Tofte Manor, Sharnbrook
3 – 5 December 2021
A Winter Solstice Yoga celebration! Exquisite surroundings, natural beauty, winter sunshine, labyrinths, log music, live music, festive food and friendship!
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 sadhana in the beautiful Crystal Room, overlooking the parterre gardens. Moving through beautiful sequencing and creative namaskars, we explored Mythic Vinyasa Flow and inspired Dharma Yoga. These soulful practices held the light of the Winter Solstice, leaving yogis feeling lovingly uplifted and alive. In the afternoons, we surrendered to a restorative Yin Yoga practice, allowing yogis to rest, renew and rejuvenate. Our closing sadhana was serenaded and uplifted with live music by Gina Vermilio.
In their free time, yogis enjoyed the magical surroundings of this historic Manor: the landscaped gardens, ancient woodland, stone labyrinth, luxurious massage and crystal healing. In the evenings, we shared delicious, nutritious vegan festive food, a fire circle with ceremonial cacao and a scared healing sound bath by Gina Vermillo in the peaceful Sanctuary, a harmonious soul space for total well-being.
We shared the Winter Solstice blessed by sunshine, the beauty of nature, the joy of yoga and the love of friendship!
