UK Weekend Yoga Retreat

Personally, The Zest Life cannot think of a more perfect combination than yoga and wild swimming. One of their philosophies is to be inspired by the beauty of nature. What better way to connect with nature than to be in it. They have been swimming wild in Wales for years, and they love sharing their favorite swim locations, both sea and lakes, with you.

The Coach House is the largest property on the Plas Cadnant estate, accommodating up to 11 guests on two spacious floors with an impressive upstairs dining or sitting room with a large wood-burning stove. By night, candles, incense, and log fires create the perfect atmosphere for complete relaxation. Its wonderfully comfortable beds, crisp white linen, fresh flowers, views over rolling parkland, and piping hot power showers all make up the luxury and style of your weekend at this stunning country house.

The yoga space

Stroll through the walled garden and majestic wooden gates to the purpose-built oak framed building completed in 2012. The combination of lovingly handcrafted oak beams, high ceilings, and underfloor heating makes it the ideal space for yoga and mediation practice. With the peace and tranquility of the surrounding parkland, it is your sanctuary from the outside world. The Zest Life is not shy of a little alfresco yoga so be prepared when the sun is shining to get practicing your yoga outside.

Program

Over the retreat, you will experience and enjoy

  • Expert guidance to some of north Wales’ most beautiful wild swimming locations
  • Diving into crisp, clear waters, washing away all worries and stress
  • Warming up with herbal tea and wholesome cake, whilst listening to waves lapping against the shore
  • A variety of yoga sessions, more challenging sessions in the morning to more relaxing, meditative sessions in the evening
  • Healthy, detoxing, delicious meals each and every day
  • Soaking up the late summer sun in the beautiful gardens, relaxing with a good book

This retreat is always a sell-out, so come and experience this magical retreat for yourself.

The swims

The Zest Life tailors the swims to the groups’ requirements so depending on how everyone is feeling and what you fancy getting up to is where the group will go. It could be anything from breathtaking coastal swims, to floating about in lakes cradled by majestic mountains, to taking an active dip in some of the most stunning waterfalls Wales has to offer.

Either way, you will feel invigorated and empowered as you connect back to nature. Your every safety will be catered for and The Zest Life can provide as little or as much kit as you need. This weekend is suitable for all levels of swimming ability.
