TIME AND SPACE
The greatest gift you can give yourself
AND FINDING THE PEACE WITHIN YOURSELF IS THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE THE WORLD

Our lives are so full of noise and distractions; we are so busy that there is not enough time to get to know ourselves – instead we rush around with our minds on autopilot for most, if not all, of our lives. Our silent retreats allow you the opportunity to step back from life, to make the time and space for yourself so that you develop a better understanding of who you really are. Leaving you refreshed and reset to face the everyday once more.

A simple, grounded and inspiring approach to self-discovery.

Below is a short film with Roz, which will give you an overview of what we are offering here at Gayles.

The first step to Yoga

Developing a spiritual practice can often begin with the physical postures of 'Asana'. Although important, this is just the beginning of the journey. Developing self awareness 'Svadhyaya' which comes from stepping back from life and making time and space for oneself, is an essential element on the path to Yoga.

From plant to plate

We provide homemade meals that are largely sourced from our own lovingly-tended organic gardens so the food is as fresh and natural as possible and has a virtually zero carbon footprint. We value simplicity and generosity and, in short, we prepare and serve the food with respect and care using the best ingredients that we can. All our food is vegetarian and we can offer alternatives to dairy and wheat products.
