About the Event

Early Summer is about connection and space and there's both in abundance at our wee both retreat. We step into nature and connect with the atmosphere bringing all living things together. 

We come together on Friday in our remote little bothy by the loch meeting as evening beckons. Sit around the firepit and learn about the energy of the Early Summer Yoga and Qi Gong practices. Enjoy a tasty seasonal supper and spend the night together sharing experiences, reflecting on the flames. Enjoy a little outdoor relaxing yoga and meditation before bed.

Each morning we'll start with an outdoor yoga class to set us up for the day followed by a nutritious delicious breakfast together.  Our day will be abundant with a variety of mindful activity - wandering by the loch or wild simming in it, Qi Gong and meditation, time for journalling, and a light satisfying seasonal lunch.   We hope to have an optional additional StandUp Paddleboard session available for those who would like to spend time on the water.  The area has a wealth of wildlife and stunning scenery for those interested in more ambitious walking or photography or just being alive in nature. Tea and cake in the afternoons with some private time to wander the area or do whatever takes your fancy.

Supper is around the table in the bothy, a meal shared and a relaxing evening yoga class to ready us for bed.  On Sunday we leave after lunch with warm hearts and new friendshps forged.

This is a deliberately small-scale female only experience with only six spaces available. Bothy events are fully catered with seasonal food and drink (no alcohol). You will need a sleeping bag, pillow and appropriate clothing. A full kit list is provided for you before the event. Bothy events are suitable for all levels of fitness and beginners to yoga are welcome as well as those looking to further their practice.  

Meet at 6pm on Friday evening and finish at 2pm on Sunday afternoon.   The cost for the event is £250, and we ask you to pay deposit of £50 on booking. This deposit will be non refundable if you cancel and we cannot fill your spot. If we are able to fill the place, we will refund your deposit, less a £10 charge to cover our costs. You will be invoiced for the balance 3 weeks before the event.
