Leave behind the stress of your work schedule and retreat to the sanctuary of the Welsh seaside in the charming town of Tywyn. Perfect your sun salutations to the backdrop of orange and gold-drenched skies, rejuvenating your mind and body as the sun rises and sets. Explore the natural abundance of Wales, hiking through the forest in search of tumbling waterfalls, or along the wild coast taking in the spectacular views as you paddleboard on the Dovey Estuary. Explore the benefits of wild swimming by taking a dip in the refreshing sea or the nearby Talyllyn Lake. Retreat to the luxuriously renovated chapel in the evening where you can explore healing treatments, indulge in gourmet, nutritious food, and be lulled into a deep sleep by guided yoga Nidra and the soothing vibrations of a sound bath.
