Included accommodation, all meals, yoga and activities
Three nights’ accommodation, delicious veggie meals from Friday evening to Monday morning breakfast. Vegan, gluten and dairy free options available. Unlimited teas, coffee and fruit available, cake or snacks at teatime.
As early autumn can be seen in the changing colour of leaves and the darker nights drawing in, we are reminded how the changing of seasons can feel on our body. It’s an ideal time to get a date in the diary for self-care. While travel abroad is still a little uncertain, it’s a perfect time to spend time at this lovely retreat in Wales.
Give yourself the gift of space and time to practice and connect with yourself.
Yoga
Gentle, restorative, meditative and Yoga Nidra practice will take place in the evenings. (Friday/Sat/Sun)
Early morning meditation practice for those who wish for an early start. (Sat/Sun/Mon) (quick break and time to get a cuppa before Hatha Yoga)
Hatha Yoga morning practice to energise, awaken, focus, challenge, have fun, rest and to take us into connection and presence. (Sat/Sun/Mon)
Accommodation Double, twin or bunk rooms are available for single or shared occupancy. If you elect to share you can be matched with one other same sex participant if not coming with a friend or partner. The rooms are spacious so you will still feel quite private if sharing. There is no upper and lower bunk sharing unless you request it for a larger room share with a group of friends. Most rooms have a nearby private shower room, some rooms share with one other room. Plentiful washbasins and loos are in separate male and female facilities.
Activities
We are in prime territory mid-Wales for lovely walks or mountain biking. It’s also a great spot for wild swimming but unless you like it cold, at this time of year you’ll probably need a wetsuit. Weather permitting we will socialise around the firepit under the stars which are beautiful in this ‘dark skies’ area of Wales. On another evening a free movement dance will be offered, a chance to dance like no-one is watching, to be free to express your body, mind and soul. If you don’t wish to be active there are cosy places to simply snuggle next to the wood burner and read your book.
Travel
Please contact Amanda for details of car sharing if you wish. Or train travel to the nearby station (20 mins), transfers can be arranged.
Amanda

Over the years of teaching full time since 2008 I have come to realise that I am deeply passionate about making yoga accessible to everybody, regardless of ability.  The range of classes I offer ensures that everyone can physically practice yoga, from beginners to experienced practitioners, pregnant students, and students with disabilities. Annual training courses, continued self-study and regular home practice, as well as attending weekly classes and learning from my students keep me working on being the best yoga teacher that I can be. Everything that we learn about ourselves on the yoga mat are wonderful skills that we can carry with us throughout our lives, making yoga a lifelong practice to deepen and enrich our lives. By joining yoga classes with me, you can expect a whole colourful tapestry of what comprises yoga mixed with easy-to-understand philosophy and a sprinkle of humour, whilst I physically challenge you to explore your own potential.

All levels and all abilities are welcome
