NEW YEAR RETREAT
Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th of January 2020
A yoga and cycling weekend at the Quaives in the Kent countryside
“This weekend is simply for you to indulge in you”
The first week of the new year will gather in the most stunning of venues. The Quaives is such a special place nestled in between picturesque English villages and along the Little Stour river. The Quaives homes four perfect cottages, gardens and grounds with a hot tub and tennis court that opens up onto meadows and lakes. And the yoga barn is second to none, with high ceilings, heated flooring and floor to ceiling windows that pour in natural light – I cannot wait to share this experience with you.
This weekend is simply for you to indulge in you. A few days to be kind to yourself; to give your body and soul the attention and care it deserves. Enjoy energising and restorative yoga and soothing Yoga Nidra. Take in the fresh country air as you venture on wheels through Kent countryside. Nourishing gourmet vegetarian meals sourced with local organic produce.
- Daily asana practises (both dynamic and creative vinyasa flow and restorative yoga).
- Yoga Nidra and guided meditation, chanting and pranayama (breathing exercises).
- Carefully chosen guided cycle routes to take in the beautiful Kent countryside.
- All meals, organically sourced with excellent vegetarian chefs.
- Free time to explore the grounds and use of tennis court and racquets.
- Most importantly, enjoying good conversation and company.
