About the Retreats

Join me in an idyllic part of the Kent countryside on these weekend retreats, which are about helping you glow from the inside out. We offer you a balance of dynamic and calming styles of yoga and meditation, alongside nutritious food and juicing.

 

It’s been recognised for thousands of years that to come to a place of balance in our lives we need active, dynamic aspects (Yang) and also slow, self nurturing and calming aspects too (Yin). The Yang practice we’ll focus on in the mornings is Vinyasa Flow, which helps to detoxify the body, build strength and flexibility, and motivate our sense of purpose. Yin sessions will include Yin Yoga, Meditation, Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation), Breathwork and some Thai Yoga Massage.

 

All classes explore themes, aiming to offer you inspiring ideas that help translate yoga off the mat at the end of the retreat and back into your everyday life.

During your stay

The Quaives on-site retreat chefs will be offering you nutritious gourmet vegetarian food and some tasty pre-yoga morning detoxifying elixir's. As well as lots of amazing optional extras...hot tub dips under the stars, dreamy massage treatments with an experienced therapist, a spot of tennis or a countryside stroll, you also have plenty of opportunities to lay back and unwind, and find your inner glow again.

The studio itself can comfortably accommodate up to 20 with lots of space plus teachers. It is incredibly light and spacious, and it has underfloor heating throughout. The studio is also available between yoga sessions for silent meditation and time to yourself.
