Are you looking for a yoga retreat, yoga weekend, mindfulness weekend or yoga and walking holiday? We create nourishing small group escapes for anyone seeking to rejuvenate body & soul in exceptional surroundings, in 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, we are held in high industry regard, with a trusted track record for providing exceptionally 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 thoughtful, balanced programme, mindful teaching and an ethos of deep self-care. Detox retreats and jam-packed schedules are off our 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.
