Program

Nova Milesko gives you the opportunity to really engage with your surroundings and fellow yogis for a weekend of deep restoration. You will take this retreat to focus on what is most important to you, to your health, to your hearts, and to your peace of mind. On these retreats, the mornings include early mediation followed by practice sessions that start with gentle stretching and pranayama or breathing exercises, building gradually into a flowing practice, suitable for all levels of ability. In the afternoon, there are optional walks, massages, and workshops. The gentler evening sessions of Yin will focus on relaxation and release, promoting harmony, healthy immune functioning, and improving overall vitality.

The timetable is designed for you to have lots of time to relax and reconnect, so of course everything is optional. Do what you need and want to do, and enjoy it. There will be a more detailed class schedule with the option of joining the New Teachers classes throughout the weekend.

Location

This retreat will take place in Bransgore, UK. You will be staying in a manor house, with the New Forest on the doorstep and the beautiful village of Burley with many pubs and shops round the corner - you are really spoilt for choice as to places to go.

The House was built as a calendar house with 365 windows (days), 7 outer doors (days per week), 52 rooms (weeks), 12 chimneys (months) and 4 wings (seasons). It was designed and built by the Arts and Crafts architect W.R. Lethaby and was completed in 1891.
