Tilton House

South Downs, Sussex

 

Hatha Yoga, Relaxation and Detox Retreats at Tilton House – with Anna Brook

Nestled underneath the South Downs and edged by woodland with far reaching views across the Sussex Weald, Tilton House sits impressively in the natural landscape. The Georgian country house was once home to economist John Maynard Keynes and ballerina Lydia Lopokova as their retreat for contemplation and calm. It is the perfect venue for our retreat as both a yoga room and yurt are offered for our classes as well as lots of space to chill out and relax.

The house has been tastefully decorated throughout, bringing new life to this wonderful Georgian house. All seven bedrooms were decorated using natural materials. Every room has plenty of character and all have views over either the Sussex Weald or Downs. The garden has many mature trees and the fire-pit in a woodland clearing provides the perfect setting for stargazing as night draws in.

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

“My body felt like jelly after having my third child. After only four sessions of Pilates with Sally I felt a surge of strength and got a good report from the physio – something I hadn’t had all year! Sally has given me the energy to keep going” Camillla Cavendish
