24th & 25th September 2022

We are so pleased to announce our UK based retreat this September!

 

After a challenging few years we can all agree how important it is to enjoy a safe space and dedicated time for disconnecting from the daily grind. RE-TREAT.ME RETREATS provides our participants with opportunities to recharge their body, mind, and soul with positive energy and reconnect with themselves.

 

We started with a solid foundation, and have only improved our offerings. We are confident that our picturesque locations, first-class hosts, and committed community will inspire transformative, inspiring and back to nature infused experiences.

What to expect

Yoga and Watercolour Journaling retreat Three Storeys, Nailsworth

24th & 25th September 2022

The act of keeping a diary is one of the very best ways to ensure regular self reflection. In fact, to set aside time for yourself and check in with your mind each day is very similar to meditation. The dear diary format isn't for everyone however, so this course is geared towards those who are looking to keep a visual journal that can be incorporated into your pre-existing routine. Each sketch booking session covers introductory drawing and painting. You'll take away the confidence, knowledge, and all the materials you need to start your own journaling habit.

Meet the tutor: Emma Leyfield Specialising in observational watercolours, Emma is passionate about traditional methods of drawing that are being lost as digital art takes the stage. This is visible in her work, which is inspired by the illustrators of the Golden age and is often referred to as nostalgic; reminding the viewer of their childhood. This impression is emphasised by the subjects she choses, which capture the wonder and curiosity of the world around her, with particular focus on British plants and wildlife. She's currently working full time as a freelance illustrator, from her studio at the Three Storeys in Nailsworth.

 

In her spare time, she nurtures a love of reading, a delight in gardening, as well as British wildlife, and a fascination with historical dress.
