About Pauntley Court
Set in stunning countryside, just two hours from London and only one hour from Bristol and Birmingham, Pauntley Court offers a tranquil escape.
Steeped in history dating back to the 1300s, it is the birthplace of Dick Whittington and was home to Elinor Fettiplace. The house is full of character and offers luxury accommodation and exquisite gardens with far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.
The first class will be on Friday evening, followed by a delicious dinner. Elena will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday, a more dynamic morning class to align to body and breath and an afternoon practice to delve deeper into the postures and relax and restore. On Sunday there will be a morning practice before breakfast, another shorter class before lunch and the end of the retreat.
Between classes there will be the opportunity to walk, enjoy the beautiful grounds, have a massage or relax in one of the comfy lounges.
Arrival time on Friday 2 December is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish on Sunday 4 December after lunch at 2pm.
Things to do
The surrounding area is perfect for a long country walk or if you fancy exploring further afield you can take a trip to Gloucester's historic cathedral and docks or add a day of walking in the Malvern Hills. There will be massages on offer in the free time and comfy sofas where you can curl up with a good book.
Accommodation & food
The luxurious rooms are spacious, light, charming and comfortable. All rooms are very well appointed, most are en-suite or have a private bathroom. Two rooms share a bathroom.
Delicious organic food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals will be vegetarian delights to nourish your body and soul.
I had a really wonderful weekend - truly nourishing, wholly inspirational and a lot of fun too. It's a beautiful venue, there was delicious food for every meal, a really super group of like-minded spirits, a great massage and an awesome teacher.Pat
I had a wonderful, relaxing time at Pauntley Court. Elena created a safe, nurturing environment and the yoga was exactly what I needed - the right level of intensity and relaxation. Keri’s cooking was a real highlight and so were the grounds and the house itself. It was really great to be under a different sky in such circumstances - something I very much needed. The organisation from YOAS was very easy. Will book again.Jessica
Had an absolutely amazing weekend. The location was beautiful, the food was perfect, Elena was a fantastic instructor. Couldn’t have asked for a better atmosphere to meditate, relax and enjoy peace. Felt so happy the whole time I was there and I’ll definitely be rebooking next year.Natasha
