Oxon Hoath is privately owned and offers all the facilities you would expect of a modern venue, yet it has never been commercialized so the house retains the genuine quirky feel of a grand family home. Truly somewhere different for all kinds of events for a team-building day to a residential course, a wild party, or spectacular wedding!

The Oxon Hoath interiors are stunning - the work of fabled architects and master craftsmen from centuries past. Four grand meeting rooms are available including the quintessentially English wood-paneled library.

Oxon Hoath has 28 bedrooms, accommodating up to 50 people in total. Most bedrooms are twins but there are also several singles, doubles, and two family rooms sleeping three or four. Most rooms retain the original mansion proportions and have ensuite facilities. Those without have a bathroom close by. All rooms are centrally heated, simple, and comfortable.

All classes are challenging and vibrant, emphasizing the importance of good posture and alignment. The weekend is an ideal opportunity to explore and deepen your practice, with two early morning pranayama classes, and seven hours of asana classes.

Iyengar yoga

Considered one of the safest and most user-friendly types of yoga, Iyengar yoga focuses on the proper alignment of the body. All teachers are trained to rigorously high standards to maintain the Iyengar care and precision. The unique method of using props and the sequencing of the poses highlights some of the reasons why Iyengar yoga is the most respected and referred styles of yoga taught worldwide.

  • Lin Craddock

    Having studied and practiced Iyengar yoga for over 30 years, Lin's passion and dedication for the subject is matched only by her knowledge and ability as a teacher. Lin has qualified as a senior Iyengar yoga teacher (senior 2) and continues her studies making regular trips to India.

  • Review by Laura

    "Since starting yoga at the Maidstone Yoga Centre, it has made a vast improvement to my scoliosis. It has been through practicing various yoga poses which have given strength and opening to my upper back and in main improved my overall posture in general."

    "The tutors at the center are friendly and knowledgeable, giving a clear instruction of each pose and ensuring that they are accessible to all. Both Lin and Leo are fantastic at explaining and making adjustments that have furthered my understanding and development week on week.With an emphasis on good posture and alignment, this is something that I have found beneficial both on and off the mat."

    "I would like to thank both Lin and Leo for their wonderful teaching, guidance, and the noticeable change to my upper back since attending classes."
