UK Mini-Retreat in Kent Countryside
Saturday 6th May to Monday 8th May (Bank Holiday)
You are invited...
I want to welcome you to Breathe With Ease UK Mini-Retreat in the beautiful Kent countryside, under two hours from Eastbourne.
Tucked away in West Peckham is a 13th century Clements Cottage and Oast House at Samsara Retreat. "Its charming, hobbit-style nooks and crannies and oak beams would tell a thousand stories, if only walls could speak. Eclectic interior design skills are fun, yet traditional in essence."
Samsara offer cottage and off grid accommodation, kitchen, lounge, big garden, decking looking onto fields, two hot tubs and many yoga areas.
Slip off your shoes and really connect to the ground beneath you. Surround yourself with nature, nourishing food, like-minded people and leave feeling totally recharged and clear-minded.
Need that getaway?
This 2 night, 3 day retreat is a women's only holiday. Friday May 5th is a full moon, therefore over the weekend we are provided with an opportunity to become fully open, receptive to the things around us, and to move through our own cycles and phases in life. Using the power to build a sisterhood of support.
The retreat is aimed at full time workers looking to find balance in their lifestyle, mothers to step back from their duties and re-find themselves as women, and business ladies who struggle to step away from the demands of being their own boss!
Minimum age of 18, no maximum age.
Do any of these sound like you?
The retreat is a perfect balance of structured and free time, with daily yoga classes, workshops and meal times. With time to also chill, read, soak in the views or chat with new found friends. There's enough space for us all.
The yoga classes will be vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga styles. Adaptions and progressions will be offered in each class to suit your practice. The instructor can support with alignments and adjustments to help re-align your body. Mats and blocks are provided.
A full PAR-Q will be asked to be filled out before the retreat.
Food & Drink
As part of the retreat we will be blessed with our very own in house chef! They will take full control of the kitchen so you won't need to prepare, wash, wipe or clean for the whole weekend.
A total of 7 meals throughout your stay. The food offered will be vegetarian and pescatarian. (Please let the host know about any dietary requirements when booking)
All meals are provided as part of your retreat starting with a welcome lunch on Saturday 6th.
There will also be unlimited tea, coffee, and juices.
Meet the host
Hey! My name is Nicole.
I'm a qualified yoga teacher, events planner and stand up paddle board instructor from East Sussex, UK.
Breathe With Ease was born in May 2019 when I returned to the UK from working in Greece as a full time fitness and yoga teacher. I wanted to offer an array of beautiful yoga classes, events and experiences to my community. Teaching my clients about balancing their lifestyle and living in the present moment.
As we have grown, I've evolved the business and created new paths into wellness events and UK and European retreats!
I teach vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga styles, as well as yoga for sport, injury prevention and recovery. I first discovered my love for yoga about 7 years ago while taking a trip to Indonesia and fell in love with the practice. I have a condition called Cystic Fibrosis, and found that not only the asanas, but the breathwork and connections to my body seriously helped me understand how I was feeling and keep in tune with my body, mindset and emotional needs through good and poor health.
Yoga is my saving grace, my root back to becoming grounded. How I unwind, take time for myself and truly listen to my mind, body and soul.
I am over the moon and so excited to be launching this mini-retreat! It is important to me to offer a retreat I would also want to go to. Running my own business does mean I find it hard to also find balance and accept "free time". Therefore, I know this is needed by so many other women, and sharing a space where we can reconnect, recharge and reset is so important to me.
So much hard work has gone into planning it, and I can't wait to be at Samsara with you.
"My favourite evening of the week, Wednesday night’s session with Nicole. Delightful classes in a beautiful yurt, offer of essential oils to add to the experience. Maintain full body health and awareness, the payback is immense. Nicole is a fantastic teacher, can’t recommend these classes enough.
"I have wanted to give yoga a go for some time now. I went to a class with Nicole and after my first session immediately purchased 5 more. As a beginner, Nicole made me feel completely at ease and with her support and instruction I found myself feeling so relaxed and refreshed after class. The oils and venues are fantastic. A great way to reconnect with yourself. I can't recommend highly enough."
"Nicole is an exceptional teacher! Had such a brilliant time learning how to paddle board. By the end of the session, I could stand up! That shows how amazing Nicole was at encouraging me and making me feel secure safe and confident. Would defo recommend! I had never paddle boarded before and yet I absolutely loved it and was standing up by the end!"
