Nourish & Reignite

LATE SUMMER YOGA SANCTUARY IN KENT

Fri 20th - Sun 22nd September 2024

Embark on a magical and rejuvenating journey with us in the beautiful Kentish countryside. It's time to embrace a slower pace and find the nourishment your body and soul crave after the high-energy months of summer.

Autumn beckons us to turn inwards, to reflect on our experiences, and to reignite our inspiration as we prepare for the restorative season ahead.

Surrounded by lush gardens, tranquil ponds, and majestic willow trees, our retreat offers more than just a scenic backdrop. Here, we draw inspiration and alignment from the natural world around us. As we observe the rhythm of nature, we discover valuable insights for finding balance and embracing a slower pace of life.

Join us as we foster personal growth, expand the horizons of possibility, and cultivate a future that resonates deeply with your authentic self.

Together, we'll create a nurturing space to reconnect with your true desires. Through mindful movement, we'll realign our bodies, re-energize our spirits, and rediscover a sense of purpose and inspiration that will carry us through the autumnal journey ahead.

The venue

Our home for the weekend is a private estate set across 19 lush acres in the heart of Kent, the Garden of England, between fields and the stunning villages of Wickhambreaux and Ickham.

 

Wander through secret gardens and picturesque fields with vibrant flowers, verdant plants, majestic trees and tranquil ponds. Discover secluded havens for relaxation, inviting you to sink into hammocks or recline upon sun-drenched loungers, each offering a sanctuary for quiet contemplation. Between yoga sessions you can recharge in the Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub beneath the canopy of pine trees.

The country house is a magnificent mid-17th century Grade-II listed Elizabethan property, formerly the private home of rock royalty - the late Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac.

Easy to access by direct trains from King's Cross (54 min) and by car from London.
