“42 Acres is a truly magical retreat: a sacred space of calm and peacefulness set in the restorative nature of Somerset...” XB

“42 Acres is a magical haven. The unintrusively cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up to date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough.” SVS

"I am still feeling the positive effects from my break. The location was beautiful, the food fantastic, the people lovely and Dory, by far, is the best teacher I have had in 18 years..." M

"I really enjoyed it all and found the space and quiet I needed ! Doing so much yoga was great! You are both so gifted at facilitating ... so nurturing and calm.  A joy ! Xx" J 

"I really enjoyed it and I have to say that it was largely down to the skill of your facilitation and how well you work together. You both so clearly put happiness on the map from the beginning and it filtered thro. Everyone relaxed and smiled! I loved the gentle humour too. I also appreciated all the hard work behind the scene and your attention to detail. You were both so generous and thoughtful".  C

About Vigla
The first thing to strike you about Vigla Village is it's sublime location on the Ionian Coast of the Greek island of Kefalonia. It's a feast for the senses as you take in the intoxicating smell of the pine and eucalyptus trees and the crystal clear, deep blue of the Ionian sea. Coupled with the welcoming and open hearted, Greek hospitality of Anna and Angelos, you cannot help but begin to relax as soon as you arrive.

Perched high on a clifftop, the clean and comfortable apartments with private balconies, overlook the inspiring panorama. Just a short stroll away you can take the picturesque path down to Vigla's own private beach and the warm and inviting sea.

Vigla Village simply blows you away, it's the sort of place that you want to come back to time after time.

The daily programme
Each day will begin with optional meditation and pranayama followed by a morning asana class on our wonderful new yoga platform overlooking the endless blue ocean. The morning practise will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, slowly moving and building into a flowing and dynamic sequence. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience.

Morning practice will be followed by a hearty breakfast. Then you will be free to head off down to the beach, relax by the pool or explore the stunning beauty of the surroundings. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a second yoga session which will be a more gentle class. There will be one yoga free day during the week.

In the evenings, there's a charming traditional Greek restaurant just across the way from Vigla Village and another a short walk away in the town of Spartia. Lunch and dinner aren't included in the cost to give people the option to go for dinner as a group or self cater if they prefer, each apartment has a small kitchen.

Things to do
One could quite easily while away a week of deep rest and rujuvenation here, enjoying the wonderful private beach, swimming pool and tennis courts on offer. There's also plenty of space at Vigla Village to find a quiet spot in the shade of the trees enjoying the colours and fragrance of the beautiful flowers.

The local village, Spartia, also has its' own pretty beach just a 10 minute walk away and a small centre with a couple of shops and a restaurant.

For those of you with an adventurous spirit you could hire a car to explore the outstanding beauty of this island. Caves, boat trips, snorkelling, fishing, trips to stunning local villages and a visit to Myrtos, known to be one of the world's most beautiful beaches, are amongst some of the many things on offer in Kefalonia.

Comments from previous retreat:

'A note to say a huge thank you for a wonderful yoga holiday in beautiful Kefalonia. I had the most amazing time and am feeling totally refreshed and energised! Vigla was a perfect combination of stunning scenery, peaceful surroundings and warm hospitality from Anna and her family. Definitely somewhere I would love to go back to. I have also made so many new friends from our wonderful group.' Melissa

'My daughter and I have recently returned from your week in Kefalonia. I have done yoga for 40 years and in many parts of the world where I have lived but this was a wonderful experience as well as being a ‘holiday’ and one I hope to do again.

'Absolutely loved my Yoga days with Dory Walker. What an inspiration! She is professional, warm and motivating. Her style of Yoga with Pranayama and Nidra suited me perfectly. The weather was kind to us late September and the location peaceful. Kefalonia is an absolutely stunning and green island with lots to explore' Christine

Friday 27th - Monday 30th May 2016
With Dory Walker & Rory Viggers
From £298
(Suitable for all levels)

Our first extended weekend yoga retreat of the year since our Guardian recommended New Year gathering...

Holycombe is a serene haven of beauty and tranquillity. It is warm and welcoming with a purpose built space for yoga and beautiful gardens to relax in, you cannot help but fall in love with this very special place in the Cotswolds.

Set in a verdant wooded valley on the edge of the Cotswold village of Whichford, Holycombe is built on the grounds of a Norman castle, land which is believed to have been a sacred site many years before Roman occupation. Geomancers and dowsers claim that six leylines converge on the stone circle at the top field. 

A natural stream rises from a holy well in the nearby wood and passes through the grounds and down a waterfall. The sound of running water adds to the sense of peace and tranquillity in the grounds whilst a coppice provides a shady outdoor space and a campfire area a place for evening song and chats. A beautiful Garden Room is used for eating in doors whilst a rose-scented terrace is available for eating al-fresco. Holycombe is the perfect venue for that peaceful break and escape from our, all too often busy and stressful lives.

Sample Daily Programme:

Flowing, traditional hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for 2 hours.

The days will begin with silent meditation and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free time for massage treatments, nature walks and relaxing, hanging out in the gardens, reading, or maybe taking a gentle stroll to enjoy the nearby bluebell woods, and the afternoon yoga practice.

In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema and chanting.

You will probably not want to do much when you get to Holycombe except relax, soak in its surrounding beauty and go on Bluebell Walks in the nearby woods. Across a nearby meadow is the ancient Whichford woods with its many rare species of trees and plants, an abundance of wood anemones, primroses and bluebells. Wildlife abounds: everything from Muntjack to polecats and kingfishers. So walks are abundant and the grounds themselves peaceful and serenely beautiful.

Rooms are all unique, single and shared options. 
Please can you bring your own top and bottom sheet, pillow case and towels. If this is a problem please contact us.

We will also ask participants to help with cleaning up at meal times and prepping food. We will be one big family creating a new year to remember. Can’t wait to see you there.

Accommodation
West Lexham offers unique, beautiful and very comfortable accommodation with a mix of twin, double and triple rooms. We have also created space for a small dormitory for 4 people as a more affordable option.

There are luxurious en-suite rooms set around a courtyard adjacent to the yoga barn. All have underfloor heating and huge windows which flood the rooms with natural light. They combine rustic charm with funky modern twists.

Charming and cosy traditional flint cottages are also part of the Estate. Each one has a luxury vintage chic interior with twin or double bedrooms, a kitchen and shared bathroom. One cottage also has a lounge which can be used as a bedroom with two comfortable single sofa beds. This is also on offer at the mini dorm rate for those on a tight budget.
