"Oasis of calm"

The house has a wonderful calming effect as soon as you enter and Sky is a fabulous host. The food was exquisite, some of the best vegan food I have ever had. The Ashtanga yoga was tough but great to be challenged and beautifully balanced with the calming Gong bath and Yin yoga. Thank you Sky

"Great Weekend"

Everything - Sky is a great host, cook and yoga teacher. Nothing was too much trouble. She seems to have a sixth sense which enables her to provide plenty of activity but allows plenty of downtime too. There were also guest instructors who added an extra dimension A thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

"Excellent Ashtanga retreat"

Sky was the perfect hostess, who made sure that we were comfortable and well fed during our stay. She is also a brilliant Ashtanga teacher and a talented gong practitioner. I liked the fact that she arranged for two alternative teachers so that we could experience a different Ashtanga class and also a wonderful Yin class. The atmosphere in the house was calm and there was enough space and time to relax. The Ashtanga was very tough but well taught and I could feel the benefit.

"Wonderful retreat!"

Feel re-energized and rested after this lovely retreat. Yoga classes were authentic with excellent teachers and a good balance of asthanga and yin yoga. The food was truly delicious and Sky so welcoming & accommodating. I really liked this spacious house as well- ideal for retreats. Really enjoyed the company of other participants, we had some great chats but there was also time to be on my own & reflect.

"This retreat will change your life"

The whole experience was amazing. Ashtanga yoga was practised every day of the retreat and was complimented very well with yin yoga (Sat afternoon) and the incredible sound meditation (Sat eve after supper). Sky is a wonderful instructor and her house has a wonderful and calming atmosphere. My yoga practise improved immensely in the three days and I fell completely in love with Ashtanga yoga. The vegan food was lovely and we were looked after really well. I really liked that we spent a lot of time grounded on the floor and the sleeping was arranged on the floor in beautifully made silk tents. Both Sky and Ebony were really lovely as well as Nick (Ashtanga yoga teacher who helped out on Sunday morning) and Yinny, the yin yoga teacher. I really enjoyed my weekend with them and didn't want to leave!

"Spiritualism and sweat!"

Sky Yoga is a beautifully curated retreat. Hosting, accommodation, food and atmosphere far exceed expectations.

Yoga instruction was excellent and I'd highly recommend going, but do make sure you understand that Ashtanga is physically demanding and you're meant to sweat!

"Refreshing & Uplifting "

I had the best weekend on this yoga retreat. The food was so tasty and you felt completely at ease chilling and relaxing in the beautiful house. It was great to learn a new style of yoga! Both the yoga teachers were superb. I have come away feeling very refreshed and ready to continue my journey. 100% recommend. Thank you Sky!

"Wonderful "

A lovely retreat with a variety of activities as well as yoga. My body felt very stretched but my mind was very 'relaxed' after the medidation exercises. As it was a small group it gave the opportunity to get to know each other well.

"A thoroughly enjoyable yoga retreat"

Sky held this space so beautifully and there was a lot more on offer than I expected: a chef on site, a gong bath, a massage available if you want it, and an overall level of care that is second to non. The yoga was very high standards too. All in all loved every minute.

Jenny Connor

What an incredible weekend away from it all. Brilliant to meet some unique personalities who are so passionate about yoga and teaching it to all. And the vegan food was yummy 😋 and the vegan cookery lesson fun and interesting . I can’t wait to book again

"Perfect mini yoga-break in Kent"

Loved this retreat! Sky creates a warm, safe and loving environment for learning and relaxation. I came in with some Ashtanga experience, but others in the retreat did not, but I always felt like I was challenged and that others were supported as they learned. Sky is great at providing adjustments to help you reach your yoga potential. Wai Yin's yin-yoga class was lovely and relaxed, and helped to balance the more yang Ashtanga. The gong sound bath in the evening was also my first and a totally unique experience that I hope to do again! The food was delicious and there was always lots! I liked the shared room experience, we had beautiful indian silk hangings for privacy, and lots of our own space, but something was really nice about sleeping in the same room as other women, it helps build the sense of community. I cannot recommend this retreat highly enough, thanks so much Sky!!!

