Autumn – embracing change

 

There is plenty on offer this term to ensure you ease into autumn with a sense of stability, inner focus, stillness and resolve.

Autumn is all about change, can you feel it in the air? I invite you to pause, catch your breath and allow yourself a bit of time for clarity and perspective.

Summer is so often a busy time where we try and fit so much in to the longer days.  Now with the change in seasons it’s important to recognise and surrender to the call for reflection and quietness.

This terms yoga classes will focus on grounding, strengthening, warming and calming as we prepare ourselves for the winter.

If you really want to nourish your body, mind, heart and soul then consider my autumn retreat being held in the natural setting of Anapana Ridge in Lesmurdie.  Open to men and women and no previous experience is required as this retreat will suit the beginner as well as the more experienced meditation practitioner as you take time out to go within.

While many look outside for happiness and meaning the truth is it resides within us by connection to the heart.

I am so looking forward to sharing with you on this retreat gentle movements to soften the body and open the pathways to your heart.

We will also explore the deeper profound effects of relaxation and breathing techniques.  We’ll enjoy some creative expression where we weed out what is no longer serving us then plant new seeds of transformation with some creative writing and colour exploration on paper.

And so much more!  including delicious nutritious food lovingly prepared by Nirala and access to the outdoor hot spa bath.

Commencing Friday afternoon May 22nd through to Sunday May 24th  $585.00 (inc GST) and all inclusive of everything.
