Go Slow Sundays

Last Sunday @ month, 9am-2.30pm (Summer)

 

Deepening into Stillness

Everything we are looking for, is inside of us. Turn your attention inwards with this 51/2hour mini retreat, diving deeper within and finding clarity in the stillness. All levels of ability are welcome.

‘If we don’t look after our minds how will we ever thrive?
If we don’t look after our bodies, where are we going to live?’

 

Starting with some breathing exercises (Pranamaya) to calm and quiet the mind we will then 'download' and silence the noise through a writing practice. Calmer and quieter, we head out for a mindful wander in nature (approx 45mins), where we can begin to tune in more deeply and create some space within. Organic homegrown teas and light snacks provided. On our return journey, we will walk in silence together and have the option to walk barefoot on the earth. We will return to Mountain Spirit and continue this journey of opening the body, mind and heart through a nurturing and nourishing yin yoga practice (approx 2hours) in our beautiful light filled yurt surrounded by the sounds of nature. In closing we will complete another writing exercise and Metta meditation. No yoga experience is necessary

 

Time stands still

In the practice of Yin yoga, we find balance by bringing our attention inwards, using our senses to guide us on an inquiry & inner exploration. Through attentive awareness of the breath, sensations in the body & mind and the sounds we hear around us, we can more easily access a portal to presence and embodied stillness. It is from this place, when our minds are quiet, that our intuition speaks louder than our fears and we can begin to trust ourselves more deeply.
