4 days of yoga, meditation, wellbeing, peace, fun and relaxation,
deep in the Essex countryside
4 days to restore your energy and wellbeing. Rediscover your wellness in the serene Essex countryside, near Bradwell-on-Sea, with great views over the estuary. We will help you re-find your balance. 4 days of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, dietary, health, relationship wellbeing, nature, games, exercises, joy, laughter and contemplation. A truly holistic retreat.
If you have been stressed or anxious, or have had any relationship difficulties, then this retreat will be perfect for you. Not relevant? We have deliberately designed this retreat to 'cover all bases', so no matter what you are looking for, you will be taking away some valuable life skills and strategies. This is a real chance for you to revitalise your energy. With plenty of time for you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that life by the estuary brings.
All aspects of wellbeing will be covered including how to enhance your relationships, how to find your inner power, tap into your intuition and discover your true potential. Think of this as a refined tune-up for your mental health.
We will have yoga and meditation sessions every day, led by experienced leaders and by the way, if you have ever struggled to meditate, then we have good news for you. You will be using Vitali-Chi Balance, a copper energy system designed to help you get into the ‘zone’. It really does make meditating easy. It also delivers a myriad of health benefits.
Our yoga and meditation sessions will be outside – weather permitting! We really want you to have a wonderful and relaxing time, and we will do everything we can to make that happen.
This is a great opportunity to meet and make new and maybe lifelong friends, and also spend quality time with your hosts Jill and Allen Jesson, founders of Vitali-Chi (and creators of their fabulous wellbeing and skincare range).
Jill has been a wellbeing therapist for over 35 years. Allen, along with his culinary skills, will share some of his stress management and other knowledge gained in over 30 years of corporate life.
3 delicious energy giving meals a day, thoughtfully sourced, cooked and prepared from scratch. All dietary requirements (gluten free, vegan etc.) can be requested and catered for.
On the second night we are planning to have a picnic on our private beach, so don’t forget to bring your swimming costume if you fancy an evening wild swim. Or for the less adventurous, you can picnic in the garden. It’s your call. We will be blessed with the long June evenings and we are deliberately starting the retreat on the longest day, the Summer Solstice. (September also weather permitting).
We have designed enough free time for you so you can do some bird watching on your own, or with our very experienced bird watcher. You may choose to go canoeing on the estuary, take a boat trip or enjoy the 30 minute walk to the local pub. Why not enjoy a game on the lawn, or even a session in the hot tub, maybe with a glass of something? Whilst we’re on that subject, we’ll provide the ambience, the hot tub, the view over the estuary, we’ll even supply the soft drinks. But if you do want a glass of bubbly or whatever, then please BYO.
Why not paint one of your favourite scenes? We’ll even provide the brushes, water colours and canvas for you. Or learn a new skill? Anyone for Bridge? Or poetry? Or watch Netflix and chill? We really don’t mind, it is YOUR retreat. You could even take an evening walk and follow in the footsteps of St.Cedd to The Chapel of St.Peter-On-The-Wall
