• Embers - an Autumn Yoga and Massage Retreat

    25-27TH October 2019

    We're thrilled to invite you to our next retreat offering, EMBERS, in the enchanting Ragmans Lane Farm that played home to our heart - full retreat LIGHT earlier this year.

    Join us for a weekend of creativity, joy & reflection after the long dance of summer, as we embrace Autumn and prepare for the darker months.

    The days will move between creative yoga practices, time exploring nature, ceremony, epic feasts, restorative massage & fire circles. A little bit of surrendering to the flow of the day too.

    We'll explore awakening vinyasa and deep meditation to re-connect us with our true essence, wild spirit and sense of purpose. Much coloured by Elena's work with chakra philosophy, creative movement & mantra.

    You'll receive a 30 minute tailored massage treatment with Steve, rooted in the traditions of Ayurveda and holistic bodywork, helping you to unwind, restore muscle tone & re-balance your nervous system.

    We'll share 3 delicious vegetarian meals each day in the beautiful open Ragman's kitchen - organic and locally sourced where possible - and stacked high with treats to fuel you for the day's activities. We are advocates of eating big.

    An invigorating muddy hike following the path of the river Wye will allow you to explore the wild abundance around, and there'll always be a fire burning - either inside in the living room or outside in the fire pit (or both!). Wild swim anyone?

    There'll be a Saturday afternoon optional workshop exploring either: Inversions, Local Herbalism//Crafts, The Chakra System, Mantras.

    Come as you are.

    Home for this weekend is the magical Ragmans Farm. Hidden deep in the heart of the Forest of Dean in the Wye Valley, Ragmans is a 60 acre organic farm where permaculture and organic farming practices are the guiding principles to regenerate the land. Ragmans sits in an area of outstanding beauty, a stones throw from the river Wye which we'll wind down to during our Saturday hike.
