Being, not doing


Our first ‘Being, not doing’ retreat will run from Saturday 7th to Wednesday 11th September inclusive, 2019.  During the retreat, the following activities will be on offer:


  • Yoga - to suit all levels, on a 1-1 and group basis

  • Meditation

  • Positive wellbeing sessions

  • Journal writing

  • Life coaching on an individual basis

  • Free time to be and not do


All activities will be optional – you don’t have to do everything.  You can choose what you want to do and tailor the retreat to suit you.  You can enjoy the luxury of time to do what you want and spending your free time appreciating the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Cousserat.  We limit our retreats to a maximum of 8 participants so that you get focused attention throughout your stay. This will also ensure we can achieve a friendly, relaxed environment.
