ROAM SCOTLAND 2022

A cozy, warming and nourishing end-of-winter getaway with Roam Retreats.

March 24th until March 29th 2022

Come join us for a 4 day / 5 night blend of Metaphysics, Ayurveda, Yoga and Breathwork to explore within, or simply to take time out and relax

Ready for a cosy, warming and nourishing end of winter getaway?⁠

Take a look at our Roam Scotland retreat, planned for March 24th till 29th 2022, 5 nights at the gorgeous Kilmun House, Loch Lomond, and 4 days with a unique blend of Metaphysics, Ayurveda, Yoga and Breathwork, to explore within, or simply to take time out and relax.⁠

Our daily Yoga classes will cover Vinyasa, Yin and Hatha Alignment alongside conscious breathing, mindfulness and meditation exercises. Classes are taught with the intention of assisting you in establishing a daily routine of health and wellness, to deepen your understanding of yoga and holistic philosophy, on and off the mat.

In addition to Yoga classes we will also incorporate some self inquiry sessions in which we will discuss ways that the Metaphysical Principles and philosophy can help us find ease in our daily lives. Like Yoga itself, this philosophy can lend a deeper understanding to phrases such as “take the yoga off the mat” and “you are NOT your thoughts”. We’ll discuss in more depth, what do these phrases actually mean and how can we apply them in our “day to day” life? What tools and techniques can we use to support and sustain as we grow in our awareness.

With this combination of teachings and insights, we hope to imbue you with a new perspective on daily life. We want to enable you to head home with more space and ease in your heart centre, and the ability to find that place, time and again, amid the changing surroundings of the ‘everyday’.

It would be our intention, that you are able to discover some of the benefits of a regular Spiritual Practise, and discern some useful tools, personal to your needs, that you can take away and use to enhance your existing Practise, or begin anew.
Food is planned, prepared and cooked by the lovely Monika. Expect warm nourishing meals following the principles of Ayurveda. You can expect warm, nourishing meals that are planned to compliment
the teaching of the day…and perhaps a little warming whiskey in the evenings next to the fire. We are in Scotland after all!

It promises to be restorative, informative,
life-enhancing and magical. We do hope you’ll join us on this uniquely curated retreat.

Meet the Instructors

Hayley is an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga Teacher, known for her creative sequencing and inclusive classes for all levels of experience. Hayley’s classes are playful, honest and challenging in a way that makes you stronger and more flexible, both on and off the mat. Interweaving Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, into her teachings allows her students to feel more in harmony with themselves and nature. Hayley shares the wisdom of Ayurveda in an uncomplicated and accessible way, encouraging people to move away from the “pill for every ill” mentality and to a more natural and holistic approach to health.

Louise is a Metaphysical Counsellor and Yoga Teacher. Seeing the magic in both philosophys, she is keen to share what she has found to be an accessible and life changing approach to ‘stuckness’ of all types. Louise’s training allows her to counsel one to one, but also to facilitate group teachings, opening up your Self Awareness, connecting to your intuition, encouraging a curiosity, which in turn allows us to shed old thinking, release repeating patterns and find ease in our thinking. Enhancing the ability to respond, as opposed to reacting to people, situations…even ourselves! Her Yoga teaching is a continuation of this, moving into postures gently, being willing to ‘find’ the posture for you, create the space and giving longer holds to allow the stillness to enter. To allow the body to be what it is, where it is, right now. We grow from this place.

Monika will refer to herself, as “just a cook”, not entertaining the word ‘chef’. Yet, for those that have tasted her cooking know there is no ‘just a cook’ about it!! The act of cooking alongside the sharing of the food is where the ‘joy’ is, this way of cooking appeared in her life at a very early age, and it is this process as a whole, that she loves. This has, in turn, inspired her to learn and discover the nutritional values hidden behind delicious food. It can heal emotionally and physically, and hence she knows how to prepare our bodies for the seasons to come, with a natural affinity to what complements each other on the plate. Her company Portuguese based vegan food brand Venn, and her project Hotelier_o, gives her the chance to explore and cultivate soul nourishing dishes every day, exactly what you need to boost the energy and good feelings during your time on retreat.

Skill Level

Classes are designed for beginners or those with knowledge that just wish to deepen their practice and build more understanding. The blend of these different approaches will perhaps offer a different perspective.
