Join us for our popular Summer Yoga Retreat set in the Vale of the White Horse. This is our fourth visit to this stunning location. With outdoor Yoga Classes, meditation, walks along the ridgeway, workshops and much more, we offer a perfectly balanced schedule giving you plenty of activities, whilst ensuring you leave the retreat relaxed and rejuvenated. We will be joined again by the Beechen family caterers, Bob and Kathy who will be cooking up more of her much loved, homemade vegetarian treats.
Each of our Retreats has a theme running though the weekend such as Mudra and Bandha, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and The five Sheaths of Consciousness. The theme for this retreat will be confirmed nearer the time.
At our last Retreat we made the video below to show you what it's like to be on a Retreat with us.
The Court Hill Centre is delightfully rural and tranquil, located in the Vale of the Whitehorse in Wantage, Oxfordshire. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful countryside, it is the perfect place to unwind and escape the stresses of everyday life.
Accommodation at this venue is in traditional bunkhouse style. There are two sizes of dormitory; 4 bed and 12 bed. There is one 12 bed dorm, available to women only. The 4 bed dormitories have two bunk beds and can be booked for 3/4 if you are travelling in a group. Single occupancy rooms are also available. The accommodation is basic, and all rooms have access to shared bathroom facilities. Bedding is provided, but you will need to bring your own towel.
Nearby train stations are at Didcot and Oxford, and there are good road links via the M4 and M40.
