The accommodation is arranged in a 17th century manor house with luxuriously plush bedrooms in both the main house and the converted stable yard. The bedrooms in the main house are larger with views out onto the extensive grounds and gardens. These rooms share bathrooms between two or three people. The bedrooms in the converted stables are beautifully designed, some have ensuite bathroom facilities.

The house is set within five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and a further fifty acres of private land. The Crystal yoga room overlooks the parterre garden and the Sanctuary meditation room is nestled in secluded woodland. This location also has its own labyrinth, a unique and sacred space perfect for peaceful reflection and quiet time.

Engage in ten hours of yoga classes with Faye Riches over the weekend in a beautiful, warm yoga studio with views onto a private parterre garden. Faye teaches Vinyasa flow yoga, a dynamic style of yoga where you practice a smoothly flowing sequence of asana connected by the breath. Modifications and progressions are given so that students of all levels will find these yoga classes rewarding. The classes will be around two and half hours long.

You will start your day with a warming dynamic practice. Refresh and energize with a led afternoon practice that will focus on deepening your awareness into asana. Your meditation practice will bring in space and lightness.

Students of all levels are welcome to the weekend retreat. Since it is a yoga detox weekend, with longer classes and a dynamic flow practice, it is recommended that you are relativity fit.

    "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."

    "After a decade of going on retreats there are many reasons why I rate Reclaim Your Self as being in a league of their own. Jools and Lisa create an atmosphere of authentic intimacy and support from the outset, the organization is superb, venues always carefully selected, and the food delicious. The retreats will always leave you wanting more."

    "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!"
