Nettlecombe Farm Isle Of Wight

November 9th – 11th 2018

 

Soul Food Retreat

If you are looking to deepen your practice as a returning guest or a first time retreater in the company of lovely people, enjoying yummy vegetarian food in a beautiful rural setting, then this is the weekend for you!

Nettlecombe Farm is a popular tourist destination offering holiday cottages in the heart of the Isle of Wight. Out of season it allows us the space to gather on retreat and enjoy time out from busy work schedules and day to day life.
The quiet village of Whitwell sits in the midst of the countryside and you follow a lane from the village, up to the farm, nestled amongst rolling green pastures and fishing lakes.

The function barn also doubles as a fully equipped Yoga studio with underfloor heating, a welcome feature for the early morning practice!
A menagerie of unusual animals and wildfowl, including reindeer and alpacas add to the delightful sounds of the dawn chorus.

The Retreat

The programme will offer over twelve hours of tuition throughout the weekend, offering participants a wonderful opportunity to explore the various aspects of the practice.
The retreat will commence with the first session on Friday evening at 5.30 pm and end on Sunday lunchtime. Although people are welcome to arrive anytime after 2 pm on Friday to settle into their cottages, sleep, indulge in a massage or enjoy a walk .

A full programme of the retreat will be sent out nearer the time, but rest assured that your body will receive a cocktail of stretching and strengthening. Your mind will become quiet and peaceful and your soul will be uplifted and joyful.

Guided Meditation, Pranayama and Kriyas, Asana, Dance and Laughter will all be offered on this retreat.
 

Accommodation

All cottages are shared, although there is the opportunity of having your own room within the cottage or sharing in a twin room or a dorm style room with bunk beds.
All of the cottages have kitchens and lounge areas with bathrooms (some en suite).
Seated areas outside on small patios to enjoy the sounds of nature or for star gazing! There is no light pollution here, so on a clear night the night time sky is quite spectacular.

Food

The cost of the retreat includes supper on both nights, delicious breakfast on both mornings and two lunches. All food is vegetarian, delicious and nutritious and is lovingly prepared and served by my Mum and her partner, adding to the family feel of the retreats I offer here.
Organic and locally sourced ingredients are always used where possible and the delights conjured up by my Mum have become a source of great anticipation and inspiration.
Special dietary requirements can be catered for as long as these are requested in advance.

Massage

My son Joshua is a fully qualified Massage therapist and will be offering treatments throughout the retreat. These can be booked in advance and paid for at the retreat or at the time of booking.
He is building a wonderful reputation and it is highly recommended to book in advance, as the time between the practice sessions are limited.

“Beautiful intuitive massage! I’ve been looking for an island based masseuse for years now (not kidding!) and today feel so relieved to have found just the person! I want to block book my own appointments before Josh gets crazy booked up!
He knew exactly the areas to target and managed to ease out some pretty epic knots without any pain at all. First time I’ve experienced that. I could feel the tension melting away as he worked.
Super professional, great personality and magic hands!”
