Wellbeing and yoga – Bicester, Oxfordshire

January / February / April / October 2017 | From £375pp - £550pp



On our wellbeing and yoga retreat in Bicester be prepared to switch off, let go and give permission to yourself to totally relax. You have chosen this wellbeing retreat to offer yourself just that – some wellbeing. It is time to nourish every cell in your body and mind. Allow the retreat venue to hold you, a safe space to start to unwind. Let the food nourish your being, gently cleansing you from the inside by removing the daily excess of toxins it is all too easy to consume when we are on the move. Allow the yoga from our team of expert yoga teachers help you connect to your inner and most true being to show you where you are in this moment. Slow down, let go, unwind, relax.

It may only be 2 nights but the rejuvenation can feel like you’ve been on holiday for a week. The stillness and the inner quiet that is your sanctuary is revived so now it is up to you to hold onto it!

We offer an afternoon walk on the Sunday and the Saturday is a time for you to rest and rejuvenate. In winter curl up in the cosy living room next to the log fire and read a great book or have a snooze. Enjoy a massage from one of our expert in-house therapists or just take time to rest and just be.

We have been running our wellbeing yoga retreats since 2008 so let our teams of highly trained chefs and teachers lead you to pure relaxation and contentment

We believe that our retreats should be nurturing in every way. So our Vitality Chefs will create tasty, healthy, vegetarian meals for you from local, seasonal produce. 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.


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, depending on your retreat and therapists available. Prices: £38 30 minutes and £65 for 1 hour
