The Pakefield Retreat Centre is a peaceful cottage in a quiet seaside location on England’s east coast where you can walk on the nearby beaches, relax, practice yoga, take time to reflect and journal. We offer comfortable shared rooms and vegetarian meals.

The retreat centre was established in 2003 to offer workshops, retreats and satsangs in the Yasodhara Yoga tradition. We offer weekend and five-day retreats with foundational teachings from Swami Sivananada Radha ¬– Kundalini Yoga, the Divine Light Invocation, Dream Yoga, Mantra Yoga and Hidden Language Hatha Yoga. Our signature workshops give yoga students and teachers an opportunity to enter deeply into their own process.
