Serendipity Yogi's warmly invites you to a fun and energizing retreat in a stunning location in rural Oxfordshire. This retreat is suitable for both new and experienced yogis, and for those with a vibrant, compassionate, curious, and enthusiastic nature. The aim of this retreat is to learn, evolve, relax, rejuvenate, and forge friendships together. With a fun, warm, and welcoming atmosphere, you will be able to practice to your own level of ability with no pressure or judgment.
During the retreat, you will stay at The Abbey, Sutton Courtenay. The Abbey is a unique medieval building, set in extensive grounds, tucked away in the small village of Sutton Courtenay, just 10 miles south of Oxford. This extraordinary facility is used by individuals and groups from the public, private, and voluntary sectors. It is surrounded by a peaceful yet creative setting that never ceases to inspire all who visit.
The Abbey is surrounded by four acres of beautiful grounds that include mature trees, a woodland path, and a labyrinth and tranquil sitting areas, which all guests are welcome to explore and enjoy. There are also fine walks through the old village and along the nearby Thames.
There is a great hall, which has a timber vaulted ceiling, wooden floor, magnificent fireplace, french windows opening onto the garden, and a grand piano. This space is very flexible and can accommodate up to 80 people. There is also a library available on the first floor with magnificent stained glass windows overlooking the gardens. It seats up to 14 in armchairs.
The primary goal of this retreat is to ensure all guests have an amazing time and feel valued, welcome, and accepted for who they are. This will be a special experience, which hopefully will inspire and drive a true love of the beautiful journey of yoga.
The timetable will cater for all levels of practice, with teachings in Hatha, Yin, and Vinyasa yoga, as well as pranayama and yoga theory. Sian is currently studying Ashtanga, and hopes to introduce beginner lessons in the Primary Series by the time of the February retreat.
All lessons are optional, and you are encouraged to only participate in your own personal areas of interest. There is no pressure to take part in all lessons. You will start the day at a reasonable time, around 8:30 a.m. You shall practice outside in the glorious gardens if the weather permits, otherwise the backup is in the great hall, a stunning and unique room.
Whether you are looking to improve your fitness levels, incorporate exercise into your life, improve your emotional well-being and self-confidence, reduce stress levels, or discover a sense of spirituality, this yoga retreat is perfect for you. Whatever your motivation is, this retreat can help you to develop your practice. The yoga classes will be led by Sian. She teaches with a light heart, passion, joy and humor, creating a fun, warm, and welcoming atmosphere.
The retreat will take place in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom.
