Yoga and Transformational Healing Arts Retreat
With Craig Norris
Near East Grinstead
August 25 - 28 2023
Craig's August Bank Holiday Retreat is back! This year, we will be Glamping near East Grinstead in cabins and yurts just 28 miles from central London. Searching around I found the most beautiful magical venue. Forest Garden is a little woodland eco village set on 6 acres where accommodation is 2 or 3 people sharing, each with a small double bed. You will be staying in cabins and yurts set apart from each other so feels like you have your own little private corner of the woods. Being immersed in nature you get to experience the healing benefits of Shinrin-yoko (forest bathing) and a large natural pond to swim in. Each accommodation has its own kitchenette with gas cooker inside and outside fire pit. 2 hot showers and 2 cold showers as well as a top quality sauna are available for everyone to use. The price includes all practices as well as accommodation and 3 meals a day. Tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit will be available to graze on as you wish. There will be options for both omnivores and vegetarians. Other dietary requirements can also be catered for. Please mention your needs when booking.
During the bank holiday long weekend (Friday to Monday) we will explore all aspects of our being, from our physical body to our transpersonal selves through the means of yoga, meditation, chants, breathwork and shamanic practices. All sessions are optional and you can do as much or as little as you like. Extra massage and therapy treatments available upon request
Schedule for the day:
Morning breathwork and meditation
Ceremony and Forrest Yoga practice
Gentle yoga with either transformative breathwork or shamanic journeying or some other transpersonal practice of self discovery.
Total Price for the 3 nights and 4 days retreat: £675
A non refundable deposit of £300 will secure your place.
The venue is 2.5 miles from East Grinstead station that has direct trains from both Victoria and London Bridge and is easily accessed by car too.

The retreat centre chosen by Craig again is Bamboo yoga retreat that was said to be among the best yoga and mindfulness retreats in 2018 by the guardian. Set on the beautiful Polem Beach in South Goa where Craig has spent much time and so know the area well. Craig wishes to take you on this yoga holiday and share the practices from yoga, buddhism and shamanism and setting that He has both found so life enriching and healing. This is an ideal opportunity to deepen your existing yoga practice or begin a new one. Practices with be able to cater for beginners and more experienced students. Accommodation is in beach huts that you can either share with a friend or a new friend that you meet at the retreat or take as single occupancy. The Yoga Shala has the full view of the beach in the southern most corner of Polem. Polem is the last beach in the state of South Goa and with so little there its like being on a desert Island. But not too far to get to the relative civilisation of Patnem and Palolem.
