WOMENS YOGA RETREAT IN DORSET w
Sophie Cleere + Helen McCabe
Friday 25th -Sunday 27th November 2016
Why attend a Women’s retreat?
When we come together in a safe, supporting and nurturing environment something magical happens. We begin to connect to our source, the centre of our creativity and begin to understand our power to create, nurture and honour.
Coming together as a group of women is vital in modern society when so much is asked of us every day … being so many things to so many people and yet we often give ourselves very little internal support or nourishment. Learning to connect with our bodies through our yoga practice can enable us to begin to understand and love ourselves better and when we feel nourished and connected with ourselves we are more able to support those in our lives and in the wider world we live in.
Two devoted Ashtanga yoga practitioners and experienced teachers with a passion and call for bringing women of all ages, physical abilities and yoga experience levels together, we invite you to explore the feminine side of your yoga practice during this special weekend retreat. Join Helen and Sophie for a nurturing weekend immersion of dynamic Ashtanga, therapeutic yoga practice, meditation, discussion and delicious vegetarian food as we explore and celebrate the unique qualities of women both in their practice and in life.
All welcome, if you don’t already have an Ashtanga Yoga practice no problem, we will be there to guide you.
Friday eve: 6 – 8.30 PM – Introduction to the weekend, discussion and guided meditation followed by Chai and cake
Saturday Morning: 10 – 12.30 – Ashtanga Yoga guided self practice class followed by pranayama or guided relaxation / meditation
Lunch break : Time to share a delicious vegetarian picnic lunch and free time to walk on the beach / explore or simply rest
Afternoon session: 2.30 – 5 PM – Exploring restorative yoga practices and time for discussion.
Sunday Morning: 10 – 1 PM – Ashtanga Yoga guided self practice class followed by yoga nidra and time for discussion.
We will then share a light brunch to close the weekend.
(Note: This retreat will not include accommodation but does chai and cake on Friday and lunch both Saturday and Sunday. We are very happy to give advice on accommodation should you need it)
This wonderful retreat will be held at Helens beautiful studio Yoga at the Space in Studland, Dorset. A stunningly converted parish it is one of the nicest places I have had the pleasure to practice in and I’m so excited to be co teaching this special weekend with Helen.
