You will be staying in the beautiful surroundings of the eco farm with food picked from the on-site organic farm when in season, and watch your excitement levels rise as you walk on a window. You can see down into the nursery stable below which depending upon the time of year has freshly hatched chicks, snow goose, goslings, Swiss Valais lambs, or Boer kids being born. The other unique feature is the hay mattress beds in the stall partition and the coziness factor is increased further by liberal use of sheepskins from the flock.

The original pulley system is still in place but instead of hauling up hessian sacks of grain to be stored, The Grain Loft has draped a cluster of light bulbs through it. With fresh vegetable for the picking, a 180-acre family-run farm has been certified organic by the Soil Association since 1996. As well as being a great place to live and farm, it is a wonderful location to stay in the luxury converted barns.

Program

Your yoga weekend will include a combination of Vinyasa yoga classes, Yin yoga, workshops and meditation with Nova Milesko, lovely massages available throughout the weekend, The New Forest wander, and delicious nourishing food. The retreat will be the perfect balance of effort and surrender-nurture for yourself with yoga. You will explore the calming effects of Yin and meditation. The morning sessions will start with gentle stretching and pranayama (breathing exercises) building gradually into a Flow (Vinyasa) practice suitable for most of the ability.

The more gentle evening sessions of Yin will focus on relaxation and release, promoting harmony, healthy immune functioning, and improving overall vitality. The retreat setting will allow for plenty of individual guidance so that Nova Milesko will be able to work with your specific level and requirements. The workshop will be group dependant. If you want to play, it can be AcroYoga and if you want to rest, then it might be a deep yoga Nidra practice or maybe an Ayurvedic detox lecture. It is your retreat that you decide.

Note: You should arrive by 16:00 and the program will finish after lunch on Sunday.

Included excursions

You will wander The New Forest.
