WELL BEING RETREAT

8th, 9th, 10th July 2018

Join us this July at our Wellbeing retreat at Elmley Nature Reserve, just an hour from London. Over two days we will offer you a gentle programme of workshops that will nourish and feed your soul, leaving you feeling revived and refreshed.

Dive deep into the beautiful wilderness and soak up all that Mother Nature has to offer.

This retreat is not just about escaping for a couple of days, we want to give you the opportunity to slow down, check in with nature and give yourself some space.  You will learn how to take care of yourself and how to be kinder to yourself in your daily life going forward.

Prices from as little as £490 per person.

 Retreat Programme 

8th July:

Arrival day. Make your way to the reserve for 3pm. Settle down into your hut or tent.

Gather and join us for our first session, a guided tour of the reserve and an opportunity to see some of the wildlife. Back at base, we'll hold a formal welcome session and grounding meditation around the fire. An informal dinner of delicious vegan food will follow before hot drinks at bedtime.

9th July:

Wake up to wilderness and enjoy a tea or coffee and a light breakfast snack before our morning yoga session.

A delicious breakfast will follow before you settle down to the first of your wellbeing workshops (Workshop leader to be announced soon!).

Lunch will be about soaking up the natural setting at your own pace.  With a beautiful individual picnic you will be able to wander, pick your own spot and eat in the splendour that is Elmley Nature Reserve.

After lunch you will check in for your third wellbeing workshop (to be announced soon!)

Come the evening, we will feast outside by the fire and under the stars, it will be an evening to remember with incredible food and wine – all beautifully styled by Hannah Bullivant.

10th July:

The next morning we will wake and stretch together with yoga, before enjoying breakfast.

You will then settle in for our fourth workshop session (Announcement coming soon - make sure you're all signed up to our mailing list), before  enjoying a delicious lunch with the group. 

After lunch we'll have our fifth and final session of the retreat.  You will return home, with a sense of calm and fulfilment. Your bag packed with tips and advice to help you include a wellbeing routine in your daily life.
