Weekend Retreat

Fairfield House 8-10 April 2016

My first yoga retreat of 2016 is at a beautiful old house in Williton near Watchet, in Somerset. A weekend of complete yogi self-indulgence, relaxation and revitalisation. The house is perfectly set up for a yoga retreat with a purpose built yoga/meditation room where we will have all our yoga and meditation sessions. The house has 5 bedrooms and each room has twin beds so you will be sharing with one other person. If you book with a friend or family member then of course I will make sure you are in the same room. Each room has been individually designed with calming, meditative colours and soothing decor. There is also an indoor sauna and a hot tub in the garden for you to use throughout the retreat. Included in your retreat weekend is deliciously home-cooked vegan food, all made by Shruti, the owner of Fairfield House. Every day we will have a buffet breakfast including homemade sourdough bread, sugar-free jams and nut butters, a variety of healthy and nutritious cereals, non-dairy milk and fruits. Lunch and dinner are also served buffet style so you can help yourself to as much or as little food as you want depending on your appetite. During the weekend we will have morning and afternoon/evening yoga classes including meditation, breathing exercises and relaxation. I will also talk a little bit about the philosophy of yoga. As in all of my classes you can do as much or as little as you want, taking the weekend at your own pace and being mindful of your own body, mind and breath. During the weekend there will be a chance to go on a coastal walk in the local area. There is also an option to have a massage in the spa room.

The cost of the weekend is £250 and that includes all your meals, 2 x nights at the house, all your yoga and meditation classes and use of the hot tub and sauna.

If you wish to have a massage then it’s an extra £40 for a 1 hour full body massage.

A £50 deposit will secure your place on this retreat.

Moroccan Retreat

Essaouira 10-17 September 2016

My second yoga retreat of 2016 is a 7 night retreat in Essaouira, a small coastal town three hours from Marrakesh in Morocco. Morocco is a very magical place full of culture, vibrancy and colour. I travelled to Morocco for the third time last year and travelled to Essaouira for a day trip. I fell in love with everything that it had to offer, the narrow alleyways where you can barter for some traditional Moroccan goods, the wind and the rough seas, the smells, the colours and the noises. 9 km away from the busy streets of Essaouira, nestled away within nature, will be our riad (traditional style house) for the week. Within the riad are 6 bedrooms each unique in style that have been designed and decorated to ensure maximum comfort during your stay. The riad is centred around relaxation, well-being, calm and tranquility. Surrounding this beautiful retreat space are a courtyard, gardens and terraces, as well as a forest of eucalyptus trees, along with the massage cabin and an outdoor swimming pool.

During your 7 night stay you will enjoy morning dynamic yoga practice in the sunshine by the pool or on the rooftop terrace, and more restorative, calming yoga at sunset. I will be teaching different meditation, relaxation and breathing techniques and will also be talking about some of the history and philosophy of yoga. There will be plenty of free time to relax and enjoy the riad’s swimming pool and relaxing surroundings. We will also have a chance to go in to the centre of Essaouira, which is about 12-15 mins taxi ride away and a £7 fare each way, as a group or individually/small groups, to explore what the area has to offer and maybe do a bit of cheeky shopping!

Included in your stay at the riad will be your transfer to and from the airport in Marrakesh, traditional Moroccan breakfast, lunch and dinner every day apart from one lunch and dinner, when we will have the opportunity to go out and try some of the local restaurants in Essaouira. The food will be mostly vegetarian with the option of fish, and if anyone is vegan then it can be accommodated. During your stay you will have a traditional Moroccan scrub and massage within the massage room.

The cost for the 7 x nights is £745

Not included: 1x lunch 1x dinner, taxis to and from Essaouira, flights are not included in the price but at the moment there are return flights from Bristol to Marrakesh for £108 flying with easyJet, so if we can all try and get on the same flight that would be perfect.

A deposit of £150 will secure your place on this retreat.
