Life has a funny way of throwing you off course sometimes but I am a great believer that when it all suddenly comes together - the time is right for that something special to happen.
It has taken me almost 15 months to get everything in place for this retreat to the Brecon Beacons and the fantastic Tall John's House. What better time to go there than when Spring has sprung. This 3 night Find Balance retreat is about leaving winter behind and giving our mind and body a spring boost. The combination of energetic morning yoga and slower mindful evening practices are perfect to shift those sluggish systems into gear and rid yourself of the stresses and strains our frantic pace of life can bring.
Although grand and elegant Tall John's oozes an atmosphere of homely cosiness. All meals are freshly prepared and every effort is made to use locally sourced and locally produced ingredients. A healthy breakfast, wholesome lunches and dinner is included in the retreat price. Plus, I love that cake suddenly appears each afternoon on the main hall table, along with tea or coffee. Plates stacked to the side ready for you to cut a slice and enjoy sitting by the fireside or on a window seat in one of the beautiful reception rooms. The beds are comfortable, the towels fluffy, the staff always on hand to ensure your needs are fully met. I cannot wait to use the newly renovated old barn for our twice daily yoga practices. It is an amazing space, bright and airy for the morning and the lighting can be adjusted to create a tranquil setting for evening.
Outside nature waits for you to explore - bird sanctuaries, walks, hikes, wildlife, rivers & local communities. Stay closer to your weekend home from home and wander round the grounds and walled garden of Tall John's. Have a sauna or find a quiet spot to relax and read. Angela Cox of Health- Healing and Happiness will also be available for you to book a facial, massage or other holistic treatment.
