A retreat to restore and renew in a beautiful old country house: join experienced gentle yoga teacher Chris Holt for a weekend in the heart of Chilterns: 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 on Sunday afternoon. 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 ability to find a balance between effort and ease. There will also be evening yoga nidra (deep relaxation), a guided walk bonfire, and plenty of time in between sessions to relax, or have a massage.

Gently and safely taught, the weekend is suitable for yogis wanting to expand the subtlety of their awareness within postures and to see what happens when they quieten and go within.

Hearty vegetarian meals, including afternoon tea, included. Single or shared rooms available. Braziers Park was the childhood home of Bond author Ian Fleming. It is now run as a non-religious community exploring sustainable living. A very warm welcome guaranteed whether retreating alone or with friends.
