Rest & Restore
Yoga Nidra Workshop with Julie Bladon
You will enjoy a relaxing and calming meditative yoga practice before embarking on a Yoga Nidra journey.
Yoga Nidra is an ancient tantric method where the mind and body is in deep relaxation.
A single hour of Yoga Nidra is as restful as four hours of conventional sleep. This workshop is for anyone interested in relaxation and meditation, whether you are brand new or experienced in meditation. You will be fully guided.
The practice of Yoga Nidra releases all types of muscular, emotional and mental tension. You not only enjoy complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, but also get to explore the tremendous powers hidden in the deeper layers of subconscious mind.

SNOW MOON WOMEN'S SACRED CACAO CEREMONY with Tania Rose Fox
SAT 16th FEBRUARY 1 - 4.30pm
Advance booking required – limited spaces
£35 earlybird until 1st Feb / £40 full price
Please note this is not a yoga workshop (so it’s fine if you have no yoga experience – you will be seated & then lying down for most of this session) but if you are a woman in need of heart opening and if you enjoy yoga nidras & guided meditations you will love this!
Join Tania for this special Snow Moon Cacao Ceremony to see you through the rest of winter & into the first budding signs of spring. Cacao is the purest form of chocolate there is: a powerful aid to heart-opening & a true superfood which has been used for thousands of years to heal, nourish and empower in a tradition which goes back to the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica.
A sacred cacao ceremony is a powerful & beautiful opportunity to experience heart-opening and emotional release in a different way to a yoga class. After setting intentions for your ceremony and drinking ceremonial-grade Peruvian cacao, you will be lead on a guided meditative journey to dive deep and connect with your deepest intuition assisted by the powerful energy of the cacao plant : get your ego chatter out of the way & tune in more deeply to hear the whispering of your heart, and find the clarity & insight to see and let go of whatever is blocking your heart from being fully open, joyful, bold & brave, so you can move forward in your life.
Cacao ceremonies are a wonderful complement to your yogic journey and the path of self-exploration and healing, allowing you to release blockages around anahata chakra and tap into your higher level of awareness – access the jnanamaya kosha and experience the blissful being of anandamaya kosha! Tania is an experienced yoga teacher who began working with cacao as an extension of her own experiences of heart-opening practices; she is one of only a handful of trained cacaoistas working in the UK, & loves sharing this amazing yet gentle & loving plant medicine with curious-hearted, open-minded souls as another pathway to experiencing greater wholeness.

Mini day retreat
With ellao & Louise
Saturday 16th March 11.30am – 6.15pm
Cost: £80 or £70 early bird (paid before 15th Feb)
Our lives are moving at an ever-faster speed as we rush from engagement to engagement; work, family and social commitments all demanding our time, effort and attention. Keeping centred, connected and in alignment with doing what is best for us can fall by the wayside. in an attempt to keep on top of life and the pressures it produces. We want to be and do the best for those around us, but this can come at the cost of our own health and sense of wellness. When we strive too much for others and outside gratification, we can forget about making sure that our self-care needs are taken care of. It is such a simple thing to live by – if we look after ourselves properly physically, mentally and emotionally then we will better be able to take care of our responsibilities towards others because we can balance our needs and obligations to give us a more fulfilling life experience……… but how often do we do we actually commit to equal emphasis to the aspects of our lives? Join us for an mini Day Retreat – Finding Balance in Your Life; a day dedicated to helping you find re-connection, rest and focus on your health and well-being. Designed to assist you in dealing with the day to day pressures and strains of living. We will guide you through a carefully selected mix of well-being tools to access physical, mental emotional and spiritual release helping you let go of stress and tension and find empowerment and focus to take you forward with more equilibrium and the all too elusive balance that makes all the difference.
TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH® Our Transformational Breath® session will use a ground breaking conscious breath system to reunite us with the most fundamental of human support mechanism for life – our breath. We will learn how opening up your respiratory capacity will help you to feel energised, lighter, more focused and vital as well as aiding progress with your yoga practice too. Most of us use only between 25 – 35% of our respiratory capacity and yet our bodies get 70% of our energy via breathing, 70% of detoxification also happens via respiration. Given those stats is it any wonder that you may feel lethargic, weighed down and experience mind fog? Yet because breathing happens automatically we tend not to pay any attention to it and when we do, we connect to our bodies most fundamental, powerful and significant tool to expand health, well-being, physical potential, peace of mind, stress management and relaxation. The good news is, there is a way to turn this around. This work can be very powerful and effect immediate, profound and lasting change that positively benefits you and with sustained practice you have a tool for infinite expansion of your life experience on every level including a feel of presence and the ability to change your mood in the moment. Whatever your experience and preconceptions of breath work, prepare to have your experience turned on its head!
MEDITATION a soothing meditation to end the day. Taking on the practice of meditation – the ability to monitor the mind and slow down persistent chatter and thoughts has been well documented to bring about many benefits to our system as a whole; positively reducing stress, anxiety, depression, blood pressure, whilst increasing concentration and well-being among many other benefits. Taking you on a journey through a simple meditative practice will seal the rituals of the retreat whilst giving you some simple tips to incorporate on a regular basis helping you to move through your days in a calmer, more manageable way.
