Limited places for this yoga retreat so book early to avoid disappointment (Prices start at £310pp for a shared room)
I’m teaching another very popular yoga weekend in the beautiful Cotswold’s. This weekend is full of yoga, from Hatha flow to meditation and is for all levels of experience so you can do as much or as little as you want. There’s always somewhere quiet you can take a book to have some you time or indulge yourself in a massage.
What I love about teaching retreats is seeing people arrive sometimes a little stressed or tired but leaving looking and feeling calm and relaxed, its good to make sometime to top up your energy levels.
Holycombe is a beautiful residential holistic retreat centre, set in a verdant wooded valley on the edge of the Cotswold village of Whichford. A natural stream rises from a holy well in the nearby wood, passes though the grounds and down a waterfall. The sound of running water adds to the sense of peace and tranquillity. A coppice provides shady outdoor space; there’s a campfire area and a large stone circle on the castle site. Across a meadow is the ancient Whichford wood with many rare species of trees and plants, an abundance of wood anemones, primroses and bluebells in spring; chestnuts, blackberries and sloes in autumn. Wildlife abounds:everything from Muntjack to polecats and kingfishers.
Set in six acres, Holycombe is built in the grounds of a Norman Castle, and has a water-filled moat, habitat for carp and dragonflies. Sally and Andy Birtwell rescued the site from 40 years of being a scrap yard, dedicating 6 years of their life to the restoration. They have built a beautiful house and garden to honour the sacred landscape. Archaeologists have excavated a Roman conduit carrying water from the springs in the wood to the site and dowsers and geomancers have suggested it was a sacred site before Roman the occupation. They also believe that six leylines converge on the stone circle.
