Type of Event
October 8 - 15 and October 16 - 22
Autumn is a time of great change, the weather cools, days shorten, wind and rain are common. It is a time for us to fortify ourselves to prepare for the winter months. The routine of yoga practice, deeply nourishing breath work and meditation, healthy warming foods and fresh outdoor walks are all a feature of these retreats. The retreats will explore the quietening and restorative qualities of yoga, as well as allowing guests plenty of time to connect with themselves.
Each week includes two yoga classes per day, meditation practice, pranayama and yoga nidra, three wholesome meals eah day, plus dinner upon arrival and breakfast before departure and transfer from the local bus station. We also fire up our wood burning hot tub at the end of each week for stargazing and relaxing tired yoga muscles. The Autumnal theme will inspire the food prepared for these weeks, with lots of wholesome, warming soups, homemade oatcakes and warm grain salads.
