Well-being yoga retreats
We have retreat venues all around the UK, ranging from stately homes to old mills, cottages to glamping, each with a special atmosphere and peaceful surroundings to help you unwind in comfort. Spend a few days completely dedicated to your well-being. Leave calmer, relaxed, rejuvenated, and revitalised.
Yoga and meditation retreats outline
We begin each day with a silent walk in the countryside to awaken the senses, followed by 2 hours of yoga and meditation to invigorate and restore, and a healthy vegetarian brunch to nourish. Then the time is yours to rest, enjoy a treatment, explore the area or go for a walk in the countryside. A late lunch is served, then yoga and meditation again in the afternoon followed by a delicious vegetarian feast. These weekend retreats are perfect for those who work as hard as they play and can never find the time to look after themselves. You will find time to relax and let go on these weekend yoga retreats. Whether you’re after some active relaxation or looking to indulge in a slower pace of life, then this is the weekend you’re looking for. These are the key elements to our WellbeingYogi weekends…
For more details or to make a reservation please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.
“I arrived at the retreat feeling crumpled and worn out but after three days of yoga, amazing food, fresh air, lots of sleep and good company I left feeling really blissed out.” Cath Norfolk Retreat Feb 2014
The classes are suitable for all abilities, from beginners to intermediate and advanced levels. Everyone is welcome. We have a range of very experienced yoga teachers who are the best of the best and are well practiced at adapting the class for everyone’s level. Whether it be Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Yin or others, all classes include pranayama, asanas and meditation to help increase balance, clarity and to promote a peaceful mind. Morning sessions are a more dynaic practice and the evening sessions are gentle with lots of stretches, meditation and relaxation.
Enjoying healthy, delicious vegetarian food is an integral part of our WellbeingYogi yoga retreats. Our food is gently detoxing, it’s all vegetarian, made without sugar or dairy products, and low in wheat and gluten. There are herbal teas and caffeinated teas/coffee for you to choose, and there’s bread and cow’s milk in the morning if you prefer it, but also soya and our own almond milk to enjoy. The chef always makes a special porridge for breakfast, and there is granola, fruit, yogurt and eggs to feast on. In the afternoon a healthy snack is prepared and then after evening yoga there’s a wonderful 3-course supper for you. We bring our own chefs with us who all have their own flair and ability to create amazing vegetarian dishes to a very high standard. We offer fresh, local, seasonal and nutritious breakfast, lunch and supper.
Our guests are always incredibly impressed with the diversity, flavour and creativity of our food. They also comment on how much better they feel and how inspired they are for their own cooking when they get home. There’s simply no limit to what our chefs can do with vegetables! Food on our retreats is just as important as our yoga.
Massage / Holistic Treatments
Our own highly experienced therapists are on hand to soothe away your aches and pains. Choose from an array of wonderful different massages, facials, reiki, reflexology and acupuncture depending on your retreat and therapists available. Half an hour treatment of your choice is included in the price but you are welcome to extend your treatment at an extra cost.
We carefully handpick our venues with much research, thought and deliberation. They are truly special venues with lots of character, each with a special history or story and are all surrounded by lovely countryside. From manor houses in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Somerset, to old mills in Cornwall, cottages and glamping in Norfolk, and more simple yoga retreat facilities we cater for all budgets with our system of Buddha ratings.

The main focus on our Well-being retreats are the afternoon walks in beautiful English countryside. Some of our venues have pools, tennis courts and hot tubs that we are able to enjoy too. Each venue has something different to offer; be it quirky local towns, stunning beaches, or ancient sights to explore. Our well-being yoga retreats offer you the space and time to get away from the normal pace of everyday life so our aim is to slow everything down in an actively relaxed way to allow yourself to take time out for you.
