Escape to the peace and tranquility of this very special historic 17th Century Manor for a wonderfully rejuvenating and replenishing early Spring yoga weekend in the UK with Jeff Phenix.   This beautiful, luxurious venue offers a peaceful, rural setting perfect to deepen your understanding of yoga and meditation, nurture your body with fresh and delicious vegetarian food, enjoy gorgeous country walks and indulge yourself with a massage.  
By taking time out of your everyday life you can leave feeling recharged, reconnected and able to interact with the world in a more balanced and loving way. 



The Venue

This is a private, intimate and exceptionally beautiful venue, set in 50 acres of beautiful gardens, less than one hour north of London.  Its magic is held in its gardens, its history which dates back to the Knights Templar and the lovingly restored interiors which make this 17th-century manor house a truly wonderful space for a retreat. 
Part of what makes Tofte manor so special is that it is still a family home which adds to its unique atmosphere of privacy and comfort.  It has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, fire pit,  grass labyrinth, and its own delicious water.


The Yoga 
Over the course of this yoga weekend Jeff will guide you through 4 meditation sessions and 4 yoga practices.
The  morning yoga practices will be a dynamic, creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice and will also include meditation and pranayama.  By emphasizing the breath, mindfulness & skillful action and building up through a range of appropriate options – students, from the less experienced to the more advanced, will discover how to work peacefully at the level appropriate to them.
The afternoon yoga 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 totally bliss you out!

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 & meditation will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally.




Things to do 

Between yoga sessions and mealtimes, you are free to do as you wish.   There is time to relax with a book in one of the comfortable lounges,  chat with new friends, enjoy the lovely grounds,  take a walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside or if you prefer just find time be to be on your own and relax.
There will also be a therapist offering massages and other treatments so you can treat yourself if you wish. Tofte Manor also has its own labyrinth, the grounds are anchored with beautiful crystals which create a unique energy and space perfect for peaceful reflection and quiet time.


The manor has beautifully decorated grand bedrooms with their own fireplaces and sumptuous beds.  The manor bedrooms share beautiful bathrooms with both big baths and  showers between 2 or 3 bedrooms.

The manor has a large and comfortable drawing room and a welcoming study with huge sofas, as well as a cozy library offering quiet reading spots for the use of all guests. 

The stable yard has 4 tastefully renovated cottages set around a courtyard leading to a secret landscaped garden. Most of these rooms are ensuite.

All of the rooms at Tofte are of a very high standard.


You will be served three nutritious meals a day, cooked lovingly by our retreat chef. The food will be delicious, healthy and vegetarian with gluten-free and dairy-free options. We are lucky to have Marc from Love Munches catering for us for the weekend.

Tofte Manor bottles its own water that runs through the labyrinth pathway which makes it is delicious, pure and vital, energised potent water.  It tastes delicious and is worlds away from our regular tap water.



What my students say

"I had such a great time and as a new Mum - the best night’s sleep in literally 2 years...!!! Jeff’s classes were challenging but so fun, engaging and original! It was fabulous taking some time for myself for some much needed self-growth and repair.   The whole weekend was perfectly organised and Tofte Manor was a dream setting."


“Coming from German, this was my first yoga weekend in the UK and I have a feeling it set the bar high! The venue was a charming mansion in the middle of lovely English countryside. Jeff is an excellent, charismatic yoga teacher with a humorous yet very professional approach. We practiced yoga in a spacious, bright former chapel, it was a fun mixed group  and completed last but not least by very delicious homemade vegetarian food and superb organisation!"


"The Tofte Manor Retreat was amazing - it's such a beautiful house! I have so much more energy and am stronger and straighter now. The yoga was a delight -  Jeff is lovely to be taught by - positive, encouraging and kind, playful and funny, totally inspiring. Uplifting. Wise.  I also found the meditations to be a bit of a revelation. It was like finally being able to swim after years of lessons."
