Reset Yoga and Meditation Retreat in the heart of Dorset, 12th – 14th January

We always complain about how quickly life moves and yet most of us seem to wish January away. This retreat is all about your happiness. We’re not about detoxing or taking away life’s pleasures. In fact the complete opposite; we are about taking a moment to really immerse yourself in all these wonderfully simple pleasures life has to offer.

Our retreats are an opportunity to relax, to laugh & to find peace within yourself. A chance to remove yourself from the expectations you and others put on you and instead experience a slice of time where none of those expectations exist. Giving yourself a slice of time, after the chaos of christmas and before the if’s and then’s of the next year, to instead focus on how you feel, in this moment. It’s a weekend to take stock and find that space in time to find a little clarity ready to take forward into the rest of the year.

On hand you will have your very own yoga teacher and mood coach, Nathalie, who is an experienced mental wellbeing practitioner & advanced yoga instructor and available to support you throughout the weekend. You will also have our in house nutritionist, Rooted London, who will be feeding you full of goodness whilst having a wealth of nutritional knowledge to share. Last but not least you will have the added bonus of aromatherapy and reiki expert, Ellie Seilern; who will be providing a wonderful resetting workshop as well as being available for guests to book individual treatments with.
