Summer Yoga Retreats in the Kaszuby Region of Northern Poland
4th– 9th June 2017
11th– 16th June 2017
Our home for these special 5 night retreats is Folwark Jackowo, a charming and unique farm located on the Kashubian coast.
The Kaszuby region is naturally rich in forests, rivers and lakes which gives us an ideal location for optional extra activities such as hiking, cycling or kayaking.
A 15 minute leisurely cycle through the calming forest takes us to the nearby quiet and idyllic beaches
Situated on a farm of approx 1500 hectares, Folwark Jackowo offers comfortable modern bedrooms in the renovated farm houses. Each bedroom is uniquely decorated and all guests have access to characteristic and homely common areas. There is also a sauna available for guests use.
A certified organic farm, the surrounding land is used to grow corn and rapeseed. It is is home to horses, chickens, cats, dogs and, if you are lucky enough to meet, a wise owl!
We will have a dedicated meditation & yoga room and weather permitting, will hold some classes in the open air, overlooking the forest.
Check in on Sunday will begin from 2pm onwards. The retreat finishes after brunch on Friday.
A sample of a typical full day is shown below
Thursday will be largely a free day with yoga in the morning and an optional group activity such as a kayaking trip including a visit to the lighthouse to take in breathtaking views. This will be included in your package at no extra cost.
Onsite holistic therapies such as massage and custom natural facials will be available to book throughout the retreat at additional cost. These treatments are very affordable and cost approximately €30 for 60 mins. A wonderful way to deepen your relaxation during the week!

Day Trip & Excursion

There will be an optional trip organised for the group.
The trip is designed uniquely based on the individuals attending and their preferences.
Typically we will include a visit to the local lighthouse built in 1904 which provides stunning views of the coastline, sand dunes and forest. From here we will have the option to partake in kayaking along lake Sarbsko, finishing the trip at the popular beach town, Łeba.
The cost of this excursion is included in your retreat package.
The retreat price is based on shared bedrooms.
A number of rooms will be available for single occupancy which will incur an single supplement charge of €200
The retreat environment is one of community with a friendly group atmosphere so guests who are joining by themselves should not feel apprehensive.
There will also be ample opportunity for individual time, private walks, silence etc so those who are coming for self reflection will not be disappointed.
Daily classes will be taught to suit all levels and physical abilities therefore no experience is needed in yoga or meditation for you to join the retreat. Each retreats classes are individually tailored to the group attending.
Claire’s teaching style aims to make yoga attainable for everybody so whether you are completely new to yoga, have an existing injury or are a seasoned yogi you should find the retreat interesting, rewarding and hopefully take home some new perspectives with you.
