Easter Weekend Yoga and Wellness Retreat in Norfolk
|30 March - 02nd April 2018 (Friday - Monday, 3 nights)|
If you are not sure of your plans for Easter come and join us in Norfolk at our stunning venue and revitalise with yoga, delicious food and invigorating walks on our Easter Yoga retreat.
Easter is a great time to go away on a yoga retreat; the spring equinox has been and the days are getting lighter which means that an optimism is in the air, new life is on the horizon and a new and abundant energy is blossoming. Now is a great time to let go of the slower energy from winter that may have left you feeling stagnant and invigorate body and mind with playful yoga, a more dynamic practice to reflect the energy of spring and let go of the heaviness of winter, to feel, after 4 days, lighter, brighter and a more energised you.
SuitabilityThis retreat is suitable for anyone who'd like a weekend away with wellness, healthy food and Yoga. Beginners are welcome as well as all ages.
- All ages
- Men & Women