"Lovely retreat which nurtured me"

The food was lovely. Sky as an instructor was amazing and really emphasised the importance of everyone listening to their bodies. She pushed me and I was able to get into posture I haven’t been able to do previously but at the same time it was all within my limit.

Natasha Henry

from United States, May 2018

The entire weekend from start to finish was incredibly well organised and relaxing. Sky is a fantastic yoga teacher and it was great to have such one on one attention. Ashtanga is definitely something I’d like to keep up! The vegan food was particularly excellent and the gong bath on Saturday night was quite an experience! Very easy to get to from London and well worth the money. I’d definitely go again!

"A wonderful retreat; challenging, rewarding and great fun"

Sky and her daughter Ebony are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The house is beautiful and the food was amazing. All the participants got on really well, everyone was kind and interesting and we had a lot of fun.

The Ashtanga yoga was demanding, which is what I wanted. Sky is a very good teacher, moving things along all the time, but I never felt under pressure when I couldn't keep up. I had a lot of personal attention in the Yoga classes which was extremely helpful. I feel I made a lot of progress. I also got a lot from the meditation sessions which were very well structured.

I had a massage from Tricia on the Saturday afternoon which was the best massage I have ever had. I felt huge benefit from it.

The Yin yoga class and the Tai Chi class were very enjoyable and provided a pleasant balance to the Ashtanga.

"Perfect introduction to Ashtanga"

I really enjoyed the Ashtanga Yoga and learning the primary series. It was very challenging and Sky got incredible progress out of all of us. The food was incredible and always plenty of it, but it was so healthy that we never felt bad going in for seconds!

"Wonderful inspirational weekend"

An inspirational weekend in a wonderful home 40 minutes from London. As a beginner to Ashtanga yoga I found Sky to be a great teacher, lots of energy positive, caring and very approachable. From morning meditation, yoga, Tai Chi and Nada yoga experience it was a weekend I will cherish. The food is fantastic a big thanks to Ivy, Reta, Sky and Susanne. A great friendly bunch of people also on retreat. The house is beautiful and Sky has created a haven away from busy lives.

My first experience of sleeping on a futon on the floor for years and it was very comfortable and liberating. The beautiful curtains separating surrounding your bed made you feel as if you were in a room alone.

All I can say is book now.

A wonderfully relaxing weekend and i've taken away some great tips and ideas to keep up practising at home. Felt very calm by the end of the weekend and was made to feel very welcome.

Tanya Bahari-connor

from United Kingdom, July 2017

It was clear Sky had put a lot of thought and effort for those staying on the retreat. Lots of little touches like flannels in the bathroom, earplugs, yoga mats if you hadn't brought your own, towels and blankets. The room exceeded my expectations with the Indian silk tents looking lovely in a bright room with tall ceilings. The house is amazing and feels so light, airy and welcoming as you walk in with lovely scents of inncence. The house is spacious and has plenty of rooms to relax and read and walk around the garden. The food was great and Sky and Ivy really were really kind to meet my dietary requirements. The yoga challenged me which was good but left me feeling wonderfully stretched. I would definately go again and would highly recommend the retreat.

"Fantastic Chill Out"

Loved the food, people and yoga. You get a great amount of yoga for the amount of time you are there and the alterations and advice given is great. You also have a laugh whilst doing it. Sky has an amazing sense of humor. Food is healthy and fabulous. The house is the perfect setting to switch off. Looking to return in the summer xx

"I loved it!"

Sky and her team were kindness itself, and the whole weekend was inspiring and relaxing. The Ayurveda-based food was delicious. The house is beautiful, spacious and welcoming, and set in its own lovely grounds, with a wood full of rabbits! The classes were varied and well planned, challenging enough without being too tough! I particularly enjoyed the Creative Yoga Beats class. The Sound Bath organised on Friday night set the tone for an exceptional spiritual experience and a memorable step on the journey for every participant. I could not recommend this retreat more highly

"Wonderful Weekend"

The location is calming, comfortable, homely and smells beautiful. There is lots of light and space and plenty of places to relax. The house is also spotlessly clean and Sky provides you with everything you need - plenty of towels, cushions and cosy blankets.

