About this trip

Imagine coming home

to a wild & magical place.

To the cool water,

the whispering leaves

& the green grass shining in the sun.

Imagine the mighty oak,

the sacred place where

we come together again,

in conciseness,

singing in unison

under the stars, &Beyond.


& Beyond is an intimate gathering taking place in the wild landscape of Hardwick Estate in Oxfordshire, on the banks of the River Thames.


Kundalini Yoga morning practice and transformational workshops, gong baths, woodland walks, forest bathing, kirtan, sacred movement, chanting, poetry, singing, wild swimming, meditations with ancient oaks, love-infused plant-based Ayurvedic food. The experience of rest, rebalancing in a magical setting and deep remembrance of true self and beyond.. 


We will be eating fresh, organic, locally grown plant-based meals lovingly prepared according to Ayurvedic principles by Karen Buckland of Plant Based Pirate. Our gorgeous fruit and veg will come from Tollhurst Organic farm who use stock free farming to produce the lowest possible carbon footprint, cruelty free food. Their work is truly inspiring and aligned with our ethos of re-connecting and re-aligning with mother nature to live in more harmony.


The gathering begins on Tuesday afternoon and ends on Sunday evening. You are most welcome to come for the whole duration of the gathering, for the weekend, or for one day only.


Accommodation is provided on a secluded camping field next to the shores of the river with composting toilets and freshwater. Tents available to rent if you can not bring your own. 

Camper van's & caravans are welcome. 


Children are very welcome. Sorry no dogs.


There is plenty of space to keep within social distancing guidelines.


Surround yourself with 500 year old trees, wild flower meadows, stunning scenery, magical sunset views, wonderful wildlife & your community.

Absolutely heavenly to be with so many beautiful souls actually in person. It felt like one big family. The food as always was delicious. Loved the sweat lodge, which was the big draw for me this time. Feel so pleased with myself for actually swimming in the Thames. I thought Dima prepared us beautifully for it with the cleansing ritual. Really enjoyed Bara's hatha yoga teaching too. I will be back and I hope there is another sweat lodge.

I can not put into words how magical this retreat was. It was full of beautiful connections, stillness, yoga practice, wholesome food and set in the most gorgeous location. I'd been to Hardwick estate before and it definitely now has a very special place in my heart. Everyone involved in the retreat were amazing particularly Dima, Karen, Bara, Andy and Kitty. So grateful for all your offerings. I came back feeling centred and whole.. My heart, body and mind full of the most beautiful energies from the nature, the company and the food. Can't wait to come again soon and highly recommend to anyone (regardless of previous yoga experience). I believe retreats like this are vital for our health on so many levels and especially in this current way of life. I am so grateful to of been part of it. Thankyou so much ❤️✨

Learned loads about my practice and myself. A great community and a breathtaking landscape.
By P B for & Beyond: Wild Nature Yoga Gathering on 07 Jun, 2021
I've been back from this retreat for a week now and am still feeling the ripple effects of what was an incredible experience. As someone who has been on a lot of retreats, I can honestly say there was something very special about this one. From the way the schedule was so considerately planned, to the delicious food (especial thanks to Karen for being so brilliant in taking care of my food allergies), to the skills of all the facilitators, to the setting, the nature, the volunteers, the other participants...the whole vibe just WORKS! Dima is the 'real deal' and I'd totally recommend attending one of his retreats if you're thinking about it...I got way more out of it than I had expected and will definitely being going back for more. :)

I attended the Sweat snd Serenity Retreat - it was indeed a magical experience. Waking up to a bracing and refreshing wild swim, followed by daily yoga followed by a wonderful breakfast. The days activities were well planned out and varied ranging from a sweat lodge, forest bathing and meditation. We spent every evening around a fire, sharing, singing, laughing, crying and witnessing one another, it was such an impactful experience being in community and meeting wonderful people. The sweat lodge was held on Saturday and was an incredibly deep experience and one I shall always remember - the space and fire was held by Andy and his fire keepers who made you feel safe and connected which enabled you to go deep within. I can still smell the sweet grass in my nostrils. I throughly and surprisingly enjoyed the daily yoga ( and this was something I was least looking forward to having not embodied the practice myself) Bara was able to draw something out of each one of us despite what level one was at. She herself had a deep spiritual practice which really enabled me to see yoga in a different way, connecting to myself and something bigger. The food was absolutely amazing, so much thought and time had gone into its preparation and to ones ayurvedic dosha and accommodate each dish as particular digestive needs. The gong bath as a treat - lying still as the sun set feeling waves of energy flow through you. Walking to the splendour of the Oak tree ended our retreat and we sat there in beautiful community, in connection, with this ancient Oak - breathing in his breath and him breathing in ours - the reciprocal relationship we share. What a wonderfully nourishing experience - thank you - very much looking forward to the next one Marsha
