Yoga Retreat: Reclaim Breath, Presence and Power
Saturday 24th – Tuesday 27th July 2021
£797 (single ensuite room). Only 5 spaces left.
Join Sandra Robinson and Claire Mace at beautiful North Wales retreat centre Trigonos for a yoga retreat all about giving yourself the space and time to reclaim your sense of choice and inner power.
There was so much change in 2020, and so much yet to come in 2021.
It can be hard to know where you’re at: what with the ever-changing rules, the risks of Covid-19, and the increased sense of isolation or confinement.
In body psychology, the ‘inner authority’ is the part of you that feels empowered to make choices in life.
This 4 day, 3 night retreat is all about giving yourself the space and time to reclaim your sense of choice and inner power.
There will be a mixture of stronger yoga practices and gentler Restorative yoga practices on offer, along with optional walks and activities.
- RECLAIM precious space and time for you
- EMPOWERING yoga practices at your level
- DELICIOUS plant-based food to nourish your entire being
One of North Wales foremost retreat venues, the clean and comfortable environment at Trigonos is conducive to giving you permission to deeply rest, relax and unwind.
Accommodation for this retreat will be in single ensuite rooms in the historic Plas Baladeulyn house or the newly finished Dol Gwydion wing.
The Trigonos site is right by the edge of the Nantlle lake, and surrounded by the epic splendour of the mountains of Snowdonia.
Trigonos’ chefs are legendary: the vegetarian and vegan food is always inspiring and nourishing.
