Program

During this retreat, you will have the opportunity to enjoy yoga classes twice a day, mindfulness practices each day, walking on Saturday and Sunday. There will be some free time for you to relax, swim, or visit Cromford Mills and book shop. Yoga will be practiced outside as much as possible. Evening will be spent with relaxations, walks, or candle gazing.

Asana classes

The yoga positions termed asanas, will help you to tone, stretch, develop flexibility, and build up strength in your body. By concentrating on the posture, the mind becomes quiet, the breath becomes slow, and self-awareness is developed. Yoga is non-competitive and is suitable for all.

If you are suffering any pain or health conditions please let the instructors know since alternative postures and modifications can be used. Within the classes, you will bring attention to the breath, to chakras, chanting, and wonderful flowing salutations often practiced with yogic music.

Yogic breath sessions

Yogic breathing techniques will help you to slow the activity of the mind as the slow smooth breathing makes the mind calm. This practice is both relaxing and revitalizing to the whole body and reduces stress. You will be taught various breathing techniques and after gaining more control of the breath, you will move onto pranayama and more advanced work. The use of these techniques can have a deep positive effect on your health.

Relaxation techniques

Specific techniques will be taught to totally relax the body and mind allowing the body to absorb the work that has taken place. Relaxation also brings about a feeling of well-being and contentment that can be taken into your daily life. Yoga Nidra brings an intense feeling of stillness to the mind and body and is very healing.

Yoga philosophy will also be touched on within the lessons to help you to highlight the link between mind, breath and body, and to develop awareness of the self and inner guidance.

Included excursions

Guided walk on Saturday and Sunday.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held at the Willersley Castle Hotel in Derbyshire, UK. The construction of Willersley Castle began in 1790 commissioned by Sir Richard Arkwright, the great industrialist who developed the water frame which revolutionized the cotton milling industry in this country and all around the world. In 1791 a fire broke out causing severe damage to part of the interior of the castle, a major setback in construction.

The damage was repaired, but sadly Arkwright died in 1792 before completion of the building. His son, also named Richard, moved into Willersley Castle with his family in 1796 and the family continued to live there until 1922. Located at the beginning of the Peak District, it offers fabulous views, walks, and location in the historic village of Cromford, near Matlock Bath.
