Wild Woman Nature Retreat   ACCESSIBILITY

“I love not man less, but nature more” - L. Byron

There's nothing more important, to both you and us, than your health and wellness. We believe in locating a sense of peace, creativity and happiness through bringing you to a clarified state where you can fully absorb nature.

There is a false dichotomy between man and nature. We are nature. Through yoga, meditation, and connecting to nature and animals we bring you full circle, away from the neurological noise, and invite you to heal; body, mind and soul.

While you are in the Lakes, there are a variety of wellness practices you will explore so that you can leave your worries, absorb the landscape and fall in love again, with yourself, your dear ones and the landscape.

The highlights of the retreat are:

  • 4 Yoga classes
  • Horse meditation
  • Wild swimming in stunning locations
  • Cacao ceremony
  • Bare-footing
  • Campfire circles
  • Delicious vegetarian meals
  • Dancing

The Accommodation

We can provide both shared and exclusive accommodation for your retreat. The cabins and yurts are cosy with wood burning stoves. With regards to sharing, we strongly encourage you to share. Part of the magic and growth that is experienced on retreats it that they bring people together to form strong and unshakable bonds.

Learning to share personal space is a huge step on the way to well being. The cult of the individual that has been driving western culture for centuries is at the root of our discontent. Community and togetherness are a key to happiness. Sharing space highlights our sharp corners and helps polish our characters.

*Full package includes all food drinks and workshops.
