September 20 – 22


Vitality Retreats are an opportunity to welcome greater fulfilment and happiness into our lives.

Over the three-days, you will unwind in serene settings that revive the senses with delicious meals, woodland walks and revitalizing body-mind practices that will inspire your wellbeing and creative potential.

Opening the body we open the mind, enabling new perspective, fresh inspiration and personal insight.

Through the body, we will experience space, stillness, e-motion, sensation, vibration and bliss.


This 3-day programme includes:

Healing Yoga: Asana, Pranayama (breath-work), Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation), Meditation

Somatic Movement

 Embodiment Practices

Soul-Dance: ecstatic dance practice

Healing Sound bath with Tibetan Bowls by Guest Teacher Tom Toher
