About The Event
SUMMER SOLSTICE YOGA & WELLBEING WOODLAND RETREAT
A ball of incandescent flame lights up the sky. Greeting the dawn, it grows in intensity until it reaches a zenith. From the beginning of time the Sun has never failed to show up. Its' intense radiance majestically beaming warmth and light over an unfathomable distance to gift the Earth with life. And, as the day draws to close, it's power receeds to creates the dusk ... with a final graceful glance of shimmering awe, it blows a radiant kiss to the oscillating moon and disappears from sight.
The Sun, centre of the Universe around which everything revolves, is celebrated at the Summer Solstice. As we reach the mid point of the year this distant firey planet appears to stand still in the sky, lingering that bit longer in order to give us an opportunity to remember and give thanks for all of its' many generous life giving blessings.
To celebrate yogis typically complete 108 sun salutations or surya namaskar. Surya is the glorious golden sun god of Hindu Mythology, the igniter of life.
And just as the sun brings all life to the surface it also brings us together in nature. This woodland day retreat offers you a unique experience to enjoy a collective array of wellbeing providers in one unique and transformatively tranquil forest setting:
What to Expect:
*Vinyasa and Yin yoga practices suitable for all levels of practitioner, on a soaring wooden platform set high amongst the ancient oak trees.
*Professionally guided craft and inspired woodland art activities - work with felt and make your own dream catcher from nature's bounty.
*What could be more fitting attire for the woods than a beautiful flower crown? Under the expert tuition of a professional floral artist you can make your own and wear it during the yoga practices!
*Shinrin Yoku session - forest bathing allows you to really experience the enigmatic magic of this woodland paradise. Open all 5 senses and discover a few more.
*Nourish and replenish yourself with a delicious vegetarian/vegan buffet
*Enjoy the blissful healing touch of a head, neck & shoulder massage to whisk away tension and leave you renewed and echoing with light.
*And to close; let the vibrating currents of the gong, wind chimes, didgeridoo and drums bring harmony to your inner rhythms in a deeply restorative and soul renewing sound bath relaxation.
