  • Catherine Annis

    Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for over 40 years. Having studied various styles of yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. Catherine’s daily yoga practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal and release the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.

This retreat will be held at the Brooklands Barn in Arundel, West Sussex, a luxurious 19th century converted barn in a rural setting with breath-taking views of the Sussex downs.

Arundel

Arundel is a picture postcard, almost fairy-tale type of town, dominated by its magnificent castle. The hilly and compact town centre is packed with lovely Georgian and Victorian houses, and the High Street and Eagle Street are full of unusual independent shops. Arundel also has a vibrant artistic side, with many artists and sculptors living or working in the town.

Bignor Roman villa

Bignor is a lovely village in one of the quietest parts of West Sussex. Bignor is most famous for the Roman villa, which lies on the slopes outside the village. These same slopes have a slightly Mediterranean feel to them too, because of the vineyard planted in neat rows, facing south towards the sun.

Fishbourne Roman palace

The Roman palace at Fishbourne is a first century home and archaeological site with the largest collection of early Roman mosaic floors in Britain. The garden has been carefully replanted to its original plan which features box hedging and staked espalier fruit trees. There is also a museum which tells the history of the site and displays many artifacts. The Collections Discovery center houses the sensitive store, research room, and conservation laboratory.

Sun-bathing

Within the gated compound is a spacious courtyard with wooden steamer lounger chairs where you can soak up all the sun, chill-out, and relax.

Swimming pool

There is a beautiful indoor heated swimming pool available for use any time you would like to take the plunge.

The Monarch’s Way

The Monarch’s Way is one of the great long distance walking and riding routes in England, wandering all the way from Worcester to Shoreham, and tracing the path of the fleeing Prince Charles in 1651. In West Sussex, the Monarch’s Way passes from Stansted park along the Downs to Steyning, and then descends to Brighton and, ultimately, Shoreham-by-sea. It is a truly historic route.

Walking

The South Downs Way is a magnificent 100-mile National Trail. It covers 48 spectacular miles in West Sussex, making it one of the most rewarding walks in the south of England. If you enjoy the countryside, this is a walk not to miss out.

West Wittering beaches

West Sussex has some of the best beaches on the south coast of England. In the west of the county, there’s a huge expanse of sandy beach that stretches for miles from East Head to Selsey. Further east, the beaches of Sussex run (almost interrupted) from Bognor beach to Brighton with only the mouth of the Arun and the harbour at Shoreham intervening.

You can book a massage on site, with a reservation, for an extra cost.

    "I liked your teaching style very much, using visualization and feeling your body dissolve into the mat, holding poses for a long time but in a gentle way that explores how the body works together. And thank you for your compliment about how we practiced yoga - very encouraging. We do hope to come to another retreat in the future, we both thought it was the perfect way to spend a weekend."