The house is located in the beautiful Kent countryside where in your spare time you can walk and enjoy the nature.

The yoga is taught by very knowledgeable practitioners and the groups are small enough for the teachers to assist you with positions. The mediation is also wonderful. Sky used drums and bowls to amazing effect.

The food and drinks that Sky prepared for us was delicious and fresh and in abundance.

I would recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to practice yoga in a lovely home with a wonderful host who pays attention to every details to make your stay a special experience.

Silvana Di Gregorio

"A perfect retreat"

Everything about this retreat was perfect. Sky is an excellent teacher, taking care in giving personal attention to those of us who have difficulty with some of the asanas. Her home is welcoming, peaceful and beautiful and the food she cooked for us was delicious and plentiful. I had never booked a place before where I shared accommodation and had been in two minds before booking. But I needn't have been concerned because Sky has created private little 'nests' within those rooms - with lovely silk curtains giving us privacy. We had lovely weather so we were able to soak up the sun in the garden after class. I had never felt so restful. Sky provides lots of treats - vegan ice cream, biscuits, and a plentiful supply of a variety of herbal teas.We were fortunate to have Mark Swan give us a gong bath which was an amazing experience. After the gong bath we had hot chocolate outside around the chiminea which was a lovely bonding experience for the group.

Sky was a fantastic hostess and teacher - my husband and I had the most wonderful stay, feeling refreshed after a lovely weekend of mindfulness and stillness. The food was top-notch, the rooms were so bright and airy and the yoga itself was revitalising. Feeling stretched and refreshed! Would 100% recommend! It was great having the opportunity to have a chat to Sky about her background and experiences.

Briony Sowden

"Well worth the money!"

Sky and her home were so welcoming and the space she invited us into was positive, warm and encouraging. I'm new to yoga and found the classes challenging but rewarding. Everything about this retreat exceeded expectations - and it came down to the little things, like the hot water bottle for bed, waking up to singing bowls and the vegan chocolate icecream after Yin yoga. I'd happily come back again.

"wonderful retreat"

The yoga practice was great. Classes were equally good for experts as well as newbies, as Sky gave individual attention to all yogis.

The food was all vegan. As an omnivore, I thought I might struggle. But I found the food to be tasty, generous, and of good quality. There was even a surprise vegan ice cream treat.

The accommodation is clean, spacious, comfortable and well presented. There's enough room for a bit of privacy should you need it.

The highlight of the retreat is Sky. She is amazing, as is her daughter Ebony. They were both very knowledgeable about yoga and much of what surrounds it (nutrition, health, philosophy, spirituality). They were also hospitable, which made the stay very comfortable. They had a lot of time for all the visitors on the retreat.

"A peaceful haven to refresh and recharge "

From the moment I stepped inside I felt such a warm and welcoming energy from Sky. Her home was lovely and was a peaceful haven from the hustle of life. She was an excellent yoga teacher and her passion for the yogic philosophy was inspiring. There was a great balance between strong and dynamic Ashtanga yoga and soothing, gentle Yin yoga and meditations. And there was also plenty of time for relaxing on my own. The homemade vegan food was delicious and beautifully prepared by Sky and Ebony. There was a lovely group of 8 in total. I felt cleansed, refreshed and recharged. I would recommend this retreat to anyone.

I'm a busy professional mum and was looking for a weekend rest away from home. This weekend yoga retreat struck the perfect balance of activity, rest, spirituality and pragmatism. The accommodation was clean and spacious; the vegan cuisine was fantastic; the yoga/meditation was excellent in terms of the classes themselves and schedule of the day. I came back feeling completely rested and motivated.

