About the Event
Late Summer is a time for pause and preparation, for slowing down to create comfort and stability for the coming autumn and winter. As always we step into nature and connect with the atmosphere bringing all living things together, this season focusing on the earth itself, on grounding and centering.
We come together on Friday in our remote little bothy by the loch meeting as evening beckons. Gather around the fire and learn about the energy of the Late 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. 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. In late summer we celebrate the harvest time, and the particularly rich colours and flavours which surround us. On Sunday we leave after lunch with warm hearts and new friendships forged.
This is a deliberately small-scale female only experience limited to six spaces. 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.
