We will go on a journey with our body and breath, with movement and stillness, to balance our energy and remember our wisdom and strength.
The Journey Day Retreat will be carefully curated to include a beautiful blend of:
- Movement: to strengthen and align (yoga, pilates and intuitive movement)
- Stillness: to deeply rest with restorative meditation.
- Fireside Gathering
- Time to chill and relax in our hot tub and relaxation area
- Somatic practices to manage stress and overwhelm
- Journaling and wisdom practices to embody our feminine energy and strength
- Beautiful, wholesome food to nourish and fuel us on our journey within
Take time out of your busy life to pause and relax; to feel more energised and restored.
A day to reset, sometimes that’s all we need!

FAQs about Sandhill House

Yes we can, please can you let us know your food allergy upon booking.
What if I have pain or a previous injury?
Please do inform me of any injuries or ongoing pain issues. It is important to remember that you are in charge of your practice and well-being. Never force yourself to do something uncomfortable; modify and take breaks as you need.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT THE SANDHILL HOUSE RETREAT
Step out of your busy modern world to connect with the healing energy and presence of nature. Forest bathing to calm and balance; sea dips to activate and energise.
Both these practices are beneficial to regulate our nervous system and balance our energy.
This ancient Japanese practice involves slowly walking through the forest while we focus our senses with mindful practices. Forest bathing offers an antidote to our stress-filled lives with a gentle meditative approach to being in nature, supporting our body’s natural capacity for wellness and healing. The focus is on connection as we practice the art of stillness in nature.
Cold Water Immersion
Cold water immersion has been reported to benefit the body in many ways,
This is an optional practice on our weekend retreats! However, there is an energy and vitality that comes with immersing yourself in the wildness of the cold, salty Atlantic ocean; creating a sense of aliveness and renewed zest for life!
