Winter Pilates & Mindfulness Retreat, Lewes, South Downs
29TH NOVEMBER – 1ST DECEMBER 2019
THE VENUE – WOW…
You’re invited to…breathe, relax and enjoy this lovely historic house. Stretch in the gardens. Stargaze at the fire-pit. Take an uplifting walk up on the Downs to forage. Listen to the birdsong. Ghost-hunt for the Bloomsbury Group….or just curl up fire-side with a book. If you’d like to learn if Picasso, Virginia Woolf, or Keynes stayed in your room, you can discover more from reading a few books in the library….
THE WEEKEND – In a nutshell
Friday start your retreat off with arrival drinks and nibbles then settle yourselves down, unpack & relax. You will then have a wonderful Pilates session designed to focus the mind and relax the body. In the evening you will then be invited to a meditation where we will learn the concepts of Mindfulness through a meditative body scan.
Saturday your day will be filled with an invigorating Pilates session in the morning, followed by a Mindful walk in the beautiful South Downs after breakfast and finally another Pilates session just before dinner.
Sunday morning we will have a class where we bring it all together and just do some lovely mindful movements. We finish off the retreat with a Calm Abiding Meditation which will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
