Taking time out is a vital part of improving quality of life. A day retreat is an ideal way to step off the conveyor belt and make the most of some precious me-time in a peaceful atmosphere, recharge and nourish body and soul.
The morning yoga practice will allow you to connect body, breath and mind with a beautiful flowing, grounding Hatha yoga practice to lift energy levels and boost vitality. The restorative afternoon yoga practice will be floor-based and combine Yin yoga poses with guided meditation and Yoga Nidra to promote complete relaxation. Suitable for all levels of experience, including those newer to yoga.
The Abbey is a spiritual retreat and well-being centre, housed within a beautiful English medieval Manor. It offers a uniquely peaceful place for retreat and rejuvenation.
Our yoga practice will take place in the magnificent Great Hall, which has a beautiful timber vaulted ceiling, wooden floor, an open-fireplace, and french windows opening to a large lawn where we will take our morning practice outdoors if the weather allows. There are also two sitting rooms and a library where you can choose to relax during the day.
The Abbey grounds cover a little over four acres. The grounds are filled with trees, shrubs and flowers making it the perfect place to enjoy a walk and there are many sheltered spots to sit and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Lunch will be vegetarian and prepared from fresh ingredients, including home-grown produce from the kitchen garden when possible. Special dietary requirements can be catered for. Self-service refreshments are available in the dining room throughout the day.
