Formerly the home of Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac, the Quaives is now a beautifully restored retreat haven. Set in 9 acres of Mother Earth beauty amongst the main house are 3 cottages , a yoga studio, communal / social outbuilding , tennis court, hot tub and lovingly manicured gardens. The countryside and villages around invite you to explore and become attuned to natures elements. I warmly welcome you to join me and hope to meet you there………

“Autumn Kula Rest & Restore”
I am very excited to be offering a second yoga ”Kula” weekend this year .
Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “community,” “clan” or “tribe.” This word is sometimes used by the yoga community to denote the sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. These “Kula” weekends are open to everyone. The cost to guests cover venue hire and food plus my travel expenses and marketing / admin costs. I will offer my teaching on a donation basis. There is no minimum donation. You will have the opportunity to make a yoga donation during the retreat.
Autumn marks the transition from Summer to Winter, we begin to slow down from the activity and growth of the Spring and Summer and in tandem with nature start to reflect, store and hibernate towards the winter months. To steer ourselves in to balance we will “Rest and Restore” during this retreat. Our practice will be Hatha and Yin yoga with daily meditation and Sound healing. You will be in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside surrounded by Mother nature beauty and attuned to the elements. Come for yoga, delicious vegetarian / vegan food, fresh air, countryside walks, firepit chats, tennis, logfire chats, reading, singing, sleeping, massage and most importantly the chance to rest and restore.
