Summer Yoga Retreat Weekend near the Dorset Coast
Bonhays eco Retreat Centre, West Dorset
22nd - 24th September 2017
Teacher: Lisa Powell
(Suitable for all levels)
Cost from £265
Bonhays is a beautiful eco Retreat Centre, nestled in the hills of West Dorset, between Bridport and Lyme Regis and just two miles from the sea.
The settling is secluded and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
Set around a central courtyard, with the soft curves of the straw buildings and the hills beyond, there is quiet and stillness here. Bonhays has lovely communal areas to relax and chat in as well as many peaceful and secluded spots for quiet and reflection. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool.
The coast and beaches are just 2 miles away if you want to get a dose of sea air and enjoy a beach walk, or you may simply want to enjoy a peaceful moment on the decking and watch the sunset, swim peacefully in the pool, share wonderful meals in the conservatory, practise yoga and meditation. Be and rejuvenate.
Evie, the chef at Bonhay’s sources organic ingredients locally if she has not grown them herself and then with her imaginative palette she produces lovely looking, healthy and very tasty food. All the food is vegetarian.
The daily program:
There will be a yoga class on Friday evening and meditation after dinner. On Saturday there will be 2 yoga classes, meditation and chanting, plus plenty of time to walk, rest relax or take a dip in the pool or even the sea. There will be a yoga class on Sunday morning before lunch and goodbyes.
Things to do:
There are plenty of lovely walks, local beaches to visit and ample space to simply relax.
Single, shared twin or double rooms are available. There are also two shepherd's huts set in a quiet corner looking up the Marshwood Valley, the huts have electricity, a wood burner and are fully insulted and fitted with an outside tap. They have a double bed so are suitable for one person or a couple. There is also the option to camp. Bathrooms, shower and toilet facilities are shared.
