why you need to do this retreat:


In today's fast-paced, high-stress world, mindfulness practices have become increasingly important for maintaining both mental and physical health.

Without exception, all people practicing mindfulness skills will gain the following advantages:

1. Cortisol Control


From a biological perspective, mindfulness has been shown to have numerous benefits. It can help reduce cortisol levels, our primary stress hormone, which in turn can lower cholesterol and protect our mitochondria from stress-induced dysfunction.

2. Cellular Repair


Mindfulness practices have also been linked to improved immune function, reduced inflammation, and enhanced cellular repair mechanisms.

3. Resilience


By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, mindfulness helps counteract the constant "fight or flight" state many people experience in modern life, allowing for better overall physiological balance and resilience.

4. Our Interior Cellular Biology


The biological effects of mindfulness, combined with the mental clarity and emotional regulation that mindfulness promotes, make it a valuable tool for navigating the challenges of our hectic world and maintaining optimal health.  

We know that our mental and physical health is dependent upon our cellular health and it's functionality.

Scientific research demonstrates that regular mindfulness practice can significantly reduce stress, improve cognitive function, enhance emotional regulation, and boost physical health by positively impacting various biological processes, including mitochondrial function, immune response, and cellular aging, potentially leading to increased longevity and improved quality of life.

Experience a transformative journey to re-align and re-balance all seven major chakras in the mystical heart of Glastonbury.


1. Measurable Results


While some aspects may seem unusual, studies show meditation practices like kundalini yoga can measurably reduce stress hormones and inflammation in the body.

These are objective biological effects, not just placebo.

2.  Stability and Emotional Regulation


When done properly under guidance, kundalini is generally safe. Start slowly and listen to your body. Research shows it can actually improve mental stability and emotional regulation over time.

Our unique Kundalini retreat, led by Debi, qualified at Level 3 CPD in Kundalini teaching and a respected mindfulness and fitness teacher, offers a blend of ancient wisdom and modern techniques.

3. The skill of listening to your body


Discover profound inner harmony through powerful sessions, surrounded by the energy of Glastonbury's mysticism.

With generous breaks to explore the vibrant high street, unwind in the tranquil zen forest, climb the nearby world famous Tor or indulge in the treasures of the unique landscape, this workshop provide a holistic experience like no other.

4.  Learn that spirituality is different to religion


Kundalini doesn't conflict with any religion. It's a set of physical and breathing exercises, like other forms of yoga.

Studies show it can enhance spiritual experiences for people of all faiths, including Christians.

Embrace the opportunity to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul, and embrace a new level of self-awareness and well-being.

Scientific evidence points to real health benefits from kundalini, including lowered blood pressure, improved brain function, and reduced anxiety. While powerful, when practiced responsibly it's a tool for enhancing wellbeing, not a threat.

more on kundalini & mindfulness



Kundalini is a powerful form of yoga that focuses on awakening the dormant energy within you. By practicing Kundalini, you can tap into your inner potential, experience heightened awareness, and unlock a deep sense of vitality and purpose. It offers a transformative journey that connects your mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to experience profound personal growth and self-discovery. 



Chakras are energy centers within your body that correspond to different aspects of your being. By understanding and working with your chakras, you can achieve a harmonious flow of energy, leading to improved physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Balancing your chakras through Kundalini practice can help you release blockages, enhance your vitality, and experience a greater sense of balance and alignment in your life.  



Re-balancing refers to the process of restoring harmony and equilibrium within yourself. Through Kundalini practice, you can release stress, tension, and negative emotions, allowing your energy to flow freely. Re-balancing your mind, body, and spirit can lead to increased clarity, inner peace, and a renewed sense of purpose. It empowers you to let go of what no longer serves you and embrace a more balanced and fulfilling life.  



Attending the Kundalini workshop offers you a unique opportunity for personal transformation and growth. By participating, you will embark on a journey of self-discovery, unlocking your true potential and experiencing a profound shift in your life. You will learn powerful techniques to manage stress, increase vitality, and cultivate a deep connection with yourself. This workshop acts as a bridge, guiding you from where you are now to where you aspire to be - living a life filled with purpose, joy, and inner fulfillment.  



Kundalini practices have been found to increase BDNF protein levels in the brain which are associated with improved mood regulation, and protection against diseases such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and MS.

Kundalini also increases production of T-cells which help prevent cancer and enhances other immune responses.

Kundalini has been found to improve body positivity and self-acceptance, which may help treat eating disorders.

Kundalini has been found to increase the size of the hippocampus in older adults, which is associated with improved memory and other brain functions.

