Program

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 practice different types of mediation over the three days.

In-between your 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 chef Susie will spoil you with divine treats in the form of home-made 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.
