Blossom into your potential
The Quaives, Kent, UK.
Friday 28th February - Sunday 1st March 2020
Hosted by myself & Maria Usai this will be an uplifting & expansive weekend away in the beautiful English countryside. So much more than a yoga retreat, this weekend will restore & revitalise you as we step into Spring.
As we move into the new season we focus on returning to the light & the fullest expression of ourselves in the world. Through this retreat and the practises on offer we will create awareness of, & freedom from, our self-imposed limitations & open ourselves up to our greatest potential. We want to cultivate a life that allows us to stand in our power, connect to our deepest desires & bring that vision forth into reality.
Set in beautiful surroundings just outside London, you’ll be treated to a variety of yoga classes, locally sourced organic meals, energy clearing sound baths and more. In your free time you can explore the grounds, take a walk through the beautiful countryside, receive private treatments or simply allow yourself to rest.
With a strong emphasis on stepping away from the routine & creating the space to envision something greater, over the weekend you can expect:…..
- Luxurious surroundings
- Twice daily yoga practises
- Space and time to process.
- Guided meditations and sound baths to release blocks
- Expansive mindset work
- Nourishing organic vegetarian meals (allergies & a vegan diet can be catered for) View Sample Menu
- Nurturing community
If you feel called to take back control of your life, and move toward a more aligned & empowered existence this weekend is for you.
The retreat will give you the possibility to experience various forms of yoga and healing ranging from more dynamic morning practises through to restorative guided meditations. The classes will be accessible to everyone with enough options available to meet you wherever you are in your practise.
In our daily workshops you will dive deeper in to your own personal blossoming journey; we will explore meditation, journal writing, vision boarding and manifestation masterclasses. You will experience sound healing and sound baths where deep held emotions and stress are released from the physical body.
In your free time you can enjoy walks in the surrounding woodlands, additional treatments or simply the time to rest & sit by the log fire.

The Quaives retreat space is a hidden gem, surrounded by the peaceful countryside of East Kent, a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Everything is finished to a high standard & strikes the perfect balance between modern luxury & comfort. The purpose built studio features under floor heating & has all the equipment you will need for your practise.
During the retreat you have 19 acres to inhabit, this includes a selection of beautifully manicured secret gardens and tree-lined fields with an array of flowers, plants and trees, and a large pond full of fish and frogs with small waterfalls at both ends.
There are plenty of relaxation spots for you to take advantage of between sessions.
Beneath the pine trees in the far open field you have a Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub for up to 8 to relax in - enjoy the vast sky, treelines and surrounding countryside by day and stargazing at night - if you’re lucky you’ll see a shooting star or hear the lions roaring in the nearby Zoo.
In the middle of the grounds you have a tennis court with a pair of rackets and balls for anyone who’s up for a game!
From The Quaives, there are lots of beautiful walks to go on through neighbouring picturesque villages with traditional Kent coast houses and mills.
Maria Lodetoft Usai
I invite you to a practice with focus on self love. My playful yet relaxing classes guides you out of the head and in to the heart. I am a spiritual gangster who mixes the urban and spiritual into a modern blend of modern magic with super powers of manifestations.
I will be guided you in our restorative and yin yoga sessions, I will also be hosting our sound baths and the manifestation masterclass.
I am a certified reiki practitioner and sound healer, and I happily work one to one during your time at the retreat with your specific goals and dreams.
If you wish to book a private energy healing (reiki) or sound bath session please get in touch directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I believe a yoga practise is a means to discovering who we are, not who we feel we should be.
I’m passionate about sharing the many benefits of yoga & how they can be used to transform your life as a whole, beyond the mat. I teach uplifting yet challenging styles of yoga & encourage you to explore the practise with playful creativity. Together we'll push to the edge of what you thought possible, sometimes falling and sometimes flying but always with a smile!
I will be leading the morning dynamic practises & also guiding you through Yin yoga & other activities.
