Relax & Restore Retreat Day

We had a really lovely and relaxing Retreat Day on Saturday

We welcomed in the New Year with the theme of Sankalpa, which is the setting of intentions.

Our group enjoyed a hatha yoga flow in the morning with Laura, followed by a delicious and nutritious lunch.

Laura led a meditation session in the woods whilst enjoying the peaceful setting.

After some warming drinks we had our wellbeing session as Laura then finished the day with an amazing restorative yoga and sound meditation hour.

If you would like to join us, our next Retreat Day is on Saturday 2 February
(beginners are very welcome)

11:30am - 4:30pm


Laura is also here for our Candlelit Supper Evenings on

Happy New Year

We hope you had a lovely Christmas and wish you a happy and healthy 2019.

Classes start back at Treetops next week, starting with our new MONDAY MORNING YOGA class

We are now running one class from 9:45am - 11:15am, a perfect opportunity to begin your week with softness, comfort and intention.

Throughout the 90 minute class you will be guided through restorative yoga; supported by bolsters, blocks and cushions, engaging in softening breath work for your mind and body, floating into yoga nidra (yogic sleep) and relaxing deeply with sound meditation.

This class is perfect for any level of yoga knowledge, and for those who are nursing injury or illness.  Cost £15.  Please call ahead to book your mat.

Our next Retreat Day is on Saturday 21 January, there are a few places left so book quickly

The day runs from 11:30am - 4:30pm and our theme for the day is Sankalpa, this is the word used for yoga’s tradition of offering a refreshing alternative to making New Year’s resolutions.  Instead we practice sankalpa or intention, this comes from the principle that we are already who we need to be.

During the day we will enjoy yoga, relaxation, meditation, nutritious food, a woodland walk and sound healing.  Investment for this day is £75 which includes a goody bag to take home.

(We are also running this Retreat Day on Saturday 2 February)

Our next Candlelit Yoga Supper evening is on Tuesday 29 January

These evenings are really cosy and relaxing, Laura leads a gentle yoga flow by the fireside, followed by a warming soup supper.  It’s then back under some cosy duvets and eye masks for sound meditation.  The evening runs from 7pm - 9:30pm and costs £30

(We are also running these evenings on Tuesday 26 February and Friday 22 March)
