A DAY RETREAT TO NURTURE YOU….
We know that movement, breathwork, wild swimming and human connection are vital for our health and wellbeing.
So what happens when we combine all of these elements?
How about joy, vitality, lightness and an elevated sense of wellbeing.
There is no denying the potential healing power of ‘wild swimming’ from increasing our resilience, managing anxiety, boosting mental clarity, reducing muscular aches and pains and inflammation through tto that wonderful sense of achievment and euphoria that ‘you’ve done it’!
It is no exageration to say that I hold outdoor swimming so close to my heart for having taken me by the hand and guiding me throuogh a particularly rocky terrain in my own life. Its like it shakes you up, rubs the sleep from your eyes and reminds you that you are here, you are alive and lifes rich tapestry is to be wholly felt and expereinced!
So it gives me the greaest pleasure to offer you this veryy special and unique opportunity to connect to nature, connect to joy, our bodies and breath through the healing practice of yoga and ‘wild swimming’. We will gather together and pracitce yoga waterside followed by swimming in a natural swimming pond set in the most glorious of surruoundings.
Wether you are a seasoned outdoor swimmer , have tried it once or your simply curious, this is for you! And of course, if you decide you’d rather just danlge your feet and then recline in one of the pond-side deckchairs then that is also a beautiful nurturing option.
Crafts Hill Barn. Once a working farm, has been lovingly restored with the Victorian granary and outbuildings transformed into unique spaces to stay overninght.
But what makes this space even more magical are the five acres that it sits in and the beautiful natural wild swimming pond. that sits nesstled amongst the trees. and nature.
we will be greeted at Crafts Hill Barn with tea/coffee and vegan flapjack, before moving into an outside yoga practice/workshop in the meadow where we will explore the idea of joy, ease and vitality and how we can cultivate these qualities in our everyday life as we travese through the challenges of midlife and modern day living.
This will be followed by the chance for you to take a dip in the natural swimming pond and while away a littel time absorbing the suns rays by the waters edge. (if you journal or paint it iis a beautiul spot to let your creative juices unfurl)
A delicous lunch of seasonal grazing platters (vegetarian & vegan options) , home baked bread and cake will then be served in the meadow to round of our time togther.
Throughout the day we will have exclusive use of the pigsty and cabin to change/ sit/ connect. It really will be the most lovely self-nurturing day.
Spaces are strictly limited so as we can create an intimate and trusting space.
I so look forward to sharing this very special event with you.
