Spring Retreat

About Spring Retreat

Full/half workshop and concessionary rates available.

2.00 - 4.00pm
Spring yoga lets energy rise in the body, after the hibernation of winter. The liver and gall bladder meridians zigzag up the inside and down the outsides of the body, so side bends, twists and balancing postures help build and ground our rising energy, detoxify and strengthen our body in celebration of the warmer lighter days. It is the perfect time to set goals for the year ahead in our practice through good alignment, focusing our attention through the drishti (gaze) in postures, complemented with pranayama (breathing techniques) to gently purify, yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and meditation to restore and calm.

4.00-6.00pm
Simple movement influenced by qi gong, feldenkrais and yoga to gently warm and ease, breathing to bring balance with special focus on Deep Relaxation (yoga nidra), Meditation and MELT. It is said 20 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of one hour's sleep. Our practice will allow the body to deeply settle and long held patterns of tension relax and let go. Meditation is suitable for complete beginners to more experienced practitioners with focus on kindness. MELT is an incredible self massage into the hands and feet helping unwind knots and release pain in your fascia (connective tissue). It rehydrates your entire body. If you would like to continue this nourishing self care practice at home, kits will be available to purchase.

Supper 6.00-7.00pm provided by Yoga Kitchen, based in Milngavie, cooking all over the world, a well travelled couple whose truly delicious vegetarian / vegan food is infused with flavours of Mexico, Spain, Italy and Greece.

You will leave feeling light, refreshed and centred.

Fantastic for beginners with active lifestyles or people wishing to deepen their practice
From 4pm session is open to all levels, especially inflexible, tired, mobility issues

Please bring a mat (or request one), blanket, cushion and water bottle. If you can bring a travel mug for break time tea (and cut down on washing up!), that'd be great.

If you are unsure this is for you, do get in touch with any questions.
I look forward to welcoming you home to yourself,

Lucie
