I am returning to beautiful Tilton House near Lewes in East Sussex for a yoga weekend next year (2018), from Friday 14th- Sunday 16th September.

The yoga weekend will encompass asana (both slow flow and restorative), pranayama, mantra, mudra and yoga philosophy.

Tilton House is located in a stunning, unspoilt setting on the South Downs, just in front of Firle Beacon, one of the highest points on the Downs which rolls back to the track from the door. It’s no coincidence that the Bloomsbury Set, Virginia Woolf, Maynard Keynes, T.S.Elliot and other visionaries took their inspiration from wandering the wild ancient landscape to escape, muse and reflect. During this retreat you will have time to totally unwind around our yoga sessions; you could enjoy the countryside by relaxing in a hammock in the pretty gardens or walking the Downs, visiting nearby Charleston, enjoying a holistic massage or treatment on site or unwinding in the cedar wood sauna.

All accommodation (double, twin or triple rooms), yoga classes and meals (freshly prepared and vegetarian) are included in the price of £375pp.

There is a £150 (non refundable) deposit to pay that will secure your place with the balance in full settled by 31st July 2018. Please email me [Email address: ruth #AT# ruthy.plus.com - replace #AT# with @ ] to book.
