19th- 21st May 2017

Near Wells, Somerset



We're so excited to be bringing you this amazing retreat! Rediscover your 'Me Time' by immersing yourself in a weekend of dynamic and restorative yoga, mindfulness, and delicious nourishing food.

We all know how easy it is to get overwhelmed by work, tasks at home, and everything else that life throws us. When this happens, usually it's our Me Time that's the first thing to go; we skip lunch, miss yoga and don't have time for friends or ourselves. With this in mind, we have carefully and lovingly prepared a fantastic schedule to be the ultimate weekend of self care. We are delighted to be holding the retreat in a breathtaking venue surrounded by beautiful countryside; the perfect place to unwind, refresh and refocus.





We will be staying in a beautiful converted Gothic church built in 1838. Situated in a peaceful village, surrounded by countryside in the magical heart of Somerset and just a 2 hour drive from London or Oxford, and 35mins from Bristol. The accomodation boasts charming shared and private rooms, a large cosy living room with a glass wood burning stove, as well as a hot tub! We will have a dedicated yoga space on the gallery, in front of the stunning original stained glass. The church is a truly unique venue, retaining many period features, with views as far as the mystical Glastonbury Tor and the Isle of Avalon.
