During the weekend you can explore a range of approaches to yoga, meditation, and pranayama (breathing), suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike.

The programme of Hatha flow, Ashtanga, Yin, and Partner Yoga will stretch both your mind and your body. These will highlight the benefits of yoga, challenging your assumptions about your own capabilities and learning how to practice it safely the rest of your life.

The combination of Dynamic Ashtanga practice and Hatha flow make for a fulfilling yoga weekend, suitable for all levels.

The venue

Henlow has a 50 year history as a health farm and has been a centre of peace for centuries. Cisterian Monks once occupied The Grange, building the spectacular weir on the river Hiz that flows close to the house today. Over eighty indulgent spa therapies are available.

Just an hour from London and nestled in 150 acres of parkland Henlow is an ideal country escape, and a perfect pampering retreat.

Things to do

You can relax in the steam room and Jacuzzi, take a dip in the huge swimming pool, visit the fully equipped gym or participate in some of the many classes that take place each day. Classes range from hula hooping, spinning, aqua classes and Pilates.

Each of our guests has one Thalassotherapy session included in the weekend. A mineral rich warm pool with hydrotherapy jets to stimulate and tone tired aching muscles. Excellent for treating cellulite, arthritis and general muscular joint aches and pains. N.B This is a group treatment.

To make the most of breathtaking grounds you can enjoy a bike ride, guided ramble or power walk, a game of tennis, or go jogging. Please book bikes and tennis courts in reception.

Food

The food is plentiful, delicious and served in buffet style in the restaurant. You may have breakfast and lunch in your robe, please wear regular/more formal clothes for dinner (i.e. not your robe or yoga clothes).

Should you feel peckish outside of mealtimes there is a small tea/coffee lounge in the conservatory overlooking the pool.

A blend of contemporary and traditional Henlow has 71 luxurious rooms all designed with your comfort in mind, some overlooking the peaceful river and the fast-flowing weir. Relax in the comfort of your room, a tranquil haven within this truly beautiful country retreat.

All rooms are en-suite with complimentary toiletries, flat screen TV, DVD, kettle, hair dryer and telephone.
