I will be teaching on this retreat with Yoga on a Shoestring in Spring 2020. Braziers park is a beautiful hidden gem in the Oxfordshire countryside - the perfect place to relax and unwind, away from the chronic busyness of everyday life. We will enjoy twice-daily Yoga, country walks and delicious vegetarian food. Morven will be teaching all the Yoga and hosting you on this peaceful, nourishing weekend.
About braziers park
This hidden treasure, set deep in the beautiful countryside of south Oxfordshire, offers a relaxing holiday in nature less than two hours from London. This weekend retreat is an opportunity to revitalise and enjoy reconnecting with self and others.
Braziers Park is a warm country manor house (formally home to 007!), set deep in beautiful countryside and the rolling Chiltern Hills of South Oxfordshire, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The location is perfect for a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating retreat.
The old manor is Grade II listed in the strawberry gothic style, it has so much character and beauty. Real log fires, plentiful sofas and a grand piano are amongst its charms - all set in 57 acres of land with beautiful gardens. Braziers is a working eco-community with sheep, chickens, a walled vegetable garden and an ancient orchard. The community welcomes you to enjoy the rustic old charm of Braziers Park and join in with the community.
The first class with Morven will be on Friday evening. This will be a gentle open flow to help you unwind from your journey and ease into the retreat. Then together the group will enjoy a delicious dinner. On Saturday there will be two classes. A long, more dynamic morning class to align to body and breath followed later on by a late afternoon class where we will slow things down and enjoy a deep relaxation.
Sunday morning will start with a strong morning practice then another delicious breakfast. The group will come together for a meditation walk and closing circle before lunch and then say our goodbyes to end the retreat.
Each day after morning yoga there will be the opportunity to walk, have a massage or relax in one of the comfy lounges by a roaring fire or take a long bath. This is a very special place indeed!
Arrival time on the Friday is from 3pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5pm. The weekend will finish on the Sunday after lunch.
