Residential Retreats

Retreats Include daily Yoga, walking and swimming with full and half board. There are a wide range of therapies to choose from if you would like to add to your retreat. These are at additional cost and need to be booked in advance.

What’s Included


Karen ( BWYdip.) will revitalise you with morning Yoga or relax you with evening Yoga, using asana (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), sound (therapeutic use of voice), meditation and relaxation in effective ways to suit your needs and ability. The ancient art of Yoga will keep your joints supple, strengthen your body, release tension and improve the quality of your breath as well as calm the mind. Karen aims to bring about awareness, improved posture and balance in all areas thus enabling a greater quality of life.


We are a mile from the coastal path at Aberfelin cove, Trefin or Abercastle, and a couple of miles from the fabulous Porthgain harbour and Abereiddi with its famous Blue Lagoon. St.Davids is 6 miles away and buses run regularly if you would like to visit Britain’s smallest city with it’s beautiful cathedral. There is a woodland circular walk to Abermawr beach and Karen can tell you of lots more in the area.


Private heated lap pool available. Changing room with shower and toilet facilities. Garden and sea views from pool room.


There are optional periods of silence helping create space to absorb, reflect and connect with your inner self. Quiet meditation room available.

Healthy Eating

All produce organic and locally sourced where possible.  Wholesome, balanced sustaining meals. All homemade with love.

Super Healthy option

Freshly prepared delicious juices, smoothies, soups and salads. Providing your digestive system with a treat and boosting your body with nutrients and goodness.

 I was unsure whether a  weekend yoga retreat would really benefit me but it has been incredibly profound for me. It has literally changed my life and I don’t say things like that lightly.

Karen revived my passion for yoga and since the retreat have been practicing every morning. I’ve found it an essential in my routine to keep me balanced and centred. Karen’s introduction to juicing was fantastic and I now have a juice every day. It has enabled me to lose nearly 3 stones and keep it off.

Thank you Karen for getting me back in shape and on my path. You are an angel
