“make a real difference to the people I support”


Lilley is a clear, compelling and inspiring teacher. She knows her stuff so deeply because she’s been living it for years. I feel like I’m at the start of a journey that will make a real difference to the people I support. I’m leaving this course feeling excited, inspired and motivated.

“inspired me to think analytically”


Lilley is a leader in her field. She’s right up there – at the top! The knowledge she has shared is inspirational. This course was so practical and so valuable. This course has inspired me to think analytically about how to plan a yoga business – not just let it evolve without structure.

As a bloke, I was a bit skeptical to try yoga, but after my first lesson those thoughts vanished. It’s brilliant.

For me, each Monday you bring an hour’s pleasure (and much needed  exercise) and such a ray of Sunshine too!

“a sense of community”

  I always love the insight and knowledge you share.  You have a joyful and patient perspective in a very confusing daily routine for me. The thing above all that Peacock Tree yoga has given me is a sense of community, knowing that I gain insights from you and being able to connect to others in the world outside of my family and immediate friends.

“stepping out of the maelstrom”


Doing yoga with you is like stepping out of the maelstrom and having some tranquillity, not having to think about it all for an hour. It’s refreshing and revitalising.

“I am getting physically stronger”


I am really enjoying my Monday morning session and definitely feel that I am getting physically stronger.  Throughout this unprecedented time, being able to share the yoga practice with others on Zoom has been so positive.  I find Lilley quite inspirational in her teaching.

“lovely energy from everyone”


Peacock Tree has been such a huge part of my up and down journey of life back in York over the last 11 years. I love that there is a large and growing Peacock Tree alumni out there and the warmth of all the students who join is the same. I felt so welcomed at the workshop yesterday by current students and teachers, as a person new to them. There was a lovely energy from everyone in the room and this is a constant of Peacock Tree.

I have just had the most wonderful inspirational morning. The spring workshop was so uplifting and thought provoking. Lilley was, as always, so motivational.
