For sea and yoga-lovers seeking to find some inner calm, this weekend cannot be beaten. The venue sits on the coast just behind the Pembrokeshire coast path. From the site, you can walk along the coast in either direction to beaches and rocky inlets, or into St. Davids with its beautiful cathedral, making it the smallest city in the UK. Be sure to bring your bathing suit (or prepare to go wild) as the clear sea waters are likely to tempt you. The place will blow you away.
St Non’s offers simple single and twin rooms, all with shared bathrooms. They are basic, comfortable, and clean. There is a well stocked library, adjoining the large living room with an unending supply of tea! The dining room gives exceptional views to the coast. The yoga space is a simple but light-filled room with high windows facing the coast.
This retreat provides periods of silence, and an opportunity to extend the mindfulness practice into daily life. The simple venue of St. Non’s is the perfect place to reconnect with yourself, expect peace, comfort and simplicity.
Kat’s Hatha Flow teaching incorporates a dynamic flow of physical yoga postures with breath awareness, before slowing down with more static postures, meditation and relaxation. This is suitable for new students to yoga as well as those with more experience. Kat offers modifications and adjustments where needed so that each student can fully experience the postures being taught and can participate at their own ability. She encourages students to practice with awareness and within the range of movement available to them to provide a safe, relaxing and inclusive environment.
The yoga schedule is fairly full as you only have two days. But it won’t be relentless hard work. There will be plenty of opportunity for gentle relaxation.
The practice will help you to enjoy a period of being unhurried by external pressures. So that you can slow down and enjoy the simple things - a tasty meal, a beautiful view, a deep breath, moving the body. There are periods of silence to enable this process - with speech comes another process to engage the mind, in its absence there is an opportunity for greater clarity and calm.
The schedule may be adapted to suit the needs of the group. There will be some free time and optional walks along the coast.
St Non’s offers a very special opportunity to switch off from busy daily life. Hosted by nuns in a retreat center, at a location that has been sacred site for centuries, there is an atmosphere of deep calm and contemplation at the venue. The location is stunning and the property itself is comfortable rather than luxurious.

The food is lovingly provided by the chef at the venue and is delicious, vegetarian fare. There are plenty of salads, fruits and tasty, traditional vegetarian food (and plenty of it). Bristol City Yoga is, unfortunately, not able to cater for many complex food needs on this retreat (please ask if you need to).
You will approach a one-way system in St. Davids. As you drive past monument bear left - down the hill. Take the first left towards St. Nons Chapel and the Warpool Court Hotel (a very narrow road). The green across indicates that you have to make a left turn onto the road which leads to the St. Nons centre.
It will be a half-hour drive from Fishguard Harbour.
The nearest train stations are Haverford West and Fishguard.
