About the Event
Fall Equinox Day Retreat with Yoga, Aromatherapy & Organic Skincare
Sunday, 26th September 2021 @10am-4pm
Fall is the season of transformation. We can see this all around us in nature: the leaves are falling, the air is changing, some animals prepare themselves for hibernation and we are harvesting an entirely new crop of fruits and vegetables. It is important that we change with the seasons too, just as nature does, by adapting our daily habits, yoga practice, self-care routines and food choices. Moving into Autumn always requires extra care and awareness for our body and mind. Yoga & Aromatherapy, together complete each other with an holistic approach to create vitality and glow from inside-out in these transformational times of the year.
During the day, you will have the opportunity to attend a morning of yoga and an afternoon of aromatherapy & organic skin care. Between these two sessions, we will share our lunch at a common table. You will also have the chance to refresh yourself with unlimited Ayurvedic drinks provided by us throughout the day. We aim for you to learn and practice several techniques based on modern science and traditional forms of holistic health, such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), so you can apply these methods in your daily self-care routine.
Yoga & Ayurveda in Action with Aslihan (AM) Explore ayurveda in action on & off the yoga mat, know your 'dosha / constitution’, understand how to live seasonally, and how to find balance in mind and body throughout Autumn. Includes an Autumnal yoga practice to balance 'vata' energy, lots of information, reflective work and a meditation to end.
Aromatherapy & Organic Skincare with Claire (PM) Afternoon session will be based around you making your own 30ml bespoke organic facial oil to take home using organic carrier oils and essential oils. Claire will describe each ingredient to help you choose the right ones for your skin type (all skin types, including oily skin, can benefit from a facial oil). She will also talk about the benefits of organic skincare, face massage, natural preservatives, ingredients to avoid in shop bought products and other factors that affect our skin - lifestyle, diet, alcohol, sun, medication, stress, hormones, hydration, seasons and many others…
We will provide bowls, mirrors and a sample each of a cleanser, exfoliator and mask so you can prepare the skin. Then Claire will teach you how to use your facial oil in a lovely rejuvenating face massage. On the day you will have a chance to purchase Gua Sha Tools (TCM method) for yourself with an exclusive offer of 25% off. You can choose from Jade, Rose Quartz or Clear Quartz (Hay'ou brand). These tools last a lifetime.
