ONE DAY RETREAT, SURREY / a practice of eating and living well (3 spots left)

This one day retreat explores the transformative qualities of Yoga and Ayurveda at our beautiful hideaway location in the Surrey Hills

With a mindful and meditative series of postures based on the Sivananda Yoga sequence, to guide us into a slower pace as we focus on breath connection, strength, mobility and rest. Allowing the mind and body to soften, let go of stress.

We pause for an Ayurvedic lunch, made using locally sourced organic produce with an approach to food rooted in creating calm, balance cleansing the body for optimal digestion and a strong immune system. There will be an ‘Introduction to Ayurveda: Food Medicine’ after lunch and how this way of eating can improve our health.

The afternoon session eases into a one hour yin class and 45 minute yoga nidra session. Leaving you feeling rested, nourished and revived.
