Make the most of the beginning of Summer by joining us at this luxurious long weekend away in the beautiful Cotswolds.

At an amazing spa venue, complete with indoor pool and Hammam, you’ll be spoilt with rejuvenating yoga and naturally wholesome food, in the midst of the beautiful Cotswolds countryside.

The yoga will be led by leading London yoga teacher Gemma Soul.  Gemma will guide you through this truly invigorating retreat, refreshing your mind, body and soul with two yoga sessions a day. To nourish your body, there will be nutritious and delicious, and colourful cuisine.  Daily breakfast, lunch and a 3-course dinner- with the very best, local ingredients.

The beautiful Kingham cottages and fabulous facilities within the grounds – including five acres of landscaped gardens, a tennis court and an indoor heated swimming pool complex with traditional Turkish Hammam – will allow you to do as much or as little as you wish.

Make this long weekend the complete wellness experience, leaving with a fresh perspective, not only on your yoga, but on life too.

There is limited availability for this retreat, so that you will benefit from individual attention and hands-on adjustments.

Venue

Located in the heart of Kingham, a quintessential English village (voted England’s favorite!) 90 minutes from central London by car or train. There are three unique cottages in traditional Cotswolds style with timeless interiors and all the modern-day conveniences to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The twin or double bedrooms are all beautifully furnished, most of them ensuite or with separate bathrooms. The cottages also benefit from open plan living areas, flagstone floors, open fireplaces and decorated with ‘arts and crafts’ period furniture. Another highlight includes Daylesford Organic’s farm shop and café only a 20-minute walk away.

Schedule

The retreat will start at 6pm on Friday 6th March and finish 10am Monday 9th March 2020.

Yoga with Gemma will take place in the new windowed Courtyard, whilst overlooking the beautiful gardens. There will be a welcome class on arrival, two classes on Saturday and Sunday and a farewell class Monday morning.

During the weekend, Gemma will lead you through a 90-minute dynamic vinyasa flow every morning, the spring is the perfect opportunity to put let go, shake off winter, set new intentions and embrace the lightness of the summer ahead.  So be prepared to sweat in a nourishing and cleansing practice.  Every afternoon will be a 90 minute slower practice varying between yin yoga, restorative yoga, meditation and yoga nidra which will totally compliment your time around the pool, or in the hamman and getting fresh air in the surrounding beautiful countryside.  Workshop and/or asana blitz question time available for those wanting to truly understand a deeper dimension in their practice.
