Glastonbury Yoga Retreat UK

Set in the idyllic countryside in Glastonbury, this retreat will help you feel good in the inside with carefully prepared detox program. Leave the unhealthy lifestyle that is keeping your from being your best self and join this retreat to resurrect all the goodness that has always been inside your body!

Why you should detox

Why detox? Because when you stop eating your body has a chance to put all its available energy into cleansing, energy that is usually spent digesting and assimilating food. As soon as you start your fast your body will take the opportunity to clean out toxins that have accumulated in the cells and organs of your body.

Toxin build-up

Toxins are stored in the body, not just from food and drink, but also as a result of taking prescription and recreational drugs, alcohol, caffeine and nicotine. Also, the use of cleaning products and cosmetics, exposure to environmental pollutants and suppressed emotions can contribute to ill health. Prolonged stress can leave the body adrenally exhausted which, in turn, affects the whole hormonal balance of the body. This toxic build up is gradual, accumulative and can make us ill and deplete our energy, leaving us looking and feeling unhealthy.

Pippin

Pippin is a standard shared cottage which has three bedrooms, a shared living room, kitchen and bathroom. It is warm, comfortable and near to the communal areas and pool. The downstairs room has a small ensuite but shares the main bathroom for the colemas.

Springfield

Springfield is the mirror image of Pippin and has roughly the same accommodation except that the ensuite room is a twin rather than a double. The prices are the same and this cottage is dog friendly if you have a small, well behaved dog you cannot bear to leave behind!

Meadow Barn

This is one of the loveliest shared cottages with two sets of Drench doors giving separate access to the accommodation. The living room and kitchen are really homely with stunning views across to the Mendips. There is a wood burning stove, TV and DVD player in the living room and a big shared bathroom. The bedrooms are light and spacious making it a really lovely place to spend your detox holiday.

Orchard View

Orchard View is a two bed cottage has two ensuite bathrooms so you can share a cottage and have complete privacy and the luxury of your own bathroom. This cottage has also just been renovated and has a new kitchen and comfy living room. Every window looks out into the beautiful gardens and orchards and beyond to The Tor. Orchard View is heated by a new biomass boiler so it is easy to control the heat to ensure that you are warm and snug in your cottage so you can completely relax and enjoy your holiday. Naughty goats, horses and roving chickens are also included for free in the view.

Blenheim

Blemheim is a lovely two bed cottage that has just been completely renovated including a fabulous new bathroom. There is a single and a double room (as seen in the photo) and a really big sitting room to relax in. The single room has lovely views across the garden and beyond and the double looks to the front across the Mendip Hills. Both are single occupancy.

Glamping

Adam and Eve - the E-Dens. These are the latest thing in Glamping. Brand new, very modern, totally unique and absolutely perfect for really getting away from everything. They are situated in the orchard with an incredible view up to the Tor. Each one is totally private and has its own beautiful, and personal, bathroom just yards away from your Den. They do not have TV or wifi so you can really escape from it all! They are very near the group room so your juices, classes and friends are not far away (and Wi-Fi if you need it).

The Annexe

The Annexe is a wonderfully big, light, airy and characterful cottage. It has a flagstone floor in the living room as well as a wood burning stove and a supply of wood to feed it with. It also has TV, DVD player and Wifi as well as a lovely new kitchen and very comfortable, spacious bedroom. We have priced this cottage down as it only has a shower and a rather small bathroom. There is a sunny courtyard outside with tables as well as a big table inside to work on if you absolutely have to! Perfect for time on your own or for couples sharing.

Cider House

This is another lovely cottage with many original features and lovely views. It has a big kitchen/living room - again with TV and DVD player and Wifi. The upstairs bedroom has a double bed as well as a single so is perfect for two friends sharing or couples who enjoy their own space! The newly refurbished bathroom is ensuite. A very popular cottage.

Apple Tree

This gorgeous little cottage has been completely refurbished throughout and is the perfect place to get away from everything. It has a lovely bathroom, comfy bedroom and really warm and snug living room with TV and DVD player and Wi-Fi. The stable door completes its cute, country hideaway appeal.

Bramley

Bramley is a big, one bed cottage so that you can enjoy complete privacy as well as peace and quiet and yet still be near to all the activities and facilities. It has just been renovated with brand new bathroom and a lovely double room overlooking the garden, orchard and the countryside beyond. This is the perfect place to get away from it all and have some time to yourself, or with your partner.