Sky provides the perfect setting and makes sure that everyone feels welcome and that they get what they need from the retreat. This is right from a beginner like me to those with much more experience. Her home is beautiful and so easy to float around and feel completely comfortable, and the food delicious and wholesome. I would recommend to anyone and I would go again in a heartbeat.

"Inspirational Weekend!"

The whole enriching experience was amazing: never attended a yoga class & fancied a weekend away. Set in gorgeous grounds, accommodation felt homely & plush. Communal bedrooms were big & felt luxurious - slept incredibly well. Delicious, healthy & wholesome vegetarian food all home-cooked by Sky. BTW, I am a meat-eater but didn’t miss it at all! Loved timetable & the classes. Sky gave me the confidence to try it all & delivered to a mix of abilities, all were lovely guests, booked in on their own. I’ve fallen for Ashtanga & keen to progress. The chanting & sound bath was soul nourishing and Sky is an amazing percussionist. Highly recommend for value, location, and schedule. A retreat experience that I will look back on with wonderful memories! Thank you, Sky!

Lovely space - very tranquil , great vegan food, challenging Ashtanga yoga practice and beautiful relaxing Yin. Sky was a fabulous hostess , very knowledgeable and keen to share her yogic lifestyle and experience with the group while making us feel completely relaxed in her beautiful home. Although the actual retreat was a day and a half it felt like we had been away for a lot longer. Every detail of the experience had been thought through. Having attended a number of yoga retreats round the world, would certainly recommend this one.

Sky made you feel at home from the second you walked through the door. Lovely atmospheric surroundings. Special extras such as bubble bath, cosy throw, real fires, hot chocolate and a hot water bottle at bed time made me feel very nurtured.

Great mix of classes with ashtanga and yin yoga with fantastic instruction and support.

Thank you Sky for sharing your home, knowledge and expertise with our great group.

"Perfect Yoga Getaway"

My husband and I had never been to a retreat before and we were delighted with the experience and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the yoga classes to the meditation, the pranayama and the fantastic vegan food, Sky had put together the perfect getaway with a good amount of activity and downtime and an idyllic space to just be. Sky was delightful and very welcoming to all of us, lovely company and atmosphere. Would definitely do it again and will highly recommend it.

"Perfect getaway "

I had such a good weekend at Sky’s. The setting is so relaxing; nestled in the green pastures of Kent, Sky’s home is beautiful and tranquil.

Sky’s class was a perfect balance of instructive and challenging, adapting goals for each student but also encouraging us to achieve more than we thought possible.

The food was INCREDIBLE.

And more generally, Sky was just a fountain of wisdom and was happy to answer the many questions of new and curious yoga students.

"The perfect time out of modern day day life "

It helped with my depression as I learned different techniques that would help me "switch off".

The house was very homely, and enhanced relaxation. The other woman I met, all had their journeys too and it was so lovely how we all bonded.

Food was great, and it was being 12 years old again and being completely looked after :-)....

Coming away from the weekend, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I feel calmer.

Shani Corb

"My first yoga retreat"

I didn't really know what to expect as this was my first yoga retreat. It wasn't relaxing yoga, it was muscle-achingly hardcore Ashtanga! It was awesome and Sky was great at helping you in to positions and correcting your posture so as not to injure yourself. Everyone was encouraged to "come to the mat with the body you have" so you could do as little or as much as your body allowed. The food was amazing and the Gong-bath unusual. Although I came home aching and tired, one day later I feel exhilarated and energised. I would thoroughly recommend.

Sheranie Qaisar

"Immersive Experience"

There was so much in the itinerary that the time went really quickly. The yoga sessions were amazing, the talks most interesting and the gong bath a real experience. There was no pressure to take part if you just wanted to relax and there were plenty of places to rest and relax. The food was amazing - freshly prepared and very tasty. Nobody went hungry!

