Event description
Three days of incredible food cooked by Mary-Ellen McTague, yoga with Danny Solomon, wild walks and a writing workshop in remotest Anglesey

About this Event

Join us for three magical days of food cooked by Mary-Ellen McTague, yoga with Danny Solomon, wild walks and a writing workshop in the remotest corner of Anglesey.

The venue for this retreat is Outdoor Alternative in Rhoscolyn. A place where the sea meets the land, down a remote track which feels (and is!) totally away from it all. The owners grow much of their own food here, and it's a great setting for yoga, writing, walking, swimming in the sea (image is the cliffs near the blowhole to the left of Rhoscolyn beach) and some great food.

The site is 5 minutes walk from three world-class beaches; Silver Bay, Shelly and Rhoscolyn and the campsite borders the dunes.

Lead yoga instructor is Danny Solomon who will lead four classes over the weekend. The classes will be carefully planned to suit everyone, a morning energising practice and a lovely yin and restorative in the evening.

Food by Mary Ellen McTague

Food is by hugely acclaimed chef, Mary-Ellen McTague (Fat Duck, Aumbry, The Creameries) with vegan / free from etc all available / included. Meals provided will be Friday evening, 2 meals on Saturday (and a packed lunch to go) and breakfast on Sunday.

Other activities and accommodation

We are offering one 60 min (optional but included!) writing workshop on Saturday - details TBC - and there will be time for at least a couple of 1-2hr walks on Sat & Sun PM with one guided walk with Ruth on Saturday pm.

Accommodation either camping or in small rooms of between 2 and 6 bunks. We have hired more space than needed so we will be able to group you with people you'd like to share with as well as observing Covid restrictions.

Bearing Covid in mind, we encourage attendees to bring their own tent and camp in the lovingly maintained campsite among the sand dunes adjacent to the accommodation outside at no extra cost.

Fires are allowed, and there are excellent shower and toilet facilities.

Total cost is £310 per person. 20 places are available in total. The balance of £210 must be paid in full 28 days in advance.

More about our yoga teacher, Danny Solomon

Danny has been teaching yoga since 2014. He has 400 TT (teacher training experience) hours in Ashtanga, Rocket, Mandala and Yin, and over 3000 hours teaching experience.

His first teacher was his wife, Fiona Finsbury, who introduced him to the practice. He has since studied with Jamie Clarke, Dulce Aguilar, Sebastian Pucelle, Murielle Burellier and Andrea Everingham, and he is inspired by Tara Brach and J. Brown. His classes are strong and rooted in breath awareness. His intention is to create a safe, warm and welcoming environment where there is space and time to play and experiment.

His understanding of anatomy and skeletal variation allows him to offer options and modifications, so that the yoga postures can be adapted to nourish each individual body. Music plays a big role in his teaching and he takes time to create an uplifting atmosphere with playlists that are tailored to each class.

Danny loves to go walking and camping, and is interested in philosophy and history. He is a professional actor and co founder of Elysium Theatre Company.
