About Poundon House

The Queen Anne style Poundon house is stunning and spacious; set within six acres of landscaped gardens on the edge of the Oxfordshire-Buckinghamshire border. Despite the peace and tranquility of the surrounding countryside, Poundon is within easy reach of London, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, the Cotswolds and Bristol with fantastic transport links to the all of these places.

Once you arrive at Poundon House, you will feel immediately at home. Whether it is settling down in front of a roaring open fire, taking a long bath in one of the unique bathrooms or going for a quiet walk in the apple orchard, for over a century Poundon has been the perfect place to escape the bustle of city life.

The 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, pranayama and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free time, massages and then the afternoon yoga practice.

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

Some testimonials

"Massive rooms with wooden floors, high ceilings, and original features and fireplaces provide super spaces to dine, read, relax, and practice yoga, while the bedrooms are individually furnished, tasteful and comfy. There are no modern distractions such as televisions or speakers, and no en-suites, but there are enough bathrooms for it not to feel a chore to have to share."

"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
