Day Retreats

These yoga retreat days are designed to help you connect with your body, mind and soul, and revive you at many levels as a human being. Take a break from your busy life and gift yourself one relaxing day in the beautiful Hampshire...

 

Each yoga retreat day will combine a vinyasa yoga class and a yin yoga class, mindful nature walking, home-cooked veggie lunch, and some form of creativity (e.g. creative journalling, poetry, vision boards or creative nature adventure)... 

Retreats Schedule

COVID Safe

These in-person yoga classes are Covid-19 safe, and the following measures will be in place:

  • The venue will be cleaned before and after use.

  • The numbers of attendees will be restricted so there will be plenty of space between each mat.

  • Please bring your own yoga mat if you have one. If you don’t have your own mat, you can borrow one of mine. I will bring a few spare mats and they will all be properly sanitised.

  • Please bring your own blanket and any other props you like (e.g. block, belt) if you own them. If you don’t have your own blanket or props, you can borrow mine. I will ensure that all blankets and props are cleaned before and after your use.

  • I will bring hand sanitiser, and there will be soap in the bathroom for washing hands.

  • I will not do any hands-on adjustments.

LOCATION

  • Address: Easton Village Hall, Chapel Lane, Easton, Winchester, Hampshire, SO21 1EN.

  • By car: Just type in the address or postcode (SO21 1EN) into google maps. It is a relatively simple journey  from London – about 1.5 hours – and mostly on motorways.

  • Parking: There is free easy parking outside Easton Village Hall. All cars should fit into the car park, but if not, feel free to double park and block another car in, as we will be the only people using the venue, and you will all leave at the same time. Alternatively, two minutes further down the road, where the Cricketer’s Inn pub is, there is ample off-side free parking.

  • By train: There are many regular trains into Winchester. If you are travelling from London, you will travel from London Waterloo Station and arrive at Winchester train station within approx one hour. There are always plenty of taxis outside Winchester train station, so you can just jump straight into a taxi to Easton Village Hall. The price of the taxi will be about £10-£11. For the return journey (from the venue to the station), I recommend booking a taxi with Winchester Taxis (01962 626262), and the price is the same (about £10-11).

VENUE

  • Easton Village Hall occupies a beautiful site in the centre of Easton village adjacent to the cricket pitch. The yoga studio is a modern, spacious and clean space, with high ceilings, plenty of light and a view overlooking open green countryside.

  • Easton village is located within the Itchen Valley in Hampshire, four miles east of Winchester.

  • There are two great village pubs located within a few minutes walk: The Cricketers Inn and Chestnut Horse.

  • Easton village has beautiful clear rivers, which you will see on the mindful loop walk.

TURN IT INTO A WEEKEND

Why not stay over in Winchester and make the yoga retreat day into a weekend retreat…? Winchester is a lovely small city with beautiful shops and farmers market, a famous cathedral, lots of wonderful places to eat, stunning green walks and clean flowing rivers…

Food: There are two great village pubs located within a few minutes walk of the yoga retreat venue in Easton: The Cricketers Inn and Chestnut Horse. In central Winchester, the Wykeham ArmsForte Kitchen and The Ivy are all popular, but there are dozens of smaller cafes and restaurants to choose from. If you really want to treat yourself, you could book Sunday lunch is the Black Rat. It’s totally delicious (aka Michelin star) but reasonably affordable with a 3-course meal for under £30. You would need to book this in advance to get a table.

Walks: There are so many beautiful walks around Easton and Winchester. Some examples can be found here:
