Autumn Yoga Day Retreat | £120pp

10:30 | Welcome tea

11:00 | Morning hatha vinyasa yoga

Our morning practice will flow through a series of postures designed to increase mobility in the spine and build strength in the back. As we move through our creative sequence, we will connect deeply with our internal physical experience, allowing the mind to become completely absorbed in the moving meditation. We will focus on creating mindful transitions and using the breath to safely deepen each pose.

12:30 | Meditation and breathwork

13:00 | Lunch

Local, home grown, organic, vegan feast cooked by Mini Annabel. Eaten outside, picnic style - weather permitting.

14:00 | Walk or rest

Join our guided walk in the heart of the Knepp Rewilding Project, or relax (in the sunshine or by the fire, weather dependent) with a cup of tea, reading, journalling, or snoozing!

15:30 | Afternoon yoga: Candlelit yin yoga

This mediative practice is profoundly relaxing and nourishing for the body and mind. We will continue our exploration of the spine, as we will slow right down and sink into a series of long hold, floor based poses. Gravity will gently guide you deep into your connective tissue and fascia, unravelling hidden areas of tension.

16:45 | The ultimate shavasana

Calming breathwork, guided meditation, yoga nidra.

17:30 | End of retreat

*All yoga equipment provided if needed (eco friendly mats, bolsters, blankets, belts and cork blocks)

“Such a perfect way and place to spend a Sunday. Hannah is such a knowledgeable yoga teacher and makes everyone feel so welcome. The venue was literally stunning, and it was so nice to get out of London for a day. I'm still on such a high from such a lovely day spent with a wonderful group of people. I can't recommend this yoga retreat enough.” Rosie
“Hannah you were an absolutely wonderful instructor. So warm, friendly and very clear in delivering the instructions. Especially for two people who don't practise yoga often. I also really appreciated the level of intensity, more dynamic in the morning and more relaxed and stretchy in the afternoon. Also really enjoyed an afternoon walk. I loved the music too, a mix of yoga sounds and cool chilled music” George
