We all know it’s good to take a break from time to time. At a Yoga Retreat you will get a chance to take time out from your usual routine, slow down and simply ‘be’.
At each yoga retreat we’ll take a particular theme. The pattern of the day will follow a similar format starting with a lovely, long yoga ‘class’. After lunch (simple soup and bread is provided but feel free to bring your own if you prefer) we’ll take a walk outside (do bring some outdoor gear) Upon our return, we’ll have some discussion of the days theme with readings and reflective activities that may include crafts or art. We use chanting, mantra and meditation depending on the theme of the day to deepen our experience. After that we’ll do a short physical practice to ensure we are awake and ready to transition back to our day. The day will finish with a nice cuppa and homemade cake.
Yoga Retreat – 13th November 2021
Exton Village Hall 10.30 – 3.30
“Sowing the seeds of change”
Yoga has great tools for transformation and change. Examples are – postures to relieve discomfort and to grow a stronger body. Meditation and concentration help to strengthen the mind. Visualisation can create a view of our future and alter a negative mindset to a positive one.
It’s always beneficial to take time away from our usual day to day happenings and reflect on how we want our lives to unfold. In this Retreat we’ll spend a time with the idea of a Sankalpa (a resolve in the form of a short positive statement) and how we might utilise it to sow a seed for change in our lives.
