Summer Yoga Retreat 2021
The Quaives, Canterbury.

02-04 Jul 2021
The Quaives, Seaton, Canterbury CT3 1RU


Join us at the stunning and peaceful location of The Quaives, for a rejuvenating summer weekend retreat. We will be hosting a varied programme of yoga classes, meditation and relaxation practice, along with informal workshops and plenty of time to wind down and enjoy the surroundings.

Hosted by experienced practitioners Charlie Griffin and Hannah Lee Weller, the yoga classes are grounded in Hatha and Vinyasa styles, and suitable for all levels. Our approach is inclusive and encouraging, allowing time for personal adjustments, and opportunities to explore poses, develop your confidence and really deepen your practice.

With a wood fired hot tub in the stunning grounds, tennis court, firepit, chef-prepared vegan food and beautiful country walks on the doorstep, this is a great opportunity to get away from it all and revive your mind and body.

Om Retreats is a non-profit organisation. All proceeds from our retreats allow us to deliver our programme of outreach yoga, for vulnerable and charity groups.


The Quaives is a hidden gem, surrounded by the peaceful countryside of East Kent - it is a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The property is nestled in 19 acre grounds, with beautifully manicured gardens and open fields beyond. There are lots of beautiful walks, and neighbouring picturesque villages with traditional Kent Oast houses and mills. The estate has some interesting history; being previously owned by Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac for 25 years.

The practice space is an incredible, light and spacious studio, converted from an original barn, with underfloor heating and floor to ceiling windows.

In the garden you will find a wood fired outdoor hot tub and outdoor shower, looking out over the gardens into open fields beyond. Perfect for relaxing, enjoying the peaceful surroundings, or some nighttime stargazing.
