A chance to unwind and be rejuvenated!

Yoga works not only on the body but also calms and sharpens the mind and leads to all-round alertness.

Iyengar Yoga will be taught in a way that is suited to beginners and more experienced practitioners. The classes will focus on postures to improve flexibility, strength, and balance.

The weekend will also include sessions on giving and receiving a relaxing and toning massage, covering different areas of the body.

On Saturday there will be an early morning Pranayama (breath control) class, then following breakfast, a two hour asana (postures) class, and a massage class. After lunch the options are to relax at the farm, use the super rustic sauna, or go on a led walk in the local countryside. In the late afternoon there is a restorative asana session, and a massage class.

In the evening there will be either a guided meditation, or foot baths, or time to relax around the wood burning stove, or campfire.

On Sunday morning, the programme will be the same as Saturday.

Departures during the afternoon, from about 3pm.

Group size: up to about 12.

As the season turns and nights draw in, we mark the change by getting together to spark our creative imaginations. We shall carve and hollow pumpkins and fill them with light; decorate small lanterns to shine brightly and drive away the darkness; make marzipan skeletons; experiment and play with drawing, painting, and print to produce mixed media artworks; and light fires and make fire sculptures to remind us of the sun.

A weekend for all ages to get together and be imaginative, and have fun, in autumn! This weekend begins on Friday evening and finishes after lunch on the Sunday.
