Overview

Yoga Retreat Wales

  • 3 days with instruction
  • Join The Holistic Coach House on this yoga and meditation retreat in Wales. The intention of this weekend retreat is to improve your feelings of well-being, and assist you in inviting peace through meditations, simple yoga sessions to allow the body to gently unravel and bring about feelings of well-being, and Yogic chants. It is said the vibration of the sound, the words and intention of the chant, can have a positive effect on the mind and body. Come and experience for yourself. Anyone is welcome, whether you have practiced yoga or meditation previously, or not.

    Noddfa is the name of the center run by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Mary. The Welsh word noddfa means refuge, a place of welcome and peace, a place where you can regain energy. Hopefully, all the groups who come here will experience the spirit of noddfa in the comfort of the house and the beauty of the surrounding hills and the sea.

    The center is located on the North Wales coast in a village called Penmaenmawr. It welcomes groups and individuals from England, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as other parts of Wales. Rooms are single but shared rooms are available on request. Bathrooms are shared, usually between two rooms.

    The retreat includes some gentle yoga ( beginners welcome). The intention set on this retreat is to promote body awareness rather than 'achieving' positions. There will be some mindfulness meditation practice; again this is fine for anyone who has never meditated or for experienced practitioners. There will also be some chanting (and a perfect voice is not required!). On the last retreat, the participants really enjoyed the few chanting sessions included and for this reason, this retreat will include a little more chanting.

    Yogic sleep, also known as yoga Nidra will also be practiced. Yoga Nidra is good to promote relaxation, rest and healing. There will likely be a Yin yoga session which is suitable for anyone. Yin yoga promotes joint mobility and is also quite meditative. It helps to slow down thoughts and bring about body awareness. There will be some free time on the Saturday from lunch, for three hours. This will allow you to do whatever you wish whether it is some quiet time reading or taking a walk to the beach which is 5- 10 minutes away. There are also 2 labyrinths at Noddfa if you wish to explore them. However, no one is obliged to attend all of the sessions.

    Testimonials

    • Review by Margaret Mines from England

      "Thank you for your hospitality and treatment, Jill. I just want to let you know I spoke with mum about railways; it turns out that my grandad worked on railways and my dad lived at a railway house for a time, so you were right with your picture link. Thanks again."

      "The gem essence course was very useful, both for crystals that can and cannot be used in essence. I highly recommended it if you are considering attending the workshop. I even brought a sample home to try! Thank you, Jill!"
