June 23rd-25th & September 1st-3rd 2017 | 2 day

3 DAY RETREAT SEPTEMBER 22nd – 25th 2017 CLICK HERE

Personally we cannot think of a more perfect combination than Yoga and Wild swimming. One of our philosophies is “be inspired by the beauty of nature”. What better way to connect with nature than to be in it.  We have been swimming wild in Wales for years and now its time to share that with you, as we mix it into our luxury yoga retreats. Over the course of the weekend you will experience and enjoy

  • Expert guidance to some of North Wales’ most beautiful wild swimming locations.
  • Diving into crisp, clear waters, washing away all worries and stress.
  • Warming up with a herbal tea and wholesome cake, whilst listening to waves lapping against the shore.
  • A variety of yoga sessions, more challenging sessions in the morning to more relaxing, meditative sessions in the evening.
  • Healthy, detoxing, delicious meals each and every day.
  • Soaking up the late summer sun in the beautiful gardens, relaxing with a good book.

So what are you waiting for? Come and experience this magical retreat with us, the water is warm and waiting for you.

“My favourite part was to get in to the freezing water and later to experience the pleasant feeling putting on the robe and having a warm soup. The whole weekend experience was truly unique and memorable. ” Jane, Glasgow

The Location

Our weekends take place at Plas Cadnant. A stylish, secluded country house on the Isle of Anglesey, nestled in 21 acres of private parkland, which gathers together for your pleasure; stunning views over Snowdon, a meandering river, magical waterfalls, world renowned historic gardens, lazy meadows, mature woodland and a new oak framed building perfect for yoga sessions. Described as one of the most amazing retreats on the Isle of Anglesey.

The Coach house is the largest property on the Plas Cadnant estate, accommodating up to 11 guests on two spacious floors with an impressive upstairs dining /sitting room with large wood burning stove. By night, candles, incense and log fires create the perfect atmosphere for complete relaxation. Its wonderfully comfortable beds, crisp white linen on deep down duvets, fresh flowers, views over rolling parkland and piping hot power showers all make up the luxury and style of your weekend at this stunning country house.

 

 

Yoga Space at Plas CadnantZestlifeThe Yoga Space

Stroll through the walled garden, and majestic wooden gates to the purpose built oak framed building completed in 2012. The combination of lovingly hand crafted oak beams, high ceilings and under floor heating, make it the ideal space for yoga and mediation practice. With the peace and tranquility of the surrounding parkland, it is your sanctuary from the outside world. We are not shy of a little alfresco yoga, so be prepared when the sun is shining, to get practising your yoga outside.

We tailor the swims to the groups’ requirements. So depending on how everyone’s feeling and what you fancy getting up to, depends on where we go. It could be anything from breathtaking coastal swims, to floating about in lakes cradled by majestic mountains, to taking an active dip in some of the most stunning waterfalls Wales has to offer.  Either way, you will feel invigorated and empowered as you connect back to nature. Your every safety will be catered for and we can provide as little or as much kit as you need. This weekend is suitable for all levels of swimming ability. Go to our team to see more about your guides.
