East Sussex Yoga Retreat at The Star
14 October 2024 – 18 October 2024
Take a few days for yourself. Join Charlie Polizzi and Zephyr Wildman for a wonderful week of yoga, walking and pranayama/breath work this October at The Star in Alfriston. Alfriston is a lovely village set in the foot of the East Sussex Downs. On the banks of the Cuckmere River, the sea and the magnificent Seven Sisters chalk cliffs are within walking distance.
The Star is a 15th century inn, with additions from the 1930s and 1960s, located in Alfriston, a traditional downland village with medieval roots. The Star, housed in a mixture of new and old buildings, has been totally rebuilt, with new roofs, new wooden windows, many trees planted and its 30 bedrooms and bathrooms remodelled and newly decorated.
We will be offering 2-3 hours of guided walking each day on the beautiful surrounding South Downs. Not for the faint hearted. You will need good walking boots/shoes and possibly wet weather gear as we plan to walk come rain or shine.
Every evening Charlie Polizzi will be teaching 45 minutes of pranayama/breath work. To breathe consciously is to become utterly present, calm the stress system and gain mastery over the mind. When we deliberately choose to become aware of the breath, we can use it like a tool to anchor and bring stability to body and mind.
The breath work is not suitable for pregnant women or those who have had surgery in the last two years unless you have consent from your doctor.
Buffet or cooked breakfast to order for those who want it, a vegan buffet lunch of a soup and selection of salads and a three course dinner. There will always be a vegan option and a fish/white meat option main course. No one will raise an eyebrow if you feel like having a glass of wine or cocktail in the evening however, all alcohol will be charged separately.
This is your week to relax and recharge.
From £TBC based on a Classic Juliet room single occupancy.
