Dive into Yoga
and Meditation with your host, Lizzie McGhee
2 Yoga practices per day, lead by Lizzie. Begin your day with meditation, mindful movement and journaling. Infuse your day with intention. This is a great chance to explore the power of a morning routine. End your day with a wind down practice of either Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, or Yoga Nidra, using all the cushions, blankets, bolsters and essential oils you need to fully relax and prepare for a long nourishing sleep.
Lizzie McGhee has been sharing her Yoga practice in the Edinburgh community, for over 5 years, having trained and initially taught in Copenhagen, Denmark. Lizzie has furthered her training through Yoga Educator, Eva Hamilton, taking her Yin Yoga and Restorative YTTs, which has allowed her to dive deeper into this introspective approach to living.
Lizzie is now based in Vancouver, Canada and teaches at Yyoga.
The practices on the retreat are accessible to those who are new to Yoga.
Rustic, homely and nostalgic- no sonos or hot tubs here, but think large, spacious country homes, filled with character, quirkiness, open fires, tartan blankets, and surrounding luscious gardens. Unbeatable views of mountains and the sea, these two country homes are the perfect spot for us to digitally disconnect and reconnect with what's important.
It is an old country house and so it is mainly baths in the bathrooms. However there is a shower room downstairs that the rooms without a shower room can utilise.
The other neighbouring house will be used for the Yoga practices as well as more gardens and spaces to relax in.
Please enjoy the video shown to the left (playable on laptops) to get a feel for the place.

High Quality Leisure
There will be ample time to relax, to read, to wander in the surrounding nature, and slow down.
We believe phone scrolling, binge watching and internet addiction to be stealing our most precious resource from us- time. We only have this one beautiful life, and spending so much time indulging in low-quality leisure such as the pursuits our devices offer, is making us miss out on the fruits of life.
High quality leisure feeds your soul, it moves you, it allows you to 'be' as well as 'do', it can sharpens skills, deepen knowledge, widen perspective. This could be paddle-boarding in the lake with a new friend from the retreat, reading a paperback book cover to cover in the sunshine, or learning a new skill like meditation or Yoga.
We will be offering serious high quality leisure options on this retreat.
