4 Day Restorative Resilience Booster Winter Yoga Retreat in Wales, UK

Dyffryn House 61 Water Street Kidwelly Carmarthenshire SA17 5BX, Wales, UK

Women Yoga and Wellness Retreat UK

The essence of the Winter 2020 retreat is focusing on women's' mind, body, and soul in the Autumn, a time of rest and restoration in the wake of Covid-19. It has been designed with love and care so all three elements combined will be given time and attention and the result is a relaxed, re-focused, reconnected, and vibrant you. The program offers a unique opportunity to experience deep relaxation, learn about and practice meditation, enjoy gentle Hatha yoga, walk in nature, connect with your true values in the group sessions and be nourished and cleansed with delicious homemade organic meals throughout your stay in our stunning country house set in its own private grounds. You will return to your daily life with the knowledge and tools to make a positive change for the long term feeling fully refreshed. Ideal for women in their 40's plus (and all the hormones that go with that!) who feel like they never stop, or who are at a crossroads in life, have relationship issues, feel taken for granted or have forgotten who they really are or who just need some time out to reconnect and relax. This will give you energy, clarity, and confidence when you return home and the tools to keep up what you have learned.

The combination of all the carefully selected elements of this spring retreat will help still the chatter of your busy mind, help you connect deeply with your true self, and offer you a chance to restore and refresh in a way only possible when time is taken purely for this reason.

Meditation and true rest along with the breathing exercises will strengthen your immune system and help your wellbeing simultaneously calming your nervous system. You will become more aware of the true wonderful you, and this, in turn, will bring a sense of self-love and gratitude that in your busy lives is often neglected. This awareness and reconnection will help leave self-doubt and insecurities behind as you move forward with your life.

Inner confidence will start to blossom as we sow these seeds with you, and you begin to recognize the true good and kindness in your heart. You will take away from the retreat a sense of happiness in yourself, contentment and confidence recognized and nurtured allowing your future path to open up, and relationships to flourish.

Mind Body and Soul Women's Retreats also offer you some helpful tools and signposts to help you stay focused on the things you have learned and those that have helped you.

Having time to carefully consider what truly makes you heart sing and doing more of those things is something you can gift to yourself and then use in your everyday life to restore balance and peace.

Taking time out from the busy chatter and demands of everyday modern life, opening your heart and mind to new ideas and having new experiences with other wonderful women may be the exact experience you need to help guide you on your true path being your best you.

Here is what is in store for the retreat:

  • A very warm welcome to everyone to put everyone at ease and get to know each other
  • The retreat includes a two-hour gentle Hatha yoga and meditation session which is concluded with a deeply relaxing asana, alignment and breathwork - led by Anavrin this is suitable for all abilities even if you have never done yoga before. This is a wonderful experience with attendees writing to tell us how much it relaxed and restored them fully.
  • Group session on 'My Map/Your Map', a real insight into beliefs, values, and identity coupled with how you communicate and make yourselves 'heard'. This session really helps identify all the good in every unique individual, helps you value yourselves and aids better communication and confidence for anyone struggling with anxiety. Very informal and fun but uniquely beneficial for those joining in. Touches on mindfulness and intention setting/gratitude and can help relieve anxiety and stress. Learning during the retreat to hit the 'Pause' will be invaluable when you return to your everyday life challenges and you realize you can manage challenges more positively and calmly.
  • A talk/discussion on rest and the Art of Rest - what does “rest” really mean and how can it help you? You may be surprised at what you learn. Curious? Fab, come and join in.
  • A guided beach Walk in stunning Ferryside listening mindfully to the sounds the gulls and smelling the fresh salty air, listening to the roar of the waves and feeling the wind in your hair, stress dissolving and leaving you feeling at peace and happy to be alive at this moment. Walking barefoot in the sand and connecting to Mother Nature is blissful and awakens your soul
  • Mind Body and Soul Women's Retreats has planned a stunning country walk to get out in green nature, be invigorated by the elements and blow away the cobwebs, see the snowdrops and daffodils in full bloom, spot birds and creatures with interest and build an appetite for the yummy food provided all weekend.
  • Mind Body and Soul Women's Retreats invites you to evening socialization and debate/chats for those who want to, or quiet reflection time in your comfy, clean and lovely room if you prefer - it’s all your choice as this is time for YOU.
  • Use of private hot tub included for anytime.
  • All homemade organic and locally sourced (where possible) meals and accommodation in light and comfy twin rooms or king-size if you prefer.

Additional information

To contribute to Gratitude jars and to receive one, this is a novel idea where all women have a jar with their name on for arrival and are asked to notice wonderful and positive things about each other and fill each other’s jars with these thoughts privately.

Everyone then has a beautiful jar filled with confidence-boosting, wonderful words from all the people they’ve just met. The feedback on this has been phenomenal as it's given people a huge lift after the retreat and whenever they need a boost!

Included excursions

On day 2, at 10:30 a.m., you will go on an excursion to nearby Ferryside where the yoga, meditation, and breathwork element of the retreat is held.
