Full Description

Braziers Park is a community, a residential college and an architectural treasure hidden deep in the south Oxfordshire countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It was founded in 1950 as an educational trust. Community members share responsibility for running the mansion house (a Grade II* listed building), 55 acres of land, organic kitchen garden and livestock, facilitating courses and organising events assisted by visiting volunteers from around the world.

There will be morning & evening Yoga classes. Guided mindfulness Meditation, Pranayama ( Ancient Yogic breathing techniques) & relaxation ( Yoga nidra ) in the evenings. There will be plenty of opportunity to socialise and meet like minded people. If you’re an outdoors person, you can walk and explore the wild beauty of the woodland countryside during your stay. It also offers a cosy haven for anyone who wishes to chill out by the real log fire or tuck yourself away in the study to read a book or have a massage/one on one yoga session ( extra cost) You’ll be eating delicious organic and homegrown, vegetarian food.

My retreats attract every level of practitioner. I always have a mixture of people attending. I can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of Yoga varies too as I’ve trained in quite a few disciplines, such as Sivananda ( Hatha style ) and Ashtanga. I really work with the feel of the group and meet the needs and requirements of my class participants in that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.

We'll be starting with a 2 hour yoga & meditation session on Friday night to ease us into the weekend, followed by dinner. Yoga will be held in the drawing room. In the classes, I will be giving personal adjustments to correct postures and guiding you through the breath ( pranayama ) and meditation. Please bring your own mats. Thank you :)
