I spent the weekend back down at Stackpole, exploring new routes for all our lovely retreat guests.

Not only will we be using Broadhaven South beach as we did back in January but we will be utilising the fantastic trails that surround the lilly ponds. We are going to include far more runs (for those who like running) and hikes so that you get to explore this amazing part of Pembrokeshire!

Our trails, hikes and runs will take in Bosherston, Stackpole, Stackpole Quay and Barafundle. With milder weather (fingers crossed) we will be able to really enjoy the stunning surroundings and work up an appetite for our delicious new menu!

January Retreat 2015

It was a cold, crisp but sunny weekend for our very first yoga and fitness retreat at the beautiful Stackpole Centre.

Once everybody had arrived on the Friday afternoon we settled down with cups of Pukka Teas to introduce ourselves to the group. It turns out that many of our retreat guests have led very interesting lives (Charlie Boormans bike!!!!). After a lovely dinner of vegetable hotpot we set out on a moonlit walk towards Stackpole Quay. There is no better place to see the stars, Stackpole has one awards for it’s clear nights due to the very low level of light pollution. We ended our Friday with yoga Nidra and then it was time for bed.

Saturday saw a 7.00am start with a run down to the stunning Broadhaven Beach and a beach bootcamp.

After a very physcial start to the day we all needed a good breakfast. Luckily for us we had been provided by some stunning produce from Rude Health. Granolas, muesli’s oats and milks.

During the morning our retreats guests took part in power yoga, more beach bootcamps and of course copious amounts of tea! Lunch was winter warming soup with a selection of vegan rolls and salads.

After some chill out time we stepped things up a notch and performed a high intensity interval training session, lots of squats, burpees and push-ups. Dinner was moussaka and roasted veg followed by baked apples with berry compote!! We finished off the day with core and ab work and another relaxing yoga Nidra session.

Another 7.00 am start on our last day. We all headed down to the beach and got very sandy performing lots of dune sprints, topped off with a beach yoga session. We warmed up with soup at lunch and then finished off the afternoon with a nutrition seminar hosted by our registered dietician.

Myself and Kerry could not have asked for a more wonderful group of ladies to share our inaugural retreat with. You really did make the weekend extra special for us and we hope that you all went away feeling energised and refreshed.

An adventure to Broadhaven South

Today we spent the afternoon planning some of the outdoor sessions that will feature on the retreat. ¬†From the Stackpole Centre you follow the path along the lakes…

This is a great track for our runs and hikes!

Through the woodlands, past swans, herons and ducks. As you run further along the trail you can hear the faint sound of the sea.

Which way to the beach?
