Overview of the day

Gentle Yoga

We will start with a gentle Autumn flow. Grounding movements and Sun Salutations will help us celebrate all the gifts that summer gave us.

Cacao Ceremony

Drinking the sacred plant medicine of cacao and dancing to music can break old stuck patterns of behaviour and let go of what we need to leave behind. Read about Cacao.


Breath, Mantra & Meditation

Harness the breath and quieten the mind using yoga breathing, chanting  and meditation techniques. Come inwards to a place of stillness.


Lunch & Refreshments

A delicious, nutritious lunch will set us up for the afternoon sessions. All day refreshments and snacks are included.
