Description

Join me in at The Lodge in Staylittle for a weekend of yoga, nourishing food, wild walks and cosy evenings around the fire.

Spring is the perfect time to have a recharge of energy before you launch into the rest of the year. As Winter comes to an end your energy may be feeling sluggish and in need of a boost. You will spend this weekend doing just that. With positivity boosting yoga practices each day, a chance to set your intentions for the year ahead, space to reflect and feel nurtured and time to be inspired by others, share stories and laughter.

You’ll also get the chance to explore the beautiful wild landscape surrounding The Lodge, with mountain lakes, river and waterfalls to visit and a sense of quiet peacefulness all around.

The Yoga

There will be 6 sessions over the weekend. Friday evening will be a nice gentle all round class to help you arrive and settle in after your journey. Each evening after dinner there will be an optional restorative yoga class designed to give you a good nights sleep.

Morning classes will be Vinyasa flow, easing you into the day gently to begin with and then turning up the energy to leave you feeling ready for the day ahead.

The afternoon sessions will be quieter and more meditative yin style classes.

The Food

Nutritious, tasty, home cooked and healthy is our ethos for the food we serve you here at The Lodge. We can cater for all dietary needs – just let us know in plenty of time.

Yoga will be before breakfast but there’ll be fruit and hot drinks on hand to keep you going. You’ll have a delicious brunch after yoga, tea and cake in the afternoon and a two course evening meal each night.

The Accommodation

The Lodge is our new HQ and we are very proud of it. Comfortable and spacious rooms, amazing views and a warm yoga space. All the single rooms have now been taken. Price based on a shared room (max two sharing unless you are a group of friends that would like to share)

Extras

Book a massage or a reflexology treatment for an extra treat. Just let us know which you’d prefer on booking.

There’ll be some walking options each day but you are also free to do your own thing, go for a run, find some cold water to dip into or relax in our comfortable lounge with a book….whatever takes your fancy.

 

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.
