Winter Yoga Day Retreat | Near London


Hannah Pocket Yoga Day Retreat at The Yoga Garden in Sussex near London

23rd January 2022 | Open for Booking.

A day retreat at The Yoga Garden is the perfect way to spend a winters day. Nestled in the heart of the Sussex countryside, only an hour from South West London, you don't have to travel far but it feels a world away from the city. The Knepp Rewilding Project has given the land back to nature and this haven is now home to abundant wildlife and rare species.

Yoga will take place in hand crafted yurts, with a wood burning stove to keep us sung. After a welcome tea we will flow through a dynamic hatha vinyasa flow practice, followed by breathwork and meditation. At lunchtime we will share a delicious plant-based hot meal and dessert! You can then choose to stay curled up by the fire or to wrap up warm and take a guided walk around the stunning local countryside. As it starts to get dark we will return to our yurt for candlelit yin yoga, guided relaxation and head massage.


This intimate day retreat (12 people max) is open to all levels, and is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice in a small group environment.

COVID: I will be taking all the precautions to make this retreat extra safe.

  • Double Vaccination or Negative Lateral Flow test required to attend

  • Option to bring your own mats, props and a towel to cover the bolster

  • Refund guaranteed if the retreat is cancelled

If you have any questions or are interested in booking a place, please get in touch.

Our morning practice will start slow, as we mindfully explore a full range of movement through every joint. Once we have warmed up the pace will start to build, flowing though a dynamic sequence designed to give you a full body workout. There will be an invitation to play with more challenging arm balances, with options given for all levels.

Local, home grown, organic, vegan feast cooked by Mini Annabel.

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

15:30 | Afternoon yoga: Candlelit yin yoga

As it gets dark outside we will light the candles, get cozy and sink into the magical world of Yin. The series of floor based poses will invite gravity to gently guide you deep into your connective tissue and fascia, unravelling hidden areas of tension. Hands on assists and massage, will be offered throughout to help you relax.

Calming breathwork, guided relaxation, yoga nidra and head massage with Neil's Yard Bee Lovely Lotion.

"Hannah's winter day retreat was a wonderful opportunity to improve my practice in a beautiful location. It was the perfect mix between invigorating flow and relaxation. Hannah had planned the day thoroughly and spent lots of one to one time with everyone, I got so much out of it. With the delicious food, the setting, the cosy yurts and of course all the yoga, it was great value for money." Laura. 
“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
