Discover what previous participants thought of the last yoga retreat with Emma and Gemma below!

“I’ve not done yoga for a while and I’ve missed it so the retreat felt like a good way to get back into things. I think price would have been the only reason I might not have booked, but actually, it was very reasonable for how much was covered.”

“On the day I remembered how much I love yoga and how good I feel afterwards! Also, as well as being delicious, the lunch was really interesting. I’m keen to learn more about better ways I can eat and how as a family we can nourish ourselves better.”

“The thing I liked most about the day was the sound bath. It was super tingly!”

“The benefits of doing a retreat with Emma and Gemma is lots of time for relaxation which feels quite indulgent, a chance to focus on yourself and a reminder for how important self care is.”

“I would definitely recommend this retreat day. I think it was a great reset button for me and, as above, a reminder to take the time to look after myself. I had a lovely day and felt so relaxed afterwards! Thank you!”

What to bring

A yoga mat, foam blocks if you like to use them or cushions so that you can sit on the floor comfortably (chairs are also available), and enough blankets and pillows to make you snug and warm during yoga nidra. If you’re not sure what to bring for yoga nidra then we recommend you start with three pillows and a blanket in addition to your mat.

You can hire a package of mat, block, cushion, pillow, sheepskin and blanket for £10 if you book in advance.
Extra thick mats are also available to buy at £20 each.
