Full Description

The historic Bloomsbury House, elegant and comfortable in decor, only an hour or so from Central London is a chance to escape into the wild of the hills and breathe clean air, far from any roads or pollution.

All sessions will be candlelit and fireside with wonderfully framed views across the landscape. The emphasis will be on kindly helping to restore your equilibrium post-party season and start the New Year, cleaner, more energised for a more connected, uplifted sense of wellbeing.

Wonderful empathic yoga teacher, Louise Gillespie Smith, will be guiding you through a mindful based yogic process.

Hatha Yoga - The first session will be a grounding and restorative practice. You will be invited to let go of tension and reconnect in preparation to work through your cleanse. The classes will then focus on specific yoga poses to aid in the detoxification process: Plenty of twists, side bends and a variety of poses to help return you to a calmer flow. Pranayama sessions to help boost the lungs and clear your mind.

Walking - There will be ample free-time scheduled to explore and hike the many paths over the hills. We suggest a variety of mood boosting routes for you with super views across the sea, that both uplift and inspire. Walk in the shoes of the Bloomsbury Group who chose this landscape to nurture their creativity. Where we 49514 06706

Food - We see food not as something which needs to be withdrawn from the cleansing process but essential nourishment-as-fuel in order to sustain us through a cleanse. Be assured we’re committed to using plant based whole foods in our menus when making what we call ‘smart food”. The menu will be wheat, diary and sugar free and vegetarian. Meals will be a balanced mix of nuts, grains, pulses and veggies.

Sauna - A spell in the Sauna in our healing garden will warm you and help sweat-out toxins from your body more rapidly, whilst you kick-back and doze to the sound of birdsong.

Massage* - We will be joined by a fully trained masseur briefed to offer deep tissue massage using a fusion of healing botanical based oils. This is a must for those serious in supporting their systems through lymphatic drainage. Advance booking required. *Massages are all charged as extra and cost £55-£60/hr.

Goody bag - On arrival you will be gifted a goody bag packed with tools to use over the will include a journal for doodling your thoughts and process as you drift into consciousness, a soft natural body brush for you to use to help boost circulation and aid in removal of toxins. There will be a few products for you to pamper yourself with too.

Library - Our well stocked library of novels and interesting reference is a wonderful way to spend your free-time, perhaps curled up in a blanket whilst you rest. We have the usual boards games to play with if you’re feeling more sociable.

Light my fire - We’ll spark up a good fire outside* and suggest you take the opportunity to set intentions privately and offer them up to the sky. (*Weather permitting).

Gumboots and outdoor gear is essential. You are of course encouraged to bring whatever you need to help you nurture your soul. Running shoes, a bicycle, paintbox for painting or charcoals for drawing, headphones for Fav TED talks or Desert Island disc downloads. Its a space for you to reconnect, pause and be.
