Do what you enjoy and feel wonderful after this three-night Hatha Yoga retreat in glorious mid Wales. Autumn can be a magical time of year here – mellow and with beautiful warm colours.  

 This yoga weekend is a perfect opportunity to slow down and take time out for yourself. Time away from busy schedules and responsibilities. The retreat coincides with the Libra new moon on Saturday 28th September – a great time to take stock of how far you’ve travelled, the challenges you’ve overcome, and to look at the road ahead with optimism and excitement.

 As we join in traditional yoga practices together, it’s time to press the pause button, re-calibrate, meditate on the natural beauty around us and spread the love, peace and harmony in any way we can.

Feel fabulous with rejuvenating yoga – gentle yet powerful, walks in the hills, massage, sauna, nourishing food, and the friendship of like-minded people.


This time will be a reminder to attune to your authentic Higher Self and to be present. Relax and rest, centre yourself through asana practice. Connect to your inner wisdom through meditative yoga, breath work, visualisations and Yoga Nidra.

Connect to your heart and spirit, and a natural re-calibration of yourself and your life will take place – effortlessly!


Our weekend venue is in two beautiful barn conversions, adjacent to the traditional farmhouse. Warm and super-cosy with wood-burning stoves and underfloor heating throughout. The barns are grouped around the old farmyard, now a charming space with gardens, a stream, and an outdoor dining area for warmer days. There is a comfy sitting room. Also a gym, Finnish sauna, a lovely natural swimming and boating pond and a camp fire area with log seating.


Enjoy a healthy balanced and varied vegetarian diet on this retreat. Vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free options can be accommodated. Enjoy a large, healthy breakfast after morning practice with a choice of fresh fruit, muesli, yoghurt, eggs, porridge, pancakes etc. Teas, coffee, biscuits and fruit are freely available throughout the day. A delicious freshly-prepared lunch and dinner is provided each day, with plenty of vegetables, salads, and soup.


Diana Shipp is an experienced yoga teacher, with British Wheel and Sivananda teaching diplomas. She has been running holidays and retreats for the past 16 years – including at her own yoga centre in Kerala, India: Kailasam Yoga.  We have known Diana for 20 years, since when she first came to Huzur Vadisi in 1999.

Diana’s holidays often book up fast – possibly because this is energising, holistic yoga for the mind, spirit and body – not yoga boot-camp! It is gentle but powerful yoga, suitable for all. Her style is fun, inclusive and imaginative with an emphasis on reaching the spiritual and finding lasting inner peace though the physical practice.
