This opportunity is ideal to improve your practice, feel re-energised, explore yourself holistically and be guided by an experienced practitioner and teacher, Martyn Blacklock. Additionally, Martyn is a trained person centred counsellor and will offer one group therapy session per day to allow space to individuals better understand themselves in the context of their relationships so that they can make more informed, healthy, and adaptive choices based on a deeper awareness of their feelings, interpersonal behaviors, reactions and patterns. A perfect complement to the healing self exploration offered by yoga. The benefits can be compounded by the group experience and we will be encouraged to respect each other and work together to ensure you have the healing experience you need.
You will be received with acceptance, warmth, genuineness and empathy: wherever you are on your personal journey is just where you need to be; all activities are optional and there is a deep recognition that this is your experience and you will know what you need to do to get the most out of it. We will have lots of fun too!!
Your accommodation Misty Cottage is a luxurious, coastal 5 bedroom property sitting in the West Cliff area of Whitby, perfectly situated just a stone's throw away from the sea. Finished to a very high standard, Misty Cottage has a rustic feel, with each room being thoughtfully decorated. From the luxury bedrooms with en-suits in most instances, to the living area, complete with comfy sofas and a feature brickwork fireplace with a woodburning effect fire and a glimpse of the sea - the perfect place to relax with all your fellow guests and hosts after a day of self care and perhaps a visit out to explore some of what Whitby has to offer. You'll find local shops and cafes a short 5 minute walk away, and even a pub just across the street if you fancy a glass of wine on the evenings in your spare time. Whitby town centre is only a 15 minute walk away, with further restaurants, coffee shops and eateries available, not to mention all of the historical sites Whitby has to offer should you wish to explore before, during or after the retreat! This luxurious cottage boasts everything you will need for a wonderful retreat, come rain or shine. With the sea only a stone's throw away from Misty Cottage, this really is a perfect location to get away from the stresses and strains of life and invest in yourself while feeling incredibly comfortable and held by the house and the group.
