FULLY BOOKED COTSWOLDS
YOGA RETREAT WEEKEND
10th - 12th NOVEMBER 2023
Join me for a weekend designed entirely for you - dedicated time to nurture yourself inside and out. To help you reset your body and mind. To give you the opportunity to reset and receive a boost.
You will be given that all important precious time and space to relax, recharge, awaken and reconnect to you.
Through the many, many wonderful tools of Yoga, movement, breathwork, rest and meditation, good wholesome food... not to mention the fresh air, surrounded by glorious open countryside, luxurious accommodation... I promise it will be a weekend not to miss!
OUR HOME FOR THE WEEKEND
Situated in a beautifully peaceful and tiny Cotswold village, hidden deep in the countryside, our home for the weekend is spread over three modern barn conversions, directly opposite from each other. Each barn is beautifully furnished with an open plan feel making them ideal for our weekend. We have 4 spacious lounges to choose from, 3 with log burners, perfect for November. We have a lovely open dining space where we can share good wholesome food altogether. All bedrooms, available either as a twin or king size, depending on your preference, have their own individual bathroom. All rooms have been decorated and furnished to an exceptional standard, providing you with a luxury space in which to retreat. There is underfloor heating throughout and lovely large windows inviting the beautiful countryside into our home.
This is such a special place and is the perfect escape, with all of the comforts you could ever need; inviting lounges with plush sofas, warming wood fires and even some friendly Alpacas in a nearby field!
This really is a place to retreat and be - you will find just the spot for some peace, or time to enjoy a hot drink with fellow retreat friends.
The village also has a web of footpaths to follow and explore the surrounding area. The village itself has just 32 cottages - the same size now as it was in the Doomsday Book of 1086. It has that feel of pure escapism. Very peaceful and instantly relaxing.
Our accommodation boasts beautifully styled bedrooms which have been individually decorated and carefully styled. Each bedroom has sumptuous soft furnishings and luxurious bedding. Whatever you choose, you can be sure of comfort, luxury and privacy.
Each bedroom is available as twin beds (or king size if you prefer) and each room has it's own modern bathroom.
Throughout our weekend you will enjoy, wholesome and delicious food that will have been planned and prepared to ensure you are provided with all the nutrients your body needs for this time of year.
Expect a hearty breakfast, a lovely light lunch and a delicious evening meal, plus a little afternoon tea and cake - just because you deserve it!!
We also have the option on Sunday to join together for a Sunday lunch at a fabulous nearby pub.
This retreat is all about nurturing and nourishing you, finding your feel good. Let me take you on a delicious journey of Yoga to help you do just that.
We start our mornings with meditation, breathwork and gentle unwinding and releasing movement - a sumptuous awakening before breakfast. Mid morning we liven things up with some hatha flow, stretching, strengthening and warming the body, revitalising you for the day ahead. A late afternoon oozy practice ahead of dinner that is designed to help you unwind, release tension and maybe drool a little! Post dinner we have a chance to find time to sit or recline over bolsters for a soothing meditation and breathwork, designed to slow you down and deliver you off for a blissful night's sleep.
All yoga will be suitable for all, from beginners to intermediate to advanced. Everyone is welcome.
We have a beautiful and spacious dedicated yoga space filled with natural light and best of all, underfloor heating! This is a 3 minute walk from our accommodation through the peaceful village.
We arrive from 5 pm on Friday with our opening yoga class starting at 6 pm.
We then join together for dinner at 7.30 pm.
On Sunday, departures are from midday or why not stay a little longer and enjoy a Sunday lunch in a local pub (at an additional cost) with me and your fellow guests plus an optional group walk before your journey home.
Our days will roll like our yoga classes do, a slow flow blend of movement and relaxation that makes the most of the stunning location we are in. You have time to retreat off by yourself for a walk or for a read, or a soak in the bath or a long shower should you choose. Or equally, with 3 lounges to choose from, you have the opportunity to socialise.
We are in the most beautiful of areas and there are many walks around from our doorstep. You can be as adventurous or relaxed as you wish.

We will be staying on a 1500 acre family farm estate up on the Cotswold Hills with footpaths that appreciate the surrounding beautiful scenery that changes with each season and the pattern of farming. The farm has wonderful wildlife, and the village, with just 32 cottages is the same size now as it was in the Doomsday Book of 1086.
The Village is only 3 miles from Bourton on the Water (although it feels so far removed from everywhere), and within reach of many well known Cotswold villages and towns, from Upper and Lower Slaugher and the Swells, to Bibury and Cheltenham.
