3 Day Retreat at
The Lygon Arms in the Cotswolds
Sunday 28th to Tuesday 30th April 2024
The Lygon Arms is the most charming hotel, situated in the Cotswolds (sister hotel to the Chewton Glen). Steeped in over 600 years history this beautiful place has been host to royalty. Retreat in luxury!
This immersive retreat combines a Wim Hof experience, yoga and walking. Discover a connection with the elements, harnessing their power to reduce stress and encourage a calmer, more balanced outlook. Ayurveda, derived from the Sanskrit word Ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge), teaches us that the natural world is made up of 5 elements - earth, water, fire, air & space. Through pranayama (breath work), meditation, yoga, the deep relaxation of yoga nidra, crystal singing bowl sound healing and embracing nature, feel inspired by the elements to reconnect with a more restful, serene you. Put yourself in the hands of Wim Hoff instructor, Jamie Christopherson, to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof method: Breathing Techniques, Cold Exposure & Commitment. Find out how you can utilise oxygen and cold exposure to optimise body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology in a practical guided day.

ABOUT MELISSA YOGA
I’ve been practicing yoga for over 20 years. Travelling to far away places as cabin crew has given me the opportunity to practice with many wonderful teachers in the most amazing places. Initially setting out with a physical practice I soon realised yoga is so much more. I took a teacher training in 2012 with the late & most incredible yogi Conrad Paul (I clearly remember his last words to me being ‘Go shine the light’ so here I am!) & then pre & post natal training with Yoga London in 2016, Yoga Nidra & Crystal Singing bowl Sound Healing.
I believe yoga is for EVERYONE & love to share the life changing practice with all. I offer classes, workshops, retreats, one to one & corporate yoga. If you are completely new or a seasoned yogi there is a class for you. There are always variations to challenge & modifications within poses & alternatives to simplify. Classes are aimed for all levels. I am here to support you on your yogic path. There is no need to be flexible! Join our wonderful nurturing yoga community. Practicing together creates the most wonderful energy. Come along!! 🙏
