Are you craving some time to yourself?
For many of us, this special time of social distancing has been an opportunity to reflect on what is important. Perhaps you've rekindled a self-care practice. Perhaps you've caught up on books you've been meaning to read for years.
But for some of us, it has also been a time of unsettling change and new responsibilities:
Preparing 3 meals a day, every day.
Living 24/7 with people you love...and crave space from.
Couriering groceries to those needing additional support.
Being a loving ear for friends not faring so well.
All of these things can leave us feeling depleted, despite having more time at home.
If this is resonating for you, I'm delighted to invite you to my very special yoga retreats...online!
These are mini-yoga retreat experiences you can do at home. Together we'll enjoy nourishing sessions full of movement, breath, reflection and meditation.
We explore various techniques to help us release built up stress, in additional to all the wonderful things that come from sharing the practice as a group (yes, even online this is possible), flowing with our breath and connecting with a quieter and calmer inner state.
A retreat is 2 hours in duration and there are currently two sessions scheduled.
Each will have a slightly different focus, so if you're keen for some continuity, while also encouraging progress and further learning - why not sign up for both.

A yoga mat, decent internet connection, a laptop / tablet / computer / phone with a camera
The Zoom App (ie: The Zoom Client for Meetings)
To make your tech set up as straightforward as possible I've created some support notes to help you get the tech up and running smoothly. You'll receive these with your booking confirmation email.
Invite a friend
Why not do this online home yoga retreat with a friend? You may not be physically in the same space, but practicing together can create powerful connections even when we're physically far apart.
Preparing for your mini at-home-retreat
Taking some time out for yourself is really important right now. So if you need to, negotiate with others in your household to have a couple of hours of alone time for our yoga retreat.
Set up your space ahead of time. Gather your yoga mat and props and try to clear away as much as you can around your space, so that you’re not surrounded by work things or other distractions. If you’re in a small space, perhaps you can cover your work desk with a scarf or blanket to reduce any feeling of clutter around you. You might like to add candles or incense to create a cosy and more serene atmosphere.
