Activities and Yoga – East Sussex
2018 Dates TBC | From £427pp - £497pp Standard
Join us this summer at our retreat venue unique to AdventureYogi. In Sussex we are surrounded by the High Weald, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with lakes, walks, hills, cycle paths and bridleways. And only 1 hr from London! In summer it is the perfect time to get more active. The days are longer, the sun is shining and we feel more alive. On our active yoga retreats in Sussex enjoy a guided all day walk through rolling countryside. The next day, you can choose from horse riding, sailing, cycling or walking around Bewl Lake, the largest lake in the South East.
If you prefer you can relax by our outdoor swimming pool heated to 30 degrees, and sunbathe if the UK weather permits. Relax with a massage and, with a combination of the yoga, you will feel relaxed, energised and refreshed this summer.
The weekend begins from 5pm on Friday with time to settle in or go for a wander before the first yoga class at 6.00pm. Dinner will be served at 8pm. Saturday and Sunday follow the below schedule. The retreat ends at 12pm on the Monday afternoon following the morning schedule.

All of our food is gently detoxing and we cater to various dietary preferences. Our guests are always impressed by our creative, flavoursome dishes — that’s because the food is just as important to us as the yoga.
