna was able to help us move away from using exercise as a means of correction and improvement to understanding mindful movement as a means of loving yourself from the inside out.
Donna’s phrase, “Move your body because you love it, not because you hate it” lives inside my body and guides my movement.
I would have Donna facilitate workshops for my company over and over again. She is a relatable, compassionate, knowledgeable and fun expert. I HIGHLY recommend.”

“Donna led her Body Positive Workshop for Yoga Teachers for our team of teachers at MoreYoga and it was absolutely fantastic, we have had nothing but positive feedback and would highly recommend this workshop to all Yoga Teachers who are looking to build on their teaching skills, make their classes more inclusive and be more aware of the language they are using and how this can impact their students. Donna delivers her workshops with humour, passion and energy that keeps it engaging and fun whilst also being very informative. Donna’s journey and work is an inspiration to us all! Thank you Donna, from the team at MoreYoga x“

“My 12 weeks learning from Donna was invaluable. This course offered so much more than I was expecting, from learning how to effectively use our social media platforms for marketing purposes, to setting boundaries & learning the value of our time & energy as teachers.
We learned what it meant to be truly inclusive teachers by breaking down various asanas to make them accessible for all bodies & how the power of language can either heal or harm.
Donna empowered us as teachers to speak out about the disparities within the wellness & fitness industry & support those actioning change to create a diverse space where everyone feels seen, heard & represented.
The weekly sessions were a safe space where we could openly discuss our experiences & learn from each other. We were gently nudged out of our comfort zones & had our perspectives of ‘inclusive teaching’ challenged in order to help us grow & embrace what it really means to be an inclusive yoga teacher.
I feel extremely grateful for this time to learn, grow & find a new sense of purpose & I can’t thank Donna enough for facilitating this.”
