GREEN ESCAPE, OCKLEY, SURREY
This one-of-a-kind glamping venue will take you to back to basics and amongst nature, whilst still providing the creature comforts of hot showers, roaring fires and cosy beds. We'll have exclusive use of 6 acres of woodland all to ourselves with only cows and llamas for neighbours. Sleeping in cosy, kitsch shepherds huts by night, your days will be spent practicing yoga and meditation, walking to the top of Leith Hill if you're feeling energetic, or swinging in a hammock with a good book if you're not. See you around the campfire for some organic hot chocolate!
As much as we love Stretching the City, we're also fond of escaping the big smoke for a weekend of wellbeing in the Sussex, Somerset and Surrey countryside. We've collaborated with Stretching the City's long-standing yoga teacher and retreat hostess, Polly Mason to deliver a range of weekend yoga retreats designed to blend the perfect mix of healthy activities with relaxing down-time. Fusing twice-daily yoga with healthy wholesome foods, the fresh countryside air, wellbeing workshops, pampering treatments and the company of like minded souls, our aim is that you leave the weekend feeling suitably de-stressed, stretched-out and with a spring in your step.
From late 2017 onwards, all retreats are run by Polly's Yoga. Please be sure to mention Stretching the City when booking.
