Enjoy an autumn weekend relaxing and meditating with BE Yoga Retreats. This retreat is carefully planned to create a unique experience for you. From the schedule to the menu, and everything in between, the program is packed with yoga classes, workshops, and meditation sessions that will be delivered in a brand new classroom built of recycled materials and with beautiful countryside views.
Paddington Farm is a charitable trust and a social enterprise, located on a 43-acre organic farm situated at the foot of the famous Glastonbury Tor, in Somerset. Just a 20-minute walk from the town center, the farm offers all the delights of escaping to the countryside with the chance to enjoy some of that unique Glastonbury charm.
During your stay, you may be accommodated in the farmhouse and the adjacent longhouse. Dormitory style rooms, as well as smaller shared rooms and private rooms are available. The accommodation is basic but comfortable and enjoys a beautiful roaring fire in the communal lounge and dining area.
Often, you will find yourself rushing around trying to fit too many things into your life, leaving little time to devote to your own well-being. A yoga retreat gives you the opportunity to step back from your busy life, reflect, and let go of tension and anxiety, as well as to help you physically tone and strengthen your body.
There are many different forms of yoga but they all descend from one tradition, Hatha yoga. Hatha meaning sun and moon, or opposing energy, and yoga meaning to unite. Yoga ultimately brings balance, it unites minds and bodies so that you will feel whole and complete.
