These yoga weekend retreats are designed to be a holistic and powerful all of body, mind and spirit revival that will enable you to re-connect to the sacred, slow down, and raise your vibrations.
Take time out to rejuvenate and restore by gifting yourself a deeply healing weekend in the majestic New Forest...
The Retreat is in a stunning stately home in the heart of the ancient woodland of the New Forest. Alice Hargreaves, the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, spent many happy days playing here!
It is the perfect venue for a deep-dive into the healing power of nature, yoga and rest, with its beautiful tranquil, light-filled yoga space at the heart of the building, with characteristically Georgian high ceilings, long sash windows and French doors opening onto the lawns. The venue is a hub of holistic and whole-person wellbeing. It’s a place that allows you the time and space to focus on yourself, giving you the opportunity to regain a renewed and positive perspective on life.
Each yoga weekend retreat will combine vinyasa flow yoga, yin and restorative yoga, healing meditations, inspiring poetry, opportunities to connect with nature, freshly prepared locally sourced plant-based meals, luxurious guest accommodation, a charming rural setting with unique peaceful ambiance, and an option to book therapists whose expertise and intuitive abilities will ensure that you will receive exactly what you need.
I have hosted ten yoga retreats so far in Oxfordshire, Dorset and the Lake District and each one was rated 10/10 for overall enjoyment.
Prices range from £250 (day student) to £410 (luxury double ensuite room for single occupancy).
100% refund if we/you are locked down!
These yoga retreats 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, pillows) if you own them. If you don’t have your own 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 all the bathrooms for washing hands.
I will not do any hands-on adjustments.
Refund policy: If Covid19 lockdown rules mean that the venue has to cancel the event, a full refund will be given. If Covid19 lockdown rules mean that you are prohibited from travelling to the venue, you will receive a full refund (the venue requires proof of address).

Turn off the busy highway, tune in to your higher self, drop into a tranquil space. The Retreat New Forest is all about taking time out to rejuvenate and restore.

Yoga classes and meditations will be hosted in the largest room on site – a beautiful tranquil, light-filled room called the Centre Space – which is the heart of the building, with characteristically Georgian high ceilings, long sash windows and French doors opening onto the lawns.
The venue boosts beautiful indoor spaces, peaceful outside spaces in the surrounding formal gardens, secret walled garden, lawns, parkland and woods.
The Retreat has 10 spacious and luxurious double ensuite rooms, all individually and beautifully decorated. The high-ceilinged Georgian rooms enjoy beautiful sunlight and views across the grounds. It has also 3 basic double ensuite rooms (these rooms are closer to the road).
The Retreat is the former Dower House for the Hinton Admiral estate, and is still owned by the family, retaining the feeling of being a private home-from-home. Alice Hargreaves, the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, spent many happy days playing here!
Good food is great medicine. And at The Retreat, the medicine tastes delicious.
The food will be lovingly prepared by George and Will – the amazing Crow Spotter team – who are talented professional chefs and baristas. Their focus is on freshly prepared, locally sourced plant-based meals and high-quality supplements/nootropics that compliment a balanced lifestyle. They will happily and expertly prepare scrumptious, revitalising and plant-based foods for us all weekend. And provide table service in the beautiful Crow Spotter café at the heart of the venue..
All teas (herbal and builders tea) will be provided for free throughout the retreat. You are welcome to treat yourself to one of the famous Crow Spotter coffees, but this you will need to pay for yourself…
Crow Spotter values:
“Conscious, natural living. For us, this means living in tune with the seasons, in harmony with our fellow beings and with the freedom to express our true selves. In practice, this affects the way we do business in many ways - from plant based, seasonal menus to empowering the local community.”

“Everything about the weekend yoga retreat surpassed my expectations. I loved Sherin’s themes in her yoga classes: they built in so many more layers than just your average yoga class.
I thought the pace, style and creative sequencing of the yoga classes was perfect, and I LOVED the music.
The venue and food and all the extra sessions were a perfect combination of healthy, comfortable and healing.
I felt like a completely different person when I left after just one weekend. A much softer, happier and healthier version of my normal stressed-out self!
Thank you so much.”
