Twice Daily Yoga Class
The yoga classes are for all levels, with several options given so there is something for everyone. Fern and Lynne aim to create a supportive and nurturing environment within which students can safely explore and deepen all layers of their yoga practice, and reconnect to themselves. The morning practice will begin with a 30-minute meditation, followed by a 90-minute energising vinyasa flow practice. The evening classes will be more restorative in nature to encourage a deep softening and unfurling of both body and mind.
Autumn Floristry Workshop
King-Wey from Alright Petal Flower will be teaching you how to make your own hand tied bouquet using seasonal flowers and foliage, taking inspiration from the seasons and the environment that surrounds us.
We will create an environment where you feel free to experiment and to try new things. As well as creating your own floral masterpiece to take home, we will be discussing how creativity and mindfulness often go hand in hand, and how slowing down to notice the beauty that surrounds us can inspire happiness and wellbeing.

your hosts for the weekend
Yoga Instructor - Fern first discovered yoga in 2007, when she moved to London age 24, and was immediately hooked. Using it as a way to stretch out her muscles and counteract miles of daily cycling, she slowly began to – as many of those who initially come to yoga for the physical benefits do – find a deeper appreciation of the practice beyond the asana, leaving each class with a calmer mind and a stronger sense of self. She firmly believes that yoga should be for everybody, and creates a safe space within which students can explore their edges and deepen their personal practice and understanding of their Self.
Yoga Instructor - Lynne accidentally stumbled into a yoga class at her gym a few years ago, and immediately became an addict. Always playful and light-hearted, Lynne’s classes are creatively and intelligently sequenced to explore the body’s full range of motion with grace, ease, intention and curiosity. Underpinned by studies in philosophy and music, her warmth and compassion encourages students to reconnect with the physical, energetic and emotional experience of the body, working to effect transformational shifts at an energetic level: brightening, soothing, replenishing as needed. Particular attention is consistently paid to cultivating a powerful, smooth and calming breath, whilst taking delight in the interplay between invigorating challenge, soft release and blissful relaxation.
