Following the sold out Spring Retreat 2023, I’m delighted to present, in partnership with the lovely people at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre, the Yoga Sutras Retreat 2023.

Friday 8th – Sunday 10th September 2023

Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre, Llanystumdwy, Cricieth, Gwynedd LL52 0LW

The Yoga Sutras, the foundational text of classical yoga, refers to an eight-limb path, which offers guidance on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. Over the course of this weekend, we’ll explore and apply this practical wisdom over seven sessions of asana, pranayama and meditation.

As well as a total of seven yoga, pranayama and meditation sessions, there will be free time for you to explore the local area: a stroll along the banks of the Dwyfor, a visit to the nearby beautiful seaside town of Cricieth with its glorious views over Cardigan Bay (and maybe go for a swim), or sample a stretch of the Welsh Coastal Path.

Accommodation is at Tŷ Newydd Writing Centre in the charming village of Llanystumdwy on the banks of the river Dwyfor, with sessions taking place in the village hall in Llanystumdwy, a five minute stroll down a leafy lane.

This weekend retreat is suitable for all levels, including absolute beginners.

Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment using this link.
