The Full Story
Swim Yoga Retreats
Think yoga retreats are for bendy people who take themselves very seriously? Think again! Our swim yoga retreats are fun and informal, with plenty of cake and maybe even a trip to the pub. Amy and I specialise in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere where you can give as much or as little of yourselves as you like.
Amy leads the yoga and relaxation session on our retreat days.
After rather quickly realising the lack of body representation and inclusivity in regular yoga classes, Amy decided to dedicate herself to her practise and study Yoga in India, here gaining her 200hr teacher training qualification. Over the years, Amy has studied with groundbreaking yoga teachers who advocate for accessible yoga and inclusivity whilst also gaining qualifications in Yin, Yoga for trauma and Yoga Nidra.
Our yoga sessions are gentle, beginning with a grounding element where we explore some breathing practices, giving ourselves some time to arrive and settle into the day ahead, then we begin to move slowly and mindfully, all lead with guidance from Amy and with plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the postures, you can decide what feels good and right for you. Rest is always an option and is encouraged throughout the yoga session.
Amy is a qualified open water lifeguard, with many mountain miles under her belt to support and encourage participants in all areas of our retreats.
Suzanna (that's me) leads our swimming.
The second element of our day retreat is walking. After loosening up with a yoga session, and fuelling on cake, we head out into the Lake District on a walk designed to compliment both the yoga and the swim.
