Our yoga retreats in both the UK and in India create time for you to relax and learn more about yoga
Our UK retreats are run at Maitreya House in Herefordshire. This is a Buddhist retreat centre in a very beautiful rural setting. Maitreya house is an extended renovated cottage with a few wooden cabins in the grounds. These are very cute. They are warm in the winter and cool in the summer and their doors open straight onto a little veranda which leads straight onto the garden. We use a lovely Zendo next door for our yoga classes which looks out onto a beautiful garden with mountains as a back drop. You are very much out in nature here; lots of birdsong and sheep is far more common to hear than cars.
The accommodation is shared but if you need a single room we will do our best to arrange this for you. Most of the rooms are for two people and a couple are for three. We always choose carefully who we put with who. You will either be with someone you know or you will be with someone that we think you will get on really well with. Lots of friendships are formed on these retreats.
Our retreats and Maitreya House have a strong ethos of Karma Yoga. This basically means everyone chipping in to support the group. The group runs itself and looks after the space we are in. You will be occasionally in the kitchen helping to prepare food or perhaps helping clean afterwards. If you see anything that needs doing please do it. This helps us all. The food will be mostly vegan but there will be cheese and milk for vegetarians. If you have any dietary requirements e.g. no dairy then please tell us in advance of the retreat. We will have wonderfully fresh nourishing food for the whole retreat – prepare to be fed well!
A whole day on the retreat will comprise of early morning yoga, breakfast, pranayama and relaxation class, lunch, a long walk, supper and an evening session. If you have anything specific in mind you would want to cover on the retreat please let us know – we are always open to requests!
