SPRING YOGA WEEKEND
Join Kirstin for a weekend of yoga & relaxation in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. As we transition from winter to spring, take a pause from the busy-ness of daily life and invest in you.
Enjoy a weekend of yoga in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. Ease your way from winter to spring and take a pause from the busy-ness of daily life to re-connect with yourself.
“having the weekend in the diary for some time before the event was nourishing...it was an investment in selfcare to look forward to. In a sense the experience started way before the Saturday and has continued to nourish afterwards!” AM, September, 2019
Practise yoga in a warm bright studio. Swim in the pool. Enjoy the therapeutic heat of the jacuzzi & steam rooms. Book a massage. Spend time with the yoga group. Curl up in the privacy of the cosy lounge with a book. Be energetic. Be still. Be in the moment. Simply be.
Cranage Hall is set in twenty acres of landscaped gardens, yet only an hour’s drive away from Manchester. The weekend runs from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon and costs £195pp based on two sharing a twin or double room.

“It was my first retreat and I was a bit nervous about going. However, I need not have been as you were so welcoming to all and it was a pleasure to be part of the weekend. It was good to be able to deepen my yoga practice and take stock of my own well-being. It was also lovely to be part of a like-minded group of people.” MH, September 2019
