The quaives
august 8-12th 2021

Join us this summer at The Quaives, in the beautiful Kent countryside, for our first ever Y-oga Store retreat with Jeni England and Camille Bieber.

A retreat is the perfect opportunity to focus on your yoga practice away from the distractions and stresses of every day life. With 2 practices a day, plus the option to participate in workshops, whether you're a beginner or more experienced you will come away having learned something new and feeling stronger and more confident. 

Jeni will be hosting and taking care of cooking all your delicious, nutritious meals, and of course jumping in to teach some yoga classes! Camille will be lead teacher, overseeing your progression throughout the retreat. We will also have Rebekah Lawrence with us assisting so you will have 2 teachers in every class to give you guidance and adjustments.

Set in 19 acres of land, the stunning 17th century main house and 8 out buildings that make up The Quaives is the perfect place for a summer get away in the UK countryside.  With a dedicated yoga studio, filled with natural light, we couldn't hope for a better venue. The grounds include a selection of beautifully manicured secret gardens and tree-lined fields with an array of flowers, plants and trees, and a large pond full of fish and frogs with small waterfalls at both ends. There are plenty of relaxation spots, hammocks and sun loungers for you to take advantage of.

Retreat FAQs

2 classes a day sounds intense, what if I can't/don't want to do it all?

All classes are optional! We recommend you attend them all to get the most out of the retreat, but first and foremost this retreat is about you relaxing and feeling good so if you don't fancy it one day that is absolutely fine.

The morning classes will be 90mins and more dynamic, whereas the evening classes will be much more restorative and designed to release and counteract the work of the morning sessions. 

I'm a beginner/new to yoga, will I find it too hard?

All of the sessions on our retreat are open level and accessible to practitioners of all levels of experience! The immersive nature of a retreat makes it the perfect place to start your journey into yoga. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and break down poses or different aspects of the practice. We aim to be fully inclusive, absolutely everyone is welcome!

What style of yoga will we be practicing?

Between them Jeni & Camille are trained in Vinyasa, Rocket, Mandala, Yin and Bhakti yoga, so there will be a variety of styles on offer throughout the week.

How many people will be on the retreat?
Our maximum capacity is 16 guests.

Is equipment provided?

Yes, the studio at The Quaives is fully equipped with mats, blocks, straps, blankets etc. However you are welcome to bring your own mat or anything else that will make your practice feel more comfortable. 

I want to come but am nervous of sharing a room with someone I don't know...

In our experience, sharing a room on retreats can lead to life long friendships and is a wonderful way to meet like minded people you may normally have never crossed paths with! The fact that you are all booked onto a yoga retreat automatically gives you something in common with the other guests, and in such a family like environment you will be surprised at how quickly you bond with your fellow yogis.

Will there be any extra costs involved?

Travel to the venue is not included in the price, however we will set up a whatsapp group prior to the retreat so you may be able to organise travelling with others to cut costs.

The only other extra cost that you may find is if you choose to book a massage while on the retreat. The Quaives offers either 60 or 90min massages at a price of £70 or £110. We will need to book these in advance but will discuss with guests ahead of time who would like to book.
