GATHER WEEKEND RETREAT

Thursday, 21st to Sunday, 24th November 2024

Join me this November to Gather...

 

...for 3 nights and 4 days of yoga in the beautiful New Forest.​

This Gathering will be at Arnewood Manor, a manor house situated in beautiful grounds near Sway in the New Forest. The house is wonderfully spacious but also cosy, with a very homely feel. 

Our weekend begins on Thursday with a leisurely arrival at anytime after 4pm, there will be some yoga then dinner on the first night will be at 7pm followed by our welcome circle.

 

Friday and Saturday are our full and immersive days of yoga. There will be lots of offer from gentle meditative practices to more dynamic movement, as well as philosophy and deep rest. There will also be daily walks on Friday and Saturday, one on the beach (or a swim if you fancy it) and one in the forest with the ponies. There is the opportunity to book in for a 1-2-1 healing treatment with Laura (details below). Sunday morning is for more yoga and a light breakfast. Departure will be at 10.30am.

This is your retreat, you can do as much or as little as you wish.

All rooms are located on the 1st floor of Arnewood Manor. They are spacious and light and have wonderful views of the grounds from their windows. There are three bathrooms, one is a 'jack and jill' with a bath and there are also two brand new shower rooms - these will be shared between the bedrooms. One twin room comes with an ensuite. The rooms are warm and welcoming, with crisp linens on each bed. Towels are provided.

The timing of this retreat is potent, it falls just after the November full moon. The pagans called this moon the Mourning Moon as it was considered an optional time to let go of unnecessary things yet with the time and permission to mourn their passing. So often in our busy lives, time for this kind of processing is sadly lacking. Our weekend will honour that energy with a schedule designed for Self reflection, letting go, resting and restoration.
