If you are not the sitting still kind of yogi, looking for a real fun packed playdate with the yoga threading the weekend together, then this is the one for you. We will be connecting with nature on and off the mat by getting out into the beautiful surroundings.
This weekend offers some unique opportunities to combine your love of yoga with chances to try almost anything else outdoorsy. There are hundreds of bike trails through the forest on the door step, horse riding, to name but a few. There are plenty of walking opportunities in the area. Just 5 minutes walk is the village of Pilley with 2 outstanding pubs and less than 2 miles away is the stunning Lymington with a lots of great pubs and restaurants . This is the perfect weekend for those of you in need of choices and getting back to nature.
With real eco credentials, it is currently featured in the Guardian as “Pure Luxury in the Forest” This Farmstay is like no other. With fresh veg for the picking, a 180 acre family-run farm and has been certified organic by the Soil Association since 1996. As well as being a great place to live and farm it is a wonderful location to stay in their luxury converted barns. You will connect body and mind as we play in and outdoors. Then come back to your cosy, warm fires at the end of a full day. Make most of that sweet well-earned tiredness that comes from being truly engaged in life, and jump into the roll-top bath.
The Grain Loft raises excitement levels with a walk on window – you can see down into the nursery stable below which, depending upon the time of year has freshly hatched chicks, Snowgoose goslings, Swiss Valais lambs or Boer kids being born. The other unique feature is the hay mattress beds in stall partitions, and the cosiness factor is increased further by liberal use of sheep skins from our own flock.
The original pulley system is still in place, but instead of hauling up hessian sacks of grain to be stored, we have draped a cluster of light bulbs through it.
Your yoga weekend will include a combination of Vinyasa yoga classes, Yin yoga, workshops and meditation with Nova Milesko, lovely massages and delicious, nourishing food.

About the Yoga
It is the perfect balance of effort and surrender-nurture yourself with yoga and explore the calming effects of yin and meditation. The morning sessions start with gentle stretching and pranayama (breathing exercises) building gradually into a flow (Vinyasa) practice, suitable for most of ability.
The more gentle evening sessions of Yin with the focus on relaxation and release, promoting harmony, healthy immune functioning and improving overall vitality.
The retreat setting allows for plenty of individual guidance so that we’ll be able to work with your specific level and requirements.
The workshop is group dependant, if you want to play it can be acroyoga, if you want to rest then it might be a deep yoga nidra practice, or maybe an ayurvedic detox lecture. It is your retreat, you decide!
