About Garth Barns

The perfect combination of beautiful location, great facilities and accessibility, set amidst rolling hills of rural Wales. Garth Barns sits nestled in unspoiled and natural beauty in the countryside that surrounds the historic and pretty town of Llanidloes. A world away from it all, deep in the charm of rural Wales and yet easily accessed from London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham.


The two large barn conversions that house the Yoga Shala and all of the accommodation, are heated from renewable biomass and the drinking water is from the farm’s own pure spring water source. The barns surround the old farmyard, now a lovely space with gardens, a stream and an outdoor dining area for warmer days. There is also a gym and Finnish sauna. For wild swimmers there is a swimming pond. The venue is set within 200 acres of farmland with plenty of walks in the hills and valleys right on the doorstep.


The Daily programme

The yoga classes will take place in the large and airy yoga room with underfloor heating. A hatha yoga based practice with an integration of other traditions will naturally open the heart and nurture you to a space of surrender and stillness. A typical class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), hands-on adjustments, guided relaxation, chanting and a taste of philosophy. Typically each class will last for 2 hours. The day will begin with silent meditation and a little mantra chanting. This will be followed by the morning yoga class. We then have breakfast followed by free time, massages and then afternoon yoga practice. In the evenings there will be other activities that may include meditation, inspiring cinema, bonfires and chanting.
