Facilities

  • Yoga shala

Throughout this amazing retreat, you will be staying at an Edwardian country house situated in Kent. The house is rather like an unique exotic ashram. There is accommodation for up to 10 guests and has airy and light bedrooms of dormitory style. The Indian silks tents with futon rollaway floor beds can provide a grounding experience both physically and mentally. The decor is minimal to help declutter the mind. The bed linen is white and crisp, towels, night lights, hot water bottles and hairdryer are provided.

All accommodation is sharing for this retreat. There will be no mix room, as women will share with women. There are two bathrooms with bath and toilet. A hand-held shower is available in one of the bathrooms. In addition, there is a dedicated yoga room, which has a hot yoga heating system of 25 to 30 degrees.
