fair oak farm, Fair Oak Farm, Witherenden Road, Mayfield, East Sussex TN20 6RS

yoga soul is proud to invite you for a new year retreat at Fair Oak Farm, a country estate set in the stunning Sussex countryside, in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, yet only an hour from London.

Why this retreat?

This will be a new year retreat with a difference – combining practices of mandala, yin and rocket yoga with Qi Gong. We will also incorporate intimate journaling practices where we will manifest the life we deserve, and to open our eyes to the understanding that we are in control of our destiny.

For three nights of magic, this program has been designed that you get every last drop of insight, rest, knowledge and of course – yoga – out of it.

You will be led by two of yoga souls dream team, Samuel Nwokeka & Rachel Cruickshank, who met on their first ever teacher training in 2017, since then formed an unbreakable bond. You will be in the most amazing hands for the retreat.

Your new year retreat will allow you to dive into the physical practice, more spiritual journey and intention setting.

Morning Yoga

Both rocket and mandala vinyasa can be physically demanding. We will look to explore both of these yoga types in an inquisitive and playful manner to allow you to further develop your physical practice in a safe space with support from two teachers in one class. This will ensure that everyone gets enough 1-1 student – teacher tie throughout class which would not be possible during a normal yoga class. Think lots of assists, adjusts and support.

Esoteric Practice

Yin and Qi Gong both follow the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine which look further at energy and life force. Throughout these sessions we will delve deeper into the more emotional and energetic channels of our body. This will allow you to move through blockages and unlock new space within yourself.

Intention Setting

Throughout this retreat weekend we will focus specifically on setting intentions for the year to come. This will be manifesting like no other, drawing upon visualisation, meditation and affirmation to consciously create the reality we want to live.

Your teachers

Samuel Nwokeka

Co-founder of yoga soul Samuels journey in yoga has been long in a short space of time, after coming to yoga in 2015, Samuel has gone on to practice and learn many different ‘styles’ of yoga – but his philosophy and mission remain the same. Showing people their potential to expand boundaries, to not be bound by edges but to create new ones.

His classes are strong, energetic but rooted in self-enquiry through using the physical body as a pathway to that Ananda we all seek but come to know it’s not through seeking, but through letting go.

Rachel Cruickshank

Rachel is a yoga teacher and naturopathic nutritional therapist. Combining her knowledge of natural medicine, the body and yoga, Rachel aims to restore mental and physical balance in her classes.

Rachel’s style of yoga is playful and fun but will allow you to go deeper into yourself and start on a journey of self discovery. There is a strong focus on breath, mindful movement and meditation, aiming to bring the practice off the mat and into our daily lives.
