Bonnie Wee Scotland Yoga Retreat at Loch Lomond!
Yoga ~ Tranquil Lochs ~ Historic Castles ~ Whisky Tasting ~ Mountains ~ Sacred Sites

July 15-19, 2024 (4 nights)
with Sally Mitchell (Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Massage Therapist, Integrative Health Coach)

Experience historic and stunning bonnie wee Scotland at our upcoming magical yoga retreat, situated on the edge of the famous Loch Lomond in beautiful Scotland! Having grown up in Scotland, Sally is so thrilled and grateful to have the opportunity to lead a yoga retreat in her home country and share the beautiful energy of Scotland and all things Scottish with you!

Scotland is filled with ancient and historic sacred sites, castles, lochs, mountains and Scotch whisky, and is rich in Celtic stories, symbolism and culture. We will draw on the energy and wisdom from this sacred location as we deepen our yoga and meditation practices and connect with the wisdom of our ancestors on this beautiful land. We will also have fun and settle into the heart and soul of the Scottish way of being which is to go with the flow and have a braw time!

We will be staying at The Lodge at Loch Lomond which is a unique and stunning destination located on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and the beachfront of the wee Scottish village of Luss, with magnificent panoramic views over Scotland's favorite loch! The lodge is a short stroll to the village of Luss, often described as one of the prettiest villages in Scotland.

The relaxing location overlooking the loch will provide us with the perfect opportunity to slow down and recharge, whilst there will also be time to enjoy local hiking trails, watersports on the loch (e.g. SUP, kayaking, wakeboarding, fishing, boat trip), visit a whisky distillery or ancient Scottish castle, or relax and wind down with a massage or spa treatment. There is something for everyone at our upcoming Bonnie Wee Scotland Yoga Retreat!

We have selected these specific dates in case anyone would like to attend the famous British Open Golf Championships which will be held at Troon in Scotland, just south of Glasgow, during the weekend after the retreat, July 19-21. For non-golfers, we will be sharing our recommendations for Tours of Scotland after the retreat in case you are interested in seeing more of the beautiful Scottish Highlands, islands, coastal towns, historic town of St. Andrews, The Home of Golf or the famous cities Edinburgh and Glasgow, before or after the retreat.

Vinyasa Yoga for Everyone

The yoga classes will be mostly vinyasa flow yoga for all levels, linking movement with the breath for an energizing yet relaxing flow. With creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Modifications and options will be provided for different abilities. You'll have the opportunity to play with some backbends, arm balances, and inversions if you choose, and cool down with some deep stretches to restore the body and mind. The evening classes will be yin yoga, with longer held seated and supine postures, stretching, lengthening, releasing tension and creating more space in deeper layers of connective tissues in the body. Yin yoga is also a perfect opportunity to journey inwards and practice meditation.



"Sally's retreats are simply the best. Treat yourself to relaxing meditation, all levels yoga, quality, healthy food, and excellent company. I have gone to 2 retreats and found the other participants welcoming and friendly. Sally gets to know each person and gently guides all through her classes and hikes. This is the best gift I give myself every year. Can't wait for 2020!" - Marilee F, Nov 2019
