Neighbourhood Retreat - July 2022

Join us 18th-22nd February for a signature Neighbourhood Retreat at the beautiful Linhay in Exmoor. Lead by our founders Kate O'Neill & Jeni England. As with everything we do at Neighbourhood, this retreat will be community focused. It will be a chance for you to disconnect from daily life, work and screens so that you can connect on a deeper level with yourself and those around you. You will be able to spend a few days focussing on moving your body, resting your mind, and resetting. Everybody is welcome, the weekend will be an open and safe space for all.

Both Kate & Jeni will be leading daily yoga classes in a variety of styles including Vinyasa, Rocket and Yin. There will be optional daily meditations, workshops, walks and other activities, and you can choose to do as much or as little as possible. 3 delicious, nutritious plant based meals will be provided daily. All meals, teas, coffees and snacks are included. 

A retreat is the perfect opportunity to focus on your yoga practice away from the distractions and stresses of every day life. With 2 practices a day, plus the option to participate in workshops, whether you're a beginner or more experienced you will come away having learned something new and feeling stronger and more confident.

The Venue

We are taking you to the stunning Linhay in the North Devon countryside, right on the edge of Exmoor National park. Set on a working farm, this beautifully restored barn house is the perfect location to immerse yourself in nature and step out of your daily life. We will be close to the coast so there will be the opportunity for coastal or beach walks as well as walks in the surrounding hills and valleys. All linens will be provided, and with underfloor heating throughout it will be a cozy place to spend crisp February days if you don't feel like venturing out.

Retreat FAQs

2 classes a day sounds intense, what if I can't/don't want to do it all?

All classes are optional! We recommend you attend them all to get the most out of the retreat, but first and foremost this retreat is about you relaxing and feeling good so if you don't fancy it one day that is absolutely fine.

The morning classes will be 90mins and more dynamic, whereas the evening classes will be much more restorative and designed to release and counteract the work of the morning sessions. 

I'm a beginner/new to yoga, will I find it too hard?

All of the sessions on our retreat are open level and accessible to practitioners of all levels of experience! The immersive nature of a retreat makes it the perfect place to start your journey into yoga. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and break down poses or different aspects of the practice. We aim to be fully inclusive, absolutely everyone is welcome!

What style of yoga will we be practicing?

Kate & Jeni will be offering a variety of styles on throughout the week, including Vinyasa, Rocket, Restorative & Yin. It could be the perfect opportunity to try something new!

How many people will be on the retreat?
Our maximum capacity on this retreat is 11 guests.

Is equipment provided?

No, you will need to bring your own mat. If you do not have your own please let us know in advance and we will be able to bring one for you. Please also let us know if you require any blocks or straps as we will be bringing some with us on request. 

I want to come but am nervous of sharing a room with someone I don't know...

In our experience, sharing a room on retreats can lead to life long friendships and is a wonderful way to meet like minded people you may normally have never crossed paths with! The fact that you are all booked onto a yoga retreat automatically gives you something in common with the other guests, and in such a family like environment you will be surprised at how quickly you bond with your fellow yogis.

Will there be any extra costs involved?

Travel to the venue is not included in the price, however we will set up a whatsapp group prior to the retreat so you may be able to organise travelling with others to cut costs.

The only other extra cost that you may find is if we take a trip to the beach and need to share taxis. Although if enough people have driven we may be able to car share.

If you have any other questions prior to booking feel free to email us info@neighbourhoodyoga.co.uk
