This is a disclaimer regarding the retreat advertised for July 26-31st 2020, by myself and through

MY - Meditation_Yoga

I, Rebecca (Becky) Howes came up with the name, the credentials for the retreat, and agreed to teach at the retreat to take place 26-31 July 2020. My name was continued to be used to promote the retreat without me being aware that the organiser 'MY - Meditation_Yoga' had made other teaching arrangements. I was not informed either way as to what was going on and how the retreat was going to be conducted by the Organiser - 'MY - Meditation_Yoga'. Anything else promised by the organiser - 'MY - Meditation_Yoga', that was not delivered on the retreat (other than my intension and write up) was not within my control or my idea, ie. Aveduvic cooking class. My ideas including the Name - Transformation Retreat, exploring positive affirmation, the write-up bio
for myself and the yoga classes and vision for the retreat being positive affirmation and intention setting.
I do not give my name or image to be used in further promotions by 'MY - Meditation_Yoga' retreats and in already doing so is fraudulent (from 13 July).

For the record, false information was given about myself. There was no personal/family problem
and I did not leave to join a religious sect/cult.

My intention and duty of care are always to my students and to the events, classes and retreats that
I have arranged/ organised to teach. The priority and position were that I was available for the retreat.

I strongly discourage any students I have taught to attend a retreat organised by 'MY - Meditation_Yoga'.


"I have been going to Becky’s classes for around a year now and she is one of the best teachers I have found in Bristol. The amount of thought and care that has gone into planning her classes is always evident. She balances yang and yin elements of yoga, bringing her students both energy and stillness. She also has a very calming and supportive presence as a teacher, making her students feel at ease. "

"Fantastic Yoga classes, I feel inspired every class I attend! The flow of these classes really do enliven the flow of my energy. Thank you so much Becky for your dedication and guidance."

~ Ana Sanchez

"Becky is a very experienced teacher and this comes across in her classes. She also has a great energy to her - so expect to come out of class feeling great!"

~ Rachael Merrifield

"One sign of a strong instructor is that they make what they do look effortless. Becky fits this description perfectly. She is adept at explaining the most technical details in the plainest of words while providing a relaxed pace for students of all levels to follow. I’ve been attending Sunday morning classes for a while now, and her unhurried delivery and teaching style are well-suited to this most delicate of mornings; easing along from a meditative opening through to more intense, but achievable asana, providing individual support where necessary. She’s clearly very aware of the more subtle, internal mechanics involved (having studied other internal arts, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by certain explanations), as well as the external movements she narrates so well. She emphasises what can be attained not by exertion, but by careful attention to the nuance of body posture and stability, and I have found her tweaks and suggestions quite transformative at times. Thus, a firm recommendation from me!"

~ Susan Merriman

"Becky’s classes gave me the yoga awakening I longed for. I had practiced yoga on and off for some years but Becky’s classes really gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation of the practice. Becky’s gentle guiding tone, calming energy, combined with great Vynyasa flows and  insightful but simply put explanations helped me getting into the practice and feel more connected to it. Bringing in elements of different yoga styles, from yin and yang to fast pace vynyasas and more technical aspects. Becky’s classes are structured in a way that suit me perfectly. Becky is a great communicator and very knowledgeable about the body. Her experience, dedication and love for teaching others comes across in every class."
