3 Day Luxurious Winter Yoga Retreat

A private and secluded country-house in the heart of an idyllic hamlet in England, UK, Poundon House is the perfect location for a weekend away from it all. With a panoramic view of the beautiful countryside, you will experience a breath of fresh air and a sense of serenity as soon as you step onto these lands. With a welcoming ambiance, the house envelops you with warmth and tranquility - perfectly suited for Yogakutir's 3 Day Luxurious Winter Weekend Yoga Retreat. 

The days will begin with silent meditation, pranayama and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class focusing on hatha yoga. Flowing, traditional hatha yoga sessions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana, pranayama, hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for 2 hours. You will then have breakfast followed by free time, massages and then the afternoon yoga practice. In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema and chanting.

The surrounding countryside offers an abundance of walks and the grounds offer many places just to sit in nature and read a book or simply be. There will be massages on offer in the free time, or curl up on one of the big sofas to read or enjoy an afternoon nap.

The cost includes your accommodation, daily meditation, all yoga classes and workshops and delicious homemade organic vegetarian food. Massage treatments are available at an additional cost.

Going by air, book a flight going to Bristol Airport where you can just rent a car. By road, you enter the county along the M5 from London or the Midlands, by the M4 or the A4 to Bath, the A38 through Bristol, the A361 which bisects the county, with a few breaks, from Frome to Tiverton, or the A37 which bisects it from Bristol to Yeovil, the mighty A303 from London, its gentler sister the A30 through Yeovil, the A39 if you’re coming along the seaboard of Exmoor.

Packed to the rafters with artisans, historic buildings, beautiful independent shops and creative people, Frome is a wonderfully vibrant and eventful town. It is the perfect destination for discerning tourists looking for something just a little bit different on visits to Somerset. A town with a charming historic centre, it has a wealth of architectural interest alongside a thriving contemporary and performing arts scene. Frome is also the original Somerset Market Town, a hugely important destination hosting a thriving market since the time the ink was still wet on The Domesday Book. This tradition continues today with regular markets every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Frome, Somerset is 35 miles away from Bristol Airport. Bristol is the local airport on the A38, and Exeter airport’s not far away. Even Heathrow is this side of London, and Birmingham International is easily reachable by road and rail.
