Friday 6th July – Sunday 8th July – 2018

 

This venue in rural Norfolk really is the most perfect antidote to wellness, nourishment, inspiration, relaxation, freedom and profound healing from the inside out.

After the wonderful success of our 2017 weekend retreat this year at this exceptional venue of West Lexham, we didn’t need much persuasion to collaborate and share our combined teaching skills here again and booked for April of next year. However what we didn’t expect was that it would sell out within 2 weeks of us promoting it.

We have therefore now booked another date, this time for the summer-time next year.

During the summer months, this retreat centre is an absolute haven, you will experience breath-taking views, acres of floating water meadows, ancient trees, lakes and formal gardens for you to explore at your leisure. These surroundings invite space and reflection, you will easily be encouraged to let go of your daily life and deeply connect back to nature and the feeling of yourself and perhaps you will feel empowered to make new personal intentions.

Our gorgeous venue is formed of luxury en-suite bedrooms built around a central courtyard, in an expanse of countryside. These old barns have been converted maintaining the original beams, lime and flint walls and the design has been modelled on big open spaces offering a blend of both traditional and contemporary. Handmade furniture and under-floor heating in the bedrooms and yoga studio are fired by the biomass boiler burning local, environmentally-managed wood chip. Roof-top solar panels ensure the whole site is run almost 100% on renewable energy.Barn2

Hopefully we will be able to soak up some summer sunshine and enjoy a picnic of afternoon tea on the Saturday afternoon and we also may be able to practice yoga outside within the tranquility of our surroundings – weather permitting.
