Wellbeing Days in Minehead

If you weren’t able to come to Halsway Manor in August, how about a Wellbeing Day in Minehead! – a chance to deepen your yoga practice beyond a weekly class and enjoy an afternoon’s mindful and energising walking in good company. Two workshops are running: Saturday 21st October – Breathing Space – a focus on pranayama (consciously connecting to the energy of the breath) and Saturday 18th November – Rest & Renew – a replenishing yoga practice to prepare us for winter with some deep relaxation before Christmas. Email to book.

Halsway Wellbeing Week

In August I ran the very first Halsway Wellbeing Week – with sixteen enthusiastic participants enjoying a creative mix of yoga practice and walking in the stunningly beautiful landscape of West Somerset.

We were joined by artists and experts who helped us explore the area and see through their eyes, taking in the awe and wonder of the natural world. The yoga practices echoed this theme of journeying, from orienting and grounding ourselves, to finding our way through movement sequences and learning to let go to the flow. And because we were in the National Centre for Folk Arts, there was a bit of dancing thrown into the mix of course! See some photos from the week on the Workshops & Retreats page.

Next year’s retreat is being planned already, so watch here for details coming soon.

Halsway Wellbeing Week

Bookings are now being taken for the very first Halsway Wellbeing Week – a space to explore yoga, art and walking in the special landscape of the Quantock Hills in Somerset. I’m really excited about this as it brings together everything I love – sharing yoga, being creative and walking in nature. The huge value and benefit of the natural environment to our health and wellbeing is the subject of much study at the moment and during the week we’ll explore how we can improve our own sense of wellbeing through learning to pay more attention to our mind and body and the world around us. Get in touch if you’d like to know more, or book here.
