Heart-Opening practices, Breathwork, Fire & Ice: ancient tools for inner exploration. 

Starting in The Pump House, you will be surrounded by warmth and candles whilst Katherine guides you in to a world of breath work to truly allow you to relax and focus. 

We will begin our evening with a refreshing drink aligned to your wellness goals, after which you will be guided through a breathwork practice for inner exploration, connection with self and nature.

Then you will be calmly walked over to The Winchester Garden Spa where you will sit in the nature filled relaxation area and then enter the woodfired woodland sauna with its roaring flames.

Then when the moment is right you will be encouraged to submerge yourself into the water and ice filled dipping pool. You'll then be guided through the Wim Hoff 'horse stance' method of warming the body safely and effectively, from where there will be opportunity to reenter the sauna to warm yourself once again.

Then when the garden spa time ends you will be led back to the warmth and cosy vibes of The Pump House to be able to immerse in candlelight, relax with a yogi tea whilst mingling with the fellow participants.

Perfect way to end the perfect evening.
