Exclusively for women, our September retreat is set in the beautiful surroundings of Walcot Hall in Shropshire. Designed to encourage relaxation, creativity and positivity, the retreat includes beginners yoga, delicious food and artist-led activities. You can try gentle and energising yoga in the elegant Walcot Hall ballroom, with our experienced and supportive tutor. Then celebrate the transition from Summer to Autumn and join our resident artist in the beautiful grounds, to explore your creativity and reconnect with nature. Each evening we’ll gather to share stories at the table and enjoy a nourishing dinner, freshly prepared by our resident chef Tallulah. On Wednesday evening why not take the opportunity to dine locally in the pretty town of Bishop's Castle, the historic town of Ludlow or at the Powis Arms Pub, located at the bottom of Walcot Hall's drive. Expect a warm welcome and to meet new friends - we look forward to seeing you there!
