Somerset Retreat
21st to 24th  September 2020

tiME ; total immersion in me

Can you remember the last occasion you had tiME to simply be?

Escape for three nights to a stunning country location with ancient woodlands and wild meadows, relax in elegant rooms and calming, open spaces and indulge in organic, locally sourced, vegetarian food which delights the eyes as well as the palate. 

And simply BE.

Choose from restorative, vinyasa or yin yoga. Take a guided meditative walk. Read under the trees in the late summer sunshine. Or get the endorphins pumping with some Yoga Shred. 

In this magical place, nurturing your body and soul comes easily. 

You might join us for afternoon discussions on nutrition, wellbeing and prioritising your SELF. Or you might sleep.

This retreat is unashamedly, completely and indulgently about YOU. Under the expert guidance of Lara and Deb you will release and rediscover, unwind and reset your intentions. 

Join us for a memorable chance to reset your intentions and rebalance your body and mind. 

September Retreat ; 42 Acres, Somerset: About Me

When : Monday 21st to 24th September 2020

Where : 42 Acres, Witham Friary, Frome, Somerset BA11 5HL

42 Acres is one of the most beautiful retreat spaces in the UK. Seven hundred acres of ancient forest encircle the main house, originally built as a dairy farm in the 1800s. Through centuries, 42 acres has evolved into a unique retreat space; an organic, working farm operating with the sole intention of creating a blissful escape from 21st century life.

With : Deb Winchester and Lara Darby

Why : To breathe, to practice yoga, to walk, to eat, to laugh, to celebrate, to be.

Deb and Lara are both senior CSV Yoga teachers who believe a little bit of self-appreciation goes a long way. And that we owe it to ourselves to learn to move in a way that creates mobility, fluidity and strength in our bodies. 

Choose from one or all of the classes on offer ranging from Core Strength Vinyasa to Yin yoga to Yoga Shred® or wander through the woodlands, read in the meditation room or simply sleep.
