FRESH PERCEPTION RETREATS
“Escape the hustle and bustle to a well of luxury healing in the stark Lakes of Cumbria. Fresh Perception offers our clients an ideal way of enhancing their wellbeing experience by running regular retreats in the rolling hills of the Whicham and Duddon Valleys over looking the sea. Our luxury retreats are a delicious way of pealing off the pressures of work and slipping into the pool of tranquility. You can deepen your yoga and meditation practice in comfort and peace all the while enjoying the adventures of the country hills and valleys.”
I don’t know about you but that is music. to. my. ears. This stressed out Londoner has had her fill of the City for now and is in desperate need of some fresh air and wide open spaces! A bit of luxury and tlc never goes amiss, either. I don’t know if you can tell but I’m beyond excited to be attending this retreat this coming weekend!!
Hope Bastine, is the yoga guru, mindfulness teacher and all around holistic warrior that will be leading us through this retreat, helping us to shake off the stresses of modern day living and reconnect with ourselves, and each other. So important in this smart phone crazy world we live in. I know that I for one, am super guilty of spending too much time on my phone and not being as present and ‘in the moment’ as I could be, so it will be nice to dial things back a little and really focus on recharging the mind, body and soul. (I’m sure I will still be posting on Instagram as how can you not, when it’s that gorgeous!)
The retreat, amongst other things, will include all of our meals – cooked on site, sourced locally and prepared with health and wellness in mind. There is daily yoga, meditation and mindfulness sessions. There is a planned 4 hour hike up Black Combe with a bit of mountain meditation when we reach the top, I can’t wait for this!! There is a purpose built gym and yoga studio which we will be utilising as much as possible! We have also decided to take our bikes and will be taking full advantage of our beautiful surroundings on the Sunday afternoon before we indulge in our 30 minute aromatherapy massage (also included in the package). We have found a brilliant bike route that’s only 40 miles but has a bit of a sting in the tail in the form of a nice bit of climbing, I’m sure the views will make it all worth it!
Ahh, I could go on…. This is basically just what we need right now! Fresh Perception we are SO ready for this! Check back after the weekend for a full and thorough write up along with our tips about how to get the most out of the weekend, plus more!
