This retreat takes place at at the gorgeous Sussex Country Yurt, near Warnham. Set on the grounds of a private estate, the yurt is cosy and warm come rain or shine.

We keep the woodburner stoked throughout the day and provide plenty of light refreshments alongside our buffet lunch - so there is nothing for you to do except show up in some comfy clothes and let us take care of you.


Join us for a day of yoga, reflexology and creativity for well-being at the stunning Sussex Country Yurt where we’ll shake off the dust of winter and beckon in the glorious Spring season…

Retreat date: Sunday 28th April 2019 / Booking LIVE!

Retreat Timings: 11:00 to 16:00

Retreat Location: Sussex Country Yurt, RH12 3SQ

Retreat Leaders: Georgie (GLO Yoga ) and Ellie (Surrey Art School)

We’ll start the day with some awakening yoga practice focusing on the solar plexus as we prepare to rise, breathe and hit the power button! The solar plexus (aka Manipura) is a fiery chakra bringing us warmth, strength, energy and light, and is home to our feelings of power, self-esteem, vitality and our will for transformation. Connecting to our solar plexus chakra as we emerge from the winter and rise into our summer selves, we’ll move consciously with our breath through traditional sun salutations plus some more playful variations as well as enjoying a revitalising Dancing Warrior Flow.

This will be followed by a gorgeous reflexology taster session led by our super lovely Heather aka Magnolia tree therapies. She’ll show you how to press your own buttons - using reflexology techniques that will boost you energy levels and leave you feeling balanced and grounded. She’ll also be offering all you lucky yogis a free hand-massage at the end of the session.

As usual we’ll then be treating you to a delicious vegetarian buffet lunch by the fire where we’ll have the chance to sit, chat and share our thoughts on the morning.

In the afternoon we’ll be taking the focus inward, with a self-reflective meditation led by the lovely Ellie (SAS founder) following up with an afternoon of creative visualisation and intention setting. We’ll create a seasonal vision board (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) to help you see you year clearly and create a focus for each phase of the year.

We’ll close the day with some collective breathwork, a huge hug and a gift bag for you to take away as a gentle reminder to take care of yourself in the months ahead.

With Spring just around the corner, now is truly the time to rise and shine! Please note: both the Yoga and Art activities are suitable for all levels and no prior experience is needed to enjoy this beautiful mindful day. Spaces are super limited on these small, intimate seasonal gatherings, so book soon if you’re keen to join us! Full booking terms and conditions are here.

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that leads to deep relaxation and will leave you feeling zen.

As usual we’ll end the day with a cosy fire-side chat and some collective breath work before sending you away with a huge hug and a lovely self-care goody bag!

Yoga, Creativity and Well-being Retreat

If you go down to the woods today you might be surprised at the benefits to your overall well-being that spending some time amongst the trees can provide. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of forest bathing, we'll be heading back into the woods for our Autumn Yoga and Art retreat to ground ourselves from root to tree top.


Event date: Sunday 30th September 2018

Event time: 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

Event Location: Surrey Hills Yurts, Logmore Lane, Westcott, RH4 3JN

Event Leaders: Georgina Oldfield (GLO Yoga Sussex) & Ellie Green (Surrey Art School)

Be like a tree. Stay Grounded. Connect to your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing - Joanne Rapits

Come down to the woods with us for a magical experience inspired by the wonders of the beautiful woodland at our stunning retreat site in the heart of the Surrey Hills.

The focus of this full day retreat is to ground ourselves - in a calm space that will help us reconnect to our core purpose -  and for this we are using the trees as inspiration.

Over the course of the day you will take part in two workshops:

The first - a tree inspired yoga class that will help you to draw your energy back down to the ground and help you find stability and strength in your yoga practice. We will be awakening and activating the Muldhara or root chakra - the body's most primal and fundamental energy centre associated with instinct, survival and safety and closely connected to the earth and nature.

The second - a tree inspired art workshop where you'll be creating your own 'tree spirit' that will be installed on a tree of your choosing at the site. We'll then be using fallen leaves to create some crisp, detailed monoprints using a vegetable base printing ink. Finally we'll build a mindful fire and share our wishes and dreams for the season by adding a log to the fire.

As usual we'll be providing a warming and hearty vegetarian lunch from the outdoor kitchen and will be dining fire-side whilst chatting and warming our cockles

We'll also be inviting back Magnolia Tree therapies to offer another FREE REFLEXOLOGY taster session - this one using pressure points on the hands and feet to re-energise and balance the body.

Expect a warming gathering of like-minded people, where you can make a bit of time to be creative but also to reflect and reframe in preparation for the Autumn season. You'll also get a screen-printed goodie bag to take away on the day!

As Surrey Hills Yurts is a totally eco-friendly site we encourage car-sharing to this event!

What you say about our retreats:

The Art & Yoga retreat was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday treating yourself to some self-care...We've all seen the Mandala colouring books but knowing how to create your own Mandala is a lovely thing to learn. This combined with the yoga session with Glo Yoga out in a field in the Surrey Hills...wow! Just beautiful!
