Spring Weekend Women's Yoga Retreat in Norfolk, UK

Fishley Hall, near Norwich, Norfolk
Friday-Sunday, May 1st-3rd, 2020

Want time out from the demands of your busy life?

Ready to embrace your gentler cyclical rhythms and to reconnect to your feminine self?

Looking to boost your energy, creativity, health and well-being?

Spring - with its cleansing energy of hope and new beginnings - is the perfect moment to do all this. And my two-night Women's Yoga Retreat in a luxury country house in rural Norfolk is the perfect place.

Rest and self-care are much undervalued in our results-oriented world, but they are the secret to being well and living well - and to taking our truest and most vibrant self out into the world.

At this retreat, we'll practice gentle, self-reverent Yoga practice that will remind us that we are nature and that her cyclical rhythms ebb and flow in us, just as they do in the rest of the natural world around us.

In particular, we'll celebrate Spring's seasonal energy of re-emergence and vibrant growth.

As you gather with like-minded women away from the noise of life, you'll get the precious chance to put nurturing yourself ahead of caring for the needs others. To enjoy well-deserved rest, great company, fantastic food and self-pampering comfort.

If you'd like to gift yourself the life-enhancing benefits of a replenishing weekend of quality me-time, just sign up below ...

“Just fabulous! A lovely balance of gentle exercise, meditation, good food and lots of sleep in a wonderful location - how we should be living all the time.”

Tell me more ...

What?
This weekend retreat is based on my lifetime of experience as a busy woman living in a linear world. I spent many years ignoring my cyclical feminine reality to survive and succeed in that world.

But I reached a point that I could no longer ignore my body's alarm signals.

It's been nearly 20 years since I woke up to the fact that, as embodiments of nature's cycles, the source of our feminine power (whatever our age - pre- or post-menopausal) lies here.

So true feminine well-being and empowerment can only come from embracing our cyclical nature as a wonderful, valuable gift. We ignore and suppress this reality at our peril.

At this retreat, I'll share with you the lessons I've learned on my journey and my favourite tools for staying calm, well and connected to my feminine self while juggling many plates.

In our daily Yoga sessions, you'll get to nurture yourself with gentle and empowering practices - Yoga, Qigong, meditation, self-care - that will help you fall back (or deeper) in love with yourself as a woman.

And I'll share the precious cyclical framework that helps me daily to decipher my body's ever-changing energy and to live in harmony with (rather than struggling against) its ebb and my flow.

All along we'll be honouring May's seasonal energy of hope and new vision and supporting our Livers in their role of springtime detox and easing stress and tension.

There will of course also be plenty of time to simply relax!

You might choose to:

  • rest in luxury country-house comfort
  • take in Spring's green explosion in the fabulous Norfolk Broads countryside
  • visit the nearby Norfolk coast
  • chat with other lovely women
  • pamper yourself with a 1-2-1 massage treatment.

And you'll certainly get to enjoy outstanding vegetarian food.

More than anything, this will be a chance for you to undo, not to do.

For self-care is not selfish. Rather it is your gateway to vitality, creativity and taking your most powerful and authentic self out into the world.

When?
This weekend Women's Yoga Retreats runs from Friday to Sunday.

You can arrive at the retreat any time from 9am on the Friday. If you are able to come in the morning, I do so recommend you take advantage of this opportunity for quiet time to settle in, relax and explore.

The retreat will start at 3.30pm, with a welcoming cup of tea, followed by the first Yoga practice session and then dinner. We'll finish by 3pm on Sunday afternoon, but you are welcome to stay till later to chat and relax. (See below for full provisional schedule).

[For anyone wondering why this is not a three-night retreat this year, it is because I normally offer three nights over the bank holiday, but the government has shifted the May Bank Holiday to the following weekend in 2020 because of VE Day celebrations. I did not know this when I booked this weekend, so ended with a normal weekend!]

Who?
The retreat is open to all women of all ages who are interested in embracing their authentic feminine power.

You don't need any experience of Yoga etc and you certainly don't need to stay away because you think you are not fit or cheery (etc) enough. Our practice will be deeply self-reverent and fluidly accessible to all. 

And, even more importantly, this is your weekend - you can join in as much or as little as you wish.

If you choose to spend a practice session lying on your mat, you can. And if one day you feel that what you really want to do is to skip practice and instead relax, go for a walk, explore Norfolk, read a book, draw, chat with someone interesting you have connected with or spend some quiet time alone, that is more than fine.

Thank you, Tiffany, for a very restorative weekend. I’m going back to the real world refreshed, emotionally lighter and with a greater understanding of my body and femininity.

- Kat R.

"Thank you for your guidance and compassion and wisdom this weekend! …. After a very emotionally difficult year, this retreat was almost like a rebirth for me, physically, mentally and emotionally. Tiffany was a gentle and compassionate teacher, and lead us in a beautiful program that embraced feminine power and self-care and allowed for a lot of healing and introspection. Such a restorative weekend in beautiful surroundings with other lovely, interesting women - I couldn’t recommend it more!”

— Emily M.

"I particularly enjoyed the meditation, the massage and the Yoga practice, plus the space in the day to be alone. … Absolutely exceptional food. Nurturing teaching and healing 1-2-1 treatments. Beautiful setting and stunning house. The only thing that would have made it even better was if it could have been another day longer!"

— Maria F.

"This Yoga is underpinned by wisdom and compassion and the sheer joy of being a woman. It is inspiring. … The greatest benefit for me was to enjoy moving and stretching again without fear after slipping a disc - and to reconnect with myself, to value myself as a woman. ... It's amazing to watch 16 women transform, open up and blossom in just 2 or 3 days,”

— Jo D.

"Tiffany has a rare gift of combining extensive research - theoretical and practical - with empathetic and transformative teaching. Her Yoga sessions include Qigong, reverence for seasonal change and celebration of female energy. Powerful stuff! …. It is fascinating how practice, good food, Ashley’s shiatsu massage and discussion combined to shift one’s state of mine to peace and renewal. .. And the venue was great - large spaces, great bathrooms, and intimately connected to the seasons by being on a farm and close to the sea.”

— Nicole H.

"Thank you for your wisdom and insights. … I loved approaching Yoga from an elemental aspect - this was a whole new wealth of information. … The venue was excellent - warm, with lovely bedrooms, great food and plenty of it. Wonderful company of women."

- Sarah O.

- Lorien H.

- Deirdre P.

Where?
Our Yoga retreat venue is fabulous. Fishley Hall is a 17th-century manor house set in lovely countryside near the village of Fishley, just 10 miles from the Norfolk coast. The house, which was recently refurbished with enormous love and care by the owners, sleeps up to 16. We'll be practising in its beautiful, spacious conservatory, which has underfloor heating.

"The house is charming, beautiful and has a real sense of peace about it. The surroundings make it so special!" Lauren G.

Fabulous food
Our delicious food will, like our Yoga, celebrate Spring's energy of vitality. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be vegetarian (tending to vegan) and we can cater for other reasonable dietary requirements (eg gluten-free). There will also be nourishing snacks and lots of herbal teas available.

"Absolutely exceptional food!" Maria F.
