About the Workshop:
This day retreat supports our transition from winter towards spring and, using the Chinese 5 element philosophy, our journey from water to wood. This is a crucial time for us to rest and restore the body’s nervous system in order to be able to fully step out of winter and embrace the new shoots of spring.
The workshop will include breath work (pranayama), an uplifting slow flow, Yin yoga and Restorative yoga – with an explanation on the differences between these forms. The purpose of the day is to unwind, reset and reconnect with ourselves through gentle, yet powerful, forms of yoga with the hope that we can continue some of these practices in the following months.
This workshop is suitable for all levels of student. A vegetarian lunch is included.
