About Braziers Park
This hidden treasure, set deep in the beautiful countryside of south Oxfordshire, offers a relaxing holiday in nature less than two hours from London. This weekend retreat is an opportunity to revitalise and enjoy reconnecting with self and others.
Braziers Park is a warm country manor house (formally home to 007!), set deep in beautiful countryside and the rolling Chiltern Hills of South Oxfordshire, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The location is perfect for a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating retreat.
The old manor is Grade II listed in the strawberry gothic style, it has so much character and beauty. Real log fires, plentiful sofas and a grand piano are amongst its charms - all set in 57 acres of land with beautiful gardens. Braziers is a working eco-community with sheep, chickens, a walled vegetable garden and an ancient orchard. The community welcomes you to enjoy the rustic old charm of Braziers Park and join in with the community.
The daily programme
A hatha yoga based practice with an integration of other traditions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for two hours.
The day will begin with silent meditation and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free time, massages and the afternoon yoga practice.
In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema, bonfires and chanting.
Things to do
Braziers Park is very quaint and quirky with plenty of space to nestle down with a book. There's the library, the study, dining room and an informal space by the log fire and grand piano.
There is a lovely woodland walk, which is a great opportunity to experience some of the wildlife beauties of the estate. There will be delicious vegetarian food and plenty of time just to hang out and chat, meet new people, read, relax and enjoy being in the community in natural surroundings. A variety of massage treatments will also be available at additional cost.
