A midsummer exclusive yoga retreat with Beyond Fitness and Jane Ready-Webster. Expect daily yoga practices including vinyasa flows, restorative yoga, guided meditation & relaxing massages. Royal Cottage provides the perfect setting to restore and unwind with uninterrupted views of Loch Katrine and the National Park. All accommodation, meals, snacks and drinks included in the price as well as a 45 minute complimentary massage for each guest and special goodie bag.
All of our meals are prepared at Royal Cottage with fresh ingredients. We try to source produce locally and even grow some in our garden. We can cater to most dietary requirements and will always have a number of vegetarian dishes available at meal times. Our food is designed to be shared in a social setting. On our retreats we won't let anyone go hungry and there are always healthy snacks available throughout the day.
Our yoga sessions are all led by our fully qualified yoga instructor and nutritionist Jane. Over the course of three days we will enjoy over 5 hours of yoga including Vinyasa, Yin or Restorative and guided meditation. In addition Kim, our qualified Personal Trainer and Sports Massage therapist will lead a session on foam rolling and stretching and provide 45 minutes of massage to each of our guests. There is also the opportunity to explore the beautiful surroundings on a 2 hour guided walk.
Royal Cottage on the banks of Loch Katrine was originally built in the 1850s as a place for Queen Victoria to stay while she opened the revolutionary waterworks that fed the growing city of Glasgow with clean water over 50km away. In the past decade the current owners and their family have painstakingly restored the building to the cosy Highland escape it is today, complete with modern energy saving technology and wood burning stoves in all the communal areas. Secluded at the end of a 3 mile private road Royal Cottage is the perfect getaway.
Jane is a qualified yoga instructor with experience spanning the globe from Canada and the UK to Indonesia and Thailand. She has worked in various yoga studios, with corporate clients and also has her own yoga YouTube channel “Stretchies and Stuff”. Her sessions are light-hearted and mindful and are designed to leave you feeling relaxed yet invigorated.
Kim is a qualified personal trainer and sports massage therapist. During the yoga retreat you will find Kim hosting the guests, leading a mobility and foam rolling session, guiding woodland hikes and treating everyone to a massage. Kim started joining yoga classes around 8 years ago and regularly finds time to practice in her free time.
