If you’re looking for a wholesome, rewarding retreat with a little luxury to boot, then Lucia Cockcroft and Vikki Stevenson’s long weekend in the rolling Norfolk countryside is the one for you. Set in a beautiful manor house where most bedrooms are private and there’s no expectation of you to help with the washing up, it’s a real chance to unwind and place focus on the reasons why you’re there. The weekend schedule is primarily based upon exploring different mindfulness practices and sessions draw from the contemplative aspects of yoga practice as opposed to the physical, so it’s perfect for beginners as well as those looking to refresh their practice. The December retreat will be lead by Lucia, who has a special interest in how mindfulness can help to reduce stress, and techniques will span everything from yoga Nidra to mindful winter walks. Shut down your laptop, turn off your phone and succumb to the possibilities that a little rest bite can do for your mental wellbeing.
