ENJOY THE PEACE AND SECLUSION OF A BEAUTIFUL ANGUS GLEN IN COMFORT AND STYLE
Escape the city for a weekend in rural Aberdeenshire. Full of character, this countryside retreat gives you that cozy farmhouse feel with beamed ceilings, solid stone walls and oak floors, while the traditional paned sash windows look out over the garden to the fields and hills beyond. You just need to step out of your busy urban life and enter an oasis of calm and nourishment. The whole area is stunning and just a short drive from Edzell.
Have we mentioned an outdoor hot tub...?

How about something extra special?
This retreat we are joined by Katrino, creator of yogi oils and yoga teacher. Katrino began using essential oils and plant personalities in her yoga classes when she was curious about how the natural world could support us in our healing journeys. you can link plant personalities up with the personalities of the physical and emotional body. The medicine lies within the oils, within nature, within yourself and Katrino believes that using the power of yoga knowledge, physical movement and intentional use of plants we can introspect further into new ways to heal our bodies and minds so that we can share and live in growth together.
Katrino produces all the oils herself and you can often find her harvesting plants and herbs in local woods and fields. She is a Glasgow based yoga teacher but she lives in Tayport so literally just across the water from us!
Soooo… on Saturday we are going to do a smudge making workshop, make your own oil and do a single element focused yoga class.
