The Retreat

The deeper the connection we have with ourselves and our environment, the more relaxed, supported and easy our lives become.
This retreat is designed to support you to allow yourself more space for insight and connection in your daily life.  


  • being soothed with sleep-inducing yoga in the evening, waking up feeling refreshed in the morning and, without the usual distractions of home, you slip on your comfy clothes and saunter downstairs to be guided in gentle, opening and energising movement and breath work, options shown that suit you depending on your body and how it’s feeling.


  • feeling awake, fresh, tingly and hungry and being served breakfast choices that are tasty AND you know are going to support you to stay energised and well.

Then imagine

  • having time to rest, shower and be you before being guided in peaceful observations in nature that get you noticing details and patterns that give you answers to concerns, situations or decisions taking place in your life.

AND then imagine

  • more of the same for lunch, dinner and into the next day.

From Friday 3pm to Sunday 12 noon, we will nourish ourselves with morning, midday and evening Yoga asana, pranayama and meditation practices and delicious, health-supporting meals and snacks. Alongside this we will learn to observe our surroundings through the ethics and principles or Permaculture, the first step in the Permaculture design system for sustainable living.


The Burn is an idyllic estate of geological and natural beauty run by a charitable body for educational retreats.

    i love the name of this event, seeing through new eyes. another might be experiences through new awareness. one thing that the beings on the land have taught me is that throughout time humans have worked in partnership with all the beings on the land, animals, plants, microbes, etc. and it is only recently that we are so alone and isolated and feeling we need to “do everything.” i have a funny story to tell. i advocate for microbes and believe that using microbe inoculations is the key to restoring our ecosystems. one day they told me you treat us like pets. we have been working on the earth for billions of years and you have no idea who we are. what an adjustment.
