This Retreat invites you to nourish yourself deeply with a beautiful flow of practices from the traditions of yoga and conscious movement.
Reconnect to the rhythms of your natural ebb and flow, to emerge from the cocoon of winter and attune to the energy and vitality of spring.

Come and experience:

- embodied mindfulness (awareness of body, awareness of feelings, awareness of states of mind and other more subtle states)

- asana (postures)

- pranayama (breathing practices)

- yoga nidra (deep relaxation)

- meditation

Expand your capacity:

- for releasing deeply held tensions and patterns

- to experience balance and harmony in life

- to give space for the experience of ease, joy, freedom and spontaneity to arise


- that in moving consciously, less is more

- the freedom and joy that comes with experiencing your wholeness

- the grace and equilibrium to be present with what arises

This Retreat is suitable for all body types and levels of mobility and experience.
