All inclusive 3 night retreat in beautiful Lasswade

Imagine taking some time for yourself to just be.

Imagine creating space in your life for you.

Join us this Autumn to gather your energies, prepare yourself for winter and prioritise your own needs. As life shifts, changes and evolves, so do your needs so gift yourself the time to be still, to breathe, to reset and evolve.

Join Nerys Donaldson and Gary Blackwood for a few days of relaxation, coaching, gentle chiropractic (no audible adjustments, just rebalancing), yoga and meditation. Learn ways to create space and find moments to gather yourself for the coming months. If you are struggling to find the time to take care of yourself or are confused about how best to maintain your health from day to day. Find what simple, effective forms of self-care resonate with you and how to integrate them into your daily life to rebalance more and struggle less.

Let us create a warm and welcoming space for you to rest and relax.

Think about what YOU need…

With nothing else demanding your attention, you will be free to focus on you. Whether  you want to gather yourself for the coming months, consider what the next year holds for you or simply sit and breath, this is your opportunity to simply be. Leave feeling grounded, de-stressed, centred and with your energies gathered.
