Join Vinyasa flow teacher Faye Riches for a New Year yoga detox weekend in January. Stay in a 17th century manor house, hidden away in a traditional country village, an hour north of London. Kick start the beginning of the year with a healthy yoga weekend and blast away the winter blues that will both refresh and challenge you. You will leave feeling more energized with improved muscle tone, glowing skin, and increased flexibility.
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.
