INFO

Weaving the depth of summer into the long hours of the day, spirits are lifted high and the potency of the sun recharges every fibre of our being. Dedicating our weekend the simple notion of being, we will have this long weekend cherish the long days out in nature, practicing and eating together.

We will unfold with a long dynamic morning flow practice, treating our body temple to movement and breath. During the day there will be time to take walks, paddle in the sea,  read in the peace of the garden and walk through the ancient forests.

 

The retreats starts perfectly on the new moon, a potent evening full of realisation and intention set in with a cacao ceremony.

THE PRACTICE

This retreat will consist of strong Vinyasa flow, nourishing Yin Yoga & ceremonies.

Each day will open in silence, with herbal tea from the main house kitchen. We will meet in the rooftop shala and dive into a 2 hours creative and dynamic vinyasa class with pranayama and meditation woven in. In the invigorating physical practice, there will be lots of chances to explore challenging poses and to deepen the quality of your own practice. 

 

To slow down the days, in the evening we will meet again to dive into more rejuvenating + restorative practices such as Yin or ceremonial practice.

We will also have the chance to break down inversions one afternoon in a workshop, answering all your questions from how to begin inversions or how to take the next step.

Location

VENUE

Where forest meets the sea, our island accommodation is tucked away from the noise of the city and hum of other people. Our home for the 4 days is nestled in a charming woodland, an old farmhouse turned into a bright and cosy venue. Surrounded by beautiful old trees and laying under the darkest of skies, enjoy blankets of stars and nothing but silence interrupted only by the wind in the leaves. 

 

We are sat deep within Brattingborg Forest, 230 hectares of deciduous forest with hideen burial mounds of more than 5,000 years old from the Neolithic period. A place of mystery and magic, what more do we need!

Renovated in 2017, this 18th century farmhouse is a bridge between the present and days gone by.  Now beautifully furnished , coy and bright, you can still see the original essence of the house with exposed beams and the on the land with the old walnut and chestnut trees. 

The beautiful shala is hidden away in the roof of the house, high ceilings with beautiful wooden floors and original beams, overlooking into the surrounding garden. Its the perfect place to generate heat in your morning fiery flow, and to cosy up by candlelight at night.

One of the best parts of the place is the surrounding nature, we will have an opportunity to take a few walks and venture into the wild for communal meditations, deepening our practice and celebrating the vivid colours of nature as it retires from the passion of the summer months.

TESTIMONIALS

— M

“Faye creates a space in which I feel strong both physically and mentally. She has a dedicated yet playful approach to her teaching that makes me want to and dare to go new places in my practice. I’ve taken quantum leaps in what I’m capable of since going to my first class with her. Her approach inspires me and I feel more dedicated to yoga now than ever.”
