A Boathouse to relax by and enjoy fabulous views in the August Summertime, immerse yourselves in undisturbed nature…perhaps you'll spot the family of Beavers settled in on the grounds.

 

Stunning accommodation is on an eco-friendly solar and organic regenerative farm, and nestled in 173 acres of countryside designed for sustainable slow living. Switch off, practice a range of yoga forms and eat delicious meals cooked with local organic produce. In your free time explore your surroundings, ramble in the countryside swim in the lake, or relax in the various different cosy nooks of the farmhouse. 

We have created a restful summer weekend for you to disconnect from your work or home stresses, have break from technology and experience slow living in a peaceful oasis.

 

Each day you will practice yoga in a yurt surrounded by ancient trees and endless panoramas of native wildlife like beavers, wild boar, pine marten, red deer, squirrel, hare, canada geese, kestrel, buzzard and much more….

About the Yoga 

Your yoga retreat classes take place in our large beautiful yoga yurt that is separate from all the accomodations. Your morning Yoga sessions will be longer than the afternoon sessions to give you space and time to go deeper. Some will be workshop style with partner work, so you can explore aspects of your practice in detail. Some will be nurturing and super slow Somatic movement. There will be a variety of styles and forms interwoven to explore and nourish your body mind and breath. Our joint teaching and expertise is suitable for everyone, including beginners. Meditation practice will be offered in the early morning before main practice, and the day will close in an immersive Yoga Nidra.

 

All practices are your choice to dip in and out of to suit your mood and energy.
