Intermediate yoga weekend retreat – East Sussex
November 10th - 13th | Early Bird From £449pp Standard £497pp
|November||Chetana Thornton||Early Bird From £449pp|
We have been running our UK yoga retreats since 2007 and we want to offer our regular yogi’s or for those who already have been practising yoga a chance to progress and grow with us in their yoga and spiritual practice. We are proud to be introducing you to our Intermediate and yoga retreats.
Firstly, let’s get things straight – You don’t have to be ‘Miss bendy’ or ‘Mr pretzel’ but you will benefit from these yoga weekends if you have a regular practice or have been practising yoga on and off for a while and have a grasp of it. Our teachers on these yoga retreats are very experienced and will teach a higher level of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and yoga philosophy and support you going deeper into your practice with their guidance.
On each retreat, you will all be given the chance to chat to the yoga teacher about what you would like to get out of the weekend so that the teacher is fully aware of your needs. Over the retreat, we will offer you space to explore your meditation practice and immerse yourself in the more ‘still’ side of yoga – both physically and mentally. The teacher will follow a theme for the retreat and there will also be a yoga philosophy topic on the Saturday evening after dinner.
Allow yourself this total immersion time and come to it with a softness and playfulness too! We maintain our ethos of fun and adventure of the spirit in a relaxed way, and by deepening your yoga practice you are tuning into what you need, to give yourself the best support to a busy and sometimes stressful life.

The retreat is best for those who have done yoga before and know the postures (asanas) and want to be on a retreat where they can progress instead of having mixed ability. Our yoga teachers have all been teaching for a considerable time and will be able to develop your practice with you. Although it is an intermediate retreat we still maintain our relaxed and friendly atmosphere and playfulness.
