‘Abundant Autumn’ …..Yoga by The Sea!

 

A 3 day yoga retreat on the fabulous East Yorkshire Coast

Friday 5th – Monday 8th October 2018

Cost: £420 single, £365 twin share…. This is a ‘small group’ retreat with limited places available.

Autumn can be a blustery old season when we can be knocked off our feet by the changing elements and left feeling a little scattered and jaded after the fun and sun of summer.

What better time to head off to the East Yorkshire Coast for yoga, good food, bracing cliff top walks and some friendly company?

All interested and curious yogis are welcome to join me for this 3 day small group retreat at Manor Farm in the lovely village of Bempton By Buckton.

The Yoga

This will be a deeply nourishing, enriching and stabilising retreat suitable for yogis of all levels of yoga experience. Our focus will be the beauty and abundance of autumn and life!

Autumn is a bountiful season of incredible harvest with beauty and abundance all around. It can for many of us also be the start of a challenging time. When the nights draw in, temperatures fall and winds blow, as humans we tend to start the move towards hibernation.

As we are battered and dried by the winds and falling temperatures we can be left feeling scattered and ungrounded and without direction. As the earth gives up its harvest we can begin to slump and sink.

Join me for this 3 day autumn retreat and give yourself the gift of some time to slow down, take stock and reflect on your own personal harvest. Recognise and appreciate all that has come to fruition for you during the year and begin to manifest all you still hope for.

Plug into the beauty and abundance we have, both the external and the internal.

Enjoy twice daily yoga, coastal path walks, good food and company.

Each day will begin with a 90/120 minute yoga session. This will be the days more dynamic, warming and opening practice to ease you into the day.

Our late afternoon yoga will generally be slower and more restorative in nature with a variety of practices to explore such as pranayama, visualisation, meditation and yoga nidra.

I welcome all interested yogis to join me on this 3 day retreat. the yoga will be accessible to all including beginners. All I ask is that you bring an open mind and willingness to share and learn.

Non yogi partners are welcome to join the retreat and spend time exploring the area if yoga is not their thing!

Please note: This retreat is not suitable for people who are only interested in strong physical yoga as a variety of yoga practices will be included.
