Reserve Your Spot

Gaunts House has the fortune of being situated on a heavenly estate of protected Dorset countryside totalling nearly 2000 acres. The estate has a four-acre lake as well as many acres of private woods which, in the spring, are full of life and carpeted with bluebells. The grounds are cared for in an environmentally friendly way and are open for all to indulge in the tranquillity and enjoy country walks. 

There will be morning yoga classes with more gentle evening sessions, followed by guided mindfulness meditation, pranayama (ancient Yogic breathing techniques) and deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra). 

All levels are welcome!

My retreats attract every level of practitioner. I always have a mixture of people attending. I can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of yoga varies too as I’ve trained in quite a few disciplines, such as Sivananda ( Hatha style ) and Ashtanga. I really work with the feel of the group and meet the needs and requirements of my class participants in that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.

We’ll start with a 2 hour yoga & meditation session on Friday night to ease us into the weekend, followed by dinner. Yoga will be held in the ballroom. In the classes, I will be giving personal adjustments to correct postures and guiding you through the breath ( pranayama ) and meditation. Please bring your own mats. Thank you

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
