Yr Ocar, the house you will stay in, is a secluded riverside haven at the head of the Nant Ffrancon valley. Sitting on the banks of Afon Galedffrwd, it is a traditional stone Welsh dwelling with a beautiful garden leading down to the river, beyond which there are river walks for you to explore at your own pace. The rooms provided are let on a twin basis, so if you book a single place you will be expected to share with one other participant.

    Cathy is a certified British Wheel of Yoga Instructor, traditional Thai massage therapist and also qualified to teach children’s yoga and mindfulness. She's been practicing yoga since 2004 and she gets more passionate about it the longer she practices. Yoga has brought so many positive changes (and people) into her life and the lessons learned on the mat are invaluable when faced with the realities of day-to-day living. To Cathy, the beauty of yoga is that it has something for everyone with age, level of fitness, and abilities mattering not a bit.

The retreat will take place at Snowdonia National Park in Wales, United Kingdom.

    "Cathy took my kids for a kids' yoga session recently and it was absolutely fantastic! Even Yogi bear enjoyed it. My kids were so excited and engaged with the story that they want more. I highly recommend a super way of getting your children to bond together and love each other rather than fighting and squabbling all the time. Your session was very enjoyable and therapeutic. Priceless for family bonding. Thank you."

    "Thank you Cathy Ibbotson for an excellent class this morning in Trefnant Village Hall. For me you got the balance spot on. You make me feel very at ease and comfortable with the class, no pressure to do the more tricky stuff and good variations to push your practice if you want to, you also have an empathy with your students."

    "I just wanted to tell you about Cathy at Source Yoga. She took a class today and it was fantastic! I highly recommend her as a very competent and passionate British Wheel of Yoga teacher. Her teaching style is relaxed and there is something magical about her teaching. You got to try it to believe it."
