Event description
Imagine you have a whole day off… Just for yourself in the beautiful, tranquil woodland surrounding of Coalbrookdale.

About this Event

Set in the woods of the Ironbridge Gorge.

Here you find yourself with an amazing group of women for a glorious day of yoga, meditation, nature, laughter and deep relaxation. We will be connecting to our deep wells, our energy centres, to listen to what we need and empower our spirits for guiltless self-care in a safe and supported environment. You will leave our day together feeling relaxed and uplifted.

Why should you join us?

Wouldn’t it be great to put yourself first for once? To step away from your to-do list, your obligations, to put down everything that tires you out, irritates or bores you? To take a day off?

Well then – TAKE A DAY OFF! Run away to the woods with me this September!

Relax with deeply nurturing breathing exercises, yoga practice, guided meditations, gong baths and a woodland walk.

This is your time to indulge in your own self care, sanity and wellbeing. Absolutely guilt free.

How would it feel…

  • to really switch off from what you ‘should’ be doing, and do what you want to do for the day?
  • to spend time with a group of like minded women in an inclusive environment?
  • to really dive into your inner energy well and explore ways to restore and energise yourself?
  • to relax in a deep, whole-hearted way. Honouring your life as it is, knowing you can take time for yourself when you need it with the relaxation practices and ‘tools’ we explore together?

Our yoga practices will explore how mudras, meditations, mantras and pranayama’s work alongside our asana postures to bring a greater self-awareness and ease to our everyday life. They will help you access a much deeper self-awareness and self-appreciation. They will help you relax on a deep level, and leave our day together feeling nourished.

Our Woodland Hide-Away

Our woodland hide-away for the day is nestled in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge, a World Heritage Site. Only a couple of miles south of Shrewsbury and west of Telford.

The home of the industrial revolution, far from billowing chimneys and polution you now find a protected landscape with small eco-projects and a “Green Tourism Scheme”.

The Green Woods Centre is based in Coalbrookdale just a short way from historic Ironbridge itself. Promoting sustainable living through a wood based economy.

We will be calling The Woodland Hall our home for the day. A special woodframed building on the site.

Our ‘outside time’ will take in the beauty of the surrounding woodland and nature.

The Woodland Hall.

We will be calling The Woodland Hall our home for the day. With it’s sweet chestnut pillars, peaceful environment and energy efficient design it’s a perfect hidaway for our Day Off. It has natural character, is warm, inviting and safe.

This site is all about switching off and sitting in the resorative, deeply relaxing beauty of nature.

Nestled in the woods you can simply walk in any direction to connect with the nature surrounding us. The sounds, the smells, the clear air. Feel yourself unwind. Allow the magic of a woodland day retreat to work on you!

If you would like to stay over for an emersive nature relaxation experience the site also offers an eco-pod, sleeping huts and camping pitches. For more info take a look here.

The Food!

The on-site Green Wood Cafe selects local independent artisan suppliers where possible and all food is made fresh to order.

Dietry requriements? No problem! Gluten free, dairy free, vegan and vegitarian are all catered for. If you need anything else, just let me know when you book and I will do my best to make sure you are taken care of.
