Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th July, Herefordshire
Friday 9th – Sunday 11th October, Herefordshire
Residential retreat weekends. Yoga, meditation, nourishing food and time to relax, refresh your senses and rest into nature.
“To have time implies that quality of elegance and ease which gives poise to our movements and wisdom to our action…
Why not open the doors and let the air, wind and sun penetrate into our hearts?” Vanda Scaravelli
The weekend will offer early morning silent sitting before breakfast, long morning yoga sessions followed by lunch and early evening guided meditations before our evening meals. Afternoons are clear, to spend as you wish…resting, countryside walking, snuggling up in your cabin with a good book, relaxing in the garden. We will invite and support you to spend time in silence from the later evening through until the morning yoga session begins.
Morning yoga led by Caroline. Silent sitting and guided meditations held by Sandy Lacey. Sandy has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 20 years. She was ordained within the Tirana Buddhist Order in 2008 and qualified as a Scaravelli inspired yoga teacher in 2011.
Her practice draws on both Buddhism and writings on soul making, especially those of James Hillman – teachings that she finds deeply nourishing and enriching.
Maitreya House Retreat Centre is set within a peaceful, spacious garden, in unspoilt rural Herefordshire, looking out to wonderful views of Golden Valley and Hay Bluff.

“Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful weekend. It was pretty near perfect! From my single cabin in the woods: cosy, warm and fairytale like, to the quintessential yoga workshop sessions which encouraged self discovery and self acceptance and provided a wonderful open forum for students to feel included and to ask questions; seek help, bond, explore and discover so much. I do feel really lucky to have had this experience, the space you created to not only explore but also discuss yoga is unique. I really appreciate your open approach and how receptive and genuinely honest and friendly your teaching and more specifically you, as a teacher, are. I loved the whole special weekend you created.” Emma (Felinganol retreat April 2017)
