THE VENUE – The Commonwork Centre and Bore Place House are set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, close to Sevenoaks in Kent. Bore Place House is an old Tudor manor house with Jacobean and Victorian extensions. There is a large comfortable sitting room with an open fire for those chillier autumn and winter weekends. It is surrounded by an ancient walled garden with a beautiful lily pond, and the working organic dairy farm, pottery and brickworks that make up Commonwork Farm. This special and unspoilt environment makes for a very relaxed weekend with a great sense of freedom. There is wonderful walking amongst the thousands of acres of surrounding countryside.

  1. Just had to say a BIG thankuou for a wonderful weekend. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Margherita, your words and encouragement were inspirational. You have been a real tonic to me. Your yoga practice encourages everyone. I intend to attend another retreat when possible…no hesitations in recommending Margherita’s retreat to everyone……June

  2. I truly did “blossom” on this retreat. A wonderful group of people, healing food, beautiful surroundings, lovely accommodation, soothing massage, and a perfectly balanced schedule – the right amount of classes to challenge and provoke thought, balanced with the right amount of free time to explore, refresh and reflect. Margherita teaches from the heart with humour, love and intelligence. I was made to feel special and cared for. Lots of love xx
