NEW Walking, yoga, writing.... one, two or even all three !
Saturday 8th June - Saturday 15th June 2019
Walking, yoga, writing - one, two or even all three!! Imagine the perfect Summer holiday in which you can indulge your passion for walking whilst combining it with yoga with our wonderful teacher Carrie Rodd. In addition we have decided to run this week alongside a writers’ retreat, facilitated and led by ex-publisher, published writer and established tutor Harriet Griffey (further information about what Harriet offers is available from her website here writersretreats.org ) for those who wish to develop their writing practice or complement it with some yoga or walking to feed their creative muse Don't worry if you only want to enjoy one aspect of the week - just just walking, just yoga or writing. The idea is that like-minded people with similar interests can pursue whichever activity suits them best during the day - and of course, this works well for travelling partners who have slightly different interests - then still meet up in the evening for pre-dinner drinks on the terrace and swap stories over supper. The second week of June is ideal as the weather is not too hot for walking, especially up on the high ridges and peaks, whilst remaining agreeably warm to enjoy outdoor yoga. Las Chimeneas is full of lovely, quiet, outdoor nooks and crannies with a handy chair and table in the shade for those writers looking for an inspiring place to continue their work in peace.
