The daily programme

Flowing, traditional hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of deep awareness, surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of yogic philosophy that can be applied to our daily lives. Typically each class will last for two 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. This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga.

Some testimonials

"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

"The house is beautifully appointed and has very comfortable luxurious rooms, the perfect place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and find some well needed peace. I will definitely be going back soon." MK

"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 nurturing and calm. A joy!" 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
