We’ll enjoy a dynamic vinyasa flow yoga session every day with modifications throughout for different levels. In the afternoons we’ll balance the morning flow with a calming gentle flow and restorative practice where there’s a chance to stay with each pose for longer and explore physical or mental experience. Sessions will include movement, breathwork, guided meditation and yoga nidra all woven around a theme for the weekend.
The yoga studio overlooks the beautiful courtyard and countryside. While some mats and props are provided it’s a great idea to bring your own mat.
Potash Barns consists of a set of lovingly converted Grade II listed farm buildings with shared twin accommodation.
The setting is intimate with space for only 13 people and the hosts are incredibly welcoming and friendly. There’s plenty of communal space to lounge around, relax, read & chat, plus 3 kitchens and bathrooms (shared by 4-5 people each).
A very limited amount of single rooms may be available at the neighbours.
There will be a light breakfast with bread and fruit for those who want, a yummy and substantial home-cooked vegetarian brunch, afternoon tea & cake and dinner. Fruit & tea are available between meals. The retreat will be alcohol free.
Some feedback from previous retreats at Potash Barns
“Thank you so much for such an interesting, enjoyable, exhilarating yet peaceful weekend. I truly loved all of it! So much to take away from one weekend.”Dan
“I really like your approach and find your calming energy radiating around the room just amazing. Your calming voice is very comforting, and yet you remain clear and composed, explaining each new move or next set of instructions so incredibly clearly.”Sylvie
“Interesting topics which really made practical sense in combination with the yoga sessions. The yoga studio was really wonderful - the views, the peacefulness and the sunsets were beautiful.”Sarah M.
“Asana, breathing, history and philosophy were brilliantly themed through the lessons. It was obvious that everything had been thoroughly prepared but it all still came across with a gentle passion and enthusiasm.”Robert

“I loved all of the pranayama breathing techniques you taught us, and have taken these away with me since last weekend, frequently using the nostril one at work, in moments of total stress.”Sylvie
