Rise & Shine: Spring Retreat
Energise body and clear the mind on this special self care day retreat: yoga, deep relaxation and MELT.
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.
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. 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.
