Yoga

Our classes on this bank holiday yoga retreat are really special, with natural light coming in to the purpose built, high ceiling yoga shala. You can really start to harness the energy and new beginnings.

The morning classes will be heart opening and creative flow sequences in conjunction with pranayama (control of breath). Along with with mantra, mudra, bandha sound healing.

They are suitable for all and our approach to yoga is to help you become the full ‘you’. The classes will end with a deeply restful and soothing meditation and sivasana. Allowing you leave the class lighter and full of vitality (and ready for brunch).

Spend the day walking in the abundant countryside or treating yourself to a holistic treatment. Our restorative yoga sessions in the evening are the perfect opportunity to deeply relax and unwind.

All of our food is gently detoxing and we cater to various dietary preferences. Our guests are always impressed by our creative, flavoursome dishes — that’s because the food is just as important to us as the yoga.
