A chance to unwind and be rejuvenated!

This weekend is suitable for beginners and more experienced practitioners of yoga. The classes will focus on postures to improve flexibility, strength, and balance in the Iyengar style.

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 area. 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 for a sauna, or to relax around the wood burning stove, or campfire.

On Sunday morning, the programme will be the same as Saturday’s, with a late lunch. Departures during the afternoon, from about 2.30pm.

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.

For many years, our late and much-loved fungus guru Patrick Harding led fungus forays here. They were enjoyable, informative, and lively.

This weekend is run in memory of Patrick, the good times we had with him and the fungi facts we learnt from him. From the proceeds of this weekend, we shall donate to Patrick’s education fund.

We do not expect to be able to emulate Patrick, with his fungi facts and fables, but, through Jean and Martin, two long-time links and acolytes, expect to be able to have a very good time finding mushrooms, identifying them, eating them, and maybe even painting them.

This weekend is suitable for anyone who likes mushrooms, toadstools, truffles, champignons, boletes, or whatever you like to call fungi, and is interested in starting to find out about them or wanting to discover more.

Join us, and allow the miracles of mycelia and the fables of fungi both to instruct and delight you. They will and they do!

In the woods, on the downs, and in the fields of north Wiltshire, many different species of mushrooms and toadstools can be found. We shall go find them, name them, and enjoy them!
