Welcome cuppa & raw vegan treat & time to calm in the beautiful gardens, with stunning local birds & fish ponds. Ease gently into the ambient music filled & aromatic treatment room, our Qi Spa for a massage. Stroll onto the garden deck with views up the picturesque tree filled valley, where a yoga mat awaits, here you can experience a natural form of yoga tailored around your unique physical & emotional capacity. This form of yoga comes from the ancient Chinese art of Dao-Yin (the main goal is to create balance between internal & external energies to revitalise the body, mind and spirit, through developing strength & flexibility in muscles and tendons). Now for meditation utilising breath, similar to the Vipassana model, ours is an organic approach to this type of awareness using breath to come into the present to bring awareness to monkey mind jumping incessantly from one thought to the next. Time for a posture session, woven with instruction on a few core Qigong practices to support flow and balance. Learn how the art of resilient optimism and the use of gratitude cultivates vitality. An amazing and activating holistic facial with energy acupressure. Time for a scrumptious gourmet vegan lunch. The food, house and gardens are all organic, low-footprint and free of nasty chemicals, a safe and nourishing place to remember how to rest in natural great peace.
