1-Day City Silent Retreat in England

About This Event

This 1-day Silent City Retreat is packed with fruitful insights for your "in the moment" soulful experience. It will help you stabilize in presence and experience harmony and balance, as and when the ineffable reveals itself.

This retreat offers a chance to quieten the mind, a powerful technique in itself revealing Truth. A fast-paced lifestyle, especially the busyness of city living, can distort and confuse us and cause tension, feelings of dissatisfaction, or a sense of tiredness with life. Thus, dis-ease manifests in body, mind, and emotions. We will first ease through these layers using direct and simple techniques to find clarity, the true essence of who we really are.

When discovering who you really are there comes a turn in perspective. We'll also explore how self-healing arises, thus recharging body structures and systems to find a new balance.

What We Will Do

Held and supported by Niamh's guidance, we will alternate between theory and practice, exploring the ancient wisdom of yoga, meditation, breathwork, deep relaxation, and contemplation.

The day in silence will unfold through a sequence of techniques:

Quieting the mind, surrendering to the Heart

Hridaya Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga

Pranayama (breathwork)

Meditation

Yoga Nidra

Reflective space

Journaling

What to Expect

This artful retreat is designed to turn the mind away from distractions and tune inward with ease, love, and support. Not only will you feel more peace and openness, but you have the perfect opportunity to center and recharge your spiritual path. Expect to purify, heal, balance, and experience wonderment and mysticism.

Who Is It for and Why?

Based on traditional spiritual principles and visions, this 1-day immersion is for both beginner and advanced meditators. We’ll increase awareness with a non-dual approach of Self-Enquiry, with the intention to live in the very “core” of existence.

What to Bring

Self, open mind and heart!

Yoga mats and meditation cushions are provided, though you are welcome to bring your own journal.

      Hatha Yoga and Self-enquiry together

    Hridaya Yoga Center in Mazunte offers the most beautiful Hatha Yoga classes for those who want to approach Yoga as a Spiritual Path. During the Hridaya Yoga practice you will connect with your most inner being, finding the silence of the Heart while you enquire on the nature of the Self, finding the perfect balance between effort and relaxation. You will learn to identify the different energy centers (chakras) that are activated by each asana, and you will be introduced to various methods of meditation that will deepen your practice in a subtle but profound way.

      Complete Transformation

    Hridaya is one of those special places that will stay with you for the rest of your journey. It is such a beautiful place with the most pure, gentle creatures you will ever come across. The teachings are filled with such deep love and humility it overtakes you. I fell in love with this place and it was very hard to leave. Sometimes coming home after exciting travels can be tough, but after Hridaya I felt more ready than I ever have in the past to go home. Two months now after arriving home and I still am experiencing Hridaya daily. I continue to meditate and feel the love and compassion all the time that I found at Hridaya even two months later. I recommend this place to everyone, no matter where you are in your path. Come with an open, beginner's mind. Do not accept the teachings, nor reject them, just observe. At the end you can make your own decision. I've gladly welcomed the lovely new additions to my life. Thank you so much Hridaya, I love you all and can't wait to return. <3 Art

      Please read this warning before you visit Hridaya Yoga in Mazunte, Mexico!

    I am disappointed to say that after doing much research and coming to this school with an open heart and the hopes to learn all I could about the yogic lifestyle, I realized that this school only cares about money and not about the safety of its students. The members of the school board provided no assistance for me or held themselves liable after my tent, which was on their campgrounds, was robbed off all my valuables because they have no locked gate or safes for belongings. They never forewarned anyone of the robberies that were occurring biweekly at gunpoint (despite my pleading that they post a warning on their web site) and didn't provide any safety for their students. It has become increasingly obvious to me that the reason this school is so heavily disliked by Mazunte's residents is because they truly only care about making money. As a result of coming here, not only is my whole life in shambles, but I have lost all desire to practice yoga or live meaningfully. Please reconsider before spending your money at this dishonest and greedy facility. If you do decide to visit, PLEASE do not bring any valuables as there is no place to keep them safe. Students have even been robbed while sitting for meditation.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
