Winter Yoga Day Retreat | Near London


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

22nd January 2023 | 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.


"Hannah’s day yoga retreat was absolutely fantastic. I came away with a renewed love of yoga and feeling really refreshed and renewed. The location was beautiful and a great place to switch off and relax. The schedule for the day was perfect, with more energetic yoga in the morning and slower paced yoga in the afternoon. I didn’t want to leave!" - Megan

Yoga will take place in hand crafted yurts, with a wood burning stove to keep us cozy. 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.


Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book a place.


Winter Yoga Day Retreat | £125pp

10:45 | Welcome tea

11:00 | Morning hatha vinyasa yoga

Our morning practice will flow through a creative sequence to build strength in the upper body, core and glutes. We will then take a deep dive into Lizard Pose. Tuning into your own energy levels you can either sink into the more passive deep stretch variations, or you can take some time to play with the more active Flying Lizard variations.


12:30 | Meditation and breathwork


13:00 | Lunch

Local, home grown, organic, plant based feast cooked by Mini Annabel.

14:00 | Walk or rest

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, wrap up warm 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.

16:45 | The ultimate shavasana

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