Tor View

Tor View is a gorgeous one bed chalet which has big, light rooms, its own private sun deck and garden, living room with TV, DVD and Wi-Fi and a wood burning stove. As the name suggests it has amazing views up to Glastonbury Tor and across the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Yoga

Guests are lucky to have Julie on the team who will be providing a relaxing and therapeutic yoga class every day. She will draw on her considerable experience to enhance your week with gentle, yet powerful, yoga poses and breathing exercises. Her classes are specifically designed to work on the abdomen and to aid the detox process. She is a wonderful teacher who enables everyone to go at their own pace.

Colonics, meditation and health talks

Each bathroom is set up with a colonic board and gravity colonic irrigation equipment (also known as colemas). The organizers recommend one a day but if you feel the need you can always have more. Guests are lucky enough to have Fiona on the team, an experienced colonic hydrotherapist and detox consultant. She will show everyone individually how to use the colema equipment and be on hand to answer questions and adjust supplements throughout the week.

Fiona is here to ensure you get the best possible detox and to look after your physical health and wellbeing. She will also be leading meditation in the mornings to enable you (should you so wish) to reconnect with an inner sense of peace and stillness that our busy lives can sometimes mask.

In her daily nutritional discussions, she will be for sharing her knowledge to help you discover which foods will give you optimum health and energy. These nutritional and health talks will also help you form a nutritional plan to take away with you, specifically tailored to your lifestyle, so that you can make positive changes to your diet and easily stick to them!

Emotional detox

Vital Detox also recognizes that detoxing is not just a physical thing - what you think and feel has been proven to actually affect your cellular structure. Prolonged negative thoughts and feelings can contribute to ill health so Vital Detox also offers you the opportunity to detox emotionally.

This is a chance to resolve old emotional issues that may be holding you back in your life. Vital Detox considers it to be such an integral part of the detox that they include a session (only if you feel you need one) with either Anna, a fully qualified and experienced homeopath and journey therapist, or Barbara, who also trained with Brandon Bays and is an skilled and versatile therapist. These sessions really can change your life!

Relationship detox

Your relationships with other people, particularly intimate relationships, can be a source of great happiness in your lives but they can are also bring up considerable pain and discomfort. You are, therefore, delighted to have Fran the team as she is a skilled relationship counsellor with many years experience working for Relate and E Harmony with couples and individuals - she can help transform all aspects of relationships. Sessions with her can be taken instead of the Journey or coaching or can be booked as an extra at a charge of 60 GBP.

You also have a detox your relationship package that includes everything we offer as part of the retreat as well as a session together with Fran and a combined astrological chart analysis and coaching session with Annie. This is an amazing chance to improve your physical health, happiness and a primary relationship all in one week. This relationship could be with a family member or friend as well as a romantic partner.

This retreat will take place in the stunning countryside in Somerset, United Kingdom.

Juices and broth

During the detox retreat week, Vital Detox provide four fresh, organic juices every day. These are made every three hours and served with a range of specific cleansing supplements. These supplements are designed to gently cleanse the bowel and collect old toxic matter so that it can be, literally, washed away. Everyone is different so we will provide different juices according to a persons individual needs.

There will also be a hot potassium broth every evening to replace lost minerals and provide warmth and nourishment. Vital Detox provides as much Glastonbury Spring water as you can drink as well as constant supply of Fionas special Detox Tea and a whole range of healing Pukka Teas to enhance your cleanse. Vital Detox also includes little extras in your cottage that will also aid the detox process.

Raw Food Feast

At the end of the week Anna will prepare a feast of raw foods for you to break your fast as well as show you how to prepare some of the dishes. You will experience how simple and delicious healthy food can be. Vital Detox does not advocate one particular way of eating, because we all have different needs, but raw food is the best way to break a fast and re-populate your bowel with essential, beneficial enzymes. Vital Detox will also give you a supply of top quality probiotics to take away with you to ensure that your bowel is protected when you start to eat again. You will not go home empty handed as we will send you on your way with enough food to get you home and resist the perils of the service stations! There will also be an opportunity for you to stock up on a wide range of healthy, organic foods from our local specialist shop.

Another wonderfully restorative aspect to the retreat is provided by Andrew and Vital Detoxs expert team of massage therapists. Andrew is trained in an incredible array of healing arts. These include Thai massage, Ayurvedic massage, Indian head massage, abdominal massage, acupuncture, reflexology and he is also trained as a naturopath. Most of our guests say that he gives the best treatments they have ever had. They also have therapists who can provide manual lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage, Swedish massage and a wonderful Ayurvedic facial treatment that is also known as the natural face lift!
