About the retreat
We are very excited to return to boutique retreat venue, 42 Acres, for a New Year Yoga Retreat. So we are back once again to celebrate another New Year in idyllic surroundings with great teachers offering: yoga, meditation, pranayama, music, singing and massage.
Also on offer are beautiful countryside walks, delicious wholesome organic food, fireside chats, party games, new friends and the space to just be...
Book early to make sure you can join us in our New Year celebration of love, life and friendship. Come on your own or with your friends, either way you're guaranteed to have a great time and begin 2018 with a clear mind, an open heart and a rejuvenated spirit…what better way to start the year!
42 Acres is beautiful retreat space, encircled by seven hundred acres of ancient forest. Sustainability and comfort are at the forefront of the 42 Acres vision with reclaimed materials used to fit-out the interiors of the property. All of the power is renewable and self-generated through biomass and solar.
The New Year programme
This retreat will be an opportunity for you to have some quiet time, space and reflection, alongside a morning and evening programme of yoga, pranayama, meditation and much fun and celebration.
We will open the day with meditation and pranayama, followed by a 2 hour asana class between 8 and 10am. A delicious breakfast will then be served with free time and lunch to follow.
We will then meet again in the afternoon for a more restorative and gentle yoga practice. The day will close with singing and evening meditation. There will be a celebratory dinner on New Year's eve with fun and celebrations.
Participants are welcome to offer talks or workshops over the 4 days which we will try to fit into our schedule. Spontaneity is very likely!
This retreat is suitable for all levels of yoga.
Accommodation & food
Accommodation options range from dormitories to twins and single rooms (en-suite options are available) with luxury linen and towels provided. The centre has several communal spaces including a library and a meeting and reading space.
Delicious organic food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals are vegetarian.
42 Acres is a truly magical retreat: a sacred space of calm and peacefulness set in the restorative nature of Somerset...
42 Acres is a magical haven. The unintrusively cool interior design is in a league of its own and absolutely bang up to date, and yet, this beautiful home still retains its connection to the past. The setting is 42 acres of glorious nature, gorgeous English farmland, bounded by ancient meadows and forests. I experienced one of the most magical weekends at 42 acres and this place will forever be in my heart. I can't recommend it enough.
The house is beautifully appointed and has very comfortable luxurious rooms, the perfect place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and find some well needed peace. I will definitely be going back soon.
I am still feeling the positive effects from my break. The location was beautiful, the food fantastic, the people lovely and Dory, by far, is the best teacher I have had in 18 years...
I really enjoyed it all and found the space and quiet I needed ! Doing so much yoga was great! You are both so gifted at facilitating...so nurturing and calm. A joy!
‘I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful retreat at 42 Acres, I had such a lovely, peaceful time. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the food, the location, the classes, the massages and the people. I left feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and really inspired to explore yoga more.’Alice
