If a whole Weekend Retreat isn’t possible for you, there are a variety of bespoke Day Retreats also available on select weekends throughout the year. These include Yoga Days as well as a range of Wellness Workshops. 

 

Even if you are just coming for the day to Green Farm, you will leave feeling refreshed, nourished, stress-free and ready for a new week ahead. 

 

As well as Yoga, you can enjoy a guided countryside walk, a wonderful ESPA Spa treatment as well as some delicious homemade food from our Green Farm Kitchen Garden and Farm – the menu designed by our in house chef and nutritional consultant. 

 

If you live in London, you can get to our Day Retreats very easily by train from London St Pancras International, and with prior arrangement we can meet you at the station. We suggest getting the 08.21 service which gets into Ashford International at 9.15am. Please let us know if you would like this when booking.

Forest Bathing Day Retreat

For our Forest Bathing Day Retreat, lead by Vanessa Nourse, we invite you to experience our beautiful and tranquil woodlands and grounds with a Shinrin Yoku 'Forest Bathing' Workshop. Shinrin in Japanese means 'forest,' and yoku means 'bath,' so together shinrin-yoku means bathing in the forest's atmosphere, or taking in the forest through our senses.

 

Join us for an uplifting Day Retreat to reawaken your body and invigorate your mind. A great way to kick start good intentions and leave you feeling ready for the week ahead. 

 

Forest Bathing is simply about experiencing nature with all five of your senses and letting yourself be totally immersed in your environment. Using in-nature exercises and activities as you slowly and mindfully walk through the ancient woodlands surrounding Green Farm, helping you reconnect with nature and find relief from everyday stresses and access all the health benefits that nature can provide.
