Yoga is a journey back home to the true self, Jade likes to take her students on a journey throughout their practice, working hard in order to reconnect and balance the pranic energy within. Jade loves dynamic flows with lots of heart openers and time for enquiry.
Morning classes will involve pranayama, dynamic flow and fun inversions followed by a sweet luna flow and the sweetest shavasana.Evening classes will involve a dreamy meditation and yin flow to set you up for a restful nights sleep.
Be prepared to sweat, reconnect and open up to the beauty of you.
A Typical Day
Start the day as you mean to go on with a high intensity workout in and around the grounds of our stunning farmhouse. You’ll be in the supportive hands of a Mark who will guide and encourage you to hit new goals every session.
Time to fuel up. An energising breakfast prepared with care by our onsite chef will send your taste buds into a frenzy and give you a much-needed boost after your invigorating morning HIIT workout.
Dynamic Flow Yoga
Following a intense morning workout, its time to focus your thoughts and body with a guided session of Dynamic Flow Yoga. Jade's morning classes will involve pranayama, dynamic flow and fun inversions followed by a sweet luna flow and the sweetest shavasana, leaving you feeling invigorated and ready for the day ahead.
It’s time to step back and enjoy a freshly prepared, mouth-watering lunch. Our food often goes down as people’s favourite part of their experience at Our Retreat.
We believe the best hours of the day are best spent relaxing so lunch is always followed by some free time to yourself. Take yourself off for an afternoon nap, curl up by the fire and read your favourite book or indulge in a spot of pampering...the choice is yours.
Our walks are always an adventure, leading you through the dramatic and stunning setting of the English countryside. Acres of forest land are right on the door step of our Farmhouse. A perfect way to exercise without feeling the pain and the views and pathways will take your breath away.
Afternoon Abs or Glute Class
You’ll never be far away from activity. An afternoon of Abs or glute session is the perfect way to hone your strength and complement high intensity training. These sessions are focused but fun; it’s wonderful to notice your progression along with the rest of your group.
Your evening meal will surprise and delight you every time. The chefs work hard to produce only the finest dishes and becomes an exciting affair for the whole group to enjoy.
Time for some restorative and yin yoga to calm the mind, stretch the body and hold your poses, which allow a deeper stretch and calmness of the mind.