"Ashtanga retreat May bank holiday weekend "

The accommodation was stunning. A beautiful house to retreat to. I was a bit nervous about sharing a room with strangers, but Sky has created personal ‘tent’ like spaces in the very large rooms, so I felt that I had my own space and privacy. I slept very well both nights. The ashtanga Yoga was a welcome challenge for me, as I usually practice vinyasa flow. I will certainly be looking to attend ashtanga to improve my practice. Sky is a perfect host - very welcoming and down to earth, also very wise and interesting. Tally’s vegan food was delicious and has kick started me into healthy eating for the summer. Another welcome treat was the gong bath. All in all a lovely group of people and a five star experience.

"Strongly recommend"

I had such a great time at Sky's retreat. She tries to bring the most authentic Mysore style yoga experience, I guess it's true not just because of the teaching but also the room temperature (warm, like in India), room arrangement (shared rooms) etc. It's different and really fun. Her house is so beautiful (can't really be captured in the photo) and everything is set up to make you feel welcomed and relaxed. There are plenty of classes and given it's Ashtanga it was really good "work out". I couldn't believe how much I've learnt and progressed over the weekend! Also a huge thanks to Emily (Sky's daughter) for the fantastic food. The location is so close to London yet totally away from the city and crowd as well. Everything was just great, thank you Sky!

Small group of 8 , nice company

Easy to get to from London by train - Sky provides great service with pick up from local train station.

Good value for the overall weekend, highly recommended

"Sky Ashtanga hot yoga retreat"

Sky was extremely welcoming and accommodating to all of our need, I found the whole experience amazing and uplifting. Go and fully immerse yourself in the experience that Sky has to offer, including the vegan way of eating. I would thoroughly recommended this to anyone who is interested in yoga, I have dipped in and out of yoga over the years but do't attend classes or practice it regularly but this didn't limit what I could do.

"Beautiful, relaxing, yoga-filled weekend"

I really enjoyed the yoga classes. Sky is a wonderful teacher and notices what your body is doing and what it is capable of - she supports as you push your body's limits. No judgement only encouragemeant, I came away feeling so relaxed and pleased with my progress.

The food was delicious - I have an egg allergy which was 100% catered for.

"Détente entre amies"

Les cours de yoga sont de qualité, la maison de Sky est particulièrement cosy et sa cuisine est délicieuse. Peut-être ajouter un massage en option pour rendre le séjour parfait

It truly doesn't get much better than this. The Weekend Body Unplugged Yoga Retreat is located at the aptly named Santosha, a Sanskrit word for 'contentment'. The Ashtanga yoga classes were demanding yet so well taught that beginners would not feel left behind. Sky and Ivy who run the retreat are warm and welcoming individuals with a wealth of knowledge about this form of yoga and Ayurvedic medicine. The house is stunning; set off the beaten track on beautiful well-kept grounds. The food was second to none. Vegan and gluten free including a special treat of southern Indian cuisine cooked on site. I really didn't want to leave. If you're looking for a retreat that treats your mind, body and soul, look no further, this is it.

What a wonderful weekend! I really don't know where to start.

Whether a Yoga beginner (like me), or a more practised yoga convert (like others in our group), I feel sure you would appreciate the holistic and comprehensive, yet un-pressured and casual itinerary that Sky has put together.

From her pool of experience and expert knowledge, and with the addition of a range of other welcome influences and helpers (Tai Chi teacher; Ayurvedic cook; nutritionist and general yoga expert (Hello Ivy!)), this felt like a proper sanctuary for mind, body and soul.

The small group size meant there was plenty of room for personal guidance, if needed, but also for lots of good chat and getting to know our hosts and fellow guests. Lounging around doing nothing but enjoying endless tea and good food also felt like a tempting option.

With such down-to-earth hosts, gorgeous house, luxurious bedrooms, and so many other thoughtful touches (I don't want to say too much!), I sincerely hope I can return. Thank you Sky.

I would give the retreat eight out of ten. Made to feel very welcome and relaxed in a beautiful house with lovely hosts, sky and sue. Southern indian food was delicious and very healthy ( loved the dosa breakfasts!). Yummy smoothies and juices first thing in the morning, invigorating yoga and centering energy work, hidden suprises within the weekend...what more could you ask for?
