 Ragmans Lane Farm is nestled in the Wye Valley on the edge of the Forest of Dean, in an area of oustanding natural beauty. It is a place to escape the pace of modern life, to sit with friends around the fire or next to the wood fired stove and enjoy the simple pleasures, beauty and peace of the natural world.

This weekend will help provide us with the support we sometimes need for the winter times - surrdounded by the colours of the autumnal farm and the warmth of the fires. The retreat allows for you to focus on your yoga practise but also yourself and your needs : time for walks, reading, contemplating in the beautiful surroundings of the farm. With the added extras of  fires, hot tub and cake this weekend allows you to explore the change in the season. The yoga will be focusing much more on slowing down with some softer more restorative classes but also some stronger classes to build strength in mind and body. The combination of classes can really help develop your practise - teaching us how to switch on and off our muscles and minds!


There will be upto 10 hours of yoga over the weekend, classes will be mixed level. Classes will vary from purely restorative to help aid deep relaxation and connection with releasing the muscles ranging to slightly fast pace classes with a much more ashtanga, flowing pace to it and slower more focussed trained eye on smoe specific poses. No class is mandatory so if you want to leave class a bit early or skip one to have a massage then feel free, this weekend is for you after all.  



The lovely Eve Vergano, Bread and Roses, will be feeding us with organic, vegetarian delights throughout the weekend. Fruit and veg supplied by Briggs Farm, Ragmans Lane Farm and dairy from Five Pennies. Please let us know about any dietary requirement when booking.

The People

Sophie – has been teaching for over 7 years now, building on from her training as a massage therapist aswell as her own practise informing the classes. She teachers hatha, combined with some flow from her new focus in higher energy classes like vinyasa. Alongside this her thirst for anatomy, the body and it's functionality and support feeds into classes.

Eve - Beautifully presented, equally delicious food made from locally sourced organic fruit and veg, above and beyond your average veggie food.
