This retreat combines yoga, mindfulness and countryside walking, and is designed to help you relax, stretch and detox.


St Katharine’s is a beautiful and peaceful space in Oxfordshire (only 30 mins by train from London) that serves delicious locally sourced vegetarian food. It is in the heart of the beautiful Chilterns near the buzzing market town of Marlow on the River Thames.


The weekend will include four 90-minute yoga classes taught by Sherin Shefik, who will mainly teach vinyasa flow yoga, but also combines lots of different styles of yoga into her teaching, (including yin, restorative, hatha, astanga, acro and partner yoga). Each class will be designed around one of four natural elements: earth (grounding), air (opening), fire (igniting) and water (letting go). The classes are suitable for all levels.


There are numerous mindfulness meditations, practices and discussions and yoga nidra, which will be led by mindfulness teachers Deborah Wharton and Shenel Shefik. There will be other diverse and exciting activities on the programme too, including countryside walks, poetry workshops, mindful dance, and a goal setting workshop. We have a qualified walk leader for countryside walks, and an excellent local practitioner of massage and reflexology can be booked in advance or on site for additional cost. All sessions are, of course, optional so you can pick and choose as you flow through the weekend.


The weekend starts at 10am on Friday morning and ends at noon on Sunday. The cost of this full weekend retreat is £400, (or £475 for a single ensuite room).

·       Short weekend from 6pm on Friday to noon on Sunday = £325
