retreat / ri'tr:t/ v. & n. n. A quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax.
25th-27th September 2020 I am delighted to announce dates for a possible retreat this year (after my May weekend was sadly cancelled). All being well and Government restrictions allowing, I am very much hoping that I can lead a yoga retreat at Tilton House at the end of September. It will be dependent on yoga studios and gyms being able to open up and people from different households being able to exercise together. Watch this space! I also have 14th-16th May 2021 booked - a date for your diary! Please get in touch if you are interested in coming along for the September weekend. Email me email@example.com or phone 07952 931 383
Treat yourself to a few days away and give yourself the space to stretch, breathe and relax and the time to restore, rebalance and recharge.
Life can get pretty hectic with all its many demands - trying to balance our home life with our work life. We often spend so much time seeing to other people's needs, our own are often last on the list. I am a firm believer that everyone can benefit from some time out every so often - to restore, rebalance and recharge - to pause and breathe - to then return to our "regular" lives feeling both rested and rejuvenated.
A weekend away in the beautiful Sussex countryside will give you the opportunity to do just that - either on your own, or with a friend, partner or family member. We have exclusive use of the gorgeous Tilton House in Sussex and all meals are provided for us - cooked by an AMAZING, on-site chef with many ingredients fresh from the garden - what a treat not having to cook! We have a morning and evening yoga practice every day - coming together in the very special woodland yurt for our practice. The time in between is your own - to walk (we are within the South Downs National Park), to sleep, to snuggle up in the wonderful library and read, to visit the neighbouring Charleston House, or to sit in the garden and enjoy the views. There is also a cedar wood sauna that we can use, a tennis court if anyone fancies a game and holistic massages and treatments are available on site in the garden cabin.
Tilton House is a very special place and I have stayed there three times before. Each time has been truly magical and we all find ourselves saying "Ah! This is wonderful!" all weekend!
"This is something that you have to do! I left Sarah's retreat feeling so relaxed and looked after. It's an experience I'll never forget and a treat I would like to have again!"
