New Themed Weekend Break Set To Launch In Scilly

sea and rocksSpecial interest holidays on the islands have been a growth area in recent years with Hell Bay hosting archaeology breaks, Carnwethers offering creative writing sessions and both the Isles Of Scilly Country Guesthouse and Tresco Estate arranging residential art courses.

Now Mincarlo Guesthouse on St Mary’s is hosting its first yoga retreat.

In 2013, joint-proprietor Bryony Lishman attended a 200-hour residential course in Spain to study the practice.

Bryony launched weekly Tuesday yoga groups at Mincarlo last night, but she’s keen to offer the sessions to visitors too.

She’s already had experience in holiday packages, hosting swimming-themed weekends as part of the Adventure Scilly business that she formed 18 months ago with her husband Nick.

Bryony believes there’s more potential for breaks that help holidaymakers get more from our landscape.

She says she wants visitors to be able to “immerse themselves in the natural beauty” of the islands, offering activities like guided walks as part of the package. And she hopes participants who come over to develop a hobby or interest will fall in love with Scilly and want to return in the future.

A package of activities is being offered for up to ten visitors for the first retreat, which starts on March 27th.

Bryony has ideas for more yoga breaks and she’s thinking about launching a trail running weekend later in the year.
