Location & Lunch

Gambledown Farm is situated in beautiful rural countryside just outside the New Forest.  It is the perfect space to escape to for a relaxing day away in the South of England. In addition it boasts it's own small but perfectly formed yoga studio with wood burning stove and gorgeous view. It really is the dream location.

On arrival you will be greeted with a delicious treat and warming drink.  Lunch will be lovingly prepared on site and will also be plant based.  During lunch there will be time to explore the farmland and abundance of nature around you or relax by the fire with a book or your journal.

Sound Bath

A sound bath will take you on a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating journey as you fly on the sounds of the vibrating gong and soothing crystal singing bowls.

Naomi has a deep experience for taking her clients on their sound bath flight with many remarking that it is "the most relaxed I've felt in ages!"

There is no movement, you are free to lay down in any comfortable position, but we do recommend lying on your back to absorb the vibrations fully through your body and your ears.
