Diwali Light Yoga Retreat
20 – 22 October 2023
Tofte Manor, Sharnbrook
An authentic celebration of Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights! Exquisite surroundings, natural beauty, autumn hues, labyrinths, log fires, food, friendship and love!
Tofte Manor is a stunning 17th century Manor House, located in the quintessentially English village of Sharnbrook.
Tofte Manor is an historic building of exceptional beauty, held in stunning, landscaped gardens. The architecture has been exquisitely restored and it is a wonderful place to relax, rejuvenate and be inspired.
The glorious gardens offer nature’s beauty, serenity and space. As you wander, you encounter sweeping lawns, rose arbours, ancient trees, ageless statues, a crystal ball water feature and an enchanting stone labyrinth.
The Manor House offers luxurious bedrooms, created with imagination and attention to detail for your comfort. The old Stables Courtyard has also been carefully restored and converted into beautifully designed contemporary cottages.
We shared a blissful sunrise and sunset sadhana in the beautiful Yoga Yurt, twinkling fairy lights and candles. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we explored Diwali inspired Vinyasa Flow and Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices embodied the light essence of Lakshmi and Saraswati, leaving yogis feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we surrendered to a restorative Yin Yoga practice, nourishing the darkness to illumine the moonlight.
In their free time, yogis enjoyed the magical surroundings of this historic Manor: the landscaped gardens, ancient woodland, elemental labyrinth, earth labyrinth, luxurious massage and crystal healing. In the evenings, we shared delicious vegan culturally-inspired food, log fires, yoga nidra, friendship and love!
Our Diwali Light Yoga Celebration was blessed by sunshine and rain-shine, the beauty of nature, the joy of yoga and the connection of friendship!
