Jivamukti Yoga Autumn Equinox Mini Retreat

When day and night are equal in both hemispheres we too can experience balance and integration when we connect to our inner selves. This equinox is a prime time to rebalance after the intensive work and activities of the Summer.
 
Autumn is a time when nature starts to pull its energy inwards. In this retreat we will honour this inward turning transition by practicing Yoga in a way that activates the energy of groundedness and inner awareness. Through specific asana and contemplation you will celebrate what you have intensively worked on over the Summer, in the warm growing months (your own personal harvest).
 
Autumn in particular is also associated with physical, emotional and spiritual transformation and is a time for letting go of the things that are not serving you. In celebrating your own personal harvest, it’s also worth considering what seeds haven’t grown or developed. This gives you an opportunity to release the past and move forward with clarity. Again using specific asana to encourage introspection, in this day retreat you will be able to reflect on fresh new ideas, concepts, proposals – new seeds you can sow over winters incubation.
 
The day will also include two Yoga practices – beginning with a dynamic Jivamukti Yoga class and ending with a Restorative Moon Days Yoga class – the latter allowing you to celebrate the Summer that has passed and reflect on new seeds of intentions for the winter. There will also be discussion of daily Ayurvedic rituals and practices to ease into the colder months.
 
The early bird cost of this full day mini-retreat is $120 if paid prior to Monday March 20th 2017. Price increases after this date to $140. Freshly ground coffee and tea, yummy nearly naughty snacks and a delicious warming vegan buffet lunch is included (as always) in the price!
Just message Go Yoga or Jacqueline Teusner for registration details to secure your place.
*Money will be fully refunded if cancellation is made prior to Monday March 20th 2017, absolutely no refunds after this date.

A Restorative Yoga practice encourages you to consciously surrender tension to the forces of gravity, to keep relaxing and softening throughout the practice to let go of tension. This practice encourages you to be in a clear and dynamic relationship with your environment, so that you are present to this softening of stress and tension, present to what may be revealed to you from letting go. Restorative Yoga offers you an opportunity to sense and feel where the source of your stress lies, revealing what is obscured by your stress, so you can process it to change. You come to know who you are, where you are going and what it is you want to do and be. You become open to your highest potential!

A restorative practice is ideal for people looking for deep relaxation/meditation or for those with specific needs such as: insomnia; fatigue; high blood pressure; injury; recovering from illness or surgery. Each class is catered to the current needs of every student.

Cathie McGill has been teaching Yoga & Meditation therapeutically for 19 years and has various Diplomas and Certificates in complimentary health & bodywork spanning over 25 years. She has a diploma in Yoga and has an integrative, intuitive, authentic approach.

Turning within through Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Interested in some precious downtime for the body and mind? Slow down and turn within on Saturday July 18th at 2:30pm with Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra (the Yoga of sleep).

Restorative Yoga uses gentle movement, props and intentional breath work to facilitate deep release in the connective tissue and to soothe the nervous system.

Yoga Nidra, a deeply relaxing practice that generates a state of conscious sleep, or active rest, is a great antidote for our otherwise turbo-charged lifestyles. It is as close to sleep as you can be in a meditative state, without actually falling asleep. As it works directly on the energetic body, it is often cited that one 20 minute session of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 3 hours of deep restorative sleep.

Want to find out more? Then come and join in! You’ll discover how to create your own restorative yoga props out of everyday items so you can practice at home or while traveling, as well as learn 10 simple steps to practice Yoga Nidra on your own. The early bird cost of the special 2-hour class is $30 if paid prior to July 15th 2015. Price increases after this date to $36.

*Money will be fully refunded if cancellation is made prior to Thursday July15, absolutely no refunds after this date.
