The Equinox Retreat

About The Retreat

This retreat has nature at its heart. We’ll be surrounded by beautiful countryside making it the perfect location for a reset. This retreat falls just before the Spring Equinox in 2023 which is a time of balance between light and dark and celebrating new beginnings. Spring Equinox is the perfect time for grounding yourself in nature and tuning into your intuition and compassion. Think; a restful night’s sleep in a wooden koyt, afternoons relaxing with a book, chatting with the other yogis, delicious food, grounding our feet into the earth, cold water plunges, woodland sauna sessions, waking to herbal tea and fresh smoothies, Yoga in the morning and evening, meditation, self-enquiry, music, breathwork and beautiful people to share it with. The intention with this retreat is to welcome people into a compassionate, healing and regenerative space. Take this time out of the rush of the world to do something for yourself. Not just self care, but a collective space of caring for one another. Connect with yourself, the natural world and each other. We will prioritise that connection with nature and getting a little bit more wild. Lets heal and liberate ourselves from work, stress or any other hardships we’re going through. Come home to yourself and come home to the earth. Venue & Location Our venue is a beautiful village of wooden koyts. Fully immersed in nature with all the home comforts. This long weekend, life is just that little bit simpler. We will move, breath, meditate, eat delicious food and spend time doing things that just make us feel really good in a stunning location, rain or shine. The house is where we’ll be practicing yoga, breathwork, meditation, journaling & eating all together. Communal dining, delicious plant-based, seasonal and nutritionally dense whole foods, smoothies and juices prepared by our wonderful private chef. Allergens can be catered for, please let us know when booking. Please note: All levels are welcome on the retreat, you do not need to be an experienced yogi however you will get the most out of the retreat if you have practiced some yoga before.

A wonderful chance to re-set, breathe and relax in a healthy and supportive environment. Thank you Rosie and Poppy. My first yoga retreat, but definitely not my last. Great venue, classes, food and friends.

A wonderful, cocoon of well-being was created by Rosie and her team. The yoga, the food, the environment, all were designed to facilitate our feeling amazing and it worked. I made some new friends too which was unexpected. I’m already signed up for more Funky Cactus retreats and weekly online yoga practises. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
