Take a little time out and learn a simple pleasure

The Dell is a beautiful, creative and versatile space to host a retreat or event of any kind. Right in the heart of the Cairngorms and on the edge of the Abernethy Forest the Dell is a peaceful place with great access to real wilderness.
Accommodation is versatile, owner Polly can provide creative and nourishing soul-food and a studio space can either be set in the woodland Tipi or first floor dual aspect room in the Lodge with open fire and views to the mountains.
We make sure your guests have the environment that allows them to relax and gain the most from the retreat. The kettle is always on, the fire stoked, candles lit and a warm welcome to the Dell.

Rest & Restore

6 Jun - 31 Oct

7pm Most Wednesdays

£8

Why restorative yoga? In our fast paced busy lifestyle a restorative practice allows our busy bodies to fall into a well deserved state of effortlessness, focusing on muscular relaxation, creating softness of both the body and the mind.
In these magical Tipi sessions we will encourage deep relaxation and openness of the body, stillness of mind and give our selves that well needed break to foster our bodies true capacity for balancing and healing.
Sessions require no previous experience, just some comfy clothes, big cushion/bolster and big smiles.
