Yoga retreat days

Summer Yoga Retreat Day
Join us on a hopefully gorgeous summer's day for sun salutations & an energising yoga flow to make us feel strong and alive. There will be options for everyone and we'll take the temperature of the day into account so none of us melt. We'll work with manipura chakra and breathing techniques to bring energy into our bodies, hearts and minds.
After a little break, we'll calm things down a bit with a mindful wander along the river or through the shady woods for forest bathing and mindfulness. This will provide an opportunity for silent wandering, treasure hunting or simply sitting and being.
Our walk will be up to 2 miles on paths through the forest. These are single track in places and can be uneven, so bring appropriate footwear for navigating roots and stones.
We hope to eat lunch outside, maybe starting with mindful eating and then dissolving into very chatty chat if you like.
Our afternoon will be spent in meditation and relaxation, with maybe a small workshop on something summery themed to give you some space to think about what you'd like to manifest in this high energy time of year.
Please bring your own colourful lunch, yoga mat, blanket and anything else you might need for your day. We'll provide teas and coffees and flapjacks as always!
£40 per person

Autumn Yoga Retreat Day
It is time to say thank you and goodbye to summer and welcome in wonderful autumn. We really love this time of year; to us it means soups & stews, fresh mornings, the sound & smell of rain, and evenings spent sitting outside by the fire.
This retreat day will combine yoga, mindfulness & qi gong and we will spend time indoors and out, really embracing the season.
After the high energy of summer, it’s important to now begin to slow down, rest and reflect. It’s like a harvest for our life over the last half year or so; what have we learned, loved, let go and embraced? What do we want to do more or less of? How can we take the very best care of every layer of us; body, mind & heart?
During our day we will learn how we can incorporate some small practices into our daily life to stay calm and centred. We will explore some yoga and mindful practices of body, mind & breath to bring about calm, warmth, energy or focus, depending on what we need at the time.
We will also guide you through a lovely long relaxation process that you can then repeat at home when you need a boost or to help you nod off to sleep.
These days give us some invaluable space to wind down and get back to who we really want to be.
Arrive anytime from 9.30 and get your little nest all set up with cushions, blankets and of course your yoga mat. Help yourself to a hot drink & a bit of chat with the other attendees and we will sit at 10am for yoga.
There will be a tea & wee break at some point, and then lunch about 1pm. Please bring something delicious you can eat at the indoor or outdoor tables with others or enjoy quietly on your own.
The day will cost £40 including hot drinks and our trademark flapjacks & cookies.
