We are delighted to offer two yin yoga workshop during the Summer Solstice retreat with renowned teacher Norman Blair

Norman is one of the most experienced Yin teachers in UK and he has been teaching specialised workshops since 2003, an expert in Yin yoga he teachers a variety of classes and workshops in London as well as on retreats, he runs very popular Yin Yoga Teacher Training courses and has been teaching yoga and mindfulness meditation for over 20 years. 

The practice of Yin, mindfully bending and gently moving can be remarkably rejuvenating for our body-mind-heart. Yin yoga gives us the space to slow down and stay with our experiences rather than always rushing and striving to achieve. The floor-based postures are held for several minutes. 

Yin yoga is a meditative practice. The emphasis is on staying in ‘shapes’ for significant periods of time. Stillness and attention are prioritised above ‘achieving’ a pose. 

Offering these special Yin yoga workshops with Norman will be a wonderful addition to the summer solstice experience, a precious chance to slow down and to soften.

Reviews from past retreats

I loved every part of my retreat at Sunset Bay! I went to their first ever Veganuary retreat and it was so relaxing, refreshing and nourishing. I feel like I spent a week there although it was only three days! I would highly recommend and will happily come back, could not have wished for a better experience for my first trip to Wales 🙂
Best vegan retreat in Wales!

At a crossroads in my life I decided I needed some ‘me’ time and to get away for a while. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to come. The team is absolutely fabulous and the 5 days were perfectly put together and delivered to the highest standard. I will definitely book again and would not hesitate to recommend Sunset Bay Well-being Retreats ♥️
Say ‘yes’ to this Retreat! It’s the best 🤩
