Friday 11 - Monday 14 October 2019

Come and cosy up for a weekend of nurturing, restorative Yoga snuggled in the tranquillity of ancient woodlands only a short stroll from dramatic cliffs and hidden coves.

 

This special Yoga retreat will warm the embers of your heart and soothe the muscles of your mind!  

 

"Thank you so much for all the lovely touches that you brought to our time...the opening and closing ceremonies as well as your loving kindness... I came away changed - lighter - more in tune." Clare

Yoga Weekend Overview

Arrive from 4pm Friday and drop the world till departure on Monday morning at 10am.  

 

Friday evening will include group introductions and a welcome ceremony by candlelight, with some easeful Yoga to loosen out the knots and settle the mind.

 

Optional morning meditation sessions will be followed by a lazy breakfast and 1.5 hours of morning Yoga.  

 

Afternoons lend themselves to snoozing in comfy armchairs by the wood-burning fire,  finding a good book, chatting to new Yoga friends or venturing out to blow away the cobwebs on one of the most famous parts of Cornwall's ancient coast. 

 

We will also have the delight of our very own highly skilled masseuse offering a range of Ayurvedic and Aromatherapy massage (bookable in advance). 

 

Pre-dinner Yoga will be tailored to the group with a range of options including focusing on breath, particular parts of the body and /or deep relaxation.

Food

We know just how important meals and nourishment are to the whole retreat experience so we've taken great care to find the best local chef to take care of us.

 

Mealtimes will be a feast of delicious organic whole-food dishes - think mouth-watering veggie mains and hand-baked puds, with yummy homemade cakes and afternoon tea - eat as much or as little as you like.

 

Vegan, gluten free and other dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice.  Please let us know on booking if this applies to you.

"It was such a treat to have wholesome veggie food that really tickled the taste buds!  And all the wonderful cake and puddings (optional of course) made me feel I could indulge a little too.  Really nice to have that balance of healthy walks, nature and Yoga with good honest food." Ruth

Location

Just 15 minutes from Penzance (trains straight to London Paddington, connecting services via Plymouth to Bristol and beyond) and less than an hour from Newquay International Airport.

 

Only 10 minutes to Lands End, the stunning Porthcurno beach with its famous white sand and turquoise waves and the equally renowned Sennen Cove.

Accommodation

We will be the sole occupants of a beautiful detached country home, set in its own grounds and with our own private light  and spacious Yoga studio tucked into the gardens.  

 

The house was built at the turn of the last century for an artist and his family.  Stepping into its flagstone entrance hall it feels like being wrapped in a warm hug.  The house breathes history and you can sense the love and laughter of years gone by.

 

Rooms are available as singles, doubles or twins providing plenty of options to come alone, with partner, friends or siblings.

With a maximum group size of 10 be quick to register and claim yourself some essential me-time. For prices and  further details click the Book Here button above.

"Oh my gosh I just want to live here!! I felt so at home straight away. Miles away from daily pressure, even though I only live 40 miles up the coast! I love all the little touches and feeling the house's history over the generations." Beth

Extras / excursions

Wonderful food, accommodation and Yoga are all included in your weekend Yoga break.

 

During free time, you're welcome to explore locally and if enough people are interested we will happily organise a trip to the famous Minack Theatre nearby and / or to Sennen Cove and its art galleries and beachside cafes.
