Unleash your creativity in a celebration of springtime with some yoga, art and walking.
Led by artist and yoga teacher Tracey Roberts, the week is focused around a playful and creative approach to movement, releasing tensions in the body to help you feel stronger, more relaxed and more confident. Whether you’re experienced in yoga or a complete beginner, you’ll be guided to respond intuitively to create your own unique sequence over the course of the week.
Alongside daily yoga, there’ll be meditation and pranayama (conscious breathing practices) and guided relaxations, guided walks and plenty of time for socialising and relaxing.
The Wellbeing Week is a chance to relax, have fun and take time for yourself in the wonderful setting of Halsway Manor, discovering and reconnecting with your sense of wellbeing. There will be plenty of opportunity to share with others and to find some quiet time for yourself.
Bring along your yoga mat (if you have one), comfortable yoga clothes, a journal or your sketch book and your walking boots, and be prepared to leave feeling calm, refreshed and ready to face the world again.
Who’s it For?
The yoga practices will be exploratory, mindful, nurturing and fun. We’ll explore yoga movement, breathing practices, relaxation and meditation. Everyone works at their own pace, so sessions are appropriate for beginners as well as those with an established practice. If you have any movement restriction or physical limitation please let us know before you book, so we can advise if the course is suitable for you.
The guided walks will be adapted as much as possible to meet the abilities of the group, but a reasonable fitness level is required as even short walks may include steep climbs. Car sharing may be necessary for some of the walks.
