Surrounded by nature, with plenty of space to explore, this weekend will focus on deep relaxation and letting go as we retreat into stillness.

The accommodation is thoughtfully designed with a soothing and understated luxury that makes it easy to unwind and slip away from the everyday.

 

The programme

We will enjoy carefully-tailored sessions of yoga, meditation and, most importantly, deep relaxation to refresh and restore the body and to reset and rebalance the mind. Over the course of the weekend you will be guided deeper into your own practice, aligning body and breath.

There will be mantra, meditations and special practices woven into the weekend, with a fire ceremony (weather permitting) to cleanse and purify. There will be opportunities to participate in workshops and group discussions if you wish too with Poppy and Jaan from re-balance.org as well as plenty of freedom to explore, rest and relax alone if you prefer.

Yoga sessions will be informed by but not limited to an Ashtanga lens and open to all levels and experiences with Sumiya's unique approach that blends traditional Eastern wisdom with a modern Western movement approach, with a touch of Tibetan magic around the edges

There are gardens and local countryside to explore, Specially-chosen holistic health treatments are available and can be booked on request. Delicious and nourishing organic, homemade vegetarian food will be served throughout the weekend.

Sumiya is so looking forward to hosting you there as we retreat, in the true sense, into stillness.
