Deep Nature Retreat: Autumn Equinox Yoga and Nature Immersion

A very special collaboration with the magical &Sister.

Join us in the beautiful surroundings of Poundon House in Oxford for a long weekend of deeply healing nature-based practices, delicious food and Yoga. Immerse yourself in your practice and be supported by Alicia Roscoe from &Sister and Ruby Reed from Advaya Initiative as we celebrate the Autumn Equinox and the movement towards the next stage of the year.

“Night and day are again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium - dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. The cycle of the natural world is moving towards completion, the Sun’s power is waning and from now on the nights grow longer and the days are are shorter and cooler. The sap of trees returns back to their roots deep in the earth, changing the green of summer to the fire of autumn, to the flaming reds, oranges and golds.”

Two yoga classes will be taught each day by Alicia Roscoe, Yoga teacher and co-founder of &Sister Retreats, and Ruby Reed, co-founder of Advaya Initiative. These classes will be open to all levels. While building strength and flexibility over the 3 days, we will prioritise the development of breath and incorporate elements of movement, chanting, pranayama and meditation.

Delicious and healthy breakfasts, lunch & dinners will be cooked and prepared by our talented and healing chefs Atty and Bea. Recipes will be inspired by balancing Ayurvedic traditions using locally sources and organic ingredients wherever possible.

We will lead walks in the magical surroundings each day, and host optional nature workshops, from sit-spots to deep awareness practices that connect us deeply with the natural world. We will set up an art station too, and throughout the weekend we invite you to paint, draw and read, engaging with your natural creativity whenever you can.

There will of course be plenty of opportunity to relax in our beautiful and luxurious home and it’s gardens and take all the time you need to rest for the most important thing of all, your self-care.

Our beautiful home for the long weekend: Poundon House#

Poundon House has been owned and loved by the Roscoe family for nearly 40 years. Natalie & Alicia (&Sister) grew up at Poundon House and now both work for the family events business. As a family and a business they have hosted many events over the years, from sprawling house parties to 300-strong fusion weddings! Their aim is to share the experience of being in a beautiful country house for the weekend, away from the city, surrounded by nature and, in this case immersing yourself in yoga, delicious nourishing food and enhancing your own well-being. Natalie and Alicia set up the retreat side of Poundon House in August 2015, with the venue quickly becoming a popular destination for retreats and &Sister evolved.
