Celtic Woodland Retreat

Back To Roots - Welsh Woodlands

December 8th-10th


Back to roots uk special lands in the Celtic woodlands December 2017

This is an opportunity to disconnect from the daily hustle and bustle and reconnect with your mind and body. This retreat delivers a truly innovative approach to health with no assumed level to participate. The weekend will be full of playful movement, relaxation / yoga, opportunities to test your strength, beautiful local wild welsh woodland setting, lots of socialising, campfire sing along (bring your own wine if desired!), problem solving, sampling local cuisine, winding down and relaxing into your ‘fully self sustainable cabins’ in the forest just outside the small welsh town of Builth Wells. 


Back to roots health retreats take you to amazing locations around the world and are delivered by expert healthcare practitioners giving you an experience of modern day 'blue zones'

Join us December 8th-10th (Fri-sun)for the early bird rate of £399.00, limited spaces available in this UK first. 

Warm your winter cockles around the campfire and retire to your cosy glamping woodland pods

We can argue (and do!) that this weekend will not only be great for you but will also be great FUN. We take fun seriously (pun intended) and for good reason, it is supported by an enormous evidence base which we are happy to provide on request :)
