Yoga and Hiking Retreat

What You'll Do

This luxury retreat is perfect for anyone looking to get out of the city and explore the stunning national park of Snowdonia on guided hikes through the mountains, as well as relax and unwind with professional yoga and meditation sessions.

Available dates in 2022:
1 April
22 April

Once you arrive at the elegant country home that acts as your accommodation for the weekend you’ll be able to totally relax, unwind and head out to explore the stunning wilderness, the brooding peaks and deep corries of Snowdonia, as well as the windswept coastline and secluded beaches of Anglesey, on a number of guided hikes.

Each day you will discover new trails through the mountains that have been used by the locals for hundreds of years, but are still far enough of the tourist trail to feel as if you’re hiking through genuine wilderness and far from the beaten track.

You’ll also be able to re-energise with professional yoga and meditation classes, during a retreat designed to rejuvenate and re-nourish mind and body.

Head out for the great outdoors, drink in the magical scenery and enjoy the clean, fresh mountain and sea air, and return home feeling thoroughly satisfied and reinvigorated.

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!

Amazing weekend! Magnificent yoga with the Wonderful Claire in the most beautiful of settings. Everyone so friendly and welcoming, food was also outstanding. The hidden Gardens are just a big bonus and the SUP was an experience I can’t wait to do again. The whole package was brilliant and one I’m sure my daughter and I will be repeating soon!

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.

Yes, you can.
