Program

Your luxury yoga weekend includes four meditation sessions and four yoga practices. Morning yoga with Jeff is more dynamic, creative, playful and explorative. It includes ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice, meditation and pranayama. Jeff works to emphasize the breath, guides students to greater mindfulness. No matter your level of skill and experience, he will ensure that you are comfortable, inspired and energised. Afternoon yoga experiences are more gentle and restorative and will include a focus on chakra work, yin yoga, pranayama, yoga nidra and deep meditation. Leisure time may be spent wandering the magnificently-landscaped grounds of Tofte Manor, including a maze, as well as the surrounding countryside, or enjoying a brisk dip in the swimming pool, should you be up to weathering the cold. Don't forget to book a pampering massage to help you truly relax and unwind in style.
