Are you tired of running on ‘empty’, trying to balance daily commitments to family and career, always putting yourself last? Living the paradox of most modern women, who seem to have it all and yet are too exhausted to feel joyous and radiant? Do you crave a nurturing space of loving self care? The chance to delve into the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda while holding and sharing a uniquely feminine experience with a group of newly found sisters? Then this Ayurveda Sadhana Weekend might be just the ‘you time’ you need …
This training is also great for yoga teachers who would like to gain a deeper understanding of Ayurveda and use it in their yoga classes.
The wisdom of Ayurveda, applied to women’s healing and health
There is nothing as powerful as a group of women coming together to support one another. On this special 4-day-retreat, seasoned teacher Katie Manitsas will create a sacred space of trust, self care and holistic nourishment by women, for women. A place to rest, re-connect to ourselves and fill our cups, so that we can return home feeling replenished and giving from a place of abundance and joy. Let’s get together to transform our consciousness and tap into the wisdom of the ancients…
