3 days packed full of learning, providing you with the tools and inspiration to raise your game!
This is a chance to connect with like-minded folk, and receive expert coaching so you can head into the winter months with clear goals, strategies, and enthusiasm to accelerate your climbing performance
Climbing – it’s a multi-skilled sport which demands good technique, robust psychological skills, and a strong body. We know what it’s like to feel like you have reached a plateau, are struggling through a grade barrier, don’t know how to progress, or are losing confidence. We also know how amazing it feels to receive some focussed coaching and be part of a motivated and encouraging group of other climbers. We’ve been there, we know, and that’s why we’ve put together this intensive retreat, packed with learning, climbing and supportive coaching.
Over three days we’ll look at developing movement patterns, mastering route reading and refining tactics and skills for when the going gets tougher and/or steeper! You’ll leave with a better understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, a clear idea of how to progress, and lots of motivation!
Yoga – it’s the super-power that all climbers need! Yoga offers physical challenges that create strength and flexibility whilst providing headspace to develop the perfect mindset for climbing. This retreat offers intelligently sequenced yoga carefully aligned with each climbing session so you leave with a stronger practice and a deeper appreciation of how yoga can support your climbing. You’ll learn breath techniques to help you stay calm under pressure, “drills” to build strength, and yoga flows to improve balance, flexibility and proprioception.
We’ll be basing ourselves at Nab Cottage in the lake District, which offers cosy accommodation and delicious, healthy meals. There’s a hot tub too and a beautiful space for yoga in a converted barn.
