Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in the United Kingdom.
Come and enjoy three days of yoga, breath work, meditation, mantra, and relaxation in the beautiful grounds at The Quaives, in the stunning Kent countryside with an experienced teacher. In our classes there are no levels, everyone does what they can and that is all, which means it is open to everyone of all abilities. In this weekend retreat, you will get a chance to experience many different Hatha and Kundalini yoga classes taught by experienced yoga teacher Satgur, as well as free time to enjoy the gardens, walks in the countryside and for those that feel very energetic there is the tennis court! Or enjoy unwinding in the outside hot tub. The food, snacks, and drinks are lovingly prepared by the onsite chef, Susie, meticulously well planned to give you tasty and nutritious food to help reboot your system, so you leave feeling rejuvenated and reenergized. Guests can help themselves to teas and filtered water during the weekend, and relax inside the saloon with comfy sofas and a log burner at one end for chilling, reading or chatting to other group members.
The Quaives is a beautiful small countryside estate in East Kent, with 19 acres of beautiful formal gardens and grounds to explore, that open onto meadows and the lakes beyond. There is a tennis court and cedarwood pavilion for guests' use. The Quaives can house on site 13 to 16 persons.

The studio itself can comfortably accommodate up to 20 with lots of space plus teachers. It is incredibly light and spacious, and it has underfloor heating throughout. The studio is also available between yoga sessions for silent meditation and time to yourself.
Everyone eats in the Saloon, a self-contained building next to the studio. It is a Scandinavian style cafeteria, with self-help tea, water and fruit on offer at one end and with sofas and a log burner at the other end where guests can chill, read and chat, and help themselves to cups of tea.
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.
Please note that all activities are optional and subject to change.
Either on Saturday or Sunday there will be a 90-minute or a 60-minute walk in the countryside which is optional depending on whether the group prefers to do a longer or shorter walk. The walk will be led by Satgur right from the doorstep of The Quaives on countryside paths and through picturesque villages.
