Woodland Yoga & Wellness

Woodland Wellness & Yoga

Yoga, forest bathing, wild camping, for private events or join in our groups.

The wellness woods is a magically assembled area, nestled in the far corner of Southover Woods;  A private woodland and wild camping site entangled with rhododendron and pine trees. This bespoke corner of the woods has been carefully created to facilitate a variety of gatherings that fall under the umbrella of ‘Holistic and Alternative Wellness’. 

On arrival, take a short walk from the car park to a signed opening in the trees. Walking up the natural paths edged by the woodland and its diverse colours, you are greeted by a fresh and open area.

A canopy of mixed trees lets in dappled light onto a shelter, under which a fire pit and seating can be utilized for wellness sessions. The fire pit is cuddled by log walls giving you extra privacy and shelter from weather.

A collection of moss, fungi and deadwood form a truly magical setting. Our rope swing has been hung from the trees, overlooking the site to provide a relaxing swinging therapy open to all users. This clearing branches off to the Emperor bell tent and candle chandelier, a cosy and aesthetic sanctuary.

Facilities

The Fire Pit area is a log built, raised fire pit in a circular clearing with log walls surrounding. The fire pit has two access points, one leading to a hill slope clearing for extra seating and the other to the ‘Sanctuary Bell’. The fire pit is covered by a parachute canopy for protection from the rain and the trees provide shelter from the wind.

The fire pit is raised and overlooks a clearing that can be used for communal gathering/ picnic type space and tree hung rope swing for added relaxation.

Our ‘Sanctuary Bell’ is a majestic Emperor Bell tent (6x4m) that accommodates 6-10 people sleeping and 15-20 people sitting. The optional emperor ‘inner tent’ creates one or two compartments for a sleeping area or tidy storage. The ‘inner tent’ can comfortably fit a double air bed and can be removed for larger groups if necessary.

A woodland sweat lodge and cold bucket shower are currently under construction and will be available with this site soon. Please email to inquire if this is of interest to you.
