The Restorative Retreat

Island yogi Gem Hansen guides an uplifting retreat of rest, relaxation and restoration on a tranquil winter weekend on Tresco...

29th November - 2nd December 2024 (£435 per person)
7th - 10th February (£435 per person)

Combining relaxing and restorative yoga, mindful meditation and an appreciation of this beautiful British isle, this escape allows you to pause, relax and refresh.

Focusing around the art of restorative practice, this retreat is all about stillness: contrary - yet complementary - to movement practices that are normally associated with the general use of the term 'yoga'. Life ought to be a delicate balance of movement and stillness, work and rest. However, more often than not, our modern lifestyles require us to be active and productive. Restorative provides the yin to the yang - the chance to be still and at peace.

"This retreats welcomes guests with no previous yoga experience; including those who might have had recent illness or injury, beginners to yoga and meditation in this style, pregnant women, seniors, or anyone who may be grieving or suffering emotional upheaval."

Island yogi Gem Hansen leads you through this serene three-night break during the undiscovered yet supremely beautiful island winter.

Your break includes:

  • Three nights' Bed & Breakfast accommodation at The New Inn
  • Three 60-minute Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra sessions, 105-minute Restorative Yoga practice and a meditative Woodland Walk with island yogi Gem Hansen
  • Entry to Tresco Island Spa and the Abbey Garden throughout your stay
  • On-island transfers

The break cost is £435 per person, based on two people sharing a room.

Non-participating partners are most welcome (£330 per person), excluding yoga sessions. Single occupancy rates are available on request.

To make a booking, please call the Island Office on 01720 422849 or email us.

Classes Only - For Islanders & Cottage Guests

If you're already on the islands - whether as a resident or staying in one of our holiday cottages - you're most welcome to join the Restorative Retreat on a class-only basis.

You'll be able to relax into the three 60-minute Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra sessions and the 105-minute Restorative Yoga practice for just £90 per person for all four sessions.

Break Itinerary

On such a blissfully relaxing break, we've kept the itinerary simple, allowing you to intertwine yogic and meditative practice with moments of solitude or sociable explorations of the island.

On Friday evening, Yoga Nidra helps you drop into a yogic sleep with this ancient art of meditation. You will be invited to lie down in savasana and be guided with gentle instruction into a state of deep, blissful awareness.

Saturday morning sees a Relaxing Yoga practice. Passive shapes using soft props to unwind and access stillness. Deliberate, slow breathing results in a feeling of calm and increased well-being.

There are plenty of opportunities to explore Tresco - perhaps finding a quiet spot on the island's wild north end, a place to rest on your favourite beach, or enjoying our revitalising island spa facilities.

On Saturday evening, Gem leads a Restorative Yoga session - a chance to really slow down and find sanctuary in a spacious practice, holding poses in comfort with soft props. Candlelight and soothing music will create an atmosphere of ease and calm, followed by the embrace of a warming drink and sweet treat.

Awake on Sunday morning with an invitation to share a mindful wander through Tresco's trees, followed by an invitation to join the group for traditional pub lunch at the New Inn.

Finally, on Sunday evening, you'll enjoy a second chance to explore the deeper levels of relaxation available between the realms of wakefulness and sleep. Surrender yourself.
