Autumn at Halsway is a time of mists and mellow fruitfulness, as we gather in our energies ready for the dark nights. Led by Tracey Roberts, come and share in some yoga, meditation and deeply nourishing relaxation in the cosiness of log fires and good company. With some walking and creative playing in the breathtaking landscape of the Quantock Hills and coastline and a chance to release your voice and enjoy some singing together!
Wellbeing is about learning to pay more attention to our mind and body and the world around us. Each day we’ll explore our inner and outer worlds, playing with the natural rhythms of silence and sound, movement and stillness.
As always at Halsway, there’ll be a warm welcome, good nourishing food, time to relax in the bar by an open fire, space to be quiet and time to make new friends.
Bring a yoga mat (if you have one), loose comfortable layers for the yoga, and sturdy walking boots and outdoor clothes for the walks. If you enjoy writing or sketching, bring some materials with you as there’ll be opportunities to respond to the landscapes we explore, with easy activities to join in with if you’re a complete beginner.
All the sessions are optional, so you can do as much or as little as you want. Beginners to yoga are very welcome.
The focus is on fun and having time and space to be playful, creative, to learn new things and to explore wellbeing as both an individual and shared experience.
Who’s it For?
The yoga practices will be exploratory, mindful, nurturing and fun. Everyone works at their own level, so sessions are suitable for all, from beginners to those with an established practice. We’ll explore yoga movements, breathing practices, relaxation techniques and meditation.
The afternoon walks will be fun and tailored to meet the requirements and abilities of the group, but a reasonable fitness level is required as even short walks may include steep climbs. Car sharing will be necessary for some of the walks.
The vocal warm-up and singing sessions are designed to encourage the complete beginners amongst us, and to enjoy having a go!
