The Quaives – Wickhambreaux
6th–8th September 2024

"What it will do is transform your mind and body for the long-term, and reconnect you to that most fundamental part of who you are."
– Elle UK

Join somatic movement practitioner Nahid de Belgeonne, Founder of The Human Method™,
for SOOTHE; a weekend of profound learning and personal
development that will self-regulate nervous systems and have guests departing in a calm and collected state after just 48 hours.

The Human Method is a powerful practice of brain-body re-education, breathwork, anatomy in movement, somatic yoga flow, and deep rest.

You will enjoy carefully designed practices to help you let go of unhelpful patterns in the body and mind and lay down new possibilities for movement and for your life.

The Human Method has helped many people reduce their stress and anxiety, sleep better, function at their optimum, and stay emotionally resilient in an ever-changing environment.

You'll enjoy over 11 hours of teaching including: 

•  Energy shifting practices in the morning to lengthen, strengthen and mobilise
•  De-stressing practises in the evening to unravel, unwind and reorganise
•  Deep sleep practises before bedtime

The Quaives is a wellness retreat with a purpose-built, light-filled, underfloor heated yoga studio, set in beautiful 19-acre grounds where you will enjoy deep care with Somatic movement practises. In your free time you can explore the grounds and find the luxury outdoor wood-fired hot tub for some starlit dips, play a spot of tennis on the tennis courts, or go on a countryside walk.

You have 19 acres of The Quaives to inhabit. This includes a selection of beautifully manicured secret gardens and tree-lined fields with an array of flowers, plants and trees, a large pond full of fish and frogs with small waterfalls at both ends – the perfect environment for self-discovery, profound learning and deep practise.
The accommodation ranges from singles or doubles with ensuite. There is also a Scandi-style women's dormitory for up to six people with shared bathrooms.

“I’ve designed this retreat as a direct response to the rising numbers of people I am seeing in my clinic dealing with burnout, heightened anxiety, relentless stress, and sleep issues,” explains de Belgeonne. “They need an antidote to our modern hypervigilant world and my programme is about soothing the put-upon nervous system and building resilience for when times are tough. Guests will leave this weekend with the power and resources to live with more joy in the long term.”

You can come choose to come alone or book a shared room with a friend or partner. The rooms vary from rooms in the house with ensuite and shared bathrooms and ensuite cottages.

On-site ensuite rooms shared basis for £795 pp or £1195 for single occupancy.

Off-site ensuite rooms for £1195 pp.

To book, please pay a 50% deposit, with the balance payable on the 3rd May 2024. If the venue has to close due to COVID restrictions, the retreat will be rescheduled, and your fee will be carried over to a new date.
