Find peace with a weekend in the Dorset countryside of guided and silent meditations, plus yoga to strengthen and stretch.
Mark the midsummer solstice with a weekend to nourish your body, mind and spirit. In a beautiful spot in the heart of the Dorset countryside slow down, quieten, and renew your inner resources. Leave feeling relaxed, de-stressed and ready for the world.

There will be eight meditation and yoga sessions starting early evening on Friday and finishing after lunch on Sunday. Morning practices will be more invigorating; evenings calming and restoring.

We will explore a range of meditation and pranayama (breath) practices; plus asana (postures) with an emphasis on developing the strength and flexibility to sit comfortably in meditation. There will also be periods of silence and evening yoga nidra (deep relaxation).

Gently and safely taught, the weekend is suitable for beginners or more experienced yogis and meditators wanting to experience a gentle approach to asana (postures) and time to quiten and go within.

As well as yoga, there will be time to treat yourself to a massage, sit around the bonfire, a walk in the beautiful Dorset countryside, or simply relax with a book or stare at the sky…
