  • A one-off special retreat with Carol at Nettlecombe Farm (not currently included in our venue list but highly recommended)

We are delighted to promote Carol on this special three-night New Year retreat.

A respected and popular teacher based on the Isle of Wight, Carol has taught for over sixteen years at Huzur Vadisi venues in Turkey, Wales and Spain.

A Yuletide retreat is the perfect way to let go of the past year and open to the new year ahead.
After spending precious time with family and friends over Christmas, there is nothing like gifting oneself some valuable days away and igniting positive shifts in our lives.

Carol is therefore delighted to be able to offer this three-night retreat. It is her intention to hold a safe and loving space for participants to relax and unwind, both physically and mentally.
If you are feeling stuck, looking for a new direction in your life or needing to set intentions and goals, then look no further.
There are no flights to book, no busy airports to pass through, just a simple Ferry crossing to bring you to our stunning Island.

In numerology 2020 is considered to be an angel number and symbolises huge potential. Throughout the retreat we will tap into this energy, whilst weaving through the various aspects of the practice, finding ways to use your gifts and talents to accomplish your goals and to live the life that you deserve and desire.

The Retreat

Will commence on Sunday 29th with arrivals welcome any time after 1pm. A welcome chat with tea, chai and homemade cakes will be offered in Swallow cottage.

The practice will open with a late afternoon restorative session, followed by an evening meditation and supper.

Monday and Tuesday will commence with morning Sadhana in the warmth of the yoga barn, opening to the practice of meditation, pranayama, kriya, asana and mantra.

The mornings will be packed with delight and offer the opportunity for a really good stretch through a slow yet dynamic practice.
Afternoons will offer the opportunity to enjoy some self-time, reading, walking, having a massage or doing whatever you feel….preferably nothing!
Late afternoon and into the evening, there will be an offering of mantras and celestial communications and Yoga Nidra and New Year’s Eve will be an opportunity to “Dance like no one is watching!!” through a Yoga Dance session.

Gratitude journaling will also be a part of the retreat as will journaling intentions, so purchase a beautiful journal in preparation!

Our retreat will finish after morning practice on Wednesday January 1st with a closing ceremony and a light lunch.

Departures any time after 1pm, or massages will still be available to book.
