Last year we visited the lovely country estate at Belvoir Castle. The castle is home to the Duchess of Rutland and is the magnificent Windsor Castle duplicate in TV series ‘The Crown’.
The Engine Yard Based on the estate is home to a number of businesses From places to eat like the balloon bar to shops selling homewares, gifts and more. There’s even a playpark for those of you like us are traveling the world one play park at a time!
Last week I headed to the engine yard after dark for an evening yoga class in the new Wellness Centre.
Sunita Passi Wellness Centre
Sunita Passi Set up the Wellness Centre and Shop in 2019. It features a yoga studio as well as treatment rooms for Sunita to practice her Ayurvedic and holistic treatments.
The shop features her very own natural skincare range which I can tell you smells incredible.
Yoga at The Wellness Centre
Arriving in the evening to The Engine yard you can see the stunning brick buildings lit up in all their glory as you walk through to the Wellness centre.
Once upstairs there is a changing area and bathroom with lockers and refreshments. and a shoe rack.
On the night I met Sunita and a couple of the teachers holding that hold classes at the centre. All of them were so welcoming and have that calming zenness about them.
The room itself is quite compact but that didn’t affect how much I got out of the yoga session.
I have done a little yoga before however there are sessions to suit all abilities at the centre. There is also meditation classes that are held at the centre too.
Meditation is a great way of reconnecting with yourself and getting back that feeling of calm.
Points to note.
I always take a drink to yoga sessions even though a lot of the moves are gentle you still need to keep hydrated.
I arrived after dark which means the main car park to the engine yard is actually closed. You can park across the road however in the overflow car park. If you are there before the main car park is closed and you are planning on staying after closing time (Around 4pm week days) for your yoga session I suggest you also park in the overflow. Once the gates are shut you may well be there overnight. I would also take a torch if you night vision is as bad as mine. There is no light in the car park or on the road. It is the countryside afterall.
It would be best to contact the centre to book on to any of the sessions they are quite popular.
In order to write about the Wellness Centre I was gifted a complimentary Yoga session. As always I only work with brands and companies that are a fit for my family and my lifestyle. All opinions are my own!
