Experience Itinerary

Arrival Day and Star Gazing

Arrive in the heart of the Cambrian mountains, feeling the weight lift from your shoulders as you drop your bags down in your spacious lodge. Your chalet home is surrounded by enchanting forests, glistening lakes and rugged mountains, making for the perfect backdrop as you unwind and your worries drift far away.

Once you’ve made yourself at home and explored the lodge, join us around the fire after dinner as our local storyteller recounts local tales and legends under the stars. The Cambrian mountains are known for their extremely dark skies, with very little light pollution, so be sure to turn your head to the sky as you may spot the Plough (Ursa Major), North Star, Summer Triangle, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and of course the Milky Way.

Yoga and Wild Walks

The first morning of your holistic wellness experience is a gentle guided yoga session. Roll out a mat and take it slow as you tune into your body and gain a sense of mindfulness. You’ll start each morning in this way, perfectly in tune with your body.

When you’re ready, enjoy a wholesome breakfast at the lodge to fuel your body for the day ahead.

Venture into the lush outdoors as your guide leads you on a walk into the wilds of mid Wales. As you explore the rugged landscape, keep your eyes peeled for Ospreys and Red Kites. With such quiet valleys, the walk will give you plenty of opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the landscape and take your mind off any distractions you’ve left behind. Along the way, take the chance for a wild dip in one of the many waterfalls and rivers hidden amongst the valleys.

With so many breathtaking panoramic views of the landscape, you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to enjoy your picnic lunch before making your way back to the lodge.

Take some time to yourself, kick your feet up and unwind in front of the log fire after your first full day. Or why not join us for another yoga session to wind down before you tuck yourself into bed.

Your yoga guide will help you instill a sense of mindful relaxation, perfect for alleviating any tension or worries, allowing you to drift soundly to sleep.

Stand Up Paddleboarding and Sound Baths

You’ll start your day with another guided yoga session in the beautiful Cambrian mountains. Yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body, which is exactly what this holistic wellness experience is all about.

After fueling your body with a delicious breakfast, walk out into the incredible landscape of mid Wales, across open hillsides and past ebbing rivers.

Your destination is the Clwyedog Reservoir, a six mile lake nestled in the sprawling Hafren forest. Once here, you’ll zip up your wetsuit and head out onto the water with your boards for a peaceful paddle. Our local guide will be on hand to teach you the basics of stand up paddleboarding as you transfer your yoga balance and breathing techniques on to the water.

After a delicious lunch, this afternoon you will be introduced to a healing sound bath. Let the waves of soothing, echoing sound from gongs, singing bowls and percussion instruments wash over you as the otherworldly reverberations lead you into a deep state of relaxation.

This evening, you’ll have the opportunity to join the group for another yoga session before you retire to bed. The slow, deep stretching before bed will relieve any tension or aches in your body and allow you to completely relax before you drift into a deep and restful slumber.

Discover Stunning Eco-Centres

After your morning sun salutations and a wholesome breakfast your group will be taken to a world renowned eco-centre, the Centre for Alternative Technology. Dedicated to showcasing and teaching sustainable development and greener ways of living, you’ll form an even deeper connection with nature. Discover a hidden world of stunning organic gardens, experimental green buildings, sustainably managed woodland habitats and packed full of working examples of renewable energy. Whilst here, you’ll enjoy a nourishing plant-based lunch sourced directly from the site’s own gardens.

Join your group for a relaxing session of energising breath work, asanas and flows as you wind down before another night of deep sleep on your holistic wellness retreat.

Optional Activity

After a busy day spent exploring the eco-centre, you may want to take your relaxation to the next level this evening and schedule an evening massage.

Your massage therapist will utilise hands-on techniques to increase circulation, reduce stress, relieve tension and promote relaxation.
Cost: £65 per person

Final Full Day of Yoga and Walking

After a series of energising flows to increase your energy and a healthful breakfast, you’ll be ready to conquer your day. Today’s walk takes you in a new direction as you venture out into the surrounding woodlands. The deep colours, soft creaking branches overhead and rich smell of damp earth will ground you in the present and give you a new appreciation for the world around you. Stumble upon hidden rivers wide enough for a paddle if you’d like. Exploring further into the dense forest, take comfort in the tranquil stillness and serenity that may seem at odds with your busy everyday life. In this idyllic setting, take the chance to pause for a bite to eat before making your way back to your lodge.

Join your yoga guide for one final evening of poses naturally designed to relax your body and mind, the perfect way to end your holistic wellness experience and focus on the present.

Departure Day

Enjoy your healthful breakfast on your final morning before taking some time for yourself relaxing in your lodge or perhaps exploring the landscape one last time before you bid your home from home farewell. Swap phone numbers with your new-found friends and depart feeling re-energised and recharged.

Not only will you take home the incredible memories from your holistic wellbeing retreat, but also mindful yoga practices to incorporate into your everyday life, wholesome food inspiration and a deeper connection with nature.
