You will be attending daily yoga classes and meditation sessions during this retreat. Flowing, traditional Hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting, and a taste of philosophy. Typically, each class will last for two hours.

The days will begin with silent meditation, pranayama, and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. You will then have breakfast, followed by free time, massages, and then the afternoon yoga practice. In the evenings, there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema, and chanting.

    "Braziers park was such a wonderful weekend. I really can't say anything critical at all, the place was unique and cozy, the food was really impressive, the people were all friendly, the yoga was brilliant, the other activities were varied and fun (film, walks around house, chanting, time on one's own or chatting with new friends.)"

    "I wanted to say how grateful I am for having this opportunity of learning yoga from you. After the weekend at Braziers Park, I feel not only my body is stronger, and my mind more balanced and clear, there is definitely a shift towards other important change on my life journey. You have inspired me to go deeper into my yoga practice and spiritual quest. It was a very very special weekend. What else to add? Charming venue, good food, and nice company of other participants. The whole event was flawless only passed too quickly."

    "I liked repeating routines in a way where they didn’t have to be perfect the first time round, and then you learn to neaten it up as you go. I think I learn much faster this way. I loved the sessions, you are a great teacher!"

    "42 Acres is a magical heaven. The unintrusive cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up to date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough."

  • Review by Sarah Jane from Bristol, UK

    "Taking the beginners class offered here honestly changed my life. It provided me with a solid foundation onto which I could expand my own practice. I travel a lot with work and the course provided me with the confidence to dip in and out of different classes and not feel lost. I will be returning this summer to do the 'improvers course' and would wholeheartedly recommend any of these classes to any of my friends and family- the teachers are wonderful."

    "I really enjoyed it and I have to say that it was largely down to the skill of your facilitation and how well you work together. You both so clearly put happiness on the map from the beginning and it filtered through. Everyone relaxed and smiled! I loved the gentle humor too. I also appreciated all the hard work behind the scene and your attention to detail. You were both so generous and thoughtful."
