Retreat with us...

"Our retreats create a sacred haven of growth, connection and purpose, sharing spiritual mindful practices that allow you to retreat inwards, question what is and find greater meaning in your life."

As an independent retreat company we pride ourselves on our ability to provide authentic Yoga and Meditation Retreats. Unlike the competitive yoga tour companies, from the onset of your initial enquiry all communications are made through the manager and lead teacher Ananda, whose priority is to ensure that you find not only the right retreat for you, but that all your needs are met throughout the duration of your stay. Not only does this ensure that you get a personalised authentic yoga retreat experience, it also means our retreats remain affordably priced without any compromise to the nutritious, colourful and vibrant dishes that are created with love from the Ananda kitchen. 

On our Ananda retreats, you’ll find a new dedication and excitement about your practice, building strength, endurance and flexibility in your body, as you get the opportunity to disconnect from technology, and find the time to reflect on life and drop into true presence.

At Ananda’s Yoga and Meditation Retreats UK all our yoga sessions and extra activities are optional, just in case you would prefer to do your own thing, and take off to explore the many walks and attractions The Lake District has to offer.

We have lovingly thought through each detail in order to allow you to unravel completely and relax into an experience of pure bliss.

Ananda Yoga Retreats - "A simple must"

Literally the best retreat I could have dreamed of! I was initially hesitant to book a holiday like this alone, but all reservations soon went out of the window!

Once I had booked onto the retreat, Madeline set up a Whatsapp group for the guests to introduce ourselves and possibly share lifts to the villa. This was great as it meant we could meet at the airport on arrival and arrange to share a taxi together.

We arrived at the villa early afternoon and our rooms weren't quite ready so we were able to leave our luggage at the villa and walked down to the nearby beach for lunch.

We arrived back at the villa a couple of hours later to a lovely glass of cold fresh juice, and were shown to our rooms, where there were flower petals and a personalised post card welcoming us to the experience.

Each morning we had a fresh juice ready for us, before our morning practice, followed by a lovely breakfast. We had the day to enjoy free time, either relaxing by the pool, or heading down to the nearby beach. Lunch was around 1.30pm and always delicious, followed by more free time. Evening practice was around 6pm, followed by even more incredible food.

One day we were even treated to have dinner down on the beach - lucky to experience the most amazing backdrop, watching the sunset over the water.

Five days of complete relaxation and self-indulgence, and being fed the most amazing vegan food paired with Susi's yoga teaching expertise. Mind and body completely refreshed.

Ready to book onto next year's retreat already!
