HolycombeNorman castles, moats, stone circles and a sacred site before Roman occupancy – this retreat has all the ingredients of a novel – in fact Tolkien’s description of Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings was the inspiration behind the creation of this retreat. This unique place has also inspired us to host our Halloween writing and yoga weekend too! Set in six acres, Holycombe is built in the grounds of a Norman Castle, and has a water-filled moat, as well as being adjacent to a wildlife conservation area with deer, polecats and kingfishers.

WriteIntoYoga brings together a different perspective for a creative mind - something we all have the potential to have. By combining the two crafts of yoga and writing, it aims to prove just how powerful ‘true’ yoga can be.
The weekend is hosted by two unconventional yoga creators (one, a science-writer and the other a former prison officer) with original ideas - filling a gap in yoga in which writing, also needs to share the stage.
However, being relaxed is an important element in unleashing thought in whatever shape or form. This is why yoga is essential in helping people find their breath, and convert that breath into a written journey of discovery. It’s not to turn you into a writer (our retreats are open to anyone with a curiosity), but we will demonstrate that when our bodies are relaxed, then the imagination is fully open...and who knows where that can lead to! Find out on our weekend on the edge of the stunning Cotswolds, UK.
WriteIntoYoga aims to fuel the imagination and inspire writing in its purest form - through yoga and mindful meditation.
Kym Nelson - Writer & Yoga Teacher
I am a writer who also teaches the joy of yoga, and how to be more mindful - hence the creation of WriteIntoYoga retreats. Along with another fellow yoga teacher (a former prison officer!), we aim to demonstrate that when the mind and body is relaxed, then the brain is at its most effective in producing a plethora of creative ideas and inspirational thinking.
What to Expect
WriteIntoYoga retreats encompass creative and mindful writing (we show you how to do that!), story-telling and poetry alongside; various styles of yoga, mindfulness, hopi ear candling and much more. Prepare to be surprised by your own abilities, which yoga and mindfulness can bring out. It aims to be a mindful and physical treat for all the senses, in a fun and inspiring way!
