A weekend of relaxation, yoga, and nourishment for body and soul.

Cotswolds, UK

22-24 November 2019

SLOW DOWN RETREAT

A weekend of peace and tranquillity. Time for you. Time to slow down.

Time to rest, to read, to think, to sleep. 

Time spent surrounded by nature, walking in the countryside, or maybe just sitting and enjoying the beautiful views.

Time to move your body gently and see how that helps you to recharge, clear your mind, relax and unwind.

Time to gather around the table and eat delicious food, prepared (and cleared away!) for you. 

Time to talk and share with other like minded souls.

Our home for the weekend

Exclusive luxury accommodation at Cotswold Park Barns. Beautiful countryside views, clean and comfortable ensuite bedrooms, a large warm room for yoga, cosy spaces to relax and a hot tub.

Yoga to restore

Friendly and informal hatha yoga to relax and restore. Beginners are very welcome. This style of yoga includes a balance of pranayama (breathing practices) and asanas (physical postures), with plenty of time for relaxation.

Food to nourish

All of your meals are included and will be prepared by our private chef and nutritionist team. The healthy, hearty and comforting menu will support your mind and body well-being, helping you to feel nourished and cared for.

MEET THE TEAM

Jules

Founder of Slow Down Retreats and your host for the weekend.

I have designed a weekend that gives you the time and space to nurture yourself. Two days of peace and tranquillity. Two days of time for you. Time to slow down.

Time to rest, to read, to think, to sleep. Time spent surrounded by nature, walking in the countryside, or maybe just sitting and enjoying the beautiful views.

Time to move your body gently and see how that helps you to recharge, clear your mind, relax and unwind. Time to gather around the table and eat delicious food, prepared (and cleared away!) for you. Time to talk and share with other like minded souls.

Please join us for a weekend of time just for you. Time to slow down.

Belinda

Our yoga sessions will be designed and led by Belinda.

I have been offering a range of hatha yoga classes in Warwickshire for 20 years. I also run teacher training courses in the UK and worldwide, and have a specialism in women's health. I was recently featured in the BBC 1 documentary 'Health; Truth or Scare'.

Hatha yoga is a style of yoga which develops both flexibility and strength, and has many benefits. The asanas (physical postures) are done relatively slowly and deeply, rather than moving fast from one to the next.

My sessions are informal and welcoming. The atmosphere is relaxed with people feeling able to rest longer or to work deeper if they wish.

There are also plenty of laughs; yoga is a serious discipline with far reaching benefits yet my style is playful and exploratory.

Joss & Flo

Sisters Joss & Flo work together in their London based supper club business Wylde Feasts.

Joss is a trained chef and long-time foodie. Her love for seasonal foods and fresh cooking started from knee-high when learning to cook with her family from the ingredients in the garden.

With a passion for plant-based power, Joss knows how to sustain and surprise her diners on dishes that showcase the beauty and abundance of plants without sacrificing on flavour.

Flo, a registered Nutritional Therapist (MBant), will also be joining the retreat.

Together they serve delicious food whilst also explaining some of the medicinal properties along the way.

Their style is relaxed and homely, with a big emphasis on sharing and bringing people together around the table.
