Yoga Retreat Dorset, Scaravelli Inspired Yoga, YOAS, Yoga on a Shoestring

Treat Yourself To A Perfect Yoga Retreat

Bonhays is a beautiful eco-retreat centre, nestled in the hills of West Dorset, between Bridport and Lyme Regis and just two miles from the sea. The setting is secluded and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Set around a central courtyard with the soft curves of the straw buildings and the hills beyond, there is quiet and stillness here. Bonhays has lovely communal areas to relax and chat in as well as many peaceful and secluded spots for quiet and reflection. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool.

The coast and beaches are just two miles away if you want to get a dose of sea air and enjoy a beach walk or you may simply want to enjoy a peaceful moment on the decking and watch the sunset, swim peacefully in the pool, share wonderful meals in the conservatory, practice yoga and meditation; be and rejuvenate.

The ultimate Dorset yoga weekend retreat experience.


Single, shared twin or double rooms are available. Bathrooms, shower and toilet facilities are shared.

There is also a charming shepherd's hut set in a quiet corner looking up the Marshwood Valley and a magical little house tucked away in the woods. The hut and the little house both have a double bed, electricity, a wood burner and are fully insulated. The hut has an outside tap and access to shared bathroom facilities close by. The little house also has a small kitchen area and its own shower and toilet.

Camping with your own tent or camper van is also an option.

Treat yourself to some Dorset yoga.

Sample Dorset Yoga Retreat Schedule

A wonderful opportunity for you to relax your mind, rejuvenate your body and reawaken your spirit in the peaceful countryside in Dorset. You will enjoy these Dorset yoga classes which focus on movement, breath and relaxation

There will be a yoga class with Catherine on Tuesday evening at 5pm and yoga nidra after dinner. On the following days there will be two yoga classes, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon, which will include meditation and breathwork. There will also be plenty of time to walk, rest, relax or take a dip in the pool or even the sea.

As you develop a stronger connection of your alignment and movement patterns, you will gradually release and unwind, letting go of long held tensions.
