The Retreat Programme

 4 distinct yoga practices - energising Vinyasa morning practice and calming and restorative practices in the evening.

Four open water swims, including an evening swim in the moonlight.  


Walking meditation and outdoor sense exploration to a National Trust Nature reserve.

  Chanting and singing.

Daily vegetarian and vegan meals (and cake!) cooked by resident chefs at the Chapel.

During this retreat we will be looking at the practice of open water swimming and its connection to your yoga practice. Both on your mat, and in the water we will focus on awareness of movement, breathing, and mindfulness.

"The thrill of plunging - or dipping a toe into water brings joy, confidence, adventure and friendship. It can wash away stress and sadness, pain and grief. Here, water is a great healer, a place to feel gloriously, elementally alive and in touch with yourself, with others and with nature."

Anna Deacon

The weekend's activities include yoga, chanting and sound meditations, lead by the director of River Flow, Graham Nolan.


You will be staying in beautiful accommodation at Chapel on the Green and will be nourished with the most delicious vegetarian and vegan food.

Throughout the retreat you will also be encouraged and guided though the exhilarating ritual of wild swimming. This will include morning and afternoon swims, as well as a night swimming session under the stars, at specially chosen local spots.

All swimming will be guided by experienced and qualified open water teachers. ​The swimming programme is structured for both beginners and experienced swimmers and our teachers will guide you though the steps to help you acclimatise to the water, using breathing and mindfulness techniques.
