Restorative Yoga a safe and creative practise with nourishing circular movement sequences combining breath, meditation, mudra and mantra. This is a gentle, soothing practise allowing one to feel resourced and grounded from the toes up. Deep rest is also an important aspect of this practice creating a feeling of inner harmony and deep self-compassion. Brilliant for beginners and the more experienced who want to slow down and re-charge.

Embodied Flow Yoga is a revolutionary and empowering practise for all bodies, inviting each person to investigate their own experience whilst being expertly led through creative, enjoyable sequences that have been intelligently put together with fluidity instead of hard fast rules. It is a practise that will develop functional strength, flexibility and self-confidence. An antidote to modern sedentary lives these classes will have you inwardly celebrating your ranges of motion and strength capacity.

Kundalini yoga is the yoga of awareness, it is designed to help the practitioner connect to the energy inside, and to feel a greater sense of inner peace, joy and bliss. The yoga sets are called kriyas and include breath work, yoga postures, mantra and relaxation.

You will also be invited to try some mindfulness practices in nature as well as morning and evening meditations.

In-between the yoga sessions you have the freedom to relax in the garden, play tennis or join in on a group walk in the countryside that is all around you. The retreat chef will spoil you with divine treats in the form of homemade teas and tonics, nutritious snacks and meals. The weekend will leave you feeling totally reenergized, whole again, and calibrated on the deepest levels as the yoga practice and food will serve to reboot your whole system; the body, mind, and energy bodies.
