Description

Sometimes it takes more than a weekend to unravel from the stresses and strains of busy lifestyles and constant demands of work, family and social media. For this reason we are offering a longer retreat style week in the stunning Cambrian Mountains in 2022.

 

With far reaching views and plenty of space to explore and recharge, The Lodge at Staylittle is an ideal place to take some time out for yourself and give your body, mind and soul a chance to breath.

 

There’ll be two yoga sessions each day that you can choose to come to if you wish but if you need extra time in bed that is also an option.

 

There are walks, running routes, cycling routes and places to swim during the week, we can point you in the right direction and give you route guides. We will be offering some more guided walks/rides and river dips which you can choose to join in on if you wish. Our main focus is relaxation and unwinding so it will always be up to you what you choose to do. You may just wish to bring a good book and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the area.

 

Further Info

The Accommodation

The Lodge is Mountain Yoga Breaks’ new HQ and we love it here. Panoramic views across the Cambrian Mountains and lots of space to relax and recharge. We have a dedicated Yoga shala, a stylish lounge and dining room and comfortable beds. You are welcome to book a private room or bring a friend and share. The rooms are spacious enough not to feel crowded and most of the rooms open out into the garden.

 

The Food

We pride ourselves on serving fresh and delicious home made food that will nourish your body and senses. We use local produce as much as possible and everything is hand prepared. Our chef caters to all dietary needs.

The Yoga

Morning Vinyasa flow sessions will wake you up gently before creating challenge and focus for your body, mind and breath.  The evening sessions will be more restorative and focus on dropping into stillness to send you towards a good nights sleep.

Sessions will be suitable for all abilities but if you do have restricted mobility be prepared to sit some things out and rest if you need to.

 

The area

Set in the heart of the Cambrian mountains The Lodge has a big wild playground on it’s doorstep. Whether you like trail running, walking, cycling or wild swimming, we have it all here. Feel free to bring bikes with you if you would like to ride. You can hike to the source of the River Severn or just take a quiet meander down the beautiful Pennant valley which is full of magical waterfall pools for dipping in.

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.
