Would you like to be part of a deeply nurturing and balancing yoga and well-being immersion experience set in the stunning Sunset Bay Chapel on the gorgeous Cambrian Coast?


This women-only retreat will give you the space to breathe, come back to yourself, relax, clear your head, reassess, and reconnect to who you are as a woman, helping you move forward in your life with renewed energy, vitality, enthusiasm, and inspiration.


Through a rich variety of yoga, meditation, group experiences, and holistic therapies, you will be able to take a pause and connect with your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. We will teach you effective, practical strategies to boost your energy, resilience, and fitness levels, introduce good healthy habits, relax and release your tensions, and calm your mind.


This is an opportunity to come together with like-minded women, share stories and experiences, make new friendships, and support each other in learning new skills, journaling, and receiving insights.


There will be an abundance of delicious healthy food, lots of time for fresh air and walks, and time for quiet, laughter, and connection.

1.Two daily yoga sessions led by two experienced teachers in the enchanting main hall of Ty Capel or the chapel’s serene zen garden.


2.Group sessions exploring a range of holistic practices: circle discussions, journaling, self-compassion, auricular acupuncture, movement to music, meditation, reiki and HeartThread Body Wisdom therapies.


3.How to use yoga, breathing, meditation, and relaxation techniques across a variety of themes to support well-being, including reducing stress and anxiety, regulating the nervous system, managing strong emotions, trauma, and feelings of overwhelm; decreasing fatigue and promoting good sleep; building strength and resilience of body, mind, and spirit; increasing self-awareness, self-confidence, and self-esteem for self-development and self-fulfilment; exploring stillness and movement; expanding awareness of pelvic floor health; and providing nutrition for the body and soul.

Clare Watson

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step in your life. Tip toe if you must but take the step!” 


Well. that was Clare in 2018! After a 30-year career at senior management level in local government and a life of multi-tasking family and work life, her ‘wheels fell off’ and she needed a change and refocus.  Inspired by her early career roots and degrees in Sports Science and PE teaching, and enthusiasm for an active lifestyle, Clare first committed to a regular yoga practice and fell in love!  Clare’s personal practice is Ashtanga yoga, and her passion for the practice has grown because it makes her feel stronger, more flexible, calmer, and inspired to achieve; and she can see improvement like no other practice. 


Over the last 5 years, Clare has studied the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Foundation Course and qualified as a BWYQ L4 500-hour Diploma in Yoga Teacher.  She is also an accredited Menopause Yoga teacher and trained Ashtanga teacher with the renowned David Swenson.  As a qualified Academy of Executive Coaching (AoEC) Diploma Practitioner in Executive / Business Coaching, Clare tries to enhance her yoga teaching with conversation skills to support students who want to improve their health and wellbeing. 


Clare firmly believes yoga is for ‘every body’ and aims to vary yoga practice to meet all needs, as well as support, motivate and provide the tools to anyone facing life’s mental and physical challenges to keep as mobile and active as possible for them, take moments to restore, and help reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm – and at 60 years old she can definitely say it’s never too late to start!
