Full Description

Many people live with ongoing stress, anxiety or worry, whether it is front-of-mind, or subtly present in the background. How can you change your relationship and reactions to the stressors of work, family, expectations and information overload, so you can live a more easeful life

During this yoga retreat with Sandra Robinson and Claire Mace you will be encouraged to unplug, down-regulate your nervous system, recharge your batteries, and explore Being at Ease. Everything is optional: if you find that what you need to do is sleep, you are welcome to do so.

In the mornings you will experience three hour Forrest yoga sessions with different levels of challenge on offer, so you can explore how to find ease amid intensity.

If you enjoy walking, you can join an afternoon hike up past waterfalls to the ancient hill fort of Dinas Emrys, a site famously associated with many Welsh legends including that of Myrddin (Merlin) and the warring dragons. There will be other sessions on offer for soothing and down-regulating the nervous system, including Restorative yoga, storytelling in the library, and a tea ceremony featuring local plants and herbs.

Trigonos is one of North Wales’ loveliest retreat venues, set amid the stunning Snowdonia scenery. The rooms are comfortable and the chefs are exceptional: you will enjoy healing, nourishing food, much of it locally grown and organic.
