Reconnecting to our inner being Day Retreat - Sunday 17th November
Join us for an intimate yoga day retreat away from any external activity from the beautiful Samsara Yoga & Retreat. As we prepare for winter with a warming day filled with yoga, delicious food, treatments, workshop, discounted Fisical products, ending with a nourishing restorative practice with goodie bags filled with wonderful treats to take home.
During winter the earth appears to sleep in the prolonged darkness, where underneath the earth nature is gathering its energy for regeneration of Spring. Just as the seasons change we will delve deeply to explore our inner realms, using this as an opportunity to practice self acceptance, take time to listen and recharge, nurture and nourish ourselves as if we are seedlings.
10.30am: Welcoming arrival with a ginger shot, a chance to feel settled and meet your fellow yogi's. Where we will begin our first practice journeying through a slow and mindful vinyasa flow, bringing warmth and creative movement into our practice whilst synchronising our breath alongside our movements, ending with a guided meditation.
From around 12.30pm we will enjoy a delicious lunch catered by Kim Parsons where she will be creating a wonderful colourful lunch to warm and nourish us inside out. Along with tasty treats and plenty of refreshments. Take an opportunity to relax by the fire pit, explore the gardens (be sure to wear something warm if you do).
