Glastonbury summer Yoga retreat weekend
Stay a stunning home with rolling views of Somerset and Glastonbury Tor
Friday 19th ~ Sunday 21st June 2020
Soak up the magic of Glastonbury during this weekend of yoga and relaxation over the summer solstice.
Staying in a beautifully built eco house just 5 minutes drive from the town of Glastonbury.
Practice Yoga in the light and airy Yoga Shala with rolling views of Somerset and Glastonbury Tor off in the distance.
Arrive Friday afternoon and settle into your room, meet your fellow retreaters, enjoy a coffee, tea or cool drink and a snack while lazing in a hammock and taking in the views of the stunning countryside.
Every retreat Rachael runs has a different theme depending on the time of the year, the cycle of the moon and the group brings this all together.
Dive in on Friday evening with our first Yoga class together, either in the Shala or outside if the weather allows.
Tuck into dinner which can easily be catered for whether you are vegan, gluten free or dairy free (all food is vegetarian and organic where possible).
Enjoy ‘me time’ or chat with your new friends, whether sat in the lounge on the comfy chairs, out on the decking, in the hot tub or have a jump about on the huge trampoline!
Help yourself to breakfast in the morning, roll out your mat around mid morning for a 90 minute flowing practice to wake you up and energise you for an afternoon of exploring Glastonbury town.
Take a stroll into Glastonbury (approx 1 hour) or jump into the car and have a mini adventure. Walk to the Glastonbury Tor, explore Glastonbury Abbey, treat yourself to a massage at The Goddess House, go shopping for Yoga treats, crystals, clothes, gifts and have lunch in one of the many cafes on the High Street - all unique and offering a range of meals. Visit Chalice Well Gardens and drink the red waters or even dip your feet into the cold waters!
If you prefer you can stay in the house and read a book, relax in the hot tub, make a fuss of the horses on site or book a private 121 yoga class with Rachael.
Saturday evening we return to the Yoga Shala to move and ease our minds and bodies before sitting down to dinner and retreating for the night.
Sunday morning we start a little later to give you time for a lay in and to pack with Yoga at 11am.
Our weekend concludes around 1pm with hugs and goodbyes and wishing you a safe onward journey.
