NEW: WINTER WOODLAND WELLNESS GETAWAY

CREATE HEALTH WITH ME IN THE RURAL WOODED ENVIRONMENT AND MAGICAL WATERFALLS OF ST NECTAN’S GLEN

I found this place one short month ago and now I can’t wait to get back (and take you with me!)… so no messing around, let’s do this. Join me from Friday November 23 to Monday November 25 for ….

A fully immersive wellness retreat designed to help you unwind, relax and align your body, mind and spirit to nature’s natural rhythms.

St Nectan’s Glen off the coast of North Cornwall is nature’s perfect getaway. To reach this magical place we adventure on foot into the depths of a lush wooded valley, guided by the sound of the sacred waterfalls ahead.

The Retreat and Yoga Studio sit within the tree canopy, surrounded by 14 acres of native woodland. This area has been appointed a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It’s simply breathtaking.

Immerse into a four-day programme of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda and discover a complete science of balanced living.

As you eliminate your daily stress and find a more natural rhythm, your mind and body can begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality and happiness.

It’s all to experience – and all in the tree-tops of St Nectan’s Glen.

LOCATION: NATURE AT ITS BEST

St Nectan’s Glen has long been regarded as a sacred and magical place and is the perfect environment for an unforgettable yoga and wellness retreat.

At it’s heart is the Waterfall. The water falls 60 feet (18 metres) emerging through a naturally formed round hole in the rock where it surges into a shallow pool at the base of a dark gorge, before flowing gently between high walls covered with ferns and trees.

It is situated midway between Tintangel, fabled as King Arthur’s birthplace and the village of Boscastle famous for it’s Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. This magical and secluded valley cuts deep into the landscape, as the river Trevillet which is its lifeblood, rushes to the sea. Enchanting falls and cascades burble gently through dark slate and sparking granite, travelling first through woodland and then into the more open Rocky Valley, which is renowned for two mysterious labyrinth carvings on the cliff walk.

This mysterious and beautiful place has long been a place of pilgrimage for anyone wanting to experience the majesty and power of nature, the remarkable history of the landscape and to discover what is ‘sacred’ to them. I can’t wait to share this place with you!

AND BEFORE YOU GO A WORD ON…

What is yoga?
The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning union. More than an exercise routine, yoga is a complete science of balanced living and a path to higher knowledge and joyful abundance.
