Yoga Rocks — Yoga &
Hiking Snowdon Retreats
April 1-3 & April 22-24, 2022

There is lots to love about this amazing retreat…escaping to a secluded part of Wales where you can relax and recharge; hiking up Wales’ highest mountain with expert guides; then massages to ease away the stresses and strains.

On top of that, you’ll enjoy nutritious vegetarian meals to nourish the body; a variety of yoga sessions designed to challenge and soothe your body; or just find a quiet spot in the garden to read a good book and have time all to yourself.

Retreats take place at Plas Cadnant, a stylish, secluded country house on the Isle of Anglesey, nestled in 21 acres of private parkland. The Coach house is the largest property on the estate, accommodating up to 11 guests on two spacious floors with an impressive upstairs dining / sitting room with large wood burning stove.

To find the yoga space, stroll through the walled garden, and majestic wooden gates to the purpose-built oak-framed building completed in 2012. The combination of lovingly hand crafted oak beams, high ceilings and under floor heating, make it an ideal space for yoga and meditation practice offering deep peace and tranquility.

The food is also something else. The Zest Life team are passionate about healthy eating and they make it an integral part of retreats, with an emphasis on wholesome and nourishing plant-based meals. The food is made without sugar or dairy products where possible and without wheat and gluten where required. You’ll also enjoy a substantial picnic during your hike up Snowdon! Plus fresh herbal teas to choose from over the course of the retreat.

There’s also plenty of time to indulge in a body treatment or two with one on the superb in-house therapists.
