Burncoose Retreats

Nature & Nurture Wellness & Yoga Retreat At Burncoose House With Mind Body & Soil and Jenny Ella Yoga

Tucked away in a valley, surrounded by open countryside, Burncoose House allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life and immerse yourself in all things healthy and peaceful.

Once you step through the doors of this gorgeous 7 double bedroom residence, you enter another world. Burncoose House is set in 30 acres of mature woodland garden offering privacy and tranquility. The décor reflects the Georgian heritage of the house with all the modern touches you could wish for, this all feels delightfully welcoming and instantly calming.

Our Nature & Nurture retreat offers daily Yoga practice, optional ‘Meditation for Beginners’, complimented with healthy and delicious meals prepared for you every day, and plenty of time to relax however you choose, whether that’s curling up in a comfy armchair to read, or walking in the Burncoose gardens, perhaps foraging for wild herbs and plants with Matt from Cornish Wild Food.  HomeSpa Cornwall also offer a range of in-house treatments if you fancy a pamper or why not take off to explore the beautiful Cornish coast.

Burncoose is a place to relax, eat healthily, and restore balance to body, heart and mind. Come join us!

Jenny Ella Yoga

Your Yoga Teacher: Jenny Ella

Join me at Burncoose House, Cornwall for a wonderfully relaxing residential yoga retreat.

Relax, unwind, and reset your system with daily yoga classes and meditation. Boost your health, energy and wellbeing and come away feeling refreshed and restored.

The yoga is held under canvas on the lawn so you can practise whilst fully connecting with nature, and beyond that, you can do as much or as little as you like. There are early morning and late afternoon yoga classes with plenty of free time in between. There is also the option to join an afternoon ‘Meditation for Beginners’ course also offered by Jenny Ella (2 x 60 min classes) as part of your stay.

For me, inhaling and exhaling my way through a Strala flow yoga sequence is one of the most joyful, rebalancing things I know of (next to walking on the beach, dancing like a banshee, and spending Sunday morning in bed). My passion for yoga shines through my teaching because I love to share with others what I feel on the mat myself: strength, suppleness and radiant health, along with a clear, calm mind and a happy heart. OK, I may have the occasional off day or two but the overall effect is profoundly joyous and peaceful.

I have been teaching movement classes for over fifteen years. Initially as a Pilates teacher and today, as both a yoga and Pilates teacher. I have previously taught at a number of high-profile London studios including Triyoga, Primrose Hill, The Chelsea Harbour Club and the Westminster Physiotherapy Centre. I qualified as a yoga teacher with one of yoga’s most respected Vinyasa Flow teachers, Mercedes Ngoh (Trigoya, London) taking her Vinyasa Flow Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training course. I have also qualified as an advanced 500-hr guide with Strala Yoga, training in Amsterdam, New York and Berlin with Strala founders Tara Stiles and Mike Taylor. I have also studied privately with renowned Hatha yoga teacher, Gary Carter, and with many more amazing yoga teachers in London, New York, LA, Miami and Costa Rica.

Today, I teach both in person and online, guiding classes from Cornwall, UK.

I was also former Vice Chairman of the Pilates Foundation and am the author of the Pilates Difference (Hamlyn Books) published internationally and translated in over 6 different languages.