Kundalini has been shown to be effective in increasing emotional functioning, including less depression, anxiety, and stress, and improved mood, sleep, and resilience.

Kundalini practices have been shown to regulate the ego which is the part of us that is responsible for our sense of self-identity and emotions, often judging ourselves and comparing ourselves to others. Egoic thinking is closely tied to the DMN (Default Mode Network) which when transcended, can create a sense of unity, interconnection, expanded awareness, self-regulation and a diminished sense of selfishness.

The true power of kundalini


Here is a story from one of Debi's kundalini students, who wishes to remain  anonymous due to the personal nature of her experiences.

"I was always in control – a coper. Then I broke. Really broke, everything just overwhelmed me and I was drowning. Guilt also consumed me, all these people I was letting down and all control was gone. I couldn’t stop crying, sleeping and reliving vividly all the events I had buried deep down. The CBT I always relied on couldn’t be accessed by my mind – nothing made sense anymore.

Debi, always on the same wavelength as me, reached out – the first thing she did was take me into the woods in the rain and told me it was ok.

I am a real sceptic with all of this “hippy stuff” and had no idea what a chakra was.

I cried a lot. She then introduced me to Kundalini Yoga – I am a real sceptic with all of this “hippy stuff” and had no idea what a chakra was. I needed to find a way out of how I was feeling so gave it a go.

More than anything else, the techniques she taught me, gave me the sense of peace and realisation that it was ok not to be ok and it was ok to put myself first (I am still working on this bit!!).  Just taking time out in every day to rest, clear my mind and re-set.

I had the most empowering feeling and really odd reactions that can’t be explained

I can’t explain the chakras – you will have to try it yourself, but with each one, even as a cynic I had the most empowering feeling and really odd reactions that can’t be explained but made sense as they related to the chakras I was unblocking.

I still have a long way to go, but now I breathe, I stop, I tap, I appreciate what I have around me. I need to take each day at a time and I know I will be ok.

When I feel ready to face the world again, I will use all the techniques I have learnt to stop and take time out for me."

Aly's Re-boot


I’d never heard of Kundalini when Debi suggested I should try it - nor had I any idea what a chakra was.

The workshop in Glastonbury was so well organised. It was split into 4 parts. Dutch gave us a scientific overview of each chakra and then Debbi took us through the Kundalini yoga moves.

The whole experience enabled me to de-stress, reboot and relax using the breathing techniques and music. By the end of the day I felt re energised and at peace with myself.

The vegan food was delicious and Debbi’s carrot cake was to die for.


Nic's enlightenment


Not knowing what Kundalini was about, I was keen to explore it,  and how thankful I was, I had this opportunity to do so.

Deb and Dutch are a fantastic team, making us all feel very welcome.

The workshop was so enlightening and opened my eyes to really thinking about everything we do in all parts of our daily lives.

In the days after the workshop, I would remember the quotes/statements from deb and Dutch, and really think about self improvement within my personal and professional environment.

I am going to continue to practice what I learnt from the workshop and pass my knowledge to family and friends.


Ali's Exploration


I went to a Kundalini chakra workshop in the White Rabbit in Glastonbury (Nov 4th 2023).  We covered the root, sacral, solar plexus and heart chakras.  This was a wonderful experience for the whole day and well worth it .

Debi delivers a very safe space for you to explore these areas and is willing to help you if you need further guidance or support.

The way the day is yet out also gives you time to process and take breaks to look around this wonderful town. The food provided is out of this world.   I would recommend this experience to anybody that is willing to do some work on themselves but really I believe everybody should be doing this. 


Bronwen's Magical Day


The Kundalini  Day Workshop - This was an exceptional experience that only the unique relationship of Debi and Dutch could make happen. The whole day in Glastonbury was magical with Debi taking us through the kundalini moves and Dutch blessing us with his wonderful cooking (not forgetting Debi’s cake) and scientific knowledge that validates the Kundalini ethos and practice. Combined with the music, we were all transported into a wonderful experience. There were ample breaks, giving us the opportunity to meet new people in an intimate and exceptionally clean location. Bring on the next one!


 Sarah's Discoveries


What a wonderful day. This was my first experience of Kundalini and also of a yoga workshop. I went along with a close friend and I met some amazing people - by mid-morning we were all getting to know each other and eating some delicious food. Debi looked after us all through the day to make sure we went at our own pace. The music was perfect, and I left feeling I had made new friends and with a new love of Kundalini - I recommend this fabulous day to yoga lovers old and new.




