THE YOGA GARDEN SANCTUARY (Rae Hine: Padbury, Buckingham)
It’s hard to think of a nicer place to practice in the summer months than ‘The Yoga Garden Sanctuary’ — Rae Hine’s home yoga space in Padbury, Buckingham. It’s surrounded by lush green foliage, the perfect backdrop for a healing practice immersed in the natural world. It’s also a private, secluded working space where Hine invites her students to join her. “This is my unique yoga space,” she tells OM. “To me, it’s all about being surrounded, enveloped by greenery. My space is positioned at the bottom of a garden, a modest 1930s semi in the village of Padbury.
Looking out of the lozenge studio window you can see my chickens, a little piece of rural tranquility and serenity. The house is surrounded by other houses but the natural hedges and trees screen the other village homes. A breathing space for me and my students.”
