The Lakes by YOO Breathwork & Cold Water Retreats

March 1 - March 2

This month, The Lakes by YOO announces its partnership with Halen Strength to offer a series of transformative breathwork and cold water retreats in the heart of the Cotswolds. Led by Halen’s inspiring all ex-military team, the full-day retreats offer guests a powerful journey of self-discovery while learning more about the healing powers of breathwork and cold water therapy. The next retreats will take place on 1st and 2nd March 2024.

Surrounded by glistening lakes, wildflower meadows and 850 acres of Cotswolds woodland, The Lakes by YOO provides the ideal serene backdrop to escape from the demands of everyday life and connect with the elements. Crisp, clean air and the soothing sounds of nature create an ambience that instantly calms the mind, and prepares guests for the transformative experiences that lie ahead.

The morning will begin with an immersion into the science behind breathwork, where guests will learn about its extensive health benefits including reduced anxiety, detoxification, mood boosting, sleep improvement and pain management. A group breathwork workshop will follow where guests are encouraged to use their learnings and lean into the power of breath.

After a lunch of nutritious sharing-style salads, fresh juices and homemade bread, the group will join Halen’s expert team to learn about the benefits of cold water therapy, before a bracing plunge in one of estate’s lakes. Turbo charging dopamine levels (the happy hormone) and serotonin (the chemical that plays a key role in mood, sleep, digestion, wound healing and bone health), cold water immersion not only revitalises the body but also strengthens mental resilience, fostering a sense of inner strength and clarity.

Throughout the day, the breathwork and cold water immersion will be complemented by yoga and meditation sessions, to help cultivate mindfulness and deepen connection with the present moment.

For guests wishing to stay overnight, accommodation is provided in The Lakes by YOO’s luxuriously appointed apartments or cabins, offering a peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside. Cosy fireplaces, sumptuous king beds and freestanding bathtubs make this the perfect place to wind down after the day, whilst the floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around terraces provide breath-taking views of the natural surroundings.