Kundalini was completely new to me, but I’m always up for a new experience and trying different forms of exercise and meditation. Obviously the fact that Debbie was to deliver the course was a strong motivation to join in. On the day because she is such an enthusiastic and gifted teacher. So what's not to like! The venue in Glastonbury over a crystal shop was perfect, and provided the ideal peaceful setting. Especially so the lovely little garden to relaxing after each session. We were an all friendly group and all got on really well instantly even though only a few of us had met before. It was a really enjoyable day and I found the breathing exercises, poses and meditation really relaxing. We enjoyed delicious snacks and lunch prepared by Dutch who also gave really interesting introductions to each session. All in all a great day give it a try!


Hannah's Treat Retreat


It was a fascinating learning experience held in a beautiful space where we were guided through the chakra's balancing body, mind and spirit, using breathwork, chants and yoga poses as well as some lovely relaxation.

I never expected to find the experience so joyful and energising. I felt safe in Debi's guidance. It was also lovely to spend time with others enjoying the delicious food prepared for us and relax in the beautiful garden space. It was such a treat to retreat for a day!

I am looking forward to the next class!




I recently joined Debi and Dutch for a kundalini and chakra re-alignment day… What can I say?  I absolutely loved it! During a particularly changing and stressful time I had a chance to learn some new techniques to help de-stress and re-balance. Debi’s knowledge and energy is so beautiful. I also loved to hear how the science fits in with our chakras and Kundalini - thanks Dutch ‘Peach’ 🤣 And the food - just delicious!


MARIkO'S Welbeing


I recently attended THE Kundalini yoga day retreat and it was an incredible experience. Debi, the instructor, exuded boundless energy throughout the whole day which really uplifted my spirits. From the moment I arrived, she made me feel so welcome and relaxed.

The hours flew by as we delved deeper into our practice and explored different techniques. The food that was provided was delicious, it was nourishing for both body and soul.  I also had the pleasure of meeting a lovely group of individuals who shared a similar passion for wellbeing. The setting itself was fabulous (Glastonbury), surrounded by nature's beauty which added to the overall serenity of the retreat. Highly recommended!


 Gill's sinuses & soul


I went to my first Kundalini workshop with an open mind and came away feeling  energised and content.

The White Rabbit was a great venue. Debi and Pete gave us all a very warm welcome.  The group I was with was lovely, and we got to know each other as the day went on.

The day was interspersed with breaks where we spoilt with wonderful food and drinks prepared by Debi and Pete. The whole day was thoroughly enjoyable and meaningful. 

I experienced feelings of emotion in the morning session and I have found my sinuses clearing and my shoulders becoming more relaxed.

I will definitely do this again.  The whole day was very professionally run by Debi and Pete. We were all so very well looked after.  A Big thank you to you both.




I had the pleasure of going to Debi’s very first Kundalini Yoga day in September. I have never done Kundalini before, but I having enjoyed Debi’s Zen Aerobics and moving mindfulness groups for years, I knew the day would be special. I went by myself and was made welcome by Debi, her husband Dutch and the other attendees in a lovely venue in Glastonbury. The day was structured into four sessions with breaks for delicious refreshments and healthy light meals. Each session started with an informative introduction from Debi and Pete giving us an insight into each practice, then we were invited to close our eyes and move with purpose. The day flew by and I left feeling so much better for it. Debi, you are such a warm-hearted soul, thank you for being you.


Jeannie's New Breathwork


I Loved the experience I had on my day session with Debbie learning the art of Kundalini. I found I learnt such a lot about the breathing and relaxing and the effect this has on the body and mind. Debbie was very professional and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend the workshop.


Lynn's strength


Hi, I am aware that the last few years have been traumatic for everyone.  Post covid and retirement combined with bereavement left me with trauma that I wasn’t able to process.

I attended the Chakra workshop in Glastonbury, my experience there was positive, the class was lovely, set out to cater for all levels and abilities of yoga and the meditation with exploration of the set practice was interesting.

I was able to do most of the exercises, either on a chair or the mat provided.  We were well catered for with lovely home made menus of vegetarian food.

Following the class I do feel better and I am allowing my stress and tension to heal.

Many Thanks Debi and Dutch xxx


Sara's awakening


Having practiced Kundalini yoga in the past I was really looking forward to attending this one day retreat in Glastonbury.

It was such a beautiful, joyful day led by the lovely Debi & Pete. They worked so well together, Debi taking us through the moves for the Chakras and Pete providing us with the science behind Kundalini yoga.

It was held in a beautiful space and there were plenty of breaks to enjoy the garden, delicious healthy food and relaxing in the company of everyone on the course. Everyone was so lovely!

By the end of the day I felt spiritually awakened and at ease with myself, and wanting to continue my kundalini yoga practice with the wonderful Debi & Pete.
