The 2024 Course Programme

Yoga retreat in nature in rural Wales with Emma Arscott YOAS Yoga Retreats
08 Aug - 11 Aug 2024

Retreat programme

There will be two yoga classes each day with Emma. Mornings will begin with a quiet meditation and gentle pranayama followed by an energising yoga asana practice. In the evenings there will be a shorter relaxing restorative yoga class to ease you into your evening. Emma will also offer optional workshops throughout the weekend.

Each day after morning yoga and breakfast there will be the opportunity to explore, take a dip in the wild swimming pool, have a sauna or simply relax.

Arrival time on Thursday 8 August is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish at 10am on Sunday 11 August, after breakfast.

Things to do

Garth Barns offers comfortable accommodation in which to relax and enjoy a good book, take to the hills and fields on long (or short) stunning nature walks. Amble about the local town, have a cup of tea or peruse the shops. Take a sauna or a dip in the natural swimming pond. There will be delicious vegetarian food and plenty of time just to hang out and chat, meet new people, read, relax and enjoy being in nature and taking a break. A variety of massage treatments will also be available at an additional cost.

Emma Arscott

Emma’s intention is to create an inspiring space for joy and transformation through yoga, meditation and breathwork. She truly believes that there is so much wisdom within the yoga practice that can reconnect our mind, body and soul and is passionate about making yoga available to as many people as possible.

She trained to teach yoga in Rishikesh, India, the home and heart of yoga and is extremely grateful to all of her amazing teachers she has worked with and learned from. Like a lot of people, she first came to the practice for the physical aspect and very quickly realised that there was a certain magic beyond the poses. The positive effects that the practice generated started to trickle into all aspects of her life and were so profound she felt called to share it with others.

Emma loves to blend modern anatomy teachings with traditional yogic philosophy to create well rounded sessions where you can learn about the fascinating biomechanics of your body, while giving your mind some well needed time and space away from the pressures of daily life. You can expect to be challenged in a slow, yet strong alignment-based flow to strengthen, tone and soothe your body. You will explore and connect through movement and breathwork keeping mindfulness at the heart of the practice. Each class will have a different focus, and there will always be options to make sure you’re practicing the right way for your body. You will finish the sessions feeling uplifted, nourished and refreshed ready to take on the world!
