Description

Join us at Ty Gwyn on the beautiful Welsh coastline for a very special weekend retreat. With views over the Llyn Peninsula, a wood fired sauna and hot tub, sunset watching on the outdoor deck and bonfires into the evening, this weekend is the perfect way to relax and unwind from the pressures of everyday life.

Practice Vinyasa flow yoga in the morning and enjoy a more yin based meditative practice in the evenings. In between explore the foothills of Cader Idris by foot or on bike, paddle in mountain lakes, take a dip in the sea, or simply bring a book, find a quiet spot and relax.

You will eat delicious vegetarian and vegan food prepared by our in house chefs, a variety of cold pressed fruit and vegetable juices in the morning with breakfast and have unlimited herbal tea, coffee and cake available throughout the day.

We will also have a masseur on hand to help you totally unwind over the weekend.

Rooms are either Kings or Twins. Single supplement is £75

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.
