Easter Yoga retreat with meditation and wellness in Oxfordshire

Thrupp, Oxfordshire
30 March - 02nd April 2018 (Friday - Monday, 3 nights)

On our yoga and meditation retreat in Thrupp, Oxfordshire be prepared to switch off, let go and give permission to yourself to totally relax.

It is springtime and at this time of year, the canal comes alive with life after a dormant winter. Stay in our gorgeous manor house and enjoy the peace that the meditation practices bring to you during the silent walk and in the yoga classes, and feel the body loosen and open up with the asana practices, shedding the winter sluggishness in exchange for a more energised and lighter you.

Explore the local surroundings and enjoy being in the countryside away from the frenetic pace of life in your day today. Walk along the canals, into the surrounding countryside or hire a canoe and paddle instead! Enjoy a massage from one of our expert in-house therapists or take time to rest and just be.

About the yoga

Our Spring yoga classes focus on harnessing the prana of all the new beginnings, life and awakening around us. Allow yourself to shrug off Winter and open yourself to the new possibilities Spring offers!

Morning Yoga
During our strengthening and energising morning classes you can expect: creative flow sequences, core strengthening,  pranayama (control of breath) practices, and even experimentation into thai yoga massage and partner yoga. The class will end with a deeply restful and soothing meditation and sivasana that will allow you to take stock, leaving the class lighter and full of vitality (and ready for brunch)!

Evening Yoga
After a bright and restful day walking in the abundant countryside or treating yourself to a holistic treatment, our restorative yoga sessions are the perfect opportunity to deeply relax and unwind. Allow Louise to facilitate a deepening and lightening within you, melting away physical and mental tension. Louise will be teaching a slower class in the evening, with aspects of yin, philosophy and incredible visual meditation, finishing off with an extended yoga nidra and savasana.
