"Yoga can help create a perfect feeling of wellbeing, and when the body feels good and energetic, it stimulates the body to prevent and cure illness. In fact, no other form of exercise has such a remarkable effect on the body's natural healing powers." Therapeutic Yoga, by Dr Ali
I am pleased to announce our next yoga retreat! This retreat is all about creating harmony and balance in the body. We will practice specific yoga techniques and discuss really simple ways to help nourish the body by living in rhythm with the seasons and our environment.
Due to popular demand, the retreat will once again be held at the beautifully historic Ware Priory; a stunning Grade I listed building set in acres of picturesque riverside gardens, with period architecture dating back to medieval times. The room we will be using backs onto the beautiful gardens, which we will use at our leisure during the breaks.
The first yoga session will be a 75 minute vinyasa flow class. We will link movement to breath in beautiful flows and finish with a calming guided meditation and relaxation.
We will then break and enjoy an organic herbal tea and some healthy treats before settling down to listen to the presentation about "improving your overall health by living in rhythm with the seasons”. In this presentation we will discuss ways to get ready for autumn and how to embrace the season; what foods will nourish you and how to best nurture your body and mind.
We will end the day with a 75 minute therapeutic yoga and deep relaxation class. In this class we will slow things down, practise breath work, physical postures deriving from hatha yoga, guided meditation and relaxation all designed to harness the body's natural healing powers and boost your overall well-being.
We will complete the day with yoga nidra; a state of consciousness between wake and sleep, known as the ultimate relaxation! You will be guided into this state of deep relaxation, which will leave you ready to float out of the retreat, feeling totally at ease!
