Up to 60 people joined north Norfolk yoga teacher Vee Zappia on the lawn outside Felbrigg Hall to welcome the autumn equinox.
Ms Zappia led participants through a number of yoga poses, breathing techniques and meditations as the sun set over the National Trust stately home at the end of a beautiful afternoon.
The unusual event, during which a donations bucket was circulated, raised £500.
Most has been given to the Ellen Mezzetti Memorial Fund in aid of Epilepsy Research UK. Cromer student Ellen died from a seizure in her sleep, aged 16, in 2006.
Ellen's grandmother Liz Mezzetti was among those taking part.
Ten per cent of the collection has been given to Felbrigg Hall.
'The atmosphere was magical - the passion, the love, the selflessness - it was fabulous. There were all ages and abilities there, from three to 75,' said Ms Zappia, who has been teaching yoga for 12 years and has studied the discipline in India.
