INSIDE YOGA – Retreat 2017

TeachersThe special surroundings and the movement lessons on this retreat will allow you to release physical and emotional tension and find more rest inside. This is a retreat with a difference; expect a journey – facilitated by a coherent and fascinating programme, including; yoga, somatic exercise, mindfulness, free dance and. partner work. Your journey will be varied and a lot of fun, with time to rest and explore the beauty of the surrounding area.

Yoga can be used to practice embodiment – to go inside and explore spaces and connections within your body. When you practice from this perspective , in the right setting and under good guidance, new and wonderful things start to happen :-

  • The larger, more dominant muscles of your body start to work less and you move easier
  • Long held tensions dissolve as habitually tight muscles release
  • Your body relaxes into expansion, it literally opens up and you start to move more naturally
  • Repetitive thought activity slows down, you become calmer and feel better

What to expect

Yoga practice sessions that will allow you to deepen your embodiment to discover greater lightness and mobility

Mindful movement lessons where you will learn to release tight muscles and move with a new found ease
