Glastonbury Intimate Yoga & Wellbeing Retreat

Friday 26th May - Sunday 28th May 2017
From £319 per person
Maximum of 11 people


Join us for our second fabulous intimate yoga and spiritual adventure in Glastonbury with Beinspired’s Emma Després.

The retreat will be held at the incredibly beautiful and peaceful Lower Coxbridge House which is a truly wonderful spot located 3 miles away from the spiritual town of Glastonbury and surrounded by quintessentially English farmland.
This really is the place to get away from it all, where you cannot help but feel a greater connection to nature, encouraging you to tune out and tune within instead.

The yoga classes will be taught in the light and airy yoga space with large French windows opening onto wooden decking offering panoramic views of Glastonbury Tor and helping you to feel calm and in harmony with yourself and the beautiful natural environment. It is a true gem.

Accommodation is available for up to 11 people in a combination of Yurts in the garden and twin rooms, double rooms and singles rooms in the main House. There is one double en-suite room available, with all the other rooms sharing both a shower room and a bathroom.

Yummy vegetarian food made with locally sourced and predominantly organic produce will be lovingly prepared by the amazing chef, Olga, who is truly passionate about healthy vegetarian food. Olga has many years of experience catering with both raw and cooked foods for yoga retreats and this is evident in the quality and love of the eating experience.

There is no doubt that the retreat will be an unforgettable experience that will allow you to take time out from your daily routine, enjoy the spiritual energy of Glastonbury with its powerful ley lines and stunning Tor, and indulge in a transformational, joyous and rejuvenating yoga practice. 

Location

Lower Coxbridge House is wonderful. It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty with magnificent 360 degree panoramic views of the Somerset countryside and Glastonbury Tor. It really is a gem, providing peace, privacy, seclusion and tranquillity, a rare find in this over cluttered world. It’s the perfect place to retreat and (re)connected with nature, so that you may leave feeling rested and renewed.

Located on the outskirts of the quiet and rural hamlet of Lower Coxbridge, and only 3 miles from Glastonbury town, 50 minutes from Bristol, 90 minutes from Southampton and easy reach from London by road or train, Lower Coxbridge House is a highly individual property, beautifully designed and furnished, providing a charming, rustic and homely venue for a very special break away.

Accommodation

The Lower Coxbridge House offers a selection of unique, homely and rustic rooms. Each room offers a different view across the countryside and has its own special charm.

Set over two levels there are five bedrooms, three contain twin beds, one is rather spacious with a view of the Tor and contains a mini kitchen with a sofa bed which can be single (at a supplement) or double, or two luxury z-beds making it a twin or a triple, and the other master and rather stunning room can be a double or single (at a supplement) and comes with its own en-suite bathroom and balcony and offers fabulous views of the Tor. The rooms have been priced accordingly. There is also a rather amazing yurt in the garden, which can be single (at a supplement) or double.

There are two bathrooms within the house to cater for those rooms without bathrooms and outdoor toilets and showers too.

Please note that rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis depending upon availability.

The Yoga

To Emma yoga encourages the unfolding of the true self, of allowing the spirit to shine,  the heart to lighten and the soul expression.  Teaching a flowing and dynamic form of Hatha yoga, Emma encourages awareness of breath and energies of alignment so that one can experience the transformative, healing and uplifting effects of yoga for oneself. A gentle class and a restorative class will also be taught during the retreat.

With no more than 11 students in each of these classes, you can expect to receive plenty of one-to-one attention with some Reiki thrown in! This provides a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice in a safe and nurturing environment with an empathic and intuitive teacher.

Classes are suitable for all levels of ability except absolute beginners and those who have chronic conditions and/or injuries. Yoga mats and all props are provided; please just bring your heart and spirit!
