Age group and levels of courses
We offer over 40 residential activity & yoga holidays each year all year round.

The main aim of our courses is to introduce yoga and meditation to complete beginners, and to deepen the experience of people who are already practicing yoga.  

A very important part of all our courses are the outdoor activities and time spent in Nature.

Details at

Some courses are very gentle and suitable for complete beginners of all ages and all levels of fitness, and some other courses are quite strong and dynamic and more suitable for regular yoga practitioners and those who are more fit.

The age group ranges from 14 to 70 years old, and it is important to choose the level of course that is right for you.

About 90% of all are visitors come on their own. The atmosphere is friendly, warm and relaxed and it is very easy to get to know the others during our outdoor activities and also over meals and just spending time together.

Summer is best for outdoor activities
We spend much more time outdoors doing a myriad of activities during our week long courses. We offer week long courses at Christmas, New Year, Easter, and back to back from 1st June to about 8th September.

It’s possible top book for a ‘weekend only’ on any of our week long courses, or stay until Monday, Tuesday or end of course on Thursday.
