WHAT TO EXPECT

Your PERFECTLY PREPARED luxury yoga retreat begins with a very warm welcome and a refreshing drink upon arrival.  After settling into your room, join your fellow guests downstairs in the grand dining room for a dinner of indulgent home-made vegetarian delights, carefully prepared just for you by our chef and an introduction to your beginners yoga short course.  Later that evening, enjoy an enchanting candle-lit Yin yoga class as the sun sets over the 400 acre deer park and abbey ruins.  Then relax and sink into pure comfort in one of our stylish luxury bedrooms with views of the surrounding countryside estate.

On the second day of your retreat, uplift your body and spirit as you make your way through the National Trust gardens to our chosen outdoor* yoga site, where you'll experience  your first "instructional" yoga class surrounded by the majestic abbey ruins.

 

Upon return to the house, enjoy a plentiful breakfast with as much Betty's herbal and fruit tea as you can manage, then take time to relax in our cosy lounge with your favourite book, treat yourself (or a loved one) to a unique gift from our pop-up shop or spoil yourself with a massage* from our skilled therapist - the choice is yours.

 

After our signature afternoon-tea style lunch, you will have the chance to explore the awe-inspiring Fountains Abbey and discover the elegance of the Studley Royal water garden; follow riverside paths and find classical statues, follies and surprise views designed to make you catch your breath. Stroll down avenues lined with trees and find the many delights waiting for you at this wonderfully uplifting place. Discover more at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/fountainsabbey.

 

Later that evening join your fellow yogis for your second "instructional" yoga class where you will be learning more techniques and expanding the sequence. Following that, a scrumptious dinner and surprise evening entertainment await you, before retiring again to your comfortable room so that you can feel ready and rested for the next day.

On the third and final day of your PERFECTLY PREPARED retreat, wake up to your third "instructional" yoga class at another location within the estate grounds, then indulge in our freshly prepared breakfast delights.  There will be another opportunity to relax, explore the local deer park or spoil yourself with a unique souvenir from our pop-up shop before lunch.

 

At 3pm join your fellow yogis for your final yoga practice of the retreat.  At a spectacular location within the Fountains Abbey estate  you will put together all of the skills you have learnt over the weekend, and feel uplifted as you reflect on your time with us.

 

You will receive expert guidance during all of your "instructional" classes and useful handouts to take away.  This retreat is designed to give you the confidence to take forward your at-home or in-class practice and is a wonderful gentle introduction for anyone curious or just starting out.
