Accommodation

Check-in Time:
16:00
Check-out Time:
14:00

Bonhays has a mixture of single and shared rooms. The accommodation is simply furnished, well-equipped with a warm, welcoming feel, and clean, comfortable rooms. The main living space (there's more than one) has big sofas for lounging and an open-plan kitchen. The outside space has picnic tables and benches, and the yoga room and indoor heated swimming pool are available whenever you wish to use them.

If you're coming as a group of 3 or 4 (if your group includes a couple), there's an option to have one of the accommodation buildings to yourself. This consists of one twin bunk room and one room with a double bed plus a bathroom, kitchen, and lounge area. For more information, please send an inquiry.

Program

Yoga

Yoga sessions are suitable for all levels, from beginners to seasoned yogis, and are held in the group room, a lovely large space with a gentle, restful vibe. The morning Vinyasa flow class is more energizing, the later Yin session, softer and mostly mat-based, and Yoga Nidra, a guided full body relaxation, after supper. You are free to do as many, or as few, activities as you wish, there's no pressure.

Dorset is one of the UK's most iconic counties, home to the Jurassic Coast (the only natural World Heritage Site in England) and enjoys 364 more hours of sunshine throughout the year in comparison to the UK average.
