With Rachel Cross

Enjoy a Hatha based Yoga session on the Saturday afternoon, which will focus on re-connecting to nature. A gentle warm up will be followed by a series of held postures and your yoga session will finish with beautifully relaxing Yoga Nidra, to consolidate the work of the session.  


After a restful evening, the Sunday morning session will focus on re-awakening and rejuvenation ready for the day ahead.



With Claire Gurney

Boost your energy levels and stretch away tension with Pilates. This core focused method of exercise strengthens and lengthens your whole body, improving balance, posture and quality of movement. The focus is on controlled, co-ordinated movements, training your body to move at its best. The wellbeing weekend classes will be mat work classes involving a warm up, followed by standing and floor based exercises, finishing with a relaxing 10 minute stretch.


Pilates is suitable for people of all levels of fitness. It is a “low impact” more gentle form of exercise. It can be easily adapted to suit those with aches, pains, injuries and restricted mobility. 



With Julie Middleton

Meditation has many health benefits, it will help you to relax, quieten your the mind and reduce stress, and anxiety, to help bring more focus, creativity, and happiness into your life.


Using NLP techniques this guided "Being in nature Meditation” taking place on the Sunday of the retreat will encourage you to access the feelings of being in nature easily, to bring peace and wellbeing for the week ahead, as you end your weekend.           



Mindfulness is a mental state of non-judgemental awareness. Its is achieved by focusing on the present moment, while noticing and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Mindfulness comes from a traditional Buddhist concept. Buddhists believe by being more aware of the “lived experience” and our connection with others we can achieve a sense of wellbeing.


This mindfulness session with a nature theme will encouage you to focus on the present moment, your feelings and the beautiful surroundings of the Norfolk countryside. Mindfulness can bring focus creativity and happiness to your day by encouraging relaxation and wellbeing.
