WILD HIGHLAND RETREAT- August 12-17 2017

In the middle of glorious summer, we will be making a pilgrimage to the magical Scottish Highlands. We will be making our home in a family-run, off-the-grid eco-retreat. It’s surrounded by waterfalls and trees, the air is clean and crisp, and the beds are so wildly comfortable. It is lush and green and grounding. You will leave feeling refreshed, purposeful, and in touch with your own wild nature. This is my idea of a perfect retreat, and I hope it is yours too!

Every day will begin with an intention-setting meditation and an energising dynamic practice, designed around the elements of fire, earth, air and water. Every evening will finish with a yin practice to soothe the mind and body. In this retreat, surrounded by little else other than Mother Nature, you will be given an opportunity to connect to yourself in the deepest way. There are few distractions from the outside world. There is just you, your practice, your fellow retreaters, and the forest.

Water is a powerful healer. There are two outdoor bath tubs on the premises. You can bathe privately with the sound of a waterfall rumbling beside you. There is also a spring fed hot tub in geodesic dome, a cold plunge bath, and a sauna. In addition to this, there is an on-site massage therapist who is an intuitive magic-worker and can be booked upon your arrival.

The bedrooms have their own entrances, with a little living space and ensuite toilets, so you have a real sanctuary to yourself. Each bedroom has a large glass window so that you can enjoy the natural sunlight coming through to your suite if you choose. This space is for your quiet contemplation and rest, and you are welcome to spend as much or as little time here as you choose. There is also a communal area on site, if you want to spend time with your fellow retreaters and share stories around the fireplace. Loch Awe is nearby if you want to explore. There are also local standing stones and burial mounds a short drive away.

The nourishing food will be vegetarian, and cooked on site. There will be plenty of vegan options.

The entire retreat, including meals, is 850£. This includes yoga, food and accommodation. Transfers from Glasgow are not included, and will be arranged for you upon request.

 A 35% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your mat. Payment plans are available – please let me know if you need a plan and we will find away to accommodate you.

I am offering discounted private lessons to retreaters that can be booked with me upon arrival.

Big love,
