Spring feels like it’s just around the corner, and with that energy we warmly invite you to shake off winter’s hibernation and stretch into our winter yoga and conservation weekend – we’ll be weaving together expansive yoga with rewarding conservation – you can wander through beautiful woods, practice a ‘cat pose’; warm yourself by log-burning stoves, try out some simple meditation techniques – and enjoy great company and shared meals. We’ll be planting Holly and Hawthorn trees, clearing some areas of the woodland to encourage greater biodiversity, and learning about coppicing Hazel.
We have a magical Saturday night planned, led by Agatha Manouche who has many years’ experience of running groups at Hazel Hill. Agatha will be taking us on a personal journey to reflect on what we wish for in 2016, exploring this turning-point in the year as winter transforms to spring.
Just 7 miles from Salisbury, Hazel Hill Wood is a 70 acre local woodland and centre for conservation, education and community events with a focus on strengthening our connection with nature and exploring sustainable lifestyles.
Our weekend runs from Friday 5th February at 6pm and costs from £70 including all meals and 2 night’s basic accommodation, and we end on Sunday 7th February at 3pm.
“Jude, Louisa and I are excited to be running this event which for the first time brings yoga and outdoor activities together“ said Marcos Frangos, General Manager for Hazel Hill Wood and co-facilitator for the weekend. “We’ll be carrying out fun and rewarding work in the woods, whilst also enjoying some innovative and relaxing yoga in the warmth of our wonderful off-grid buildings.”
