Return to Stillness – Yin Yoga
From Friday, 2. December 2022
To Monday, 5. December 2022
 

Immerse yourself in the deeply nourishing practice of Yin yoga, and experience a shift as mindfulness-based principles are incorporated to create a sense of calmness & reflection.

We will go deeper, with longer held poses and create greater stillness of the mind and more openness and flexibility of the body, and explore several types of pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditations. We can then successfully combine both our asanas and meditation into a deeply transformative practice.

The longer and passively held poses in the meditative practice of Yin yoga are the perfect counterbalance for us in our busy lives. We have an opportunity to relax and completely let go and sink deeper and soften into the pose in order to experience a sense of peace and stillness within us.

There will be basic mindfulness meditations each day to assist and support you during the retreat.

SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS
