Our minds and senses are over stimulated and polluted, with too much technology, too many schedules, too many cars, bright lights and industrial noises…Let your senses soften and receive the wilderness, in beauty and tranquility, with daily yoga and mediation practice OUTSIDE in the fresh eucalyptus-laced air. For those who are tempted by something altogether more natural, peaceful, off-the-beaten-track. Early bird £450 before April 11th
Owls and deep starry skies, the smell of the forest, living close to the elements in simply but tastefully furnished yurt or bell tent.
Twice daily yoga sessions, meditation in forest each morning, wild river swimming, natural spring plunge pool right next to Big Mama Yurt.
Fabulous musical hosts – happy to share music, merriment and deep philosophy, and delicious healthy vegetarian food, home grown where possible on organic small holding.
All food provided, but some of the meals will be prepared by us, the retreat participants, in the lush outdoors kitchen space, so we get a chance to offer our culinary skills and work with each other….Exploring Yoga in our inter relationships with other beings!
The retreat is Vegetarian and caters for Vegan, though Sunday is free style, eat out day. Pick-your-own herbs and salads, fresh living spring water, wine/coffee/tea provided… Deep un winding, reflection, meditation, Hatha Yoga Flow, immersion in Nature….with time for merriment, lazing in hammocks in the sunshine, socialising, river swimming, and mountain walks….
