September Yoga retreat at Llanberis Retreats

Come and join me for a beautiful slow September weekend at beautiful Llanberis retreats.

We will begin on Friday evening with a gentle unwinding floor practice to help you leave the week behind before a delicious supper created by Dave Rutter co owner of the retreat.

You can then absorb the stunning surroundings before a pyjama practice of deep relaxation before bed.

On Saturday morning we practice before breakfast, a gently active practice in which we focus on the restfulness within our movements.

Delicious breakfast will follow and then free time to walk, rest, explore,read whatever your body and mind need.

And then lunch followed by more free time and then afternoon exploratory yoga practice, a more restorative session followed by supper.

In the evening we take a simple ritual practice and pyjama practice will be available again!

Sunday morning practice consolidates all we have covered over the weekend and then breakfast and free time before a closing ritual and lunch.

I like to give plenty of space and time for you to make this retreat as spacious as possible. The practices create a safe container for your own exploration and hopefully will provide useful tools to take away with you.
