Hiking and Yoga Day Retreat  £28

Enjoy a 4-hour long day retreat that leaves you with a more open and spacious feeling in body and mind! Discover Beacon Hill Local Nature Reserve in Brighton's outskirts with its wide-open spaces, sheep, hills, and panoramic views.

Timeline

We will meet at 10:00 am at the windmill and start the day with Qi-Gong inspired movements followed by a walk through nature and 90 minutes of yoga.

Yoga with a view

The yoga class is slow but strong and suitable for everybody. We hold each position to get into the fascia for a deep tissue release.  (Would you like to try the class first? Come along to my outdoor yoga class at Hove Lawns!)

Weather

Surprisingly, the weather is mostly all right, but the retreat will be cancelled if it's very windy and rainy. You will get a full refund!

What to expect?


Duration: 4 hours

Meeting Point: 10:00 am at The Wind Mill bus station, next to the car park.


We will start the day with some Qi-Gong inspired movements to clear the mind and then walk through the Beacon Hill Nature Reserve, enjoying nature with its wide-open grasslands and the spectacular panoramic views.

We will do a 90-minute yoga class, that will leave you with a more open and spacious feeling in body and mind followed by another walk back to the windmill.




What if it rains?


A little bit of rain should be ok, but if it rains heavily or if it is very windy, we would cancel the event. You will get a full refund if the retreat is cancelled!




What about toilets?


There are no toilets in the South Downs, but many bushes and not many people!




What fitness level is it?


It is a moderate walk, including a few little hills. The yoga class is sufficient for all levels. You need to be fit enough to walk for about 1 hour, and you must be able to walk up a moderate slope!
