Who would you be without your story?

Imagine if you could let go of the past and the future, and be free of becoming, grasping, judging, and the pressure to achieve. Imagine realizing everything in your life - the problems, emotional patterns and traumas - have been specifically created for your own unique awakening.

We are not here by chance, struggling alone to cope with the problems of existence, we are invisibly guided by the Intelligence of Life while those around us on our journey are our guides. Once we let go of resistance and see ourselves with compassion and acceptance, we begin to view the world through the eyes of the heart. Only then can we move beyond our limiting personal self to an awareness of the One movement of Life. This movement is total peace, infinite love...’

Shanti Yoga Weekend

with Lauren Gray

March 23rd - 25th

Shanti means peace and this is what our whole weekend will encompass.
This retreat is perfect for those who have busy working lives and can't always spare a full week for a Yoga retreat.

Yoga is a beautiful physical, mental and spiritual practice and over the course of the weekend we will explore moving freely (asana), breathing deeply (pranayama), and seeing clearly (meditation). 

Arriving from 3pm Friday afternoon we will have time to settle in, get to know one another and enjoy our first Yoga session before our evening meal.
Saturday and Sunday will be filled with plenty of traditional Yoga practices starting with meditation and pranayama early morning, followed by some tea, coffee and fruit. At 8:30am we’ll gather for our morning Yoga practice to energise the body, followed by breakfast. Well then have some free time to use the centres beautiful facilities, before eating a delicious lunch together.

Yoga with Pam

with Pam Steele

May4th - 6th

Jnana Yoga – Finding your inner wisdom through mindfulness.

 The retreat will include meditation, yoga asanas (postures) and yogaphilosophy. There will be time to swim, walk, rest and spend time with others on retreat or take time out for you. The objective for the weekend is to take time out from your normal responsibilities, routines and daily workloads and enjoy the wellness and mindfulness you can learn from yoga teachings which can be integrated back into your home life.

The yoga I teach is a subtle style; it is often slow and flowing, sometimes strong but in the moment. I use yoga philosophy with each movement. Breathing is important to enhance the benefit of each asana (posture) Some asanas are held in meditation. Effortless awareness is necessary to come to stillness where the mind and body find harmony, so silence within is experienced. 

The varied activities throughout the weekend mean you can participate in as much or as little as you can manage, allowing you to choose how much you learn and take away from the weekend.
