NEW YEARS AFTERNOON RETREAT

An afternoon of yoga, intention setting, meditation and all things self-care to set the tone for flourishing in 2019

 

Sunday 6th January 2019

SET THE TONE FOR 2019 WITH A DELICIOUSLY NURTURING AFTERNOON RETREAT

Hatha Yoga, Discussion, Intention Setting, Restorative Yoga and Meditation

Whilst so many of you usually enjoy our signature morning intensive to welcome the New Year, the way the dates fall (and child care required for a certain 3 year old) mean this year we are doing things a little differently. Isn’t it nice to mix things up a bit?

You are invited to an afternoon of playful energising asana, nourishing self-care practices, potent intention setting, light snacks and deep meditation in order to get clear on and set the tone for the year ahead. Use this afternoon as a way to wind down from the holiday mayhem and slide sweetly into the new year!

 

This workshop is suitable for all levels but please ensure you let Kelly know if you have any injuries, physical limitations or relevant health conditions. You will need to bring a pen and a journal. All other items are supplied however if you prefer your own mat and meditation props please feel free to bring. Please ensure you don’t eat to close to the start time (a light lunch at 10:30/11am would be perfect). Light refreshments will be provided mid afternoon.

What’s included:

  • An introduction to the 3 A’s of Anusara Yoga and how they can help you set your practice and your year up for success.
  • A dynamic and playful asana practice to help get the prana flowing and dust out any areas of stagnation and heaviness (you know, in the event you may have over indulged over the Christmas period). Expect dynamic and accessible postures, group work, laughs and a feeling of light-hearted joy and self-empowerment.
  • Journalling exercises to get clear on setting your direction for the year ahead.
  • An essential toolkit of practices & philosophy from the yoga tradition (specifically the non-dual Shaiva tradition, sometimes referred to as Kashmir Shaivism).
  • Restorative yoga session (slow postures with the help of props, held for longer periods of time than a standard yoga class). This is an incredibly restorative and nurturing practice (hence the name)
  • Light refreshments
  • Pranayama and Meditation to finish.
  • Take home notes and meditation practice mp3’s.
