September Lakeside Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
We have 3 luxury Tipis and 2 Luxury Bell Tents on the edge of Ullswater in the Lake District. Inside they have carpeted floors, real beds (!) and of course some bunting. You also get a basket of logs and a fire pit to enjoy as you sit down to relax by the lake. We have 3 Tipis with 2 single beds and 2 Bell Tents with 3 single beds, we can assure you that you will sleep very well under the canvas.
The weekend starts on Friday evening at 7pm, allowing time to travel up from Manchester or surrounding cities after work. We’ll begin with a hello and introduce the group to each other, and move into a Pilates class, to suit all levels, with views over the countryside. When we finish we’ll have unwinding tea and a small bedtime supper together. If the weather’s good we’ll have this under the stars. Your waterside accommodation will be ready and set up for you and we’ll be encouraging you to relax and have a good night’s sleep.
Saturday morning will start with an optional early lake swim, and you can help yourself to a morning snack from your hamper. We’ll then head to the Pilates studio for a class followed by tasty vegetarian brunch. In the early afternoon we’ll take a mindful walk together through the stunning countryside of Pooley Bridge, ending back at our lakeside location. At this point there will be time for you to enjoy a few hours of 'down time'. You may choose to have an on-site chair massage with Kirsty, an Indian head massage with Chloe, explore the local area or you may simply want to read, write or take an afternoon nap. Later on in the early evening we’ll enjoy a glass of fizz together and then head out to dinner together at a local restaurant for a luxury meal.
Sunday morning we will pack up but you will still have time to have another morning swim or a relaxing cup of tea by the lake, then we will head to the studio for our final Pilates class of the weekend, followed by an essential oil session. After another bite to eat we’ll send you off home feeling as good as new.
During the weekend we'll be encouraging you to take a 'digital detox' from your phone and devices - either for an hour, an evening or for the full weekend.
If you wish we can connect you with other retreat members to organise a car share.
