SPRING YOGA RETREAT WEEKEND


Spring Yoga Retreat Weekend with Anna Nowak and Will Wheeler

YOGA . NOURISHMENT . PEOPLE

Put a spring in your step and refresh your body and mind with our very first LEVELSIX Yoga Retreat with Will Wheeler and Anna Nowak.

Escape the city for a relaxing and revitalising weekend in May at The Quaives; a beautiful East Kent retreat hideaway in the countryside. From daily yoga, nourishing food to sumptuous surroundings and wanders in nature, it’s your time to retreat, recharge, and reconnect to the world in a more balanced, purposeful way.

Deepen your practice, meet beautiful people and discover new possibilities with us.


LOCATION AND VENUE

The Quaives provides a real sense of retreat with a touch of luxury; a beautiful small estate set in 19 acres of manicured gardens and fields and surrounded by the peaceful countryside of East Kent.

Accommodation options range from 3 luxury cottages with doubles, twins and bunk-bed room options, plus an 8-bed Scandinavian style bunk-bed dormitory.

There is a brand new beautiful yoga studio with high ceilings, lots of light and underfloor heating, a modern Scandinavian style communal diner-lounge with log burner and an on-site professional kitchen for Woody to cook up a storm every day. There is also a tennis court, cedar wood pavilion for on-site treatments, as well as beautiful formal gardens and grounds to explore that open onto meadows and the lakes beyond.

The venue is only a short distance from the two stunning english villages of Ickham and Wickhambreaux; the latter is located along the Little Stour river complete with a five storey water mill and village green with many charming period buildings. Canterbury is also only a few minutes drive away.

THE YOGA
The yoga on this weekend retreat is open to all levels.

The morning practice will be more dynamic and vinyasa based, whilst the evening practice will be slower, incorporating restorative postures and meditation to promote a deep and restful sleep.
All sessions will be adapted to the individual and modifications of the poses will be offered to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and individual attention.

ABOUT ANNA NOWAK
Anna has spent the last 16 years or her professional life working as a dance artist and teacher. She feels at home with the subject of movement, body awareness, injuries and playing with one's own limitations.

She trained with many wonderful yoga teachers in India, USA, Canada and Europe practising in many styles, studying Pranayama and various Meditation techniques. Anna completed her 200 hours certification in Vinyasa and Ashtanga in Sampoorna Yoga School in India, where she returned for 3 months in 2017 to assist the teacher training programme.

Anna believes yoga is a deeply transformative practice, which she feels grateful to share with others.

In her classes she places emphasis on the rhythm of sequencing with the connection to breath. She invites her students to play on the edge, be curious and always focus on correct alignment.

THE FOOD
You will enjoy the most delicious, healthy and wholesome food and drink over the weekend, inspired by the seasons. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be designed to be nutritious, healthy and filling.

Woody, our co-founder and chef believes it’s vital that we consider what we eat, both for ourselves and our planet. This choice can too easily become automatic and convenience-led. Expect healthy vegetarian dishes avoiding any unnatural ingredients or processes.

ABOUT WOODY PYKE
Born and bred in Peckham, much of Woody’s culinary experience has been gained locally. He is one of the co-founders of LEVELSIX and is the brains behind the delicious food and drink in the studio cafe.

Woody designs menus inspired by his interest in nutrition and as far as possible by the seasonality of fruit and vegetables. Woody makes nearly everything himself, including almond milk, yoghurt, kombucha and raw vegan flapjacks.

As well as serving a continuously changing menu of fresh juices, smoothies and delicious meals, Woody likes to share his passion and experience and now runs fermentation workshops, kombucha masterclasses and tea tastings as well as hosting yoga workshops, with dinner and supper clubs.
