What to bring:
We advise wearing comfortable clothes and footwear as we will be doing some dancing and movement. If you have a Yogamat then please also bring this. Please also bring a floaty scarf and your favourite notebook.

To book your place on one or more of the retreats please book online at https://www.shuttleworth.org/events/. There is no need to worry about cancellation because if Covid rules mean that we cannot meet in person, we will simply transfer our course to Zoom and run all elements online-except, of course, for eating lunch and eating the delicious snacks.
