Whether you are new to yoga or have been practising for a while this retreat gives the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in precious 'ME TIME', peaceful yoga & silence so you deepen your connection and understanding of yourself through the practice of yoga in its many forms. Opportunities for walking & exploring the beautiful Elan Valley and its history is an easy step outside the friendly 3* Country Hotel, 5* Food Hygiene Award, Elan Valley Hotel.
The valleys and Victorian dams are a spectacular mixture of man-made architecture and natural beauty – located in one of the few places in Britain where it is still possible to roam a wild landscape all day in virtual solitude. This is a paradise for walking, pony trekking, watching birds, fishing, photography and mountain biking. Rhayader, a thriving market town, is approximately two miles away and offers a variety of shops, pubs, cafes, a recreational centre and an arts venue. The Elan Valley Visitor Centre is within comfortable walking distance and hosts an exhibition detailing the construction of the Dams.
