Overview of the day
We will start with a gentle Autumn flow. Grounding movements and Sun Salutations will help us celebrate all the gifts that summer gave us.
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.
An afternoon stroll around the stunning grounds of the Manor House will remind us how nature adapts and moves on.
Rest & Relaxation
Restorative Yoga and a deeply relaxing, guided Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) session will leave you feeling rested, refreshed and revitalised.
