Retreat Days


  • Temporarily suspended due to Coronavirus


Starting at 10am – the cost for the day will be £45 per person (including lunch).

Our Retreat Days start at 10am and finish between 4:30pm and 5pm. The day will include many activities focusing on bringing about balance and harmony to mind, body and spirit. Only when we achieve complete harmony between mind, body and spirit do we function correctly and make progress on our physical journey.

Throughout the day we will practice different forms of Meditation, Tai Chi Qigong, Yoga and Sound Therapy. These will include:

  • Group meditations & energy work
  • Connecting with your higher self through the meditation
  • Sound Bath
  • Peace meditations
  • Expanding your Aura for Spiritual Development
  • Yoga sessions
  • The power of positive thought
  • Tai Chi Qigong
  • A session of Voice, Breath and Gentle Movements to promote relaxation and wellbeing
  • Tuning into the needs of your body
  • Using your voice to balance and enhance your energy system.

  • Leave the rest of your day free from commitments
  • Do not rush to get here
  • Have an open mind about any new experiences
  • If you have concerns about any of the days activities – call and discuss before the day, so that you are able to totally relax and enjoy your time at Banyan Retreat
  • Do not drink alcohol on the previous day
  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after your visit

We serve a light lunch of Quiche (mostly vegetarian) and Salad followed by Desert or Fruit. We are unable to cater for specific dietary requirements so please bring something with you if this is not suitable for you.

During the Sound Bath you are required to lie on your back on the floor, although we have some Yoga mats available, you are advised to bring with you a blanket or something padded (perhaps a sleeping bag) to ensure you are comfortable throughout this period. You may also want to bring a pillow or similar. The sound bath takes place in the afternoon and these items can be left in your car until lunch break.
