The Retreater

Yoga & Plant Based Cookery Retreat, Tywyn

About The Retreat

A 4 day retreat featuring yoga, meditation, sound healing and plant based cookery workshops to nurture your body and soul πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ Take time out for yourself (with a friend perhaps?) and accept our invitation to move slowly, rest quietly, and be held by the peaceful surroundings of our beautiful chapel venue. You will be nourished with wholesome food and good company, and nurtured with gentle yoga and meditation. Kate will assist your journey to go deeper into different practices like Hatha and Restorative Yoga. Meditation, Mantras, Yoga Nidra, Sound Healing, journaling and so much more. Catherine will be providing delicious vegan food for every meal, including some you have prepared yourself during your Cookery Workshops with her. If you haven't experienced a fully plant-based menu before, this is an ideal opportunity to learn about the variety of foods (both sweet and savoury!) that you can enjoy. You will receive recipes to take home so that you can continue your plant-based learning when you get home from your retreat. This retreat is ideal for anyone who enjoys yoga at any level and wants to learn about plant-based cooking, healthy eating, and mindful living πŸ™
