Holy Mountain Yoga Retreat

At South Stack Coastal Retreats, Tan Y Cytiau, South Stack, Holyhead, Gwynedd, LL65 1YH

Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th March 2019

Step out of time for a weekend of yoga with experienced Forrest Yoga teacher Claire Mace. Enjoy lovingly crafted vegetarian meals and explore the ancient beauty of Mynydd Tŵr (known in English as Holyhead mountain). Return feeling recharged, inspired and connected to the wild landscape.

There will be three dynamic Forrest Yoga sessions, including 3-hour long sessions on the Saturday and Sunday mornings.  There will also be one Restorative Yoga session on the Saturday night to take you deep into relaxation.

The retreat takes place in a beautiful Arts and Crafts House built in 1915, next to the South Stack RSPB nature reserve, in an elevated location with spectacular views of the sea and mountains.  There will be time to explore on your own or to take a guided walk around the ancient power places of this sacred landscape.

Enjoy delicious and inspiring vegetarian meals made by Jules Cooper from foraged wild plants and locally sourced vegetables, plus ‘hedgerow teas’ throughout the weekend.

There’s a variety of accommodation options to suit all budgets.  All meals are included from dinner on the Friday to brunch on the Sunday.  Non-yoga partners are welcome to join us to enjoy the food and landscape.  Check in from 3pm on the Friday, departures after brunch on the Sunday around 1pm.
