please get in touch if you would like to know any more information, we would love to share this wonderful weekend with you.
SGP has been running retreats for more than 15 years, and this will be another beautiful weekend of connection, movement, relaxation, free time to walk the beautiful beaches and rugged coastal paths or the gorgeous national trust lands that surround us. Eat well, laugh, enjoy and be you.
invite you to step away from the daily “have to’s” and pressures to come and
indulge, nourish, nurture and replenish, finding sanctuary for your soul
Open your heart, to be seen and show up as you are already.
To find ease and joy in just being present, to be with ease in your practice.
Taste good foods,
Lie, be still and be bathed in sound.
Be surrounded by nature, art and sculptures.
Connect back to YOU. Your time.
Gentle yoga, moving through asanas and breath to release built up tension and make space in our bodies and mind so we can feel more ease and flow
Sound Baths help trigger the relaxation response helping us to return to our natural resonance and harmony creating positive wellbeing.
Sound can be our anchor to help us shift our focus away from the constant fluctuations of the mind, allow us to be present, absorbing the sounds, it is possible to release tensions, discomforts, release emotional pressure, gain clarity and insights, feel grounded, it can help with burn out and frustrations and help us find joy and calm.

November Term, an enriched program of Mind, Body, Soul with its influences being about embodiment, feeling, sensing, awakening, somatic and interoception.
Interoception– defined as the internal state of the body. It encompasses the brain’s process of integrating signals relayed from the body allowing for nuanced representation of the physiological state of the body. Why is this important? For maintaining homeostatis in the body and potentially facilitating self awareness. Misrepresentations of internal states, disconnection, have been suggested to underlie anxiety and depression.
When you can experience your body, everything can fall into place from movement itself, clarity of thought, personal relationships, releasing tensions emotional and physical. This topic alone can send me off into a whole realm of topics and discussions hence why I am opening up the ABC to Wellbeing Program to help you create, experience and understand it in an embodied sense. This course will be so valuable and life changing and even enabling you to get even more joy, peace, ease and flow out of everyday life, work, relationships to self and others, including seeing more depth into our monthly programs. So please register your interest, maybe even receive the ABC Wellbeing program for a gift for YOU or a loved one, friend for Christmas!
Anyway, back to November, 😊, the nights are drawing in, so being mindful of the season, and circadian rhythms the evening sessions will be gentle or strength based but with both you will be winding down early and having 15 minutes of relaxation/meditation to settle energies and the parasympathetic nervous system into a rested state, perfect to release the days stress and prepare the body and mind for goodnights sleep. Remember to follow this through with switching off gadgets well before bedtime, choosing your lights for your house to be soft and warm not harsh lights as this messes up the circadian rhythm , eat earlier in the evening, avoid stress provoking situations, news and TV will also help.
Thursday Barre is back! use a table, worktop, window ledge or even a wall. A whole body standing push, pull, arc and curl for the most beautiful sensory stretch session , In my opinion.😊
Please share the program so others can join us and benefit and feel the best they can be, everyday !
Have a wonderful day
much love Sue 🌟🙏🏼🤍
