Winter Yoga Day Retreat – Fill Up Your Cup
Sunday 5th February 2023
The Hall, Hemdean House School, Caversham
Treat yourself to an indulgent day of yoga, nourishing food, calming relaxation, breathwork, meditation, a blissful sound bath and more…
Turn inwards and leave your troubles and to-do lists at the door. Let me lead you through restorative and healing practices that will leave you feeling lighter and brighter and topped up on all the good stuff.
Come and join me for a day of self-care and wellness to reset and revitalise, relax and restore and fill up your cup!
10.00 Welcome tea and chat
Time to settle in and set yourself up for the day.
10.15 – 12.30 – Warming Hatha Flow Yoga session
We’ll start with breathwork and mindful movement to gently warm up our morning bodies, before moving into an energising Rise & Shine hatha yoga flow combining asana and pranayama (breathwork). This will be an all-levels class, so everyone is very welcome! There will be challenges and modifications offered so you can practice according to your own energy levels.
We’ll work out any tension in the hips, shoulders and spine, build strength and heat in the entire body, before bringing the pace back down and ending with a beautiful guided relaxation.
12.30 – 13.30 – Lunch
Our lunch will be a delicious and nourishing vegan ‘lunchbox’ from my favourite local Vegivores to nourish and replenish your body. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements.
13.30 – 15.00 – Meditation, Restorative yoga and Yoga Nidra
With full bellies, we’ll find a comfortable seat in meditation. We’ll work to clear the mind and find stillness. We will rest deeply in Restorative Yoga poses to balance the nervous system and switch off the busy monkey mind.
15.00 – 16:00 – Sound bath
We’ll finish our beautiful day retreat with a delicious, relaxing and deeply soothing sound bath with Lorena Rodrigo. Creating a sensory meditative experience, you will be invited to surrender and journey on the vibrations of the sacred instruments to access a deeply relaxed state.
We’ll finish with tea and cake before saying farewell.
Taking time out is a vital part of improving quality of life. A day retreat is an ideal way to step off the conveyor belt and make the most of some precious me-time in a peaceful atmosphere, recharge and nourish body and soul.
