winter solstice day retreat 21 Dec


As the sun comes to a stop we stop too. Solstice will take place at 16.21. With yoga, yoga nidra and pranayama we’ll relax and gather poise, as the year poises. We will take a turn on the land around sunset and feel nature resting with us.

Mixed ability yoga
In this retreat being ‘able’ is more about the willingness to go within than trained physical strength or flexibility; but you will also develop all these aspects.

Yogic diet
A yogic diet uplifts and gives energy. We eat fresh, wholesome, seasonal, delicious vegan food made with mainly local organic veg and organic ingredients. Recipes for prana and read more about the veganyogi diet.

Yoga and nature connection
On the 2-night retreat, as well as yoga practices we’ll take time with gentle walks or optional work tidying outside in the garden. On the day retreat there will be the opportunity to either remember or celebrate someone/thing or mark an intention by planting a tree in Viveka Gardens’ new woodland read more

This day retreat forms part of a two-night Solstice Retreat, 20 – 22 December, £260
