Eat, Play, Love
Join us for a relaxing, restorative and uplifting weekend in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside.
We like to keep things simple on our retreats with a blend of feel-good movement and Yoga, nourishing food, massage, walks and plenty of time to rest. It’s all about taking time out for yourself to drop into a deeper place of being and connection.
Life is so busy and demands so much of us that this retreat is an invitation to slow down and enjoy time to rest, restore and deepen your connection with yourself.
The day includes two beautiful 90 minute movement classes and an evening guided meditation. These will all be a bespoke blend of Yoga, Pilates and Somatics that will help you to ease tension in the body and free up space in the mind and heart.
We are surrounded by beautiful countryside all around us to enjoy during short or long walks on your own or in company. Walking provides the time to reflect and gain new perspective whilst bathing in Vitamin Nature, and we all know how great we feel after time outdoors in the fresh air! A healthy snack and a hot cup of tea awaits you back home on your return.
There will be a choice of massage treatments available throughout the weekend and plenty of time to relax and simply be – a rare treat in itself. You may want to curl up on the sofa or in bed with a cup or tea and a book, catch up with a friend or have a sleep. The time is yours to enjoy it exactly as you wish.
This weekend will offer the opportunity to dive a little deeper into your Yoga practice, maybe even for the first time, and experience movement breath and meditation as one seamless process. We will use props like stretchy bands and balls, commonly used in Pilates, to offer support to the limbs during dynamic poses, for self massage and to incorporate an element of play and fun into the practice too.
The morning class will be more dynamic, incorporating plenty of spacious, flowing movements and holds. Whilst the evening class will be more restorative and grounded, focusing on finding freedom and ease in specific areas like the shoulders back and hips. These classes will be carefully balanced to support the whole being and be accessible to everybody involved.
In the evenings, there will be a Yoga Nidra ‘nightcap’ in the form of soothing breathwork and a relaxing guided mediation to end the day and send you into a restful and restorative nights sleep.
Claire is our food alchemist for the weekend and promises to delight you with her delicious and nourishing vegetarian/vegan meals. Claire is a passionate and creative chef and has a special talent for producing yummy treats that are actually really healthy too!
Everything will be lovingly prepared on site for you to enjoy food bursting with colour and flavour and where possible our ingredients will be locally sourced and in season. Claire will be happy to share her tips and tricks with you during the weekend and will leave you feeling inspired to experiment and try new things in the kitchen when you get home!
A stunning mid century modern bungalow will be our home for the weekend. It is a heart-filled home with spacious common areas including a lovely garden. The private outdoor pool (heated May – Sept) will be perfect for lounging around and cooling off during the Summer 2020 retreat, or for an uplifting and invigorating morning swim in the Winter and Spring!
Comfortable furnishings make for a cosy and welcoming space with areas for finding peace and quiet and areas to convene comfortably in groups.
This beautiful house has 6 bedrooms which can be arranged with twin or double beds. All bedrooms are homely, warm and tastefully decorated making you feel completely at ease. There are 2 bedrooms with en-suites, and two shared shower rooms.
