Retreat: Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat with Anna Taylor, May 24th - 27th 2024, Cornwall


Space is one of the most precious gifts that we can offer ourselves - space to pause, space to connect, space to breathe, be and deeply rest. It is in these moments of pausing that we tend to step back and see ourselves more clearly. We create space to tend to that which needs nurturing and nourishing. We refuel ourselves so that we can move forward with greater energy and inspiration.

This 4 Day retreat, set in the beautiful Erth Barton in Cornwall, will offer you an opportunity to do just that. The weekend will combine mindful yoga, meditation to deep relaxation to support you in both resting and recharging. We will take time to soak up and savour both our practice and the warmer, lighter, brighter energy of spring as it comes into full swing in the beautiful Cornish countryside.
