CELEBRATING AUTUMN EQUINOX | Yoga Day Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
At the Autumnal Equinox, it’s important to take a moment to go inward. Keep in mind that life is a continuous circle: always shifting and evolving, dying and being born again. When we stop spinning our wheels, we can begin to witness the pattern, becoming aware enough to actually break free from it. By grounding into this center of serenity, we are inevitably more relaxed and at ease. We are reminded that whatever the circumstance may be, whether good or bad, that eventually it too will pass. The Autumnal Equinox Yoga will help us to recognize the symmetry between light and darkness, as Mother Nature establishes equilibrium between both day and night. As the warmth of the sun tilts away from the Northern Hemisphere, we accept that the soil is dying as we turn our attention inward for the slower, darker and colder months to come, marking a time for inviting balance back to body and mind after the whirlwind of summer.
My main aim is to create a truly uplifting and calming mini-retreat for your body & mind, giving you a space for relaxation and deep rest, providing a ground where you can experience the quiet and self-reflection. Take your practice to a deeper level, fully mindful of your body, mind and spirit and ultimately leave the space refreshed and smiling.
All yoga days feature a longer yoga master class in the mornings, followed by mindful restorative yoga practices in the afternoons, mindful meditation & breathing practises and refreshments and a shared lunch in between. On some of the days, we invite a different wellbeing practitioner to give a talk about their specialist topic or lead a workshop, sharing hands-on advice and take-home tips. These practice days are essential for boosting inspiration and maintaining a sense of creativity on & off the mat.
Groups are for both abilities, those new to yoga and those with experience, with lots of space and personal attention.
