Join leading London Yoga teacher Jeff Phenix for a full schedule and spectrum of yoga practices at St Katherines, Parmoor, an historic Victorian Country Manor near Marlow in Buckinghamshire. The Parmoor estate, which dates back to the 15th century, was once owned by the Knights Templar and is situated in the picturesque and verdant Chiltern Hills. This peaceful, rural retreat is 30 mins by train from London and is set within lovely grounds, there are beautiful local walks and the fresh and delicious vegetarian food is is always of a high standard, with some ingredients coming straight from the estates walled garden. This special and unspoilt environment offers an ideal setting for spiritual practice and will give you the chance to immerse yourself in yoga, recharge and relax and enjoy the peaceful and natural surroundings.
Yoga classes take place in the large hall, an atmospheric space, with wood floor, characterful wood panelled walls, lovely natural light and views out onto the garden.
Arrival is on Friday afternoon from 4pm and our schedule together starts with a short evening yoga class at 6pm before dinner and an evening meditation afterwards. Saturday morning will begin with pranayama and meditation at 7.30am before breakfast and a longer more vigorous ‘yang’ style morning session from 10.30am until lunch at 1pm. You will then be free for a few hours to relax or explore the surrounding countryside before we have a mellower more ‘yin’ style class at 5pm. After dinner there will be a short meditation. Sunday morning will be the same format until we are free to leave after lunch re-charged and revitalised or stay a bit longer and enjoy the countryside.
All meals are vegetarian. Let us know if you have any food allergies.
