What You'll Do

Head to Anglesey for a luxury yoga and wellness retreat, and really get in touch with the landscape on beautiful coastal walks with a small group of like-minded travellers.

Dates available in 2021:
8 October
15 October
29 October

For anyone that feels as if they need to escape their hectic life, and experience true relaxation and reinvigoration in the great outdoors, this retreat gets you out onto hikes that aren’t on the tourist trail, getting you off the beaten path and truly immersed in the landscape, coupled with daily yoga and meditation.

Each day you will discover new areas, secluded, misty beaches, hidden coves, ancient castles or picturesque villages, on foot and breathe in the clean sea air that settles over the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.

During your downtime, there will be sessions of meditation and yoga, led by expert tutors, ensuring that by the time you leave your little haven in Wales, you’ll feel totally refreshed and recharged in mind and body , ready for the winter months ahead.

The guided hikes have been walked by locals for hundreds of years, but are still a relative mystery to tourists, so we will be striking out on quiet trails and enjoying the peace and serenity of this beautiful island.

You’ll be staying in a cosy country house surrounded by beautiful parkland, the ideal place for those who just want to unwind in a tranquil space, far from our busy daily lives.

Healthy eating is an integral part of the retreat experience and three nourishing plant based meals are provided each day, which are low in sugar and dairy free, plus herbal teas, fruit and healthy afternoon snacks. Please let us know of any intolerances when you book so that we can accommodate these.

A range of optional relaxing massages treatments are also available at the retreat using therapeutic organic oils, to help ease away any stresses and strains at an extra charge of £45 for 40 minutes.

Your Local Host:

Laura Bell

Laura landed into yoga quite literally after being thrown out of a boat in Australia 11 years ago and landing with a broken back. After 3 months of rehabilitation, she was able to walk again but was told her passion of running was no longer an option and that yoga would be the best form of exercise to aid her recovery. As she started to practise yoga as a way to keep her back strong and pain free, her love of yoga was born. After training with David Swenson in Ashtanga yoga a new yogic way of life flourished.

From teaching weekly classes and workshops she soon realised that she wanted to give her students more. It was then that her retreats were born. She found a stunning location, taught the yoga, led the group on coastal walks and with the help of her mum cooked the meals. It was very much a family affair, with her sister helping out and carrying out the massages. But demand for the retreats grew and now have a team of like minded, caring women running the retreats throughout the year. Laura is still very much involved in the running of the retreats and will often be there to help set up, sometimes with a baby or toddler in tow!

2nd October - Claire Riley

For Claire yoga has been a lifelong passion. She has been practising for more than 40 years and has studied with many inspiring teachers in many different styles. She qualified to teach at Camyoga in Cambridge in 2015. Her regular style of yoga is Hatha Flow. Each of her classes are carefully sequenced to safely align, stretch and strengthen the entire body on a physical level and to release tensions, emotional blockages and encourage the flow of energy on a subtle level. Expect a fairly intense experience but you are never pushed beyond your own limits. She gives modifications and progressions as required to suit your individual needs.

9th October - Kate Hamilton-Hunter

Experiencing one of Kate’s yoga classes is a perfect opportunity to find the balance that you need in life. Kate Hamilton-Hunter has been teaching since 2013. She began studying Hatha yoga and then trained in Dru Yoga, which is a more flowing style of yoga. Kate responds to the different needs of the group and accommodates all levels of yoga experience in her classes. Kate’s morning classes are more dynamic and energising, setting you up for the days activity. The evening classes will have a more restorative focus, with time for meditation, setting intentions and long nurturing relaxations. You will feel restored and revitalised from this retreats yoga sessions.

Yes, you can.
