Description

Join us at the beautiful Stackpole estate in Pembrokeshire for a weekend of Yoga and coastal walking. With fabulous ensuite accommodation and delicious food, yoga sessions and limited phone reception this is the ideal weekend getaway. The venue is minutes away from the stunning Bosherton lily ponds and a within walking distance of both Barafundle bay and Broadhaven bay where there are plenty of places to swim, walk and just relax.

 

The Yoga

This weekend will give you a chance to immerse yourself into your practice. 5 sessions over the weekend with a mixture of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and Yin yoga to both energise and relax your body and mind. Suitable for all levels and you can choose to attend as many or as few sessions as you wish.

 

The Walking

The Stackpole estate is right on Bosherton lily ponds and from there you can walk for miles in both directions along the coastal path. There are two lovely bays which are ideal for a quick dip in the sea (bring a wetsuit if you have one!) and a visit to St Govan’s chapel is very delightful. We will be going on a walk ourselves and you are welcome to join but you are also more than welcome to go off and explore for yourselves, take some time out, do some otter spotting or just head down to the walled garden cafe and relax with a book and a coffee…the choice is yours.

 

What’s included.

Full board accommodation from Friday evening to Sunday morning in ensuite twin rooms (some single rooms available on a first come, first served basis with a single supplement of £40, please get in touch to reserve). Five yoga sessions over the weekend. Tea and coffee available all weekend and wine will be served with dinner.

 

What’s not included.

Travel to the accommodation. Cafe stops or extra excursions.

FAQs

Q: Can I drink alcohol on the weekend events/retreats?

A: In some venues there is an honesty bar and on our weekend yoga retreats we do serve wine with dinner. We neither encourage nor discourage drinking alcohol as we see it as a personal choice.

Q: Do you cater for special diets/vegan/gluten free?

A: We cater extremely well for most dietary needs. Often our gluten free puddings are the envy of everyone else at the table. Just make sure you let us know any dietary needs

Q: Is there wifi/phone reception?

A: In most of our venues we have limited phone reception and wifi. We see this as a rather good thing, giving everyone time to switch off and unplug.

Q: Can I have a single room?

A: In Elan Valley lodge everyone can have a single room if they wish. At some of our other venues the rooms are shared twins. We do have some single rooms available with a supplement. See individual events pages for details.

Q: Do I have to attend all the yoga sessions?

A: You can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish.

Q: What type of yoga will we practice?

A: I teach Hatha yoga with a emphasis on Vinyasa Flow. This is a freestyle form of yoga where poses are linked together with the breath to form flows. It's not necessarily fast but it is strong and dynamic. There will also be elements of Yin and Restorative yoga included.

Q: My balance is terrible, why is that?

A: It's very common to struggle with balance, especially if you are just starting out on your yoga journey. The best approach is to not worry too much about it. Don't focus too hard on trying to balance and definitely don't worry if you fall over. Focus on keeping the breath nice and steady and stay relaxed and with practice you will improve.

Q: Isn't yoga just about sitting and meditating?

A: Meditation is an aspect of Hatha yoga, however there is much more to yoga than sitting in the lotus position. We use a strong physical practice along with specific breath techniques to tap into our focus and concentration. We see this practice as a form of moving meditation.

Q: Are the yoga sessions suitable for beginners?

A: Yes! The sessions are tailored to be accessible for most people with plenty of options for more or less challenge. If you do have specific limitations or an ongoing condition or injury do get in touch to discuss.

Q: I'm not flexible at all, can I still do yoga?

A: Yes! You don't need to be flexible to practice yoga. The practice itself will improve range of motion, strength and flexibility so being stiff is all the more reason to start.
