It really is so simple. Nature works. Giving your body and soul a chance to surrender outdoors in the sunshine, in beautiful company without anything expected of you... THAT is self care.
After a stressful time soldiering through a few injuries this summer I dropped everything and spent a couple of weeks laying on the grass here at my childhood home in Sussex, doing some gentle yin and absorbing some fresh air. I've never felt so deeply healed and restored.
And now I'm even more convinced that giving yourself this space and is magic medicine, so I'm sharing another full day retreat in Sussex on Saturday 1 September before the sunny days begin to wane.
See the full run-down below and message me to book.
With hugest love
HERE IS THE RUN DOWN...
• 8.00AM • STEALING YOU AWAY •
If you are London based, then on the morning of Saturday 1st September you will be picked up from London Victoria to whisk you 90 minutes out of the big smoke and into the greenery of Hillside Fruit Farm, West Sussex. Your transport costs are included.
If you are coming from outside of London then arrival at the farm is by 10am, you will need to make your own way there but your ticket is a little cheaper.
• 10.30AM • VINYASA YOGA •
Once arrived and settled at Hillside Fruit Farm, my childhood home nestled under the South Downs, we'll enjoy a freeing, flowing mandala style yoga class in one of the grassy fields.
(If the weather is not our friend then we'll practice under the shelter of the farm yard barn, no worries. If it's truly torrential then the day retreat will be postponed altogether with plenty of notice)
• 12PM • HEALTHY LUNCH •
We'll sit down to enjoy a gorgeous al-fresco lunch including lots of fresh veggies and super nutritious, colourful goodness to fuel you through the day.
• 1.00PM • COUNTRY WALK •
After lunch we'll take an energising walk through the woods and up the South Downs, with the most breath taking views over West Sussex. On a clear day you can even see all the way out to the sea and the Isle of Wight!
• 1.30PM • PAINTING MEDITATION •
At the top of the downs we'll spend 30 mins painting the scenery, but don't worry, this is more of a meditation than a artistic talent contest!
• 3.30PM • YIN YOGA •
To ease out any tension still lingering from the city and loosen out the legs after our mini-hike, we'll settle into a dreamy 1 hour yin yoga class led by me.
• 4.30PM • SOUND BATH •
During and for a full 45 minutes after the yin class, sound healing goddess Harriet-Emily will reset your body and soul's vibrational frequency with a delicious crystal bowl and planetary gong healing sound bath.
• 5.15PM • WARM SUPPER •
Before we deliver you back to London of course we're going to make sure your tummy is happy, so surrounded by trees sat around a little fire pit in the woods, we'll enjoy a heart and tummy warming bowl delicious vegan chilli.
• 6.00PM • DELIVERING YOU HOME •
Transport will depart Hillside Fruit Farm at 6.00pm to get you back to London completely refreshed and revived by 8pm.
