My next one day urban yoga retreat this years is from 10am - 5pm on Saturday December 6th. For those of you who have not attended before these one day 'yoga hikes' have proved to be really enjoyable, both for us organising them and for the participants, many of whom are now regular and enthusiastic attendees.
I try my best to make these yoga days suitable for everyone, from beginners to those with experience of yoga and encourage students to listen to their own bodies attentively and learn how to adapt poses and sequences to suit their own level of strength, stamina and flexibility. You will have the opportunity to develop your practice during an extensive morning session which we will spend exploring how we can transform the intensity of our practice by awakening the core body. We will focus on a sequence of asana that really engage with the core muscles and learn how maintaining a conscious connection to the core can illuminate and enhance our practice. We will also have plenty of time in this extended class to work on various core strengthening techniques and longer held poses that bring with them a deeper, meditative quality to our yoga practice.
This morning session will be followed by a freshly prepared vegetarian lunch where we like to produce new and interesting seasonal dishes for us all to try followed by some of our homemade cake. After lunch we will go out and enjoy some fresh air on one of our traditional 'yoga hikes' together around. This time the Serpentine and Kensington Gardens which is close by. After our walk, the afternoon class will be more restorative and focussed on relaxation. It will comprise yoga gently, breathing techniques and deep, guided relaxation known as yoga nidra. You will get the chance to experience the essence of yoga and the way it unites us all over a longer period than you can in a regular yoga class and have the opportunity to get to know some lovely like-minded people, enjoy some beautiful urban scenery and return home feeling thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated.
We remain committed to keeping our day retreats as affordable to as many people as possible and have kept them at £60! This price includes all drinks, snacks and the freshly prepared vegetarian lunch.
