Sunday

Home from home

Arrive at the world-renowned Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). Feel the weight lift from your shoulders as you take some time to settle into your home for the next few days. Your eco haven, nestled in the foothills of south Snowdonia. 

The area is surrounded by enchanting forests, flowing rivers and endearing mountains, making for the perfect backdrop as you unwind and let your worries drift away.

Tales under the stars

Once you’ve made yourself at home and explored the grounds, join us after dinner as our local storyteller recounts local tales and legends under the stars. The Dyfi valley has very little light pollution, so be sure to turn your head to the sky as you may spot the Plough (Ursa Major), North Star, Summer Triangle, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and of course the Milky Way.

Monday

Drop & give me zen

The first morning of your holistic wellness experience is a gentle guided yoga session. Roll out your mat and take it slow as you breathe, stretch and feel into the effects of your mindful movement. You’ll start each morning in this way, tuning into your body.

When you’re ready, enjoy a wholesome breakfast to fuel your body for the day ahead.

Be inspired

Take a guided tour of CAT, learning about the history of the unique site. Discover a hidden world of stunning organic gardens, experimental green buildings and  sustainably managed woodland habitats.

It’s impossible not to be inspired by the diversity of your surroundings and the ongoing sustainability practices, some of which you can take home with you.

Tea Time

Under guidance from a foraging expert use your senses to collect ingredients to make your own infusions. Learn all about the healing properties of your findings and what the best flavour combinations are. Once satisfied with your haul it’s time to brew and taste.

Food Glorious Food

Sit down for a delicious evening meal. Dining at CAT is a holistic experience; the menu is made up of ingredients grown in the centre’s own allotment or responsibly sourced from the local area. Without compromising on flavour your meals will leave you feeling healthful and recharged.

Inhale. Exhale. Sleep

Take some time to yourself, kick your feet up and unwind in front of the log fire after your first full day of your holistic wellbeing retreat in Wales. Or why not join us for another yoga session to wind down before you tuck yourself into bed. Your yoga guide will help you instil a sense of mindful relaxation, perfect for alleviating any tension or worries, allowing you to drift soundly to sleep.

Tuesday

Rise & shine

You’ll start your day with another guided yoga session. Yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body, which is exactly what this holistic wellness experience is all about.

Life is about balance

After fuelling your body with a delicious breakfast, take a transfer to Aberdyfi for your paddle boarding session. Aberdyfi is a thriving little harbour resort with a picturesque estuary perfect for watersports.

It’s time to zip up your wetsuit and head out onto the water with your boards for a peaceful paddle. Our local guide will be on hand to teach you the basics of stand up paddle boarding as you transfer your yoga balance and breathing techniques on to the water.

Calm the mind, body & spirit

This evening, you’ll have the opportunity to join the group for another yoga session before you retire to bed. The slow, deep stretching before bed will relieve any tension or aches in your body and allow you to completely relax before you drift into a deep and restful slumber.

Wednesday

Beneath the canopy

After a series of energising flows to increase your energy and a healthful breakfast, you’ll be ready to conquer your day.

Today’s hike takes you in a new direction as you venture out into the Dyfi forest. The deep colours, soft creaking branches overhead and rich smell of damp earth will ground you in the present.

Exploring further into the dense forest, take comfort in the tranquil stillness.

Be present

Gather with your retreat friends in the communal space for warming tea and cake. A chance to sit down together, connect and share stories. 

Join your group for a relaxing yoga session of breath work and stretches as you wind down before another night of deep sleep on your holistic wellness retreat.

 

Thursday

Powered by nature

After your morning sun salutations and a wholesome breakfast your group will move onto your next holistic sensory experience.

Awaken your senses

Let your senses guide you to the peaceful woodland on a guided sensory exploration experience. Notice the seasonal details and the aliveness of your natural environment. Under the supervision of your guide use your senses to describe what you see, hear, smell and touch. Feel a new sense of connection to the nature surrounding you.

Focus the mind

Join your yoga guide for one final evening of poses naturally designed to relax your body and mind, the perfect way to end your holistic wellness experience and focus on the present.

Friday

Enjoy your healthful breakfast on your final morning, before taking some time for yourself relaxing in the grounds or perhaps exploring the landscape one last time before you bid your home from home farewell. Swap phone numbers with your new-found friends and depart feeling re-energised and recharged.

Not only will you be taking home the incredible memories from your holistic wellbeing retreat, but also mindful yoga practices to incorporate into your everyday life, wholesome food inspiration and a deeper connection with nature.
