Why Join us?

As Highly Sensitive People, we know just how important it is to come together in community and connect with like-minded people. This is why we are so excited to offer this Highly Sensitive Person Retreat for HSP where we have a unique opportunity to engage in holistic wellbeing activities, express our authentic selves and find ways to feel supported and nourished by each other. The retreat balances workshops, embodied activities such as yoga, dance and meditation. Time for connection through sharing circles and fireside songs and sound healing. There is also time to immerse in nature and free time to simply relax, rest and soak in the environment.

Guest Yoga Teacher

Yoga Workshop with Vishal

Vishal is a Yoga Alliance registered teacher with a residential teacher training qualification from Samyak Yoga Ashram in India. His practice is grounded in the values and key principles of traditional Indian yoga. The intention is to take you back to the roots of yoga and offer an authentic practice that can add more balance to your modern day life. Vish donates 10% of proceeds to a London based not-for profit organisation called Project Yogi. 'I believe the success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live and promote our relationships. This has led me to what I feel is my purpose (or perhaps one of many) in life – to use this gift to inspire and directly contribute to positive change in the lives of others and the community, by drawing on my experiences and making the benefits of the teachings available to more people. And, not to forget, to have some fun along the way!'

Josh has been DJ’ing for two decades and involved with Conscious Dance practices since discovering 5 Rhythms in 2015. Josh has been running “Dancing the Elements” since the summer of 2021 and has developed his own down-to-earth, intuitive and empathetic style.
