meditating on holiday
Are you looking for a small group yoga retreat, yoga weekend, mindfulness weekend or yoga and walking holiday? We create nourishing, thoughtful escapes for anyone seeking to rejuvenate body & soul in exceptional surroundings, within a supportive, relaxed atmosphere. Our three-to-five night holidays and retreats are currently based in Morocco, Croatia and Norfolk.

As owners of Chelmsford-based yoga and meditation studio, Yoga at the Mill, and the proud receivers of many press accolades, we are held in high industry regard, with a trusted track record for providing welcoming, grounded and accessible escapes. 

We are especially keen to welcome newcomers to retreats, mindfulness or yoga, and our intention is to offer an enriching experience informed by a balanced programme, mindful teaching and an ethos of deep self-care. Detox retreats and jam-packed schedules are off our particular menu!

Expect a loyal team of teachers picked for their inclusive, therapeutic approach, and deep love of yoga and meditation - ancient practices with such contemporary resonance. We have taken our background in travel and health journalism into our quest to find family-owned venues with a quiet wow-factor. We promise to treat you with delicious, wholesome, balanced food (always locally sourced), including afternoon tea and home-made cake!

Our Croatian retreats offer a relaxed schedule of guided gentle walking from the door amongst pine forests and olive groves, with glimpses of the sea; three hours' daily mindful yoga; exceptional cuisine, locally sourced from the owners' gardens where possible; time to swim, rest, breathe.
