Bespoke Personal Retreats

“Unable to sleep properly, eat properly, or even to think properly, I arrived at Jane’s retreat, feeling completely overwrought, on the verge of crashing”.

If you relate to Hilary’s words above, and can maybe add some of your own, read about her retreat experience below, then contact to discuss your individual needs for a bespoke personal retreat in idyllic rural North Norfolk. Physical practice is optional, as Jan’s testimonial below confirms.

“I was offered a custom-designed programme, one-to-one, over four incredible days, with as much, or as little, space as I needed, but with loving guidance through some structured workshop activity with plenty of reflection, through chanting and meditation, and through regular satsang, all in the tradition of Yasodhara Yoga.

Mourning, Candle, Obituary, Die, Death

In peaceful surroundings in beautiful North Norfolk, Jane helped me put myself back together, giving me vision and hope for the future, and the tools and practice – spiritual, mental, emotional – to take away with me to help meet the inevitable challenges along the way.

It is a gift to be given space, yet held; to be heard, sometimes without even speaking; to be encouraged, yet not indulged; to be offered peace, yet stimulation. All these things have been given freely, with loving kindness, and in absolute safety.

Oh – and the food? Sublime! Home cooked, organic, delicious and abundant!

Jane will nurture your entire being with love and compassion (and a fabulous menu!), from wherever you are to wherever you want to be”.

In love and gratitude

I booked a three day one-to-one retreat with Jane on the recommendation of a friend. i had been diagnosed with acute fatigue and felt I had lost my direction.

Jane’s home and studio are set in a beautiful part of Norfolk. One feels safe, sustained and cared for. My room was comfortable and I was able to have time to myself as and when I needed it.

Jane is a keen cook and I was able to regain my lost appetite through the fascinating vegetarian dishes she lovingly prepared.

Jane designed a workshop which I experienced over the three days. It was a gentle, focused process which was brilliantly paced. I was encouraged, through simple but meaningful yoga practices to find my way, with the help of Jane’s soft questioning, towards surprising realisations.

I am not a yoga practitioner myself but I want to emphasise that this retreat does not require one to be so. It is passionately delivered with all the skill learned through many years of study but it has no hard edges – it washes over you like rain and leaves you feeling profoundly centred.

Thank you Jane for taking care of me, sharing your knowledge and sending me home with sweet smelling blossoms in every sense.
