Switching off from normal life will be a cinch during this weekend that blends easy guided walking in the gloriously peaceful foothills of Snowdonia with beginners’ yoga sessions. Our weekend is based in the comfortable surroundings of our guesthouse.In a nutshell:
- Unwind with two nights in a warm and cosy guesthouse located in the heart of Snowdonia National Park
- De-stress with guided walks through utterly peaceful and wild scenery that will rejuvenate the senses.
- Feel energised after two morning yoga sessions and relaxed after two evening yoga work-outs (all entirely optional – it’s up to you how many you would like to do).
Options to go even more feral in the summer months with wild swimming, kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding.
When you turn up at our guesthouse for the weekend, it will be hard not to take a breather from everyday life as the glimpses of mountain views and the sounds of the stream trundling through the village of Llanberis both work their magic.
Feel free to arrive at the guesthouse any time after 5pm when your host will be there to meet you, introduce you to the other guests and show you to your room.
After that, all you need do is grab a cup of tea and settle into the weekend until 6.30pm when it’s time to grab your exercising togs with our first hour-long yoga session that will shrug off any stresses. Please note you will need to bring your own yoga mat.
By 8pm the guesthouse will be alive with the hum of chatter coming from relaxed guests as we serve the first of our evening feasts and look out at the mountain views.
If you’re an early bird and want to start the day with some stretching then there’s a 7am beginners’ yoga session that will set you up for the day’s adventures. An alternative tonic could be a quick pre-breakfast stroll through the village or feel free to lie-in until breakfast.
Afterwards we head out for a day’s walking with a route that can be as easy or as challenging as the group wants. However we aim to stay at a low level and explore the fantastically varied scenery that can encompass anything from valleys, woodland, coast and some small hills.
Once back at the guesthouse, there’s plenty of downtime before a restorative yoga session (purely optional) that will ease your muscles after the day’s exertions.
Then we pull out the stops to serve a dinner that will amply replete the appetites of the ravenous and leave everybody feeling satisfied with their day’s activities, no doubt with the odd story or two being told!
Take advantage of the final yoga session, this time at 8am so you can have a lie-in, to leave you feeling energised for the day ahead.
Today we seek out some of the more hidden, quieter parts of the Snowdonia National Park for a gentle stroll.
