Arriving at 4pm you will have a guided tour around the beautifully tranquil venue and get acquainted with your room. We will all meet in our yoga space forming a welcome circle, introducing ourselves and getting to know one another. You will be greeted to the circle with a cup of joy before diving into a calming evening together filled with blissful yoga, meditation, delicious food and community.
Starting the morning with a meditation before filling our boots with some delicious breakfast. There will be a selection of food to choose from, so guaranteed to get your taste buds tingling and if you are anything like us wanting your coffee fix in the morning will not be a problem, as a professional coffee machine will be on site with a professionally trained barista!
After our breakfasts have gone down, we shall begin our hours yoga practise finding balance and peace on and off the mat allowing you to settle into a day of free time to spend doing what your heart desires! Maybe head out for a walk in the beautiful grounds, get your massage or simply put your feet up and get lost into a good book!

The massages will be spread over the weekend and you will be given your allotted time once you have arrived at the retreat. You will receive a professional 30 minute back and head massage, given to you by the wonderful Momma JuJu who will allow your body to drop into a state of bliss.
We will be serving Vegan and gluten free food through the whole weekend, I promise that all of the meals will be delicious and you will not go hungry. My life's mantra is "food is love" so I am excited to share with you some classic homemade dishes with a twist that will leave you satisfied and nourished. If you have any food allergies please let me know in advance so that we can alter accordingly.
Style of Yoga
In all of my classes I act as a guide and you take full control of what your body would like to do, it's your practice and your body, you know your body better than anyone else ever could. I focus on self-love and compassion towards ourselves, there is no judgement, no expectations, all I ask is that you find what feels good, follow your curiosity and above all have fun - we'll laugh, smile and not take ourselves too seriously.
I offer a playful variation of vinyasa starting with a mindful meditation to set an intention for our practice ahead. This gives us space to check in with how we feel in the current moment and respond to what the body and mind are in need of.
We then move gently, focusing on sensations in the body and begin to find a flow. This will allow us to become completely present moving as one with our breath and body, finding curiosity, support and laughter. We will end the class by slowing the movements back down, tapping into our parasympathetic nervous system and finding peace in stillness whilst inviting all our senses to the present moment and dropping into a state of bliss and gratitude.
Life is all about balance, we will also enjoy this time to take it slow, to reconnect back to ourselves, to recharge our batteries. We will spend the whole class taking slower movements, fully appreciating our bodies and what they are capable of, releasing any events or thoughts from the week that are holding us back and welcoming in the new. Ending in shavasana with blankets and pillows and fluffy socks, fully nourished and cocooned in love.
