A bespoke retreat day of ultimate ‘self-care’. Using the powerful healing properties of yoga, breathwork, yoga nidra and crystal sound bowls this day promises to relieve you of stress, so you leave grounded, relaxed, nourished and calm.
Date and location
Yoga – Please visit the FAQ section of my website to learn more about Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga. Both classes on this retreat can be adapted for beginners. Please bring a yoga mat with you, all other props are provided.
Yoga Nidra – A term that translates as ‘yogic sleep’. It’s a guided relaxation that allows you to feel the benefits of deep sleep and it’s a place where the brain waves are unable to accommodate stress or anxiety, releasing any negativity and blockages in the body that no longer serve us so we can emerge free and rested, ready to embrace the new season. More information about Yoga Nidra is available under the News section of my website.
Forest Bathing – This has become very popular in recent years, but it was originally a Japanese practise called shinrin yoku. It is an observation practise where we become mindful of the sights and sounds around us so we can fully immerse ourselves in nature. Studies have shown just an hour in nature can boost your overall wellbeing, resetting your brain waves to a level where cortisol is no longer produced. I will teach you a breathwork practise amongst the trees to enable grounding so you can reconnect back to yourself. It is the perfect opportunity to slow down and enjoy a time of stillness and peace.
Sound Healing – I am absolutely delighted to be collaborating with the incredibly talented Alice Rose. Website. She will use her crystal singing bowls to help the mind and body rebalance. Due to the individual nature of the bowls they create a deeply transformative experience to promote healing and conscious relaxation on a deep cellular level. Please bring comfy blankets and pillows, anything you need to completely and utterly relax.
Food and drink – All food and drink on this day retreat will be provided. Please do let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
Locally Sourced where we can
Our morning coffee will be provided by Liquid Spirit Coffee Roasters. Based in Litlington, just a stones throw from our Retreat venue. Their aim is to extract the best natural flavour from every coffee bean, so they scrutinise every detail about the origin of the beans and the farms they come from. More information is available on their website.
