Day Retreats

Within the next two years, we aim to be a fully operating residential retreat centre. In the meantime, we are offering a limited number of Day Retreats. Come out for the day and be nourished by nature.  Enjoy yoga, wild swimming, our lochside sauna, delicious food, and good company. 

Also note, although we do not yet offer accommodation, there are some vacation rentals nearby and many beautiful wild camping spots!

You'll arrive on the farm, with stunning views of Loch Fyne, you can take a big exhale... you've arrived. For the rest of the day, you simple get to relax in the flow of the day. We've taken care of it all. We have curated a nourishing, restorative day that includes yoga, connection with nature, sauna time, local home-made food, and space to reconnect with yourself. We absolutely love hosting these retreats! Come with a friend, a loved one, or retreat solo. We guarantee you'll leave feeling renewed.  Our winter and summer retreats vary slightly. Read on for all the details.

Scottish Elements Day Retreat with Katrino

£180

About Katrino - "as the creator of yogi oils and a yoga teacher, everything i create and share is much more than a natural product or a yoga class. each product has a story. each class has deep symbolism. i see them as a gateway into a deeper curiosity of the world around us, which we can use as a mirror into a deeper understanding of us. how we work, how we move, our condition. a simple product, carefully created in the hope that we can unearth old folklore stories of times past, of plant symbolism and natures medicine and bring these tales into our minds, bodies and souls to aid our awareness. we are nature and nature is us. we move with the seasons as we do with the plants and the animals. we have lost a lot of this symbiotic relationship due to the fast paced world we live in. i urge you to try and keep it simple, keep it rooted in your locality so that we can become connected on a much bigger picture. my deepest hope is that my products and teachings guide you in some way, be it simply guiding you into relaxation, guiding you into a blissful meditation or guiding your soul into a little bit more awareness and expansion. from my heart to yours - may these scents, symbolisms and ideas soothe you and i hope you find the stillness in each season that your soul seeks.
