THE WELLNESS SERIES – Vinyasa and Meditation Retreat

To celebrate the opening of our brand new Summer House – the Gallivant’s very own 80sq m yoga and wellness studio – we are teaming up with London yoga studio Union Station, to bring you a fun and diverse schedule of wellness and yoga retreats to warm the body as we approach the summer months.

Next Retreat:
Sunday 19th to Tuesday 21st April, Vinyasa Flow and Meditation with Zara Miranda (Union Station).

Day 1 – Sunday 19th:
You will arrive and check-in to one of our rooms before 4pm, with herbal tea, detox tonic and a healthy slide of cake waiting for you in our snug or in front of our fire. We will then be serving an early sharing plate dinner, where you will get the chance to speak with your teacher Zara, and meet some of your fellow yogis. There will be plenty of time to change after dinner, so that you are ready for your first class in our Summer House.

Day 2 – Monday 20th:
Rise and shine to the best possible start to your day with a Vinyasa Flow class, followed by a super nutritious and immune boosting smoothie and breakfast plate. There will be another optional class for those who continue to feel energised, before a spring-inspired buffet lunch, detox tonic and plenty of water!

We want our guests to make the most of their time in our local surroundings, so you will be given an open afternoon to explore our beautiful coastline or neighbouring medieval town Rye. Upon your return, we will be taking you on a mindful walk on the beach to coincide with the sun setting. You will be served an A La Carte dinner that evening.

Day 3 – Tuesday 21st:
As the sun continues to rise, you will be invited to join another morning yoga class, before having your smoothie and healthy breakfast in our dining room. You will then have the chance to say goodbye to new friends, and ask Zara any more of your burning mediation questions before heading back to the real world! Please book in advance if you wish to stay with us a little longer for some lunch or dinner that evening or some time in the near future.

About Union Station London:
Union Station’s mission is to create a space for yogis to slow down from the fast-pasted nature of our lives and encourage us to take time to connect to ourselves and our community. Their teachers have been carefully chosen and have their unique backgrounds, experience and styles. Founder, Paula Dao Gray, who has worked in the yoga and wellness industry for more than a decade, launched Union Station to share her love for the practice to the many Londoners who do not take the time to connect back to themselves.
