The venue will make you feel immediately at home and you can settle down in front of a roaring open fire, take a long bath in one of the unique bathrooms, or go for a quiet walk in the apple orchard. For over a century, Poundon has been the perfect place to escape from the bustle of city life. The luxurious rooms are spacious, light, and offer an extremely comfortable heaven to relax and rest in.

On this retreat, you will enjoy daily meditation, yoga classes, and workshops. The arrival time on Friday is from 15:00 onwards. The first yoga session will be at 17:00 which will then followed by a delicious dinner. There will be two yoga classes on Saturday and Sunday. Mornings on both days will begin with meditation and pranayama, followed by a flowing Hatha class. The second class of the day will be a shorter more restorative and slower paced yoga class.

Each day after the morning yoga and a healthy breakfast, there will be opportunities to walk, have a massage, or relax in one of the comfy lounges by a roaring fire or take a long bath. This weekend retreat will finish on Sunday after lunch at 13:00.

%This holiday is open to all levels of ability and the groups are often a broad mix from beginners to yoga teachers. Everyone is welcomed and the teacher is experienced in offering something for everyone with more challenging practices for experienced yogis and guidance for those who are newer to the practice. If you have the chance though, it is always a good idea to try a yoga class or two before you come.

She completed an intensive nine-month teacher training in Byron Bay in 2003 and taught at Brahmani Yoga (former Purple Valley) in India until 2008. Jaya teaches a dynamic flow style that combines the integrity, precision, and alignment of Iyengar with the movement and breath awareness of Vinyasa. Jaya's techniques tend to suit students of varying abilities, as they can be both calming and challenging. Most importantly, Jaya creates a safe and nurturing environment that encourages self-discovery and non-competitiveness.

    "Thank you Yoga on a Shoestring for a wonderful weekend. Brazier's Park is both eccentric and inviting. With its green gardens or cozy interior, you can find the perfect spot to switch off. And you won't go hungry with amazing vegetarian meals and vegan desserts! The yoga classes were structured for all levels and really opened up your body to detox and energize. The weekend was full of positive energy from woman coming together and re connecting. Absolutely recommend to anyone!!! "

    "This yoga operation offers something unusual and much needed: affordable yoga holidays that provide a touch of luxury. Don't expect slick, five star accommodation, but do expect experienced, committed teachers who provide a reasonably priced yoga retreat to remember. Choose a magical beachside retreat with masterful yoga teacher Ali Gunning, or a luxury new-year retreat in Morocco. Other inspiring locations around the world include the unspoilt Italian coast, a tiny island in Greece and the pretty Norfolk countryside."

    "Yoga on a Shoestring aims to make yoga holidays more affordable by gathering a variety of teachers in a host of locations running yoga holidays throughout the summer. Its September trip to Masseria della Zingara (the house of the gypsy) in Puglia houses you in a beautiful and restful 18th-century building surrounded by olive groves and cherry trees and offers two yoga classes a day as well as opportunities for bike rides, beach time and the chance to explore the area."

    "This yoga retreat takes place by the beautiful Italian sea. Masseria della Zingara is set in over 20 acres of olive trees, figs, cherries and almonds and is located near Polignano a Mare, the ice cream capital of Italy. The yoga classes focus on movement, breath, relaxation and meditation. The week long retreat starts at $646.64 to $1,333. The price includes accommodations, three meals a day, and morning and evening yoga classes."

Very laid back. The group was particularly special I thought, we all got on really well, so it was delightful. Food amazing and the community really lovely to stay with. Didn't want to leave. Makes me want to see more of what you offer."

    "I am indeed very rested and rejuvenated. It was a really special week. Finca is incredible. The food was amazing, I couldn't have wanted more. Kate is a truly brilliant teacher, I feel I've been spoiled somewhat! And overall I think your service from start to finish has been excellent! So thank you very much. Definitely a great holiday and such good value for money, would definitely use yoga on a shoestring again and would love to go back to La Gomera."

    "This was a really wonderful trip. The accommodation was great. I didn't feel like a guest in hotel, but rather a welcome guest in Finca's community. The food was plentiful and delicious. Regarding the teaching or yoga practice. Kate is the most amazing person who just radiates peace. I loved the practice and felt really quite sad when I had to leave a day early. I look forward to travelling on another trip with YOAS soon."
