I am so excited to be heading back to this beautiful place to host a long weekend of yoga, stillness and community. Nestled in 700 acres of forrest in a secluded Somerset valley, we will have private use of the grounds, a dedicated meditation space and the amazing yoga yurt for our practices together.
Over the course of the long weekend, I will be guiding you through a programme of yoga and wellbeing to ensure that you leave with new tools to carry with you as well as giving you the space and opportunity to step away from the business of everyday life in this wonderful countryside venue.
We will be exploring our practice through dynamic and yin yoga with 2 classes per day (full days). Whether you are brand new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, there will be something for you. Meditation will be guided, and suitable for first-timers too. This whole experience is about you and providing you with opportunities to explore. Nothing is compulsory and everything is a an offering laid out for you to choose.
You will receive a full schedule upon arrival and all I ask is that you put your full trust into this experience. In return, I am making a commitment to each of you to put everything I know into making this a magical weekend.
To give you an idea of how the weekend will look, I have outlined an example schedule below as a guideline but it is subject to be adjusted.
