About Blyth Rise Stays
Blyth Rise Stays is a peaceful haven in nature, situated at the origins of the River Blyth in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Laxfield, Blyth Rise Stays is within easy reach of many of Suffolk's historical towns and the beautiful coastline.
Stunning crafted wooden lodges and igluhuts have been set around a lake and within a landscape of abundant wild flowers, trees and grasses. The perfect tranquil setting to revitalise in nature and enjoy reconnecting with yourself and others.
The daily programme
Yoga classes will be held amongst the natural surroundings, on the outdoor wooden platform or by the side of the lake. There will also be a spacious and airy tipi for yoga and gathering for meals and socialising.
Arrival time on Monday will be from 4pm and the first class will be at 5pm, followed by a delicious dinner. On the following days Sunita will offer two classes each day. Each morning she will lead you through a more dynamic class to align body and breath and in the afternoon she will offer a practice to delve deeper into the postures and relax and restore. On Friday there will be a morning practice before breakfast and departure by 10am.
There will be three delicious, healthy, vegetarian meals each day. Between classes there will be plenty of time for walks, trips to the beach or curling up with a good book. There will also be time to enjoy the two Iglu saunas tucked away in the landscape.
Luxurious lake lodges and cosy woodland igluhuts have been created to reflect the natural beauty of their surroundings.
Six lodges sit around the edge of a lake. Each stylish lodge features two bedrooms with a king-size bed and private bathroom. Between the two bedrooms there is a shared open plan living area and kitchen giving the feel of a real home from home. Large french windows overlook the lake and a wooden terrace, the perfect spot to curl up with a good book.
The cosy and quirky woodland Igluhuts are tucked away within the landscape of wild flowers and grasses. Each open-plan, hand-crafted wooden pod features a double bed, a stylishly furnished living and kitchen area, bathroom and outdoor terrace. Perfect for an individual or couple looking to escape into the countryside.
I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful retreat, I had such a lovely, peaceful time. Everything was absolutely wonderful: the food, the location, the classes and the people. I left feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and really inspired to explore yoga more.’Alice
I had such a wonderful weekend with you. I loved the yoga schedule with so much variety and continuity at the same time.Lucy
The weekend was wonderful, very nourishing and just what I needed – I didn’t know that was what I needed when I booked it.Alex
I had such a wonderful time. The accommodation was beautiful and spacious. Practicing yoga in the yurt was very special. It was a great crowd, with a good mix of people. Everyone got along really well and we had a good laugh too. The catering was spot on and the food was delicious. Yoga on a Shoestring organised everything perfectly and communication was excellent. I will definitely be booking again.Nicole
