Our Indian Summer time – enjoy the last of this glorious time of year, long shadows and a surprisingly warm time which we often forget about.  It’s our extended summer, and sometimes our only summer!

As we prepare for the winter season we can truly replenish, preparing our mind, body and soul – nurturing and nourishing ourselves.  It will still also be warm enough to take our healing, fun and yoga outdoors.

nab1This yoga retreat includes:

  • Healing retreat where rest and relaxation is the focus
  • Daily yoga classes – focus on beginners level with options for intermediate level
  • Learn self-hypnosis and EFT for self-healing
  • Sound healing session with Tibetan singing bowls
  • Philosophy sessions/ mindfulness classes focusing on empowerment
  • Opportunity for spa treatments
  • Meditations focused on releasing emotions, shifting patterns, healing and wellbeing
  • Optional additional day for a Reiki Workshop for attunement to level 1

We believe in choice and options for your happiness and freedom, so you can opt out of any of the program should you wish to enjoy your quiet time alone, yet there will also be segments allowing for that time.   You do not need to be an experienced Yogi to join; the sessions will focus on a meditative flow to help release and relax the body, mind and soul from.  If you are more experienced Yogi there will be options for you to challenge even further.

The Retreat offers:

  • Incredible beauty with lake and hill views
  • Walks around the area with waterfalls, caves & valleys, mountains & rivers
  • Use of the canoe on the lake/ swimming in the lake
  • Hot tub (we will hire a 2 hour session on our retreat (included in the price)
  • Most rooms have own shower (first come first served)

The gardens around the cottage are used for lessons and meals when the weather is fine. There’s an orchard, an outdoor sauna and hot tub, a summerhouse with hammocks, and a vegetable/flower garden. Hidden away in the gardens are magical secluded seating areas each with a different enchanting view where students can sit alone and reflect or share a beer with friends watching the sun set behind the mountains.

It is a 500m walk along the lake to our local pub, a 3km walk along the river into the local village of Ambleside, and 3km around the lake into Grasmere.  The region is very popular with British tourists so there are many facilities in the villages, including cinemas, shops, bars, clubs, boating, tennis, fitness centres and leisure spas.

Windermere, the largest lake in England, is just 3km away. There are two larger market towns 18km from here; Keswick to the north and Kendal to the south.  Here you can find ruined castles, an ancient stone circle, theatres, museums and many other attractions. The Lake District is a very special place and it is currently being considered for World Heritage status. For information on the area visit and Ambleside Online

The bedrooms are all cosy with beautiful views, and most have their own shower and toilet. There are 2 single rooms, (and another 2 single rooms in our annex 500m along the lake), and eight rooms for 2 people. Downstairs there is a sitting room with log fire, a TV room, a piano room, dining rooms, and a large farmhouse kitchen.
