Within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere we aim to present a weekend that encompasses various aspects of Yoga and the means to which to incorporate these into our daily life. This retreat is suited for people with yoga experience (not for complete beginners). Just a short weekend away to give yourself something positive.
As the season changes from winter to spring so to we can take this opportunity to gently open, stretch ourselves out and re-energise. This weekend away offers you the time and place to have some essential space for yourself to rest deeply, be away from the usual life distractions and business, to tune into your own wishes for your life and prepare for the growth that spring brings. With practice yoga can enrich, inform and illuminate everything you do.
At this retreat we are very please to announce that Swami Madhuram Puri will be joining us and leading some of the programs! Yeah! This will be his first time visiting Australia. Swami Madhuram has been studying and teaching Yoga and Meditation under the guidance of H.H. Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, the author of the system Yoga in Daily Life for the past 12 years. His interest in what is called “Nada Yoga”, the yoga path of sound, has seen Swami Madhuram use his musical skills playing bansuri (Indian bamboo flute) and chants for his own yoga practice as well as sharing it with others. He has previously organised concerts and chanting workshops around the UK, in Europe and India. And now its our turn to benefit from his wonderful talents!
The Meditative music Swami Madhuram offers acts as a medium to help focus the listener’s mind and gradually helps return the mind to its natural, peaceful state. This calm state of mind is an ideal space to let go of the many obstacles that prevent us from feeling happy, content and fulfilled.
The weekend will include:
• inspiring sessions including a Nada Yoga Workshop and Saturday evening concert!
• Meditations guided by Swami Madhuram
• Yoga Nidra - a yogic guide to Deep Relaxation lead by Swami Madhuram
• Yoga Classes, gentle & intermediate levels, lead by our local Yoga in Daily Life teachers
• freshly prepared delicious vegetarian meals by a qualified chef
• walks • periods of silence • free time for resting, reading, writing or ... • time by yourself & some social time too
