    Accommodation is arranged at the 17th century manor house, which has has luxuriously plush bedrooms in the main house and the converted stable yard. The bedrooms in the main house are larger with views out onto beautiful gardens. These rooms share bathrooms between two or three people. The bedrooms in the converted stable yard are set around a courtyard surrounded by gardens. Most of the rooms at the stable yard are ensuite.


    Yogis of all levels are welcome to the retreat. A Jivamukti class trial is recommended before you attend the retreat, as it is a dynamic flow style of yoga. It will require you to commit to your classes. The retreat teacher, Emma Henry, is one of the top Jivamukti teachers and is very experienced at teaching mixed level groups, so you can be sure of feeling challenged and inspired to safely explore and deepen your yoga practice.

    Each Jivamukti class offers a vigorous asana practice that is infused with inspiring teachings derived from the ancient yogic texts. A class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing Vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation, and meditation. Modifications and progressions are given so that students of all levels find the yoga classes rewarding.

    Digital detox

    While technology can bring plenty of benefits to your daily lives it can mean that you are always on. Through the retreat, take time to switch off. With emails on your smart phones, multiple social media accounts, and the internet at your finger tips, it can be difficult to do so. Thus, there are digital detoxes to do just that. You are asked to switch off your devices for a powerful dose of time offline and healthy you time. The yoga retreat is a good place to take a proper break from technology. You can fill your break with yoga, good food, refreshing nature, and downtime.

    • Review by Jo from Montastruc, France

      "From the start until the end, the yoga retreat was very well organized. Great communication from Jools and Amber, no question too mundane to answer. Arriving at the retreat, the house and location in southwest France were lovely, and I was made to feel very welcome. The food was fabulous, without exception due to the brilliant chef, Emma Fountain and her great assistant Terri (the best herb tea maker in the West). Yoga taught by Faye Riches was inspirational and fun, I learnt so much. The other guests were varied and diverse and I loved every day of the seven-day retreat and feel healthier than I have done in years. I can't wait to book again! Thanks to Jools and her amazing team."

      "The Reclaim Your Self team were well organized, caring and friendly during my weekend retreat in Bedford. It was my first time travelling on my own and had booked the retreat as a reward for qualifying as a yoga teacher. Special thanks to Jools and her team for welcoming me and made me feel instantly at ease, and with the other guests, felt we were a family who bonded other the weekend through yoga, meditation, and chanting. The accommodation and food was exceptional (impressed with staff caring about my special dietary requirements). It was an amazing experience and helped me both physically and mentally so felt more grounded, relaxed, and keen to do another in the future. I would recommend anyone to try it!"
