Special events & retreats

A special event, workshop or retreat will be longer than a regular class, 

allowing more time to examine a topic in depth.  

Mini afternoon retreats are a wonderful way to take a bit of time out to nurture yourself and replenish energy levels.  

A three night retreat is a perfect way to really get away from it all, especially as our retreat centre in North Wales is such an amazing place - the next one is likely to be in 2023 - we will let you know when booking opens.

​About Kate & Katy​

Kate and Katy have been friends since 1999, so we are delighted to be able to work together, offering afternoon and weekend retreats.  

Our afternoon mini retreats are designed to offer women a bit of time out from their busy lives, with gentle yoga, soothing breathwork, deep relaxation, soundbath, time to chat and reconnect with one another and delicious cakes and drinks.  Our afternoon retreats coincide with the main seasonal equinoxes, and are designed to support our energy levels as the seasons change.

Katy Shay (on the right in the photo) is a qualified homeopath, yoga teacher (British Wheel of Yoga diploma) and reiki master.  Katy specialises in crystal singing bowl soundbaths.  

If you'd like to contact Katy directly to find out about her classes or healing treatments available 

please call her on 07885 288490.

Kate Knowles (on the left) has been teaching yoga since 2004, training with the British Wheel of Yoga.  Kate has since trained in yoga for people living with cancer, menopause yoga, baby yoga, yoga for healthy lower backs and yin yoga.

Trigonos retreat November 2021

We had an amazing time at the wonderful Trigonos centre in November 2021, with yoga, relaxation, crystal singing bowl soundbath, barefoot shiatsu massage, aromatherapy, dancing, singing, walking in the foothills of Snowdonia and a bonfire.
