Welcome to Satvada Retreats


meditating on holiday
Are you looking for a small group yoga retreat, yoga weekend, mindfulness weekend or yoga and walking holiday? We have been running nourishing small group escapes to Morocco and the UK for the past 12 years, and are proud recipients of many press accolades, as well as owners of highly-regarded Chelmsford yoga and meditation studio, Yoga at the Mill.  

Our retreats and holidays are hosted by trusted, boutique, family-run venues with a quiet wow-factor, based in and around Marrakech and at luxurious, characterful locations in England. Our intention is to offer an enriching mind/body experience, informed by a balanced programme, gentle, mindful teaching and an ethos of deep self-care. We have a particular love of Yoga Nidra (deep guided relaxation) and afternoon tea! Detox retreats, fast/vigorous approaches to yoga and rigid, jam-packed schedules are off our particular menu! 

Our loyal, trusted team of yoga and meditation teachers are chosen for their inclusive, therapeutic approach, extensive training (by some of the world's best teachers), and deep love of yoga and meditation; ancient practices with such contemporary resonance.
