Our Narnia themed yoga retreat in a day happened on Saturday December 4th – and it was its 5th year! Such a popular event that it sells out every year in the summer months, within a week of tickets being launched.  Everyone was so delighted to be able to meet up again at Barley Wood house (owned by YMCA Dulverton Group) and enjoy time together doing yoga, sharing delicious food and walking in the wonderful grounds of the house.  The 2020 event had to be cancelled due to Covid, so it made this event all the more special.  YMCA yoga teachers Trish and Sarah run the event every year and plan a morning of slightly more demanding yoga, followed by an afternoon of a more gentle approach to yoga with a wonderful Narnia themed guided meditation before tea and delicious home made cakes.  Everyone received a gift and left with a smile on the faces promising to return next year. Comments included:

“Every single part of the day was fabulous – keep doing this!”

“It felt great to be surrounded by friends and be able to relax, chat and laugh. Thank you so much for a sense of normality in these strange times.”

“Such a perfect setting – thank you for hosting the most wonderful day.”
