Full Moon & Forest 
Autumn Yoga Retreat





Sunday 29th October 2023   |   10:00 - 16:45

The Retreat New Forest, Christchurch

Spend a beautiful Autumn day with me at The Retreat, New Forest moving through the body & breath with Vinyasa-flow yoga as we connect with the energies of the full moon & the forest around us.


We will head out into the forest to experience forest bathing; an ancient Japanese practice known as Shinrin Yoku, as well as some breathwork & mindfulness meditation. Then, feel free to warm yourself up in the cosy wood-fired outdoor sauna (you may wish to experience a refreshing & rejuvenating outdoor cold shower in between the sauna!)


Our afternoon will involve some full moon journalling before softening into yin yoga, ending with a very calming, sleepy restorative yoga. A delicious plant-based lunch, sweet treats, tea & coffee will be provided.

There are limited spaces for this special retreat.

The Venue

Set on the edge of The New Forest National park, The Retreat New Forest is where you come to escape, replenish & restore in both mind & body.


Once the dower house for the Hinton Admiral Estate, this lovely Georgian mansion is set in an expanse of gardens and woodland, with a beautiful lake, secret walled garden & miles of idyllic forest walks. We have private use of the gorgeous yoga studio in the Center room, & communal use of the cafe or outdoor patio for lunch & breaks (weather permitting) & also the grounds.

Named home of wellbeing in the New Forest. The venue was recognised by Times Travel as best for Bespoke Retreats in their article 'Best yoga retreats in the UK'.


There is ample parking at the front & an overflow car park at the side. Public transport is limited, however their is a section on arriving by train here.
