27 – 29 October 2017
West Lexham is a unique venue perfect for a yoga retreat, 2 hours from London, 75 minutes from Cambridge and 45 minutes from Norwich. Set in a protected valley it is verdant and bursting with nature. Explore floating water meadows, ancient trees, lakes and formal gardens. The estate is 90% run on renewables with solar panels for power and a woodchip boiler for heat.
Everything’s been built using traditional skills and eco building techniques using natural or reclaimed materials. The furniture is hand made and the whole location is filled with as much artistic flair as possible. It’s an oasis in which to actually live that creative, healthy and empowered future, to bring out the best in everyone
Our yoga weekend will begin on Friday evening at 5:30pm with a gentle asana practice and a relaxing Yoga Nidra session, followed by dinner at 7:30pm.
Before breakfast on Saturday, we will practise from 8:30am to 10:30am (asana, pranayama and meditation). After lunch you will be free to explore the gardens or the countryside, or just to chill out. Our afternoon class will be from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, and will introduce more pranayama and meditation techniques. Dinner will be at 7:30 pm.
Sunday morning’s class will be from 9:00 to 11:00am, and will again incorporate asana, pranayama and meditation. After that we’ll enjoy a delicious brunch. At 1:00pm there will be a 1-hour workshop on how to keep the benefits of the retreat for longer and tips to practice at home. A farewell treat will be served at 2:00pm.
The weekend provides the opportunity to deeply nourish your mind, body and spirit, to deepen your yoga practice and to rest and rejuvenate.
The yoga weekend includes five yoga workshops, lifestyle and street language philosophy, with a practice themed + sequenced around the idea of stimulating the elimination of built up both physical and mental emotional. Classes will be suitable for all levels of experience.
Between classes there will be free time to finally finish that book, snuggled next to the woodburners, or to treat yourself with a well-deserved massage. You can also go wandering around the estate or down the beautiful Holkham beach.
The healthy seasonal vegetarian and organic delicious meals will be prepared with love by our private chef. A great emphasis will be put on nutrition to support both your practice and life.
This yoga retreat is led by Margherita Dal Pra, the founder of YogaM. Margherita is a very experienced yoga and meditation teacher with 14 years of teaching experience. Her classes are a synthesis of Anusara bio-mechanical principles of alignment, along with heart-centered themes and the lineage and depth of knowledge of Tantric Hatha energetics in the Para Yoga® style.
This yoga retreat is open to all ages and levels of fitness and experience. Every session will have attention to detail (alignment), awareness of breath (pranayama), openness to grace (attitude) and intelligent sequencing (vinyasa krama). The morning yoga classes will be more upbeat and energizing, and the afternoon classes more relaxed.
All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and individual attention.
