Friday 18th September to Sunday 20th September 2020
Candice is an experienced yoga teacher based in South East London. She first discovered yoga in 2004 and found it to be the perfect grounding antidote to the fast-paced and competitive world of journalism that she worked in both in London and when she moved to the beautiful beaches of Sydney.
Returning to London several years later, married with two young boys in tow, she relied on yoga all the more to keep her sane and decided to turn her passion into her career. She hasn’t looked back since.
Candice is trained in vinyasa ashtanga, pre and post-natal and kids yoga. She also teaches senior classes.
Her passion is to teach anyone interested in exercising both their bodies and their minds. She loves people and aims to ensure the practice she is providing is accessible, but at the same time fun and rewarding. She firmly believes that yoga can help anyone, no matter how inflexible or unspiritual you think you are.
About the retreat
This soulful yoga weekend in the beautiful Norfolk countryside is your chance to reset and relax. September is the perfect time of year to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city as the weather should hopefully still be beautiful. The school summer holidays are over which, let’s face it, can be quite a stressful time for parents. This weekend is your chance to leave your responsibilities behind and truly unwind, surrounded by like-minded people and the natural beauty of the English countryside.
- 2 nights’ accommodation in lovely comfy beds
- 3 delicious meals per day, plus teas and coffees
- 2 energising vinyasa flow yoga sessions in the mornings
- 2 restorative yoga sessions in the evenings – including yoga nidra to help you sleep
- As much or as little yoga as you like – no pressure!
- Wild swimming in the lake on site
- Less wild swimming in the heated pool 😉
- A run or walk up the Peddar’s Way towards the sea
- A spot of tennis

- Uninterrupted reading of your book on a sunlounger by the pool – bliss!

- Should the weather be less clement some impromptu yoga workshops can be arranged inside.

This really will be a magical getaway. Go on, you deserve it!
