Built in 1532 as a stately home, this magnificent manor house is a short train ride from London, surrounded by 73 acres of gardens in beautiful Kent countryside. Oxonhoath opened in 1999 as a retreat and conference centre with two bright and beautiful spaces for yoga classes and 26 bedrooms from the grand Master Suites to the smaller rooms which were formerly the servants quarters.
Dina and Norman, both Senior teachers with 20 years experience, will be leading sessions in both studios, giving guests a choice of styles during the 3 yoga sessions per day: Pranayama and Meditation early morning, Dynamic Vinyasa or Ashtanga mid-morning, and yin/restorative/yoga nidra before dinner.
I have been running these Easter indulgences at Oxonhoath for the last 10 years during which time it has been lovingly restored from ‘shabby chic’ to 4* fabulous.
The grounds include a walled garden, a lake and of course the extensive lawns.
This retreat will be lead by two teachers: Myself (Dina Cohen) and Norman Blair
