The stay will be in the points beautiful new eco apartments overlooking the Cornish coast. The retreat welcomes women at all stages of their life, new or experienced to yoga. They have chosen to host this on the equinox as night & day share themselves in equal measure, making it a great time to focus on & cultivate balance within our lives, better yet the harvest full moon will be lighting up the sky once the sun has set over the sea, a rare occurrence for these 2 celebrations to coincide.
As autumn sets in around us, the outward seasonal change brings with it many energy shifts. A great time to slow down from our every day busy lives & connect to our inner season’s & rhythms, this will be an on going theme within the retreat & learning how to flow with this ebb & flow that exists in all beings, including mother earth herself.
The time together will be filled with the following…
Freeing, awakening & juicy movement, positive affirmations, guided meditations, beautiful visualisation’s, empowering mantra’s & mudra’s, softening & energising breath work, transportative sound baths, women’s sister circles, ‘womb yoga’ – learning about our inner cycles & seasons, whilst honouring our deep divine Shakti – femininity, its power & its many gifts, tantric philosophy, tribal markings from Sofia, mindfulness, outdoor walking meditation & yoga sessions to connect us with nature (weather permitting), journeys through the chakras – our sacred energy centres, massage sharing techniques, freedom of expression dancing, yoga nidra, playful partner work, reflection time & more…
All these practises will help cultivate vital energy & peace of mind the tools shared & experienced can all be used in every day life to enhance & assist in coping during times of busyness.
