Why do a yoga retreat?

We have just retuned from our annual yoga retreat in the beautiful Eden Valley.

It was wonderful…

Going on retreat is an important part of a yogi’s study. In fact its important for everyone as it provides a context, a moment, a space in which stop, look inwards and simply be.

This simple change of perspective is supported and fostered  by being with others who are doing the same and with a teacher who understands how to guide you there.

The power and impact of this time spent on yourself cannot be underestimated. It allows you to let your outer world fall away so that you can re-engage with your inner world. That is the part of you that knows who you are, where you are and what you should be doing.

That is why people leave our retreats feeling inspired, motivated, refreshed and energised.

They have caught sight of their real lives.

They have remembered who they are.

They then return to their everyday and make a real difference.

Our next retreat is 23rd June 2017. 

 Read what this year’s yogis had to say about the retreat:

I thought the food was absolutely fantastic, 10/10 – and so much of it!!  Much, much better than I had expected, and it was the type of vegetarian food that still appeals to meat eaters as it was substantial and full of flavour. I was very pleasantly surprised and I loved the style of yoga we did; it seems to be much more suited with the meditation and mindfulness aspects of the retreat. 


I felt it was a very comfortable atmosphere, which engendered a relaxed and confident ambience. There was never any pressure, just support and encouragement. This was my first retreat, I didn’t know what to expect, but dreaded being “out of my depth” and at the mercy of ridicule. This was quickly and resoundingly dispelled.

…certainly value for money. Given the quality of the tuition and the accommodation and food, the retreat is excellent value. 


 Mick is a sympathetic, attentive and effective teacher who presented a good balance between meditation, talks and postures, which made for an enjoyable and informative weekend.

The location of the venue was excellent, being quiet and beautiful – the walk I did on Saturday afternoon over the open countryside at the back of the venue was memorable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was plentiful and good.


The food was delicious and plentiful (I put 3 lbs on!) and so much choice to cater for all tastes. The staff were so friendly and very attentive and made me feel un-rushed so could eat leisurely.
