If it's style, historic charm and quality that you are looking for then this retreat has it all.... and a wow factor to match. You will be staying in a luxury private or shared twin room with shared or private bathroom according to your choice. The venue is a stunning five-star 19th century converted barn in a rural setting, just two miles from the historic centre of Arundel, within walking distance along the River Arun, with breathtaking views of the Sussex downs.
Each guest room is tastefully designed with comfort and style in mind. With underfloor heating it's a pleasure to stroll around and enjoy everything that Chillout Retreats has to offer.
The lessons are suitable for any ability and will raise your heartbeat and strengthen you from your very core. A perfect way to grow!
The Chillout Retreats team will teach traditional Hatha yoga infused with the fluid Vinyasa flow, which is strong, powerful, and rejuvenating, and covers many of the well known and popular asanas. Yoga teaches you how to relax and restore the own power within your bodies whilst stilling the mind at the same time. You can expect to work strongly and dynamically in the mornings and smoothly, developing a deep sense of calmness in the evening classes.
On this retreat, Chillout Retreats will also be offering a Pilates inspired core strength class which is developed to strengthen your inner core and build up strength from within. Pilates is a wonderful compliment to yoga and is a useful practice to help any lower back problems or spine sensitivities. The lessons are suitable for any ability and will raise your heartbeat and strengthen you from your very core.
By quieting the chattering mind and developing loving kindness, you can really be open to experience what is going on in the present. How much time do you spend thinking about the past or the future without actually living and breathing each precious moment now? After all, you cannot change the past nor predict the future but you can shape your present.
Meditation is now well regarded as a life skill. As you use yoga or Pilates to strengthen and exercise your body, you can use meditation to strengthen and gain control of your brain and mind as it too is a muscle. It is a tool that can help aid concentration, sharpen the senses, and inspire minds. The beauty in even the smallest thing can be appreciated after only a few meditation sessions.
During these chill out retreats, you will learn different meditation techniques and practices that can be used every day, such as the mindfulness of breathing, the Metta Bhavana, and walking meditations. Once you have learnt how to calm the mind, you can meditate anywhere, in the bath, on the tube, or whilst out walking. Even the most active minds need a rest and without too much effort, so much can be achieved.
The West Sussex and Devon retreats offer more countryside and nature trail appeal with gentle walks through the downs and across to lakes in West Susex, or to the Jurrassic coastline in Devon. Walking can help you to feel more open and expansive and this can create the perfectly invigorating exercise, a wonderful complement to the yoga and PIlates sessions.
This weekend yoga retreat is located just five minutes from the magnificent famous castle town of Arundel, West Sussex, United Kingdom. This retreat is a delight for those searching for a little old fashioned charm and character.
All your food is included in the price. All of the dishes are vegetarian. The phrases 'you are what you eat and 'wellness starts from within' pretty much sum up or are philosophy on food and juices on this retreat. Chillout Retreats understands and respects the important role it plays in the promotion of wellness and general good health. The cuisine on the retreat is detox orientated, nutritionally balanced, and well thought out to provide you with enough vital vitamins, minerals, and energy to keep you tip-top throughout your stay.
Toxins in the body result from poor diet, stress, pollution, drug use, the water you drink, and environmental exposure. Your bodies tend to accumulate impurities from many different sources including food additives, pesticides, vehicle exhaust fumes, medical drug residues, and internal body processes. If you are distressed, under par or overweight, the natural elimination of these waste products may be too slow for the body in the long term. This is why Chillout Retreats helps to kick start a healthier lifestyle whilst on retreat with them and your detox cuisine helps to cleanse to help your system enabling it to cope with the daily demands placed on it.
Most importantly, Chillout Retreats can cater for all intolerances and allergies. They always have wheat-free, gluten, and dairy free options. The onsite food enthusiast, Lucie, will freshly prepare all breakfasts, lunches, and dinners on the majority of the retreats. She is passionate about food and creates the heartiest dishes that are considerate to body and mind. Wherever possible, fresh and local produce is used to support the local economy which is also high on the agenda. Unlimited fresh fruit and a fine selection of de-caffeinated tea and coffee are available 24 hours a day.
