"Fabulous A little slice of bliss"

A bucolic intimate setting, perfect pace and plan. Yoga sessions were divine without any pressure to keep up with anything. First rate hospitality. A real treasured break

"Incredible yoga retreat"

The perfect weekend with amazing yoga, food, atmosphere, accommodation and setting. I've done retreats before but this takes you to the next level of relaxation. I've taken so much away from this experience, i would highly recommend.

"100% recommended! "

The Quaives is a beautiful location for finding some inner peace ✌️

Although I don’t usually follow a vegetarian diet the chefs cooked up some delicious dishes that I’ve never tried before.

All of the different types of yoga were brilliantly presented and I’ve come away with the aches of having worked out but the calm mind I was looking for.

The wood fired hot tub was a great experience in the freezing cold of the evening. The group of ladies was lovely and it was unexpectedly good to spend time with new people.

I’d definitely come back again!

"Wonderful, relaxing weekend"

Fantastic teaching - challenging but also flexible and relaxed. Delicious food. Really nice, friendly atmosphere. Cute and friendly dog! Lovely countryside. Very easy to get to from London. The cottage where I stayed was really comfortable and I had lots of privacy and space.

"A Wonderfully Nurturing Retreat In Stunning Surroundings"

I couldn’t recommend this retreat highly enough. It was the perfect blend of beautiful surroundings, cosy accommodation, nourishing vegetarian food and most importantly a balanced programme of yoga that both challenged and nurtured. It went ahead in a time of Covid with very sensible adaptions that had only a small impact on the overall experience. Very grateful it went ahead and that Anna, Claire and everyone at The Quaives made it happen. I’ve come away feeling refreshed and more spacious in body and mind. Thank you all 🙏🏻

"Erholsamer Kurzurlaub "

Das Essen war besonders gesund und liebevoll zubereitet, die Unterkunft sehr sauber und neu. Wenn man von der einstündigen Anreise aus London absieht, empfehle ich diesen Kurzurlaub zum auftanken jedem weiter

"Beyond amazing!"

A wonderful escape from everyday life. I received a warm welcome and the cottage was lovely; clean, cosy and beautifully decorated. The classes were great; excellent instruction, loads of guidance and new learning. Claire was a brilliant instructor for yogis of all levels. Adaptions were made for those of us with injuries and there was no judgement. The food was fantastic and there was plenty of it! The gardens and countryside were beautiful. The saloon area was a lovely cosy place to meet, eat and relax.

I will certainly be booking to come back. Keep up the good work - this is a gem of a place.

"Women coming together 💗"

From start to finish this weekend was a dream. My plan was to get out of London for a few days and I felt as if I have returned from another planet. It's funny how you feel you have to get far away to get refreshed but this weekend was just what I needed. Not my usual retreat that I would normally attend but I loved trying new things. The hot tub under the stars was amazing and the fooooood. Delicious. Will be returning for sure.

"Transformative Experience"

My experience with Claire and her teaching team at The Quaives was utterly phenomenal. Right from the moment I arrived, Claire was welcoming and thoughtful. This was my first ever yoga and women’s retreat so I was unsure of what to expect for the weekend. I left on Sunday afternoon feeling like I had been there for months, not simply a weekend. The quality of the healing, nourishment, workshops and lasting tools was exceptional. Claire was also extremely respectful when I needed solitude versus group activity over the weekend and I didn’t ever feel pressure to participate if it wasn’t right for me. Two weeks after returning home, I still feel the radiant glow that I left the weekend with, which is indicative of the quality of the retreat.

"Wonderful retreat! "

Incredible retreat set in stunning grounds and an excellent programme of workshops and sessions. I left feeling refreshed and reconnected with myself and so inspired by the amazing group of women (and instructors!) I spent the retreat with. 12 out of 10 :). Thank you Clare!

"Magical peaceful place"

Everything is perfect! The location is easy to access from London, the property is magical with loads of green space to chill during the day and escape the city. The yoga practice was a unique experience and I learnt a lot. The food was another special touch - healthy, delicious and different!

"Wonderful experience!"

Absolutely glorious experience. I so enjoyed my two day kundalini retreat, it was exactly what I needed to just get off the hamster wheel and stop doing.

Satgur was welcoming and very knowledgeable, her teaching was inspiring. The food provided exceeded my expectations, so fresh and so varied, I’m missing it hugely now home!

All in all these 2 days provided a welcome and much needed break from day to day life, I’m sure I shall return :-)

"Kundalini Yoga Weekend"

What a beautiful weekend. Wonderful yoga, lovely food, loving people. The garden was magical and just sitting in nature in the hammock after the yoga practice was bliss. In that moment all was well with the world. Thank you I will be back 🙏

"Lovely Womens Weekend in Kent"

The surroundings are incredibly beautiful and it was wonderful to spend some time away from everyday life whilst being so close to home. The Quaives is such a wonderful space to relax and retreat and a lot of effort has gone in to making you feel really cared for and held. Meeting so many wonderful and inspiring women and being led by Clare was a real privilege and I felt very safe in my experience. And I really enjoyed the interesting and enlightening discussions as part of the workshop aspects of the weekend. I would really recommend going to stay at The Quaives in any capacity, but particularly as part of a retreat. Really good value and a really enjoyable and enlightening weekend!

"Loving and caring "

I loved everything, the exercise, social and meeting nice people, hot tub was so nice, and had a message lifted me spiritually.

Clare was wonderful, friendly and attentive. Shows care and held everyone with respect and care. I was not expected to gives me special attention at all, she saw a sadness in me and she did hold me with love and care,

I felt so good and loved after retreat.

"Restorative Peace"

The most amazing, rejuvenating experience. A range of practices and healing, which taught me so much, and lessons to take into my everyday life. The accommodation and surroundings heightened the whole experience.

"Beautiful retreat"

The venue is stunning, the food was excellent and plentiful and Satgur looked after us well. The style of yoga was new to be but I really enjoyed it and Satgur was great at paying attention and going with the needs of the group. Fantastic massage from Fern too.

"Living in the bubble"

From the moment I arrived, I relaxed. The Quaives is in a gorgeous location and Clare and her family have transformed the lovely outbuildings to a place of serene tranquillity.

The Kundalini yoga is magical, it transforms your mindset and movement in a very short space of time. The evening meditation was probably my favourite, with candles and sound gong, it washes over you and you are completely relaxed.

The food was lovingly and carefully prepared, all dishes were plentiful, totally delicious and packed with goodness & flavour.

On Saturday afternoon I had a fabulous massage by Fern, which was very holistic with sound therapy and reiki. A lovely walk on the Sunday morning through the local countryside before our lunch and farewells......back to normality this morning, with radio on and emails pinging. I will certainly be back!

"An uplifting experience "

Two amazing teachers satgur kaur and Radha priya made my first taught experience of kundalini memorable with deep meditation and amazing sound from the gong bath. Food was wonderful and such a scerene and calm setting.
