You will be accommodated at EcoYoga Center, at at Inverliever Lodge. Nick and Rachel have created the EcoYoga Center as an expression of their belief in a healthy, happy, carbon free, and sustainable lifestyle. The transformation from an old outdoor center to its present incarnation as a luxurious but still genuinely ‘eco’ holiday experience, is now complete.
The EcoYoga Center is totally off-grid, powered by a 550 kilowatts hydro turbine and a large bank of solar panels. In the glazed studio, overlooking the gorge of the River Liever, you can learn the art of yoga from some of the finest yoga teachers in the world. The 60 square meters shala is purpose built with under floor heating and a very calming ambiance.
Your body can melt into the warmth of the floor during Savasana (deep relaxation at the end of a yoga practice), whilst the mind is gently soothed by the sounds of the nearby waterfalls. There are several bathing areas and showers to choose from. Inspired by the Japanese tradition of the ‘Sento’ or public bathing house, you can soak in the natural wooden hot tub in the Dome, or choose some hideaway bathing spots in the forest or river bank.
The artisan underground sauna is a real treat, perfect for warming up and relaxing those muscles. There are two cold plunge pools for cooling off, filled with water straight from the spring. The outdoor heated bathtubs are the ultimate in natural bathing and an experience not to be missed. It really is a magical opportunity to connect with nature and indulge your wild side.
There are 10 double rooms, each with an en-suite toilet and sink. There are two showers at either end of the building. There are also a converted bothies, with three double rooms and a toilet. The newest edition to the accommodation list is a state of the art yurt, with three single beds, each with a curtain for privacy.
Every room has a luxurious king size bed, organic fair trade cotton sheets and a choice of four pillows to choose from. A bed makes a big difference to your level of comfort. The rooms are all individually heated with electric heaters which are controlled by the guest. There are also two showers in the dome, with the hot tub, and another in the main house along with an indoor bath tub.
An excursion to local sacred sites is included in the price.
This retreat will take place just two and a half hours from Glasgow city center, yet in the secluded, remote highlands of Scotland, set in magnificent Scottish scenery, hills, lochs, rivers, and forests abound.
EcoYoga food comes straight from the organic garden when in season. They strive to serve the most delicious vegetarian dishes. The main dining room is used during larger retreats. The sun catching passive heating area is a great place to hang out, to read, or chat with fellow guests.
Meal times are fun and sociable, with the whole group sitting down together for meals. As much fresh produce is used from the garden as possible, depending on the season, and all of the meals are vegetarian, with options for vegan and wheat or diary free. They have eggs from their own hens, which are used for breakfast and quite simply delicious. Local smoked or un-smoked fish is available for guests to cook in the guest kitchen if they would like a meat option.
During your free time you can read and relax, got to the hot springs, or use the natural wooden hot tub, underground sauna, cold pools, and outdoor bathtubs. You may also book a massage at an extra cost.

Massages at the EcoYoga Center are offered by Bettina Vittoria. She is trained as a therapeutic massage therapist in Glasgow in 1989, and since then worked in her own practice, in hotels, and with other practitioners in their clinics.
Over the years, whilst working with many different patients and their health problems, she have developed her own massage techniques, based on the Swedish therapeutic massage she was trained in, incorporating hot stones, deep tissue massage, and working on trigger points. Originally from Switzerland, Bettina has lived in Argyll for 29 years.
She had planned to come here just for a short spell to learn English, but fell in love with the beautiful landscape, the open spaces, and the sea. And of course, a few years later, with a man. Like many people here, she has various jobs, from teaching assistant to lumberjack, but she find her work as a massage therapist the most satisfying and rewarding. Massages cost 50 GBP per session.
