About the weekend
Come and enjoy a weekend of Yoga at the Purelands retreat centre set within the grounds of Kagyu Samey Ling, the first Tibetan centre to be set up in Europe in 1967. The weekend will be an opportunity to detach from the routine of everyday life, enjoy great food, company and absorb yourself in the joy of Yoga practice.

There will be some free time Saturday afternoon to go for a relaxing walk by the river or around the grounds, browse around the shop or simply sit quietly in one of the main shrine rooms. The retreat centre is a very peaceful environment to support your practice and the practice room overlooks the countryside and has under floor heating.

After supper on Friday there is a light evening practice, 3 sesssions on Saturday comprising of morning, late afternoon and evening. On Sunday there is the morning practice again and finally early afternoon to finish at 3.00. The practice is varied comprising of posture, breathwork/Pranayama, meditation, guided relaxtion and inner journey work. Around the Purelands practice there is also the option to attend early morning prayeres at the main centre from 6.00-7.00 or silent meditation from 8.00 – 9.00.
