Mini retreat Events
Create space in body, mind & spirit with a wonderfully restorative afternoon of deep stretching, mini-massages and powerful guided meditation, offering you time away from the hustle and bustle, to reset and recharge.
During the session you will be guided through two gentle practices: a 1.5 hour Yin Yoga practice (deep stretching, long holds), followed by a 30 minute Yoga Nidra guided meditation (see below for further details).
Herbal tea & healthy homemade chocolate treats will also be available to enjoy during the final portion of the day.
What you can expect:
1.5 hour Yin Yoga practice: Long, slow holds in supported yoga postures, allowing you to release deeply held tension in particularly tight areas such as the hamstrings, glutes, spine, hips and shoulders. A wonderful practice for creating physical and mental space if practised with awareness, as Yin can relieve stress and anxiety, whilst at the same time increasing range of movement in the body. Especially effective for those with tight muscles/restricted mobility.
30 minute Yoga Nidra: Experience the restorative and deeply healing practice of Yoga Nidra, otherwise known as ‘yogic sleep’. This ancient guided meditation practice involves simple visualisation techniques to navigate between sleeping and waking states of consciousness. Benefits can include improved sleep and relief from physical and mental tension, and there have been numerous clinical studies exploring the therapeutic benefits of Yoga Nidra for treating trauma, stress and anxiety.
