New Year Yoga Retreat

Dec 29 - Jan 1 2018

A New Year Yoga Retreat to honour another year in idyllic surroundings with great facilitators offering, yoga, meditation, pranayama, music, singing and massage.

Also on offer are beautiful countryside walks, delicious wholesome organic food, fireside chats and quiet time to contemplate, new friends to meet and space to simply be.

Book early to make sure you can join us to mindfully mark the transition from 2018 into the New Year. Come and celebrate love, life and friendship –  on your own or with your friends, either way you’re guaranteed to have a special time and begin 2019 with a clear mind, an open heart and a rejuvenated spirit… what better way to start the year!


This retreat will be an opportunity for you to have some quiet time, space and reflection, alongside a morning and evening programme of yoga, pranayama, meditation and will be space to reflect and and reset for the new year.

We will open the day with meditation and pranayama, followed by a 2 hour asana class between 8 and 10am. A delicious breakfast will then be served with free time and lunch to follow.

We will then meet again in the afternoon for a more restorative and gentle yoga practise. The day will close with singing and evening meditation. There will be a special dinner and an opportunity to chant, meditate and share by the log fire on New Year’s Eve.


Participants are welcome to offer talks or workshops over the 4 days which we will try to fit into our schedule. Spontaneity is very likely. This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga.
