The gift of Autumn is the support it offers in our ability to let go. Therefore, this is an excellent time to let go of unhealthy habits, release stagnant emotions and clear out that which no longer serves you. Join us for a special four week course of autumnal detox, designed to specifically tend to your bodies needs in this season of change.


This detox program is designed to prepare your mind, body and soul for the colder months ahead. It will assist you in gracefully making the shift from the summer's outward energy, Yang, to inward fall/winter, Yin energy. Each of the four weeks will offer a practice with focus on the physical cleansing of the: immune system, elimination organs, lymph glands and lungs, then kidneys. Additionally, as noted in Chinese medicine, the elements that those parts of the body hold. This month long journey will further connect you to the metal, emotional and spiritual aspects of the seasonal shift and to your Authentic Self. 


Included in the detox course is instructions and inspirations for diet, supportive meditations and energetic and self-care practices. This can be a transformational time leaving you more radiant and replenished on many levels. 


Before each detox programme, there will be a Kundalini Yoga Class, also led by Sarah O'Brien too, [click here to book Kundalini Yoga] which you are very much encouraged to join the yoga before.


Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice, awakening and connecting us to the vibrant energies that both surround and exist within us through breath work, asana (yoga postures), mantra chanting and meditation. This practice invigorates energy in the body to move upward, from the base of the spine, inviting renewed power, intuition and joy.

The practice of Traditional Hatha Yoga uses the techniques of holding postures whilst observing the natural breath. Through the inwardly drawn perception the intelligence of the body awakens and brings peace to the mind. This Method is open to anybody, that is any “body” can do it, it will be challenging to everybody. This is because the practice emphasises the mind's capacity to focus over the athletic ability of the body. It is recommended not to eat 1-2 hours before class and come with a relatively empty stomach. 


This class is led by Franzi.


This is a 75min Class and the sauna will be lit after for some extra deep relaxation. Feel free to stay a little longer after class and enjoy what Cara Creek has to offer.

A floor-based practice to improve bone and joint health, to regulate the body's flow of energy, to calm the body's nervous system, to decrease inflammation, and to boost stamina and immunity.


We use props to support the body and find our unique sweet spot in the pose that we can relax into and be still for the duration using time, gravity and our breath for the 3-6 minutes or more in the yoga posture. With these long and deep stretches we mildly stress (in a good way) the joints and fascia, allowing them to release tension.


This is a 75min Class and the sauna will be lit after for some extra deep relaxation.
