About the retreat
We are very excited to return to boutique retreat venue, 42 Acres, for a New Year Yoga Retreat to honour another New Year in idyllic surroundings with great facilitators offering, yoga, meditation, pranayama, music, singing and massage.
Also on offer are beautiful countryside walks, delicious wholesome organic food, fireside chats and quiet time to contemplate, new friends to meet and space to simply be.
Book early to make sure you can join us to mindfully mark the transition from 2018 into the New Year. Come and celebrate love, life and friendship - on your own or with your friends, either way you're guaranteed to have a special time and begin 2019 with a clear mind, an open heart and a rejuvenated spirit… what better way to start the year!
Set in 42 acres of private land, this beautiful retreat space is 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 outfit the interiors of the property, plus all 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 will be space to reflect and and reset for the new year.
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 practise. The day will close with singing and evening meditation. There will be a special dinner and an opportunity to chant, meditate and share by the log fire on New Year's Eve.
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...
I found the venue to be excellent as was the food. I found Kate's teaching fantastic and she was very good at bringing a group together and holding the space. It felt a very safe environment to go deep into ones self. All in all I felt it to be an amazing experience on many levels and would not hesitate to book something with you again. I have been spreading the word already!!Natasha
Kate is a very special person and creates a group dynamic that is so supportive and nurturing from which you feel able to just 'be'. The yoga was fantastic, set at just the right pace and the spiritual element adds hugely to the journey.Zoe
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 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
Kate adds a magical dimension to all her teaching.Jennifer
