Clarity of Purpose: Setting Direction

27-29th March 2020

New Year is a great time for setting goals and resolutions, but how often do we lose sight of them as the year goes on? Change can be really exciting and challenging all rolled in to one.
In this retreat we will look at setting intentions from a yogic perspective and how to integrate this into our lives in a sustainable and manageable way. Through a daily practice of yoga and meditation we explore how our intentions relate to our present moment experience and how we can explore basing our decisions on what we value the most. 
This retreat will offer us the time and space to re-establish purpose and direction through body-mind connection.
Within these two days you can expect meditation to help establish self-awareness , slow flow to remind us of our inner strength; and yin, to connect us with the subtle flow of energy in and around us. 

The Dance of Duality

12-14th June 2020

The dance between the yin and the yang, the light and the shadow side, the sun and moon; these opposing forces are represented everywhere, not only around us but also within us.  This 2 day retreat offers you the opportunity to use your yoga practice to explore the dance of duality within by bringing awareness to physical sensations, emotions and energetic flow. The integration of mindfulness practices within both dynamic and quieter yoga styles allows you to become more skillful in your own application of the practice in order to promote balance to your current state.
This retreat will offer an exploration of Hatha and Yin yoga styles as well as meditation.  You can expect some mantra (sound), mudra (hand gestures) and pranayama (breath practices) to be thrown into the mix so that you can explore the more subtle practices that are not always offered in regular classes, all woven together with some yogic philosophy.

The Art of Self Care

13-15th November 2020

As we enter into the ‘silly season’ and move towards the end of the year, life can get pretty hectic.  For many of us life begins to speed up and our schedules get even more jam packed! The end of the year can also be a challenging and sometimes triggering time for many people, and it becomes even more important to take good care of ourselves.
This 2 day retreat is the perfect opportunity to create a pause, to observe how we really are, and to tend to our needs.  Within this retreat we will explore meditation practices to build body/mind awareness, hatha/slow flow yoga will be practiced in the mornings to tap into our inner strength and to find focus, followed by nourishing yin yoga in the afternoon to balance energy.  We’ll also take some time out to explore practices that we can integrate into daily life to help promote harmony and self- care.  Expect some deep relaxation practices to be thrown into the mix to bring even more support for our system in those times when we really need it the most.
