Yoga

The Yoga classes are a combination of energising Dynamic Yoga in the morning followed by a more restorative practice of Hatha yoga later in the day. The emphasis of the postures will be on detoxification and together we will work through yoga postures that compress, twist and stretch the body in order to aid elimination via the digestive system. This will help you feel lighter both physically and mentally which will in turn assist you in reaching a state of relaxation.

Yoga Nidra: Yogic sleep

Yoga Nidra (meaning ‘yogic sleep’) is a form of deep relaxation and is offered before bed to encourage restful sleep so you will feel refreshed & renewed both mentally & physically.

Pranayama: Breath Control

During each yoga session we will also practice breathing techniques that will assist your detox and yoga practice by calming the nervous system & stimulating the digestive system. The practice of Pranayama is also known to improve mental focus and clarity and improve ones’ lung capacity.
We hope that when you leave our retreat you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated. To help we provide a wide range of holistic therapies, which are available at extra cost. These treatments can be booked when you book your place on the retreat and include:

  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Thai Yoga Massage
  • Reiki

TESTIMONIAL

“I wanted to share with you how my weekend at Tilton went with Lynette. The house was very comfortable and Lisa who looked after us was just super! Lynette was an inspiration and naturally followed the level and needs of our group, just perfect! I came away feeling relaxed and almost floated out of the house after our last Yoga session which was help in the garden under the trees.”
Had an absolutely amazing weekend at Tilton House. Fantastic yoga, a lovely group of people, beautiful surroundings and delicious food. Loved every minute of it and came away feeling completely rejuvenated. Lynette was an incredible teacher and created a really warm and nourishing space for us all. Myself and my friend Emma will definitely be on the lookout to book further retreats in the future.
