Wild swimming & Pranayam

On one morning perform an offering ceremony to Isis, Goddess of the Thames (before diving in!).
All our food is organic and locally sourced and lovingly prepared with your health and satisfaction in mind. We are so lucky to be surrounded by passionate and ethical growers!

The Underworld was always the source of individual power, sovereignty, revelation, divination, yet we often shy away from it seeing it as taboo. In this guided meditation, we’ll explore the land of the Midnight Sun.
Yoga was never meant as a mere “wellbeing” tool, but rather was a method to blow your mind! Liminal yoga is about getting back to this essence of spirituality, free from dogma.
