Description

Join us at The Lodge for a peaceful few days of walking in the Welsh mountains complimented by post walk yoga and delicious hearty and healthy food each day.

The Walks

On day one we will warm up with a hike to the top of Pumlimon, the highest peak in the Cambrian Mountains at 752 metres. We will then wind our way down past the source of the River Severn and through the Hafren forest before heading back to the Lodge for some well earned post ride stretching and dinner.

Day two will be a bigger day, heading up to the top of Cadair Idris, a beautiful mountain in South Snowdonia. At 893 metres it’s a pretty good hike and you’ll be needing that yoga at the end of the day.

Day three will see us having a more mellow walk via Glyndwrs way into Machynlleth where we will finish the day relaxing  at a riverside sauna – the perfect way to soothe any aching muscles.

The Yoga

Suitable for all levels, the yoga this week will be designed to stretch out post hiking soreness and get you ready for the day ahead. We will have a short morning practice each day before breakfast and a longer more relaxing session each evening before dinner.

The Food

Most important to all our retreats. You will be well fed with nourishing, healthy and delicious food throughout your stay. Unlimited teas and coffees, varied packed lunches and of course plenty of home made cakes to keep you fuelled up for the week. We cater for all dietary needs.

The Venue

The Lodge is a mountain style chalet in the middle of Wales. Set in a peaceful location overlooking Pumlimon itself it’s the perfect base for our walks this week.

 

 

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.
