SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY 2012 KENSINGTON PALACE GARDENS
Brighten up a winter’s day and join us for a full day of varied yoga, hike, fresh food and good company.
My next one day yoga retreat is Saturday February 18th Notting Hill and is booking up fast. For anyone who has not attended before, these one day, retreats have proved to be really enjoyable, both for us organising them and for the participants, many of whom are now regular and enthusiastic attendees.
You will have the opportunity to develop your practice during an extensive morning session which we will spend exploring how we can transform the intensity of our practice by awakening the core body. We will focus on a sequence of asana that really engage with our core muscles and learn how maintaining a conscious connection to the core enhances our practice. We will also have plenty of time in this extended class to work on various core strengthening techniques and longer held poses that bring with them a deeper, meditative quality to our yoga practice. The morning session will be followed by a freshly prepared vegetarian lunch after which we will enjoy some fresh air on one of our traditional yoga hikes together. We have chosen this venue for its proximity to Kensington Gardens and The Serpentine.
After our walk, the afternoon class will be more restorative and focused on relaxation. It will comprise yoga gently, breathing techniques and deep, guided relaxation known as yoga nidra. You will get the chance to experience the essence of yoga and the way it unites us all over a longer period than you can in a regular yoga class and have the opportunity to get to know some lovely like-minded people, enjoy some beautiful urban scenery and return home feeling thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated. We remain committed to keeping our day retreats as affordable to as many people as possible so for this retreat we will be retaining our 2009/10/11 cost of £60. This price includes all drinks, snacks and the freshly prepared vegetarian lunch.
