Vinyasa Flow & Yin Yoga Retreat in Spain
1 – 7 May 2017 & 9 – 15 May 2018. Recharge and reconnect with the life you deserve. Each day you will be taken on an inner journey to reconnect you to your truth and your hearts dreams and intentions for this life. Are you living the life you want to live? Is your work in tune with your highest truth? Do you do the hobbies and things you love on a daily or weekly basis? And if not, what is stopping you?
The Practice: We will start each day with a dynamic Vinyasa flow to recharge and energize our system. We will come into the body through breath and movement. Each day will have a different asana (yoga postures) focus but we will work on your personal development of where you would like to go within your asana practice. We will finish our practice with pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation, to help us cleanse and detox our busy minds and bodies.
Our evening practice will be a restorative Yin flow. A chance to really unwind and let go. We have so much Yang in our lives with work, responsibilities, strong yoga practices or exercises routines. As a society, we need to slow down and de-stress. With a Yin asana practice we hold poses for 3-5 minutes. This gives the facia (connective tissue) of the body time to release. We can go deeper into poses, and into our muscles, releasing tension at a deeper level. Yin is becoming increasingly popular to complement the yang dynamic yoga practices. Yin releases the ‘issues in our tissues’!
Each morning will begin with a different meditation to set our intention for the day. There will be a dynamic vinyasa morning practice each day with a different theme, for example letting go at the hips, or heart opening back bends. You will be encouraged to go at your own pace and listen to your body. We will finish each day with a restorative Yin flow, and finish with Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a very relaxing meditative practice that allows you to rest at a very deep level of consciousness.

30hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training @The Acres, East Sussex
18th – 21st March 2018 – This unique experience allows you to complete your Yin Yoga Teacher Training in a stunning retreat centre in the Sussex countryside. Surrounded my nature, and away from the responsibilities of life, you can completely unwind, learn about the wonders of Yin Yoga, and experience the benefits at a deeper level on retreat. We have chosen the course to run during Spring equinox, when the days start getting longer, nature starts blossoming and we can attune our energy with this grounding, awakening, and transformational time. Our yoga sessions will take place in a newly built yoga studio, previously a barn, next to the retreat house.
