Our Schedule

In the morning, we start with a cleansing and energising vinyasa flow yoga practice in the 17th century Coach House, recently restored with timber floors, original stone work and a biomass heating system.

Early afternoons can be spent exploring the award-winning 15 acre gardens or hiking through the woods & valleys on the 2000 acre estate. Late afternoon will be spent mindfully crafting with local experts with our Mindful Me Workshops.

Mindful Me

A wild & wonderful force surrounds us, connecting us and everything around us to the natural and celestial world. You have the power to tap into this magnificent energy and transform your life. Come with us and learn simple rituals to cast out negative energy, find your truth, and set clear intentions to manifest high-vibes & happiness.

Our cosy & creative workshops are a unique blend of wild know-how and practical how-to designed to help you align person, place and purpose.

In this workshop we will…

  • Start with a beautiful & relaxing guided meditation
  • Learn how to use ancient rituals to help create space for all things good
  • Clear away negative energy with a super charged smudging session
  • Get creative with organic herbs & crystals to create your own smudge sticks
  • Make your own luna candles for intention & meditation setting
  • Have a jolly time connecting with other wild & wonderful women

A second sundown yoga practice and meditation / Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) leads us into evening relaxation and supper back in the Coach House.
