Yoga

Each morning will start with some breathing and a short meditation before we move into an invigorating, creatively sequenced vinyasa flow practice taught with music and including modifications for all levels.

The afternoon sessions will be slow, nurturing and calming, gentle, restorative sessions, closing with a longer meditation or guided relaxation.

Sessions will include reflections on philosophy, psychology or neuroscience to deepen understanding and inspire discussion.

The yoga studio is newly developed and fully equipped with mats, bolsters, blocks, bricks, straps and blankets!

Accommodation

Rooms are comfortable and lovingly decorated with spacious twins and smaller singles. All rooms will be single occupancy and larger rooms will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Bathrooms are shared, typically between 2 or 3 people.

There’s plenty of communal space to lounge around, relax, read & chat including a cosy sitting room, dining room and quiet room with stained glass windows.

Food & drink

The food at Fintry is home-cooked and sourced, wherever possible, from the kitchen garden. Meals will be plant-based.

There will be a fruit bowl for light breakfast for those who want, a yummy and substantial brunch, afternoon tea & cake, and dinner. Fruit & tea are available between meals. The retreat will be alcohol free.

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

I couldn't think of anything I would change about the retreat, it was truly a great weekend. Studio was perfect, nice floor, lighting, views. Food was delicious and plentiful.

Jenny

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

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.

I've already recommended it to many friends, and would definitely be up for a longer period next time. Sad to come home at the end of it.

Kaye

I enjoyed the great yoga, lovely people and relaxed and friendly nature of it all. I felt I could really disconnect. Loved everything. Thank you for your wonderful energy - it was a great weekend.

Sarah L.

I wanted to say what a wonderful time I had and how profoundly grateful I am to you for the lessons I have learnt through your teaching of yoga.

Gemma

The people i was sharing with were wonderful and made me feel welcomed. The studio has a great view. I loved overlooking the green with animals.

Location and getting there

Fintry is situated in the village of Brook, south of Godalming and is easily accessible from London and surrounding areas. The nearest railway station is Witley on the London Waterloo-Portsmouth line. A more frequent / faster service stops at Haslemere and Godalming (40-50min by train from London) and taxis are available at these stations.

The grounds at Fintry are lovingly cared for and offer a variety of places and settings for wandering and contemplation. There are also plenty of walks further afield. This is the perfect setting to switch off, relax and take some time to de-stress and reconnect to calm and peace.
