Glastonbury Women’s Yoga & Sound Healing Retreat
25-27th October 2019
A magical healing weekend of ceremony, sound healing, yoga & reiki in the beautiful Glastonbury countryside
Arrive 3pm on Fri 25th Oct and depart 1pm on 27th Oct
Join us for this nourishing women's healing retreat as we gather to release, restore and enable a deeper connection to ourselves in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Set in a beautiful retreat space with views of Glastonbury Tor (the heart chakra of the world!) we will welcome an intimate group of just 10 women to take some much needed space to rest, restore and plant seeds for new growth as we move towards the new moon in Scorpio.
Over the weekend you will have the opportunity to receive Sound Healing and hands on Reiki, to take part in Yoga and gentle Plant Medicine ceremony or simply take the space to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. As women we spend so much time giving out to others, this weekend is a chance to open up to receiving.
We will be working with the feminine energies of Rose, Cacao and the Scorpio new moon to support this journey, in allowing you to gently soften and let go of anything that no longer serves moving forward. With yoga sequences designed around the water element and the lower chakras to nourish and take you deep into your body and therapeutic sound and plant medicine to assist healing and on a cellular level, supported by lovingly prepared nutritious and nourishing meals by our in-house chef Olga, this weekend will allow you the space and stillness to rest, restore and come back home to yourself.
This retreat is small and intimate to allow each person individual attention and hands on healing. We will create a sacred container for our time together and hold space for you to be, as you are.
Our venue for the weekend is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with magnificent 360° panoramic views of the Somerset countryside and Glastonbury Tor. The location is peaceful, secluded and just three miles from Glastonbury town. There is a 6 person hot tub on site where you can relax and unwind taking in the view of the Tor and beautiful countryside.

For Danielle, Yoga and Reiki are a way of practicing love and compassion for ourselves and for each other.
