Craving some “Me” time?
If you love Yoga and you love to be pampered a little, you’re in for an afternoon of pure indulgence.
Never done Yoga before? No worries. This session is all about being gentle with yourself. The Yoga is slow, mindful and accessible. It's suitable for absolute beginners - for everybody and every body.
I’m excited to offer this new program to you... the ultimate chill out experience to calm your mind and body and unwind - allow any stress and tension you're holding onto to float away in this restful, soothing mini retreat designed to restore and rebalance your body and rest your busy mind.
...so what can you expect?
Here in my beautiful studio in Wonga Park or Wonga Paradise, as I like to call it, overlooking the picturesque Yarra Valley, we’ll begin with meditation and some gentle movement, to release any excess energy.
With your mind calmed and centred, we will move into gentle Pranayama, bringing awareness to the breath.
We’ll then pause for a cuppa and a bite to eat before settling into a gentle and nourishing restorative yoga practice. Restorative yoga is a deeply restful practice, where your body and mind are invited to move into the state of ‘rest and digest’. With the support of bolsters, blocks and blankets you will explore various poses for extended periods of time, inviting your body to move into a place of deep rest.
Following the restorative practice, feeling deeply rested, we’ll move into a Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra, also known as “yogic sleep” is a beautiful practice of guided meditation taking you on a journey into your inner self. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional stillness.
The retreat will conclude with a short session of chanting to ground you in the present moment.
Through this nourishing combination of yoga, meditation, breath work and chanting, you will feel more clear, connected and ready to face the week ahead.
Take some time for yourself.
Go deeper and explore a greater sense of peace and tranquillity within.
This event is suitable for all ages and abilities. No previous experience is necessary.
All equipment will be provided - mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets... however if you prefer to use your own, you are very welcome to bring whatever you need.
The location of the Retreat will be provided on booking.
