stretch and scare

Friday 31st Oct – Sunday 2nd Nov

Enjoy a break with Victoria Cunningham-Downey of StretchBodyMind. infectedcrow-300x300

This fun-filled weekend will involve Yoga, Pilates, mingling with friends, some scares (it IS Halloween, after all), an abundance of herbal tea (or vino) and lots and lots of shopping! That’s right! This is not your normal yoga retreat.

For a start there are no detoxifying foods or early morning meditation sessions. Instead, enjoy practicing a buchanan stvariety of Stretch classes, trying out meditation activities and journaling and, of course, shopping in the city centre of Glasgow, which is second only to London in the range of high street and designer shopping it has to offer.

And, as a special Halloween treat, we will be taking part in the “One Square Mile of Murder” Walking Tour arranged for the Friday night! This has received 51 very good or excellent reviews out of 59 on Trip Advisor with one reviewer saying “Laughed all the way through even though the stories were so serious. A mixture of history, humour and darkness.”

The Corinthian Club, in the heart of Glasgow city centre, houses a variety of private bars, dining and event rooms over five levels, including some of the finest ‘Grade A’ listed Victorian interiors in the UK.
