The space is fully stocked with mats, blocks, belts, and bolsters.

Inner Guidance Yoga Holiday UK Program

Going on a retreat is an inspiring opportunity to plan and map the coming months and set some goals to achieve a more content and peaceful environment. Jo loves teaching meditation retreats to allow you to fully immerse yourself into your practice with no worries of work or family commitments. During the retreat, it’s like taking off the outer layer of responsibilities and expectations, which the world and ourselves impose, leaving you completely open to be totally yourself and go deeper within yourself.

Whether you already have a regular meditation and / or yoga practice or are a complete beginner, this retreat is ideal for you and will provide a truly in-depth experience. You can come alone or with your partner or friend. Through your spiritual practice, you will learn to accept yourself for who you are and find peace within. As this process unfolds, an inner happiness grows and when you return home, your loved ones will really notice the difference because the happiness inside emanates outwards and touches everyone you come into contact with.



You will attend Quantum Superpowers workshop with Jo De Rosa. It will include classes on meditation, manifestation and Restorative yoga, a cacao ceremony, as well as group discussion and meditations to help you uncover your truth and consciously create your dream future.


You will enjoy a gourmet vegan Clean Cooking workshop with ‘Clean’ chef, Dom De Rosa. During the workshop, you will be taught some of the retreat center’s signature dishes (vegan, wheat, gluten, sugar, processed foods and alcohol-free) and show you simple changes that can transform your and your families’ eating habits so that you all become happier and healthier.

Jo De Rosa started her business, Inner Guidance, in 2001 and has been teaching meditation and yoga in Thailand and UK since then.

Dominic De Rosa
Together with Jo, Dominic loves to share the knowledge of finding true happiness with you. He is a "clean" chef who will serve the food and be the presenter of the clean cooking workshop.


The retreat will be held in Suffolk, England. The beautiful 500-year-old retreat venue you'll be staying at, Inner Guidance Retreat Centre, is just outside the stunning village of Lavenham, which is probably the most picturesque medieval village you will come across.

The retreat center sits on a hill within three acres and has commanding views of the area. It is located on 500 acres of the local farmers' land where ironically wheat is currently being grown. It can be reached from London within 90 minutes by train or car:

How to get there

Driving directions from London

  • From London, take the M11 coming off at the A120 at Bishops Stortford / Stansted.
  • Follow to Braintree and then take the A131 through Halstead to Sudbury, then follow the B1115 into Lavenham.
  • On arrival to Lavenham, you will see The Swan Restaurant and Hotel on the corner of Water Street.
  • Turn into Water Street and continue down until the road bears sharply to the right. This road then becomes Brent Eleigh Road and you will drive along it for around one mile.
  • You will pass a layby on the left and Inner Guidance's drive is immediately on the right.
  • You will see the sign and prayer flags hanging on the gates. Drive all the way up to the top of the hill, the retreat center is on the left.

Driving directions from North England

  • From the North of England, take the A14, coming off at Bury St Edmunds East / Sudbury.
  • Follow the A134 for around five miles, turning left at the A1141 and following the signs to ‘Historic Lavenham’.
  • From Lavenham, follow the directions above.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at London Stansted Airport (STN).

Arrival by train

The nearest train station is Sudbury railway station. From London, take a train from Liverpool Street and change at Marks Tey. On your way to Inner Guidance, you will not need to walk over the bridge but simply walk across to the other platform where the connecting Sudbury train is usually waiting. In Sudbury, Inner Guidance uses the Sudbury Cab Company and they have an agreed price of 13 GBP (each way).

For groups traveling together, it may be easier to get the train from Liverpool Street to Colchester railway station. The train is quicker and direct, but the taxi fare is around 35 GBP each way which is no problem for groups but not such a good option if you travel alone.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 100% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
