Yoga Retreat Day  4th March 2018   9-45am til 4pm

Nourishment - Shedding BUSY - Settling Body and Mind 

It seems that it has become normal to feel exhausted in this busy world and it is difficult to get away from being constantly bombarded with media and technology. This leaves us feeling distracted and depleted. I invite you to step away from all the fast, furious,

busy world and explore a day of self nurture

yoga practices.

This day will give our nervous systems a full

reboot, where we can find time to stop and take time - To feel fully nourished and taken care of. The day will include music and chanting where we can immerse ourselves in voices together. Guided meditation and breath practices. Gentle mindful yoga flows to reconnect with ourselves. A shared vegetarian feast. Yoga Nidra ( deep relaxation where we nest the body and experience tibetan bowls ) and Self Nurture and Restorative Practices.

Please bring a bottle of water, a mat and

a blanket (if you have one) and vegetarian food to share with everyone. If everyone brings a dish we will have a feast. A simple lentil dahl and will be provided and raw vegan truffles.

Fruit and herbal teas are available throughout the day.

If you have some “nesting materials”  for example blankets, blocks, bolsters, eye pillow, warm socks please bring them too, so we can explore some restorative postures and cosy up for the deep relaxation :)

As we Let go of  stress we feel more relaxed and uplifted.

The day will be very experiential, where you can immerse yourself fully, with time for investigation and reflection. The retreat day is available to all abilities beginner or experienced.
