We are so happy to invite you to our annual U.K based retreat, this time we have chosen the beautiful venue of Riverside Cottage in Winchester in Hampshire. This is the perfect location to enjoy a yoga retreat. The cottage has a wonderful family home feel to it so we know you truly will be able to relax and unwind in a comfy and warm environment.

The Retreat

A typical day on this retreat will be waking up to morning pranayama practice, follow by 90 mins Asana Practice in our own Yurt in the gardens of the cottage, energising Ashtanga Vinyasa or strong empowering Hatha Flow. 

We will enjoy a plant based breakfast prepared on site by our own Humblebee Chef. You then have the day to do with as you please, maybe relaxing by the private pool or exploring the local walks in the countryside.

We will meet again in the early evening for our Restorative Yoga Session followed by a yummy dinner together in our delightful homely cottage. 


Humble – Simple – Soul Nurturing.


The Cottage 

Riverside Cottage is a family home – The cottage sleeps 10 in twin sharing rooms and we also have a lodge on the same site which can accommodate an other 4 people.  All rooms will be shared unless otherwise stated.
There is a swimming pool and the grounds of Riverside Cottage allow everyone to have their own space.
Humblebee are extremely professional in our offerings to everyone who stays but this does not take away from the personal touch or the experience of coming to a countryside location where we value the natural beauty of Hampshire and all that it provides – its walks, its attractions, farmers markets and local producers, its cities, architecture and history, the excellent restaurants and huge range of sporting activities from horse riding to golf. You are spoilt for choice!
Riverside Cottage also boasts an amazing contemporary yurt in its grounds in which we will be practicing Yoga morning and evening.

The Teachers



Rachel has been practicing yoga for just over 9 years & has always loved its endless benefits inside & out! She founded Humblebee in early 2016 to celebrate the origins of Yoga she had discovered in both her 200h and 300h teacher trainings in India. In the Himalayas with her 200h course- she came away feeling totally full of love, completely challenged, heart warmingly inspired and utterly humbled by her experience there. She continued to teach for a further 18 months before it felt right to go for her deeper training (300h). She was overwhelmingly blessed to be able to train in Mysore, India in the disciplined practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa – this is the birth place of Ashtanga. From these experiences she wanted to bring a sense of Eastern authenticity to her classes in respect for the ancient yoga tradition and scientific and logical practice. She firmly believes that Yoga with its therapeutic values can keep the mind as well as the body healthy – with daily asana, pranayama and meditation practice we can help keep our mind, body and soul in harmony with one another making life happy healthy and meaningful.





Becky discovered yoga 3 years ago. Being quite an active person, she was initially drawn more powerful styles of yoga. However, over a short period of time, she found herself craving more than just the physical practice – to find time away from the chaos of the western world. It became her passion & found herself drawn to do her 200hr teacher training in the West Midlands in 2016 to expand her knowledge. Becky believes that Yoga is not just a physical exercise but a way of life – a space for us to feel safe to question, become aware and soften the layers of the self  to discover a sense of peace.
