Retreats

“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” — Aadil Palkhivala

‘You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves’ – Mary Oliver

During these retreat days we will start by gathering around a fire for a warm welcome to help you settle in. The morning is filled with inspiring yoga, mindful movement, breathing exercises, energy medicine and meditation in the comfort of the yurt, hearted by a woodburner when needed.

We then enjoy a deliciously prepared, vegan organic lunch of soup, salads and dips, lovingly prepared by the wonderful Sharon Smith from leaf and ladle.

After lunch, depending on the theme of the day, and weather permitting, different experiences will be offered depending on the retreat theme, including nature connection time, reflective practices, guided meditations and visualisations, recuperative and healing practices and optional wild swimming in the gorgeous fresh water lake, an amazing wildlife sanctuary where often herons, kingfishers and dragonflies are present.

All days and practices are thoughtfully, carefully and creatively woven together to provide the ultimate nourishing retreat day, enabling you to find deep rest, nourish yourself and reconnect to your body, heart, mind and soul.

We complete the day with tea and yummy homemade cake around the fire.
