The dawn of a new year represents a shift in time, space, and energy.  2024 is your year. It belongs to you. It is a call from the universe to invite your intention to rise from your heart. It is an opportunity for you to let go of everything that might be holding you back so that you may soar far, high, and wide. It is prime time to rewrite, or refine, your story. This retreat is about seizing your blank canvas so that you may paint or draw whatever vision you seek and witness it manifest. So, clear your palette, plant your seeds, and watch your growth flow effortlessly from within.

Join me in welcoming 2024 with an open heart and our collective spirit.


This is a 4-day winter yoga and mindfulness retreat exploring how a loving kindness practice and the natural energetics of the body can support physical, emotional, and mental balance. You will learn how to appreciate the hidden value of transition and experience a wider perspective of balance and movement Wrapped in the peace and tranquillity of the idyllic British countryside, this holistic retreat will offer a timely opportunity to relax and recharge. Immerse yourself in the yogic practice, ayurvedic food, menopause workshop and feng shui philosophy.  Recover, Rescue and Reclaim – If you are already struggling through your menopause, have just started your journey, or are experiencing physical and emotional changes you suspect might be the start of what is to come, then allow Emma Thomas to help you with this transition.  Mary Nondé is our queen of feng shui. Having trained under the mentorship of Denise Linn in the western approach to feng shui 24 years ago, she has been working as a consultant for home and office spaces ever since. You will enjoy delicious and refreshing Ayurvedic food prepared by our Ayurvedic chef, Wendy Dineen throughout your stay to enrich your roots and set your intention so that you may rise.


Join me for uplifting morning yoga sessions, tastefully balanced with afternoon recreational activities intended to inspire your reserves and invite tender curiosity as to what serves you best. Through therapeutic flow, mindful meditation, breathing awareness, and tension-releasing techniques, you will discover how to deploy your experience on the mat in the wider and all-encompassing context of your life. Enriching your presence in the practice, and not falling into habitual patterns, will guide you to a newly energised you. Expect the unexpected!

A spectacular conversion nestled in the picturesque Cotswold countryside, located only a mile from the village of Naunton. This large, Cotswold stone barn house sits in lovely grounds, with far reaching views of the beauty of the Cotswolds. There is a wealth of character features in The Waterhead Barn.  This is a stunning and spacious creative space that will allow you to unleash the potential, the divine essence, within you.

Once you arrive at our sanctuary, you will immediately sink into home. Whether it is settling down in front of a roaring open fire, or going for a restorative walk in the countryside, this is the perfect place to escape the post-Christmas blues.

The beginning of any year represents a change of time and space. It presents the opportunity to rewrite your story or to just make it a better one. I find this a powerful time with new energies that together we can channel towards something magnificent.

Join me – let’s start that chapter together!
