RETREAT AND REJUVENATE

SEPTEMBER 28TH/29TH 2024

Across the last weekend of September this year I'll be offering a break from busy daily life. Tucked away in Kent you'll find a gorgeous grade II listed house built in 1623 complete with rose garden and swimming pond just 10 minutes from Tenterden - and it's all ours for the weekend! It's here that you can join me for a weekend retreat (day option available).

This retreat is all about learning and submerging yourself in all things wellness, to have fun, relax and try out some new things whilst surrounded by nature, and hopefully some sun!
The classes are beginner friendly but it does help to have some yoga experience as then you can push yourself a little, join me for one or two of my weekly group classes in and around Etchingham, or book in a private class in the run up to the retreat.

With two experienced, highly qualified yoga and wellbeing teachers at your side this is a fantastic opportunity to delve deep into your practice knowing that you are safe and practicing correctly.

The weekend is packed with wellness opportunities including Vinyasa yoga, Yin yoga, guided meditation, yoga Nidra, sauna sits, cold water dips, breathwork sessions, and delicious nutritious vegetarian food. Everything is optional and there are plenty of reading or contemplation spots or gorgeous walks that you could take alone if a moment of solitude is what you crave.

KEEP SCROLLING TO BOOK!

Just spent a long awaited week at La Finca Almeria yoga retreat - the best week ever! Ebony organised everything perfectly, from the taxi that picked me up from the airport, the daily programme of activities, the evening in Almeria and the last day on the beach, the whole week was amazing - Ebony was amazing!! I am definitely on the list for next year. I can't praise Ebony enough. Oh, and the food was the best I have eaten!

THE ITINERARY

On Saturday our day begins at 10:30am, please arrive with plenty of time to get parked and settled.

We'll start with a glass of cucumber water on the lawn, have a little natter and introduce ourselves. On that same lawn (or in the Oast if the weather isn't playing ball) we'll energise and ground ourselves with a 90 minute Yin and Yang yoga class led by Ebony. The Yang section of this session will a dynamic vinyasa flow followed by Yin - a slow practice with a focus on grounding and flexibility, leading us up to 12:30pm when Kathryn will serve our delicious lunch.

After lunch Kathryn will lead a mindful discussion walk through the surrounding country fields, giving you some time to let your food digest as well as chat about different mindfulness techniques whilst partaking in one.

You'll join Ebony back on the lawn at 2:15pm for some breathwork and guided meditation in preparation for our cold water dip in the swimming pond (it will be cool at this time of year, not cold). Now is the perfect time to enjoy the sauna if it should take your fancy.

By 4pm we'll be ready to set some more intentions over a herbal tea in time to wrap up our lovely day together at 4:30pm.

If you have chosen to spend the weekend at Stede Court then you will meet Ebony in the Oast house at 5:15pm for a yoga Nidra, you will then have some free time until dinner is served at 7pm with some optional delicious wine. Breakfast is served at 7:30am.

 

On Sunday our day will begin at 10am, for those joining us today please arrive with plenty of time to park and settle, and meet us on the lawn for a glass of cucumber water and a natter. The day will follow the same schedule as Saturday, giving you weekenders a chance to settle into the Stede Court wellness routine.

​​

You can participate in as many or as few of the activities as you would like. It’s your retreat, we want you to find a pace that is enjoyable for you.

YOUR TEACHERS

Hi! My name's Ebony.

I am Yoga Alliance YACEP adult yoga certified in 573 hours, Aerial Yoga London trained Aerial Yoga Teacher, CMA accredited Tree of Life qualified in Children Do Yoga, Sunshine Network Teacher, Thai masseuse trained through Jungle Healing accredited with The International Society of Thai Yoga Massage.

My favourite thing about teaching yoga is seeing someone take their body further than they thought they could. Our minds give up way before our bodies do and I love seeing a yogi realise how much more they are capable of.

I adore teaching retreats, the immersion into a daily practice and testing new limits coupled with being surrounded by like minded souls in a beautiful environment leaves me changed forever so I can only imagine how my yogis feel.

I've been going to Tipi yoga classes weekly since I moved to the area and they are really enjoyable. I feel excellent after leaving the class and I also learn so much from Ebony, she is very knowledgeable.
I have just returned from the Tipi Yoga Retreat in Southern Spain and it was such a fantastic week, honestly one of the best I have had in a long time. Ebony had planned every detail from the activities, classes, food and location. It was all perfect, I wouldn't change a single thing. When I look back at the week, I can't believe how much we did every day, but I came home feeling so relaxed and content.
I would recommend anyone to go on her next retreat, as long as I have already booked my place!

This was my first Yoga retreat and it was one of the best weeks of my life! I’ve come back remembering who I am and what’s it’s like to just exist again. It was a little piece of heaven.
Ebony planned a week with a lovely balance of Yin and Yang practices. Fun and other non Yoga related activities interwoven throughout, with options to do as much or as little as you wanted.
I’ve come back having made life long friends and memories I will cherish forever. Thank you Ebony for your brilliant planning and knowledge. Can’t wait to do it again soon.

Had the most amazing week at La Finca in Almeria with a group of the loveliest ladies. The whole week was planned and organised by Ebony @ Tipi Yoga.

Everything from the people, the accommodation, the surroundings, the location, the facilities (including amazing therapies provided by Rafaela) and the food were amongst the best I have ever experienced!!

Thank you to all the staff at La Finca and also to Ebony for making the week one I will remember for a very long time to come.
