— Lao Tsu
This year’s retreat reflects upon a quote by venerated philosopher of ancient China, Lao Tsu. Each day begins with active asana practice and meditation. The afternoons include satsang where the focus of the retreat is explored through contemplation, journaling, facilitated discussion and individual and group exercises. The rejuvenating practices of restorative yoga, meditation and pranayama are woven throughout the day, particularly in the afternoons.
We intend to create an environment in which you can truly drop off the grid and recharge in nature. and really engage with your surroundings and fellow yogis for a weekend of deep restoration (you will be asked to give up your digital toys- phones/laptops etc. But remember everything is always optional). Let’s take this retreat to focus on what is most important to us, to our health, to our hearts, to our peace of mind.
On these retreats, the mornings include a early mediation then practice sessions that start with gentle stretching and pranayama (breathing exercises) building gradually into a flow practice, suitable for all levels of ability. In the afternoon, there are optional walks, massages, and workshops. The gentler evening sessions of Yin with the focus on relaxation and release, promoting harmony, healthy immune functioning and improving overall vitality.
The weekends include shared twin or single accommodation, fabulously tasty and healthy vegetarian meals and snacks made by our own chef. All the herbal tea you can drink, and many holistic treatments may also be arranged with our on-site Masseuse (at a special reduced rate).
