YOGA RETREATS & WEEKEND BREAKS

FINDING REFUGE in the NOW...

" Do not wait for life. Do not long for it. Be aware, always and at every moment, that the miracle is in the here and now. " ~ Marcel Proust

21- 23 MAY 2021 | NORFOLK

About the retreat

Act on your Life - Find Yourself - Nurture your Capacity to be Present

You create your life by what you do, right where you are and right in the moment that you are in. Life does not exist when you think about what might happen next or what once it was. The possibility of acting and changing your life is present only in the NOW, in any moment that you find yourself in. Thinking yourself into a rich, whole, dignified life with no action is an illusion. You have to do something to make it true; and here, your mind can be either your greatest friend or your worst enemy.

Learning to take refuge in the present moment can be a powerful way to retrain our minds so that we can be present, show up, and do what matters right where we are and right where we can act to make a difference in our lives.

To make this experience real, escape with me to the beautiful West Lexham, Norfolk retreat hideaway in the countryside for a nurturing weekend of yoga, meditation, guided deep relaxation, exquisite food experience, wandering in nature, sound healing, unwinding in the gardens, on the boating lake and in the swimming pool, time to reflect in silence, disconnection & re-connection, letting go and laughter.

 

This weekend-away will inspire you to honour yourself, and will give you an opportunity to reconnect to your inner & outer universe in a more balanced and purposeful way. I am offering you a ground where you can find many possibilities to take a refuge to be fully present in a day-to-day life where you can not easily tune into this mode without distraction. This is a ground where you may transform yourself into a stronger person by developing skills to boost your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strength & resilience while discovering your limits and meeting beautiful like-minded people.

 

The retreat is designed to give you time and space for inspiration to feed your creativity. There is plentiful free time for you to connect with yourself, reflect, journal, walk, meditate and consciously and fully rest.

Location & Venue

West Lexham, Norfolk

Our space this time is an award winner, handcrafted, signature venue in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. A family run business, run to the highest ethical standards. A haven where you can connect with yourself, each other and nature. Just 45min drive to the Norfolk Coast AONB.

There’s a space to rest, relax, feeling nourished and nurtured for every head, ladies & gents in all abilities -beginner to advanced-, whether you want to join yoga & meditation classes with me, to connect with many like minded people from your local area or to explore the grounds on your own to enjoy 22 acres of garden walks, lawns, boating lake, swimming pool, tennis court and fire circles.

Yoga & Meditation

Yoga on this weekend-away is open to all levels and all genders!

AM sessions will be a mixture of mindful and energising movement to awakening the body to its full potential with carefully designed sequences weaving in a variety of asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), concentration practices, elements of yogic philosophy, mantras and more.

 

PM sessions will be mellow, soothing and nurturing practices, delving into areas such as restorative yoga, yoga nidra, sound healing and meditation to promote a deep and restful sleep.

 

Although I would like to encourage you to attend each- and every session, they all are optional to join and will be adapted to the individual needs. Variations of the poses will be offered to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and individual attention.

 

Basic yoga equipment such as mat, block, bolster, belt, blanket are provided but I recommend you to bring your own kit for extra comfort - especially for restorative afternoon sessions.

OUTSIDE OF CURRICULUM ACTIVITIES & TREATMENTS

Aside from yoga and meditation sessions, you will have plenty of time to - rest, read, journal, play tennis, perhaps swimming (weather permitted), connect with like-minded people as well as for daily walks in the gardens and countryside!

You will also have a chance to book complimentary treatment, personal sound healing session and / or massage!

Please note that personal treatments are not included to the packages and must be booked and paid separately. I strongly advise to book your treatment early to avoid disappointment as there are limited time slots available. Contact me for more details.
