Join us for this special New Year wellness retreat to pamper the body and mind.

This relaxing day retreat combines yoga, meditation, guided relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and wellness/goal setting sessions to provide you with a blissful day of pampering and relaxation. A little me-time to start the new year with a focus on self-care. We will help you to reduce stress, clear the mind, recharge the batteries  and even set goals for the year ahead. Choose from a luxury facial treatment to relax the facial and shoulder muscles or a non touch Pranic Healing treatment to remove your stress or a reflexology session.

NOTE: This retreat is now available for SATURDAY 19TH JANUARY 2019 only - Please do not book for Sunday 20th as this date is no longer running due to complications with the venue.


Delight in the vegan food, vegan certified nutrition information and a 10 minute luxury facial treatment to relax the facial and shoulder muscles or a 10 min non touch Pranic Healing treatment to remove your stress or a 10 minute reflexology session.


What Does the Retreat Include?

The retreat includes a carefully planned retreat day in this beautiful venue. There are two yoga sessions, a 1-2-1 treatment with Kate (see at the bottom for exact details on this), 2019 goal setting workshop, optional sleep, detox and mindfulness talks and a meditation and Yoga Nidra session. 

Saturday 19th Jan 2019 - Detox and Destress


Saturday will begin with a warm welcome from your hosts Kate, Mon and Susan accompanied by a delicious vegan herbal infusion tea and healthy snack. The aim of the day is to help you to detox and destress through our programme of yoga, meditation, detox talk, vegan food and mindfulness talks.

In the morning you will experience a Detoxing Yoga practice beginning with a mindful breath practice, moving into a flow class to stimulate the physical, mental and energetic body. You will feel calmer, more focused and de-stressed. This will be followed by a special healing and energising meditation.


The morning also includes a selection of optional talks. Note that these short specialist talks run at the same time - so select one of the following to enjoy:

1. Mindfulness in everyday life with Mon
2. Detox talk with Kate
3. Yoga for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery with Susan

After the talks will be a healthy vegan lunch. Then we move into a special Goal Setting and Vision Board Workshop. This is a special workshop to help you focus your mind for 2019 using meditation and creative techniques to find your purpose for the year.


Saturday afternoon also includes a Gentle Hatha Yoga session to calm the body and mind. This is a gentle flowing style of yoga that is suitable for all levels. After the yoga practice will be a 20 minute Yoga nidra. This guided relaxation or 'yogic sleep' practice is among one of the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. Think of it like a guided relaxation or meditation. Yoga nidra can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health.

At the end of your day enjoy a Vegan Protein Shake (pea, cranberry and rice proteins) which comes in Vanilla or Chocolate flavours to rejuvenate the muscles after your yoga workout and a refreshment designed to rehydrate the body and boost the immune system.

Don't forget that although we have planned lots of lovely sessions for you to enjoy, absolutely everything is optional! If you feel the need to stroll around the grounds, read a book or just have some time to yourself, then please do so. This is your retreat!

Throughout the day there will be the opportunity to book your 1-2-1 treatment with Kate. This will be booked on arrival - further details of available slots will be released nearer the time.


This will be a relaxing yet uplifting retreat day that will have you feeling restored and ready to face the world with a renewed energy for life.
