Location & Date: Bicester, Oxfordshire. From 27th-29th October 2017
Teacher: Louise Gillespie-Smith: Louise has spent time living at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala India learning their Hatha series and experiencing a full yogic life style. She has travelled around India extensively learning from different yoga teachers and trained to teach Vinyasa Flow yoga in the foothills of the Himalayas. She is also a trained in trauma sensitive yoga which brings the therapeutic and mindfulness aspect of yoga to help heal sufferers of trauma and stress.
Her classes have a strong focus of heart opening, releasing emotions, acceptance and being present. She teaches a mixture of energising flow yoga and a slower mindful practice. Her intention is for her students to leave the class feeling peaceful and content with open hearts. She teaches in a light hearted and flexible way to cater for all levels, and I include pranayama and meditation.
Overview: Set in a pretty village in the heart of Oxfordshire in a grand luxuriously decorated Country House. Start each day with a silent walk in the countryside to awaken the senses followed by yoga twice daily, meditation and nourishing freshly prepared vegetarian food. We offer an afternoon walk on the Sunday and the Saturday is a time for you to rest and rejuvenate. In winter curl up in the cosy living room next to the log fire and read a great book or have a snooze. Enjoy a massage from one of our expert in-house therapists or just take time to rest and just be.
These weekend retreats are perfect for those who work as hard as they play and can never find the time to look after themselves. You will find time to relax and let go and leave feeling rejuvenated and uplifted.
Price: From £395 pp
