Barefoot Birmingham Yoga Weekender - retreat to the Country
Posted on January 30, 2017 · Posted in Barefoot, Past Events

Come escape to the country for a weekend of yoga and deep relaxation at the stunning and stylish 42Acres retreat centre near Frome, Somerset Friday 5 to Sunday 7 May 2017.

Check in from 5pm on Friday, check-out 4pm on Sunday. 

What to expect.
A magical, luxurious weekend of yoga and the chance to kick back, re-charge, walk in glorious countryside and enjoy connecting with fellow yogis. There will also be plenty of opportunity (and lots of cosy spaces) to spend time reconnecting with yourself. Massage and holistic therapists will be on hand to help soothe and rejuvenate. Everything is optional, do as much or as little as you choose.

Yoga.
Teacher will be *Faye Fenton, founder of Barefoot.
Flowing, accessible yoga to work your body, lift your spirit and calm the mind. Each morning will start, not too early, with a 1.5-2 hour class to include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on assists and guided relaxation. There will also be late afternoon / early evening yoga sessions, giving us lots of time to explore yoga postures and principles in more depth than in studio classes. Expect lots of laughter (falling over guaranteed), and to leave feeling lighter, happier and totally re-charged. Beginners welcome.

Accommodation.
Bedroom options range from Luxe Dorm sleeping 3 people (3 x small double futons) to Twins, Singles, Doubles and a Master Suite. Some rooms are en-suite, and shared bathrooms are plentiful and right next to the sleeping quarters – you won’t need to to wander down hallways in your dressing gown. Luxury linen and towels provided. 42Acres also has several beautiful communal spaces including a library and a meeting and reading space. You won’t want to leave.

Food.
Delicious organic food will be served throughout the weekend. All meals are vegetarian. Read more about Head Chef Mark Mabon here.
