Why a walking and activity retreat may suit you?

Designed to grasp in the greatness of the great outdoors, walking and activity retreats features activities such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and others. Amble across plush green hilltops or head further afield around traditional estate grounds and gardens to let nature free the spiritual mind and heal the physical body.

Walking and activity retreats are a healthy approach to restoring a psychophysical balance and for regaining composure and clarity, which can sometimes go forgotten. Autonomy is a form of comfort yet breaking free from being wrapped in a routine of daily repetition can seem impossible, causing cloudy thoughts, loss of direction and conflicted emotions. This is why programmes for walking and activity retreats are focused on activities spent with nature as it has a natural healing power to soothe the mind, releasing the physical body from taut tensions and foreign feelings.

Types of walking and activity retreats

Yoga Retreats

Take a weekend break to rejuvenate the mind and body and to improve your yoga practice on a yoga retreat held in the stunning natural landscapes in a tucked away countryside corner or a traditional terracotta-tiled townhouse. Not only is a yoga retreat ideal for those wishing to improve their handstand or challenge a new twist, it is also a great option for those who have been wanting to give yoga a trying hand or just to try something new. Feel transformed, refreshed and revitalised at the end of each programme.

Island Retreats

Escape the city to rediscover the beauty of nature on an Island retreat. Soft, golden sand, washing jewel-blue waves against craggy coastal cliffs and unending rays of sunshine, take a solo stroll along the beach to let the soothing sensations of water cleanse the mind and soul before engaging in energising workouts and activities to strengthen and improve the physical body.
