Yoga at the Yurts: glamping with extra relaxation

Yoga at the yurts

Rest and recuperation at its best with private yoga at the yurts.

We have worked with the lovely Sue Wood since we opened our yurt doors in 2017. Sue has run incredible yoga retreats and private yoga sessions at Country Bumpkin Yurts for many of our wonderful guests. Would you like to enjoy yoga at the yurts during your staycation? Read on to find out more about Sue, her approach to yoga, and how to book a yoga session at the yurts.

Yoga class hen party ideas

Meet Sue

Sue is a local Yogi who has been teaching vinyasa flow, pregnancy yoga, and slow flow yoga for about 8 years. More recently, Sue has undertaken Teen yoga training. She is at her absolute happiest teaching with grass under her mat and blue skies above in the local park, in her garden, or further afield at UK festivals and more local retreats. Sue loves the sense of freedom and self-confidence found through teaching yoga and she can’t wait to share her practice with you.

When available, Sue can join your group at the yurts and lead you through a yoga session outside on the grass or under the gazebo. Groups can be up to 16 people. You can expect to move through different dynamic sequences, to both listen to and challenge your body and enjoy the calm and release from the everyday. If the weather is due to be bad, the local village hall can be booked for the yoga session at an additional cost.

The yoga session can be tailored to your group. I believe some of our glamping hen parties have enjoyedYurt Booking 80’s style yoga with the leg warmers and matching music playlist!

NEW FOR 2023

This year, Sue is offering new experiences along with her yoga sessions.

Yin Yoga with Reiki Healing 

Sue is joined by Jane to offer Yin Yoga with Reiki healing.

“Jane and I ran this practice together last October and it literally felt like magic happening.”

This is a slower-paced, deep stretching session that will leave you relaxed. 

Yin yoga with Sound Therapy 

For this, Sue is joined by Carrie who will tailor the sounds to different elements, meridians, and Chakras as you move through a yin practice in sync with the sounds. 

Craft your own yoga retreat

This year you can craft your own yoga retreat with a group of family or friends. We have therapists on hand to help you create a unique and personalised yoga retreat for you and your group. We can offer different styles of yoga with the option of combining yoga with Sound therapy and Reiki. We can organise a pamper evening and massage treatments during your stay so you leave feeling re- yurtivised!

Options to run family yoga retreats, yoga retreats with on site child care (coming soon – ask us for more info) or mother and daughter retreats. Please get in touch today to start planning your stay. 

Costs per head for different sessions:

Uplifting and energising yoga to music £10 pp

Yin yoga (slow, relaxing floor-based poses) £10 pp

Yin yoga with additional therapy:

To add either hands-on Reiki treatment or a sound bath to accompany the yin class costs £20.

An individual 30 min massage or Reiki treatment costs £25, or for 1-hour it costs £45. 

We can also arrange a Neal’s Yard pamper party where either one of your group can receive a facial or you can all learn face massage techniques. 

Please note, prices may vary slightly when sessions are bespoke.
