During this luxury yoga weekend in the beautiful Walton Hall and Hotel, you will take time away from the hurry of everyday life to rejuvenate body, mind, and spirit. Put into practice Ayurveda teachings for keeping the body balanced and your immune system strong through the winter months with Ayurvedic lifestyle, foods, and yoga practices.
Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel & Spa has 149 standard bedrooms and 11 apartments of a contemporary design located in the hotel part of the property, with the option of upgrading to one of the 37 superior rooms and suites in the beautiful sixteenth-century grade II listed hall. The hotel is a perfect wedding venue in Warwickshire with stunning grounds and dining. The spa has treatment rooms, a pool, and a gym. There are 22 conference rooms at the hotel, located within easy reach of Stratford upon Avon and Oxford with ample parking.
The yoga classes will be created specifically to support the replenishing of your whole selves - body, heart, and spirit and strengthening of the immune system, and other body systems which tend to be weaker at this time of year. There will be morning Hatha yoga classes with postures, breathing practices, and guided deep relaxations. And afternoon restorative yoga practices, also with guided breathing practices and a healing visualization.
These practices should leave your body and mind feeling relieved of long held tensions, your heart nourished, your spirit uplifted, and ready for a balanced, healthier winter season.
So the morning Hatha yoga classes and afternoon Yin-Restorative yoga classes will all carry an intention to nourish the kapha dosha, soothe the heart and mind, and replenish your energy reserves to build vigor, strength, and immunity. The yoga classes will be followed by special breathing practices, healing visualizations, and meditations. The breathing practices and meditations are created to help relieve physical and emotional pain, to nourish the heart, uplift the spirits, and to restore positivity and optimism to the mind.
You will be practicing outdoors on a yoga platform in the hotel gardens, a stone’s throw from the sea alongside a deserted unspoiled beach, with stunning views of the coast and mountains.
Morning and evening guided meditations will offer you a rare chance to rest in deep stillness, giving your nervous systems time to pause, and your the busy-ness in your minds a chance to subside. This is a time to reclaim that inner peace that is your birthright and yet so often eludes you in your busy daily lives.

This rejuvenation yoga weekend set in the beautiful grounds of the Walton Hall estate, deep in the Warwickshire countryside, invites you to step away from your daily life for a few days to take rest in nature and give your body and mind a chance to relax and replenish. The whole ambiance of the Walton Hall estate with its gardens and pastures, surrounded to the sides by woods, makes this venue a perfect getaway for a weekend yoga break.
The place is easily accessible from most parts of the country, is close to many places of interest in the heart of England, and yet is deeply peaceful, beautiful, and alongside the yoga, meditation, and healthy foods on offer, could be just the restful and re-energizing tonic your body is looking for.

The foods will be 95% plant based, with a little dairy, and will be selected for their ease of digestion which should support the cleansing and healing work of your yoga practices.
