Moving from the light and warmth of summer into the cooler, darker autumn and winter months is not always easy.
Through this retreat we will recognise that all of life is part of a never-ending cycle and here we have the opportunity to acknowledge new beginnings in the midst of endings.
Nature is getting ready to let go and move into a time of rest and renewal. Can we follow her wisdom and accept this period of release to turn inwards, to nurture new dreams and new seeds of intentions?
Through yoga, mindfulness, breathwork and connections with nature, we will let go of what’s no longer needed within, create space in the mind and body and kick start our innate healing capacities.
Allow yourself to be held in a safe space to explore the wisdoms of the body, mind and Mother Nature to create greater calm, freedom and lasting happiness. As we learn to keep in harmony with the seasons, we naturally encourage a flow and ease to return.
No experience necessary, just a love of nature and readiness to journey inwards.

Our practices will take place inside the stunningly beautiful, handcrafted yurt as well in the meadows and around the lake outside.
Soak up the peace and quiet of this unique location and allow it to bring you home to yourself.
'A priceless gift'
This full-day retreat will begin with welcome warming tea and a settling meditation to ground and become present, to set intentions and recognise where we are at this time. We’ll move slowly into a soft flowing yoga practice to gently open the body and awaken subtle energies and we’ll complete the morning with a kirtan session. Kirtan is the yoga of sound and a form of meditation that effortlessly quietens the mind and opens the heart to bring us into a state of calmness, bliss, joy and connection.
We’ll then enjoy a homemade yummy lunch before heading out to the meadows and woodland outside for mindful walking (barefoot optional!). Once we’d had our fill of Nature, we’ll journey back to the comfort of the yurt to enjoy a deeply nourishing yin and restorative yoga session followed by a powerful yoga nidra (lying down meditation). To top off the day we will close with meditation and pranayama as well as reflections over tea and sweet treats.
Absolutely no experience necessary, just an open mind and a love of Nature!
