YOGA RETREATS

Why Yoga retreats? Yoga is beneficial for everyone across all levels of fitness. Yoga retreats are suitable for those who have not tried yoga before. Also challenging for those more familiar with a regular Yoga practice.

The yoga session combines five traditional Yoga elements: Meditation, Breathing, Posture, Relaxation, and Philosophy.

Yoga develops flexibility and strength. While the breathing delivers oxygen to the cells, it also helps keep the nervous 
system calm and balanced. 
Relaxation and meditation
 techniques are essential to learn how to effectively manage stress, while yoga 
Philosophy helps to put life in a balanced perspective. For development of body, mind and spirit come to one of our Yoga Retreats.

ABOUT THE FOOD

Out side there is a Famine soup pot found on the property, there from the harsh days when there was not enough food to go around. People from near and far would come to eat as the Bell was sounded.

Now a water feature in our pond, it represents the abundant times we now live in.

The food at Castle Hacket House is mainly based around Vegetarian diet. Many ingredients
are grown in our garden. Eggs are from our beautiful hens. Other ingredients are sourced
locally and organic where possible.

With 25 years of experience around the world as a Chef, with experience in many facets of cooking from French Classical to Raw Vegan, Joyce will ensure your meals are nutritious and delicious. Weekend and week long stays will include cooking Demonstrations.

If you have any special diet requirements, please let us know at time of booking.

ABOUT KNOFF YOGA

 Named after Master Teacher “Nicky Knoff “

Nicky studied yoga from 1970 to 1974 in Tokyo, Japan with Bikram Chaudhury (before he was famous and before ‘Hot Yoga’). When travelling on holiday from Japan, Nicky discovered Iyengar Yoga and started studying with many Iyengar teachers all over the world, one of them being Martyn Jackson in Sydney, Australia.

In 1989, Nicky went to Mysore, India to study with K. Pattabhi Jois, where she learned the first 3 Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. In 1991 she travelled to Maui, Hawaii to learn the 4th Series from Nancy Gilgoff

Nicky made many trips to Pune, India to study with B.K.S. Iyengar, Geeta and Prashant and in 1992 was certificated as a Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher.

Together with James Bryan, Nicky founded the Knoff yoga School.
