Saturday 23rd September 2023 10am-5pm

What stops you doing the things you want to do, achieving what you want to achieve, going where you want to go?

Sometimes it’s the judge within, “No! You aren’t good enough, ready enough, smart enough, thin enough! You’re wrong, you’re a failure, you can’t do it!”

Often we are so mean to ourselves: we are our own worst enemy internally.

The transformation begins, counterintuitively, with learning to listen to your own inner critic.

Taking the judging aspect of your psyche from unconsciousness to awareness, then changing your relationship to it so you are not controlled and limited by it.

Through learning more about your inner critic, everybody can find a lot of change, growth and transformation.

Our September Retreat Day with Claire Mace is dedicated to Dissolving Judgement.

GROUNDING yoga and somatic practices

GENTLE journaling and process work

ENJOY a lovely lunch and beautiful surroundings

We’ll be gathering at Trigonos, which is one of our favourite retreat venues in North Wales.

We’ll be keeping it gentle: all the retreat day activities are optional.

There won’t be a live-stream option as this is deep work best done in person.

Join us for just £99 (or £69 if you are in the Inspiratrix Yoga membership). There are only 10 places.


Yoga teacher, trainer, singer and storyteller Claire Mace is based in North Wales. She is deeply moved by this ancient landscape and the power of nature. Her gift is in creating safe space for people to become more embodied, and therefore better able to move through the world.  She runs yoga classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings that guide students to practice where they are at, working at their edge compassionately, no matter what their age, weight or flexibility.


When should I arrive? Arrive from 9.30am for a cup of tea and we’ll begin at 10am.

When do we finish? We should finish around 5pm.

How do I get there? The address is: Trigonos, Nantlle, Gwynedd, LL54 6BW. There is ample free parking on site.

I have a food allergy, will I be able to eat the food? The kitchen at Trigonos are very experienced at providing inspiring and nourishing vegetarian or vegan food to meet your needs. Please let us know when booking if you have any allergies, issues or requirements we need to know about. 

What if I can’t come because of COVID? We recommend you have travel insurance to cover you in case you have to cancel due to a positive Covid test, as we will be unable to refund you.

Can I stay at Trigonos? This mini-retreat does not include accommodation. If you want to stay over at Trigonos, accommodation can be booked directly with them: 01286 882388 or info@trigonos.org

Can I swim in the Nantlle lake? Yes, but it would be at your own risk: neither Trigonos, Inspiratrix Yoga, or North Wales Retreats can accept liability if you go swimming.
