Weekend Retreat

Nourish your mind, body, and spirit with soulful yoga practices, beautiful landscapes, luxury stay, wholesome food, nature's inspiration and a community of like-minded beings.

Ayurveda is the practice of recognising your constitution and using this knowledge to make simple life adjustments that lead you towards greater wellness. 

During this retreat, you will be offered practical tools for living aligned with your nature as well as a clear approach to understanding and nurturing the wellness of your mind, body and soul; receiving a balanced combination of theory and application for a weekend that will have positive lasting effects on your life (if you decide to apply what you learn/know which is the essence of wisdom.)

Food will be lovingly catered by Monique Thissen, a trained chef  & yoga teacher who has done studies in Ayurveda and will prepare homely meals, organic where possible , following a seasonal rhythm and diet principles from Ayurveda.

​Get replenished at the  long, tree-lined garden that stretches from the house all the way to the river’s edge, ending in a large jetty overlooking the Thames and Cookham Moor beyond. A peaceful sight of the river and its inhabitants;  42 different species of birds, including two swan families who forage under the weeping willow. ​This retreat is intentionally created to bring about self-knowledge,  a deeper sense of embodiment, mindfulness, empowerment and well-being.​A modern luxury stay surrounded by the natural beauty of Spring and the purifying river current running right in our backyard. 

 

Join us for a weekend of self-discovery, connection, wholesomeness and empowerment rooted in the wisdom of Ayurveda

Testimonials From Past Retreats

"The retreat was perfect, was enough yoga time but mixed with personal time during the day. The restorative meditation was the best and so so so needed. Never knew I needed it so much until I was there. Thank you Amor for being amazing in every way. Your presence and style of teaching suited the settings and everything was perfect.” Lucy 

 

 

“I found the retreat on google and came from the US. I didn’t know what to expect considering I didn’t know anyone else going and had never taken one of Amor’s classes. Anyway, it was one of the best experiences I’ve had! I loved Amor’s yoga classes. She offers an all levels class that can be accessible to anyone but still challenging. I was transformed during her Yin and Yoga nidra sessions and was moved by her words of wisdom. My favorite part was doing rooftop yoga overlooking the sun setting over the sea. I also attended a hiking excursion and paddle boarding and left feeling enriched, relaxed, and peaceful. Thank you for this experience!!” Alissa

“Beautiful group of souls together to improve practice, focus on relaxation and wellbeing and be guided by a beautiful and insightful teacher in surroundings that were totally conducive to a yoga retreat.”
