This is a gentle retreat to welcome tentative newbies, wary rusty people and anyone else tempted but daunted by yoga! You know the benefits but for one reason or another haven’t got round to properly seeing what yoga can do for you. And yes, there’s a lot of lying down.
Come to this lovely day retreat at Viveka Gardens with yoga, meditation, yoga nidra and yummy vegan food.
10.30 – 1 Introduction to Hatha Yoga workshop
- The asanas and their benefits on physical, mental and subtle levels
- Ways to integrate the yogic approach to living
This workshop will give you a good idea of where you can go with yoga
2.30 – 5.00 Introduction to Meditation and Yoga Nidra workshop
In this warm and encouraging workshop you will understand about mind waves and concentration in traditional sitting meditation. You’ll also experience the deep relaxation and opportunity for personal insight with yoga nidra, a guided lying down meditation. You will go away with simple, practical techniques to develop your own practice.
Viveka Gardens is keen to make yoga available to all so bursaries are available for those on benefit. Please contact to discuss.
