UK Weekend Retreats

Due the ongoing advice on social distancing I am unable to run the retreats at this time. If you would like to be contacted when they start again, I will add you to an email list and get back to as soon as I can –info@novamilesko.com.

I know I could run them with the distancing but the logistics of trying to make it possible in communal meals, bathrooms, shared spaces and constant cleaning are not conduseive to these uplifting social events and would feel too weird to be the relaxing breaks we all need.

In more normal times this Hampshire getaway runs many times over the year with me, Nova. None in the Summer due to kids and life x


These retreats bring together people of all walks of life. Reminding us to be happy, peaceful, and connected. I offer the chance to relax and rechange in nature with great food, no piousness or dogma. Just come and be!

-This year we are trying to be zero waste on our all our retreats which means sorting all waste created during the retreats and using only ethical products, from the lush face masks and bath products to the “who gives a crap” toilet paper to the Ecover washing up liquid and reusable cloths.


We are taking as much care of the environment as we do of the guests (and all without boring you about it. It is just done because it should be).
And I am going to carbon offset all guests travel to the weekend by donating to Offset Earth

“The location was beautiful, set on a tranquil farm where we could collect our own eggs and veg! Nova was super friendly and so knowledgable, she made us all so welcome and made it feel like home. The yoga was varied and even though I’ve practiced for years, found new poses and new techniques which Nova guided us through seamlessly. We also did plenty of meditation, my favourite was the candle lit one at night, just beautiful. We even managed a trip to the coast and were treated to freshly made pancakes by the sea! Nova went over and above all expectations to make us welcome and all our group discussions were fascinating, hilarious, deep and out there in equal measures. “

“I booked this yoga retreat on a whim for a birthday treat for myself. I do some yoga but I’m certainly not an expert so as the time got nearer I got a little anxious that everyone else would be fully fledged yogis. But not the case we varied in our abilities and everyone was so lovely and encouraging. Nova excelled herself she made the whole experience fun and was quickly able to know exactly what everyone could do. Nova is an excellent teacher and pushed me gently to my limits which felt wonderful. “

Guest January 2020

Make space to breathe, and expand our connection ourselves. Using themed yoga sessions and guided meditations plus a variety of techniques and other Kriyas to clear a space for change.
Let’s take this retreat to focus on what is most important to us, to our health, to our hearts, to our peace of mind.

Drop off the grid and recharge in nature. Really engage with your surroundings and fellow yogis for a weekend of deep restoration (you will be asked to give up your digital toys- phones/laptops etc. But remember everything is always optional).
