Yoga Holidays & Retreats with Debbie Avani & Clare Harford

Earth Day Yoga Retreats

A time to step back from the fast pace of life and duties - to immerse yourself in Yoga, Meditation, Sound Healing, Sacred fires, Ritual and Intention setting to align with the energy of the Summer & Winter Solstice and also the Spring & Autumn Equinox

It is said that by observing these festivals we create opportunities for participation in a continuous on going cyclical process. And that through ceremony we can connect to our innermost feelings, awareness and needs. Through ceremony we can consciously seek the direction we wish to go, bringing our physical and spiritual lives into balance - helping us to connect to our intuition, inner wisdom and personal power.

Winter Solstice Retreat - 15th to 17th December 2017


Deep within the earth and ourselves roots have been growing, bringing stability. The outer world has darkened so that the inner realms can expand. During this retreat we will begin to explore and bring our inner wisdom out of the dark unconscious, to grow with the increasing light. Now is the time to birth our visions, name our dreams and make our resolutions for the coming months.

The retreats are held from Friday evening to Sunday morning and take place at Paddington Farm which nestles at the foot of the famous Glastonbury Tor in Somerset. Paddington Farm is a charitable trust and a social enterprise, located on a 43-acre organic farm. We will arrive on Friday evening and leave on Sunday morning - the cost of the retreat includes evening meals Friday and Saturday, 2 nights Dorm style accommodation and breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning. Please bring a vegetarian plate to share for lunch on Saturday along with your Yoga mat, cushions and blankets.
