FRIDAY 9 – SUNDAY 11 MARCH 2018

Join me for a luxurious two night retreat in a gorgeously stylish farmhouse and contemporary barn which are nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds. Indulge in twice daily yoga, nourish your body with delicious healthy food, relax and unwind in the hot tubs, put on your wellies and explore the glorious countryside or just simply snuggle up with a good book. Whatever the weekend holds in store you’ll leave feeling restored and energised.

THE VENUE

We’ll be staying in a gorgeous farmhouse and barn which offer luxury accommodation to the highest standard. With a stunning farmhouse kitchen, cosy living rooms, a games room, two hot tubs and beautifully finished bedrooms with White Company toiletries and bed linen, you’ll be in complete comfort. There’s also a private garden with a footpath which will lead you out into the glorious Oxfordshire countryside.

THE YOGA

There will be four Hatha Yoga sessions over the weekend, including meditation, pranayama and asana.  The morning sessions will be more dynamic to awaken the body and mind ready for the day ahead. The evening sessions will be gentle and restorative to allow the body and mind to soften and release. The retreat is suitable for all experience levels, including beginners.

THE FOOD

Our gorgeous chef Rachael will be with us preparing delicious healthy feasts. All meals will be freshly prepared, vegetarian and low in gluten and refined sugar. The weekend will be the perfect opportunity to nourish and replenish your body, so that you leave feeling completely refreshed and rejuvenated. Any special diets can be catered for; please advise me of any specific requirements when booking.

THE TREATMENTS

My favourite therapists, including Peony Beauty & Wellbeing and Wellbeing with Alison, will be coming to the farmhouse to offer a wide range of wellbeing and beauty treatments during the weekend. These will be available at an extra cost and you will be able to book these in advance of the weekend.

THE DAY PLAN

After a warm welcome on Friday evening there will be time to get settled in and enjoy some tea and cake. We’ll then have the first yoga practice of the weekend followed by a delicious vegetarian feast and then you can float off to bed! On Saturday and Sunday we’ll start the day with tea and healthy nibbles, followed by long yoga practice and a big brunch afterwards. After that there will be plenty of free time to read, relax in the hot tubs, walk or be pampered with treatments. There will be a light healthy lunch, followed by more free time. On Saturday after the evening yoga class we will have another delicious supper. Departure will be after lunch on Sunday.
