Guided by the gifted teacher and experienced retreat leader Mischa, you will celebrate the past and present and craft heartfelt intentions as you look ahead to the New Year.
The accommodation options are on private, double or twin, and triple room basis. Poundon House is an Edwardian house built in 1908 and set within 12 acres of grounds. It is only offered on exclusive use basis to established well-being companies. With 10 bedrooms, it is an ideal venue for retreats with up to 18 guests.
The inside of the house is just as impressive as the outside with large paintings, ornate fireplaces, and plenty of space for you. You have exclusive use of three reception rooms, each one with its own unique character. The bedrooms offer the chance to really enjoy the venue and settle in for the weekend. They are spacious, light, and extremely comfortable.
The bed linens have been carefully sourced and is of the highest quality. There are shared bathrooms as the house has kept true to its original design. There are hypnos mattresses, homegrown lavender by the bed, linen sheets, feather duvets, and pillows. Please note that feather-based allergies can be catered for with advance warning.
Poundon House also has various spacious rooms like the drawing room, which is cozy with the open fire in the winter months. The library is a quiet room to curl up and read. The yellow room is a beautiful room for your meals with its far reaching views. The dining room is transformed into a yoga shala for the weekend.
The yoga space becomes an integral part of the weekend where you can keep silence and retreat to for private meditations whenever you need to. Poundon House provides yoga mats, blocks, and blankets. The views to the countryside are beautiful and tranquil and make the perfect backdrop.
You will experience morning and afternoon yoga practices, nourish your souls and bellies with a delectable New Year's eve banquet, let loose with a detox dance party, welcome in the New Year with glorious ceremony and life-affirming rituals, go deeper with meditation, pranayama, refresh with long country-walks, and make connections with like-minded, lovely souls.
As well as a lot of time in the shala with Mischa, there will be open fires to bask before, long walks to be taken, hot baths to relax in, massages and treatments to release tension, and a creative workshop time to spark your imagination into life. There is no better way to wake up to the New Year than full of life, love, energy, yoga, and a refreshing walk in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside!
Mischa's yoga journey began over a decade ago and slowly began to weave its way through her life. She is continually humbled and inspired by the potential of yoga to transform, expand, and heal and is devoted to sharing the practice with others. She holds enormous gratitude to leading Vinyasa flow teacher Claire Missingham with whom she completed her initial 200 hours and went on to assist for some time afterwards.
The retreat will be held in Poundon, Oxfordshire, England. Poundon House is set in a convenient location, which makes it the perfect setting for a healthy weekend in peace, tranquility, mindfulness, and the chance to celebrate with your closest friends in splendid isolation.
