Autumn Yoga Weekend in Oxfordshire

2 - 4 October 2020 
From £495
Join Jeff Phenix at the stunning Poundon House, Oxfordshire for a wonderful yoga weekend in the UK.   Wrapped in the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside, this UK yoga weekend provides the perfect opportunity to rest and recharge. Take this opportunity to immerse yourself in a full schedule and spectrum of yoga and practices, eat delicious, healthy vegetarian food, and return home feeling refreshed and restored. 

The Venue

Poundon house is stunning and spacious; set within six acres of landscaped gardens on the edge of the Oxfordshire-Buckinghamshire border. This Queen Anne style  House offers a luxury escape in the peace and tranquility of the countryside, with the bonus of being within easy reach of London, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, the Cotswolds and Bristol.
Once you arrive at Poundon House, you will feel immediately at home. Whether it is settling down in front of a roaring open fire, taking a long bath in one of the unique bathrooms or going for a quiet walk in the apple orchard, for over a century Poundon has been the perfect place to escape the bustle of city life.

The Yoga

Over the course of the weekend there will be four meditation sessions and four yoga sessions.  
The morning yoga practices will be be a dynamic, creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice and will include meditation and pranayama.The afternoon sessions will be a mellower, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as yin yoga, restoratives, pranayama, chakras, yoga nidra and meditation.  This will be a deeply nourishing and blissful practise.

Jeff has lots of experience teaching students of all levels. His depth of understanding, playful approach, ability to challenge students to safely explore their edge and his love of pranayama and meditation will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally.



Things to do

In your free time between yoga sessions and mealtimes you have the opportunity to enjoy the grounds and surrounding countryside as there are lots of walking opportunities. There are lovely characterful bathrooms just inviting you to take a long soak, massages are available and there is a lovely, comfy lounge where you can curl up by the open fire with a book and a cup of tea. 


There are ten unique and beautifully restored bedrooms, two singles and the rest double/twins or triples.  The house has retained all of its original features so all bedrooms are without en-suites.  They all have their own style and are spacious with a luxurious feel but also comfortable and very relaxing.


You will be treated to a healthy feast of delicious, home cooked vegetarian food, lovingly prepared by our talented chef Marc from Fork & Bindi, which will nourish your body and your soul.  

The menu is naturally light on dairy and  non dairy milk is provided as standard with breakfast and hot drinks.  If you have any specific alleriges or dietary intollerances  these can be caterered for at an additional cost of £10 a day due to the cost of extra ingredients and time to make extra dishes.



What my students say

"Thanks so much for such a great UK yoga weekend. It was just what I needed. I have felt very clear-headed and a lot calmer since. I loved all the meditation and the asana practice too. I feel so much better physically and mentally from the weekend’s practices. Plus amazing food and a group of people. I loved it".
