The Yoga and Mindfulness
With Tim and Anna’s combined years of experience in running yoga and mindfulness retreats, locally and internationally, you will be encouraged and supported to take your practice to that ‘next level’. By removing yourself from the competing demands and unavoidable distractions of a ‘modern’ lifestyle you come closer to your true essence. By participating in the yoga and mindfulness sessions throughout the weekend you will be supported to connect more deeply with yourself and to explore how this positively affects your interactions with the external world. You will leave the weekend feeling more grounded and yet uplifted, rejuvenated.
Tim is a highly respected Iyengar yoga teacher whose approach is filled with both depth and humour. With his skilful use of props – Tim can equally support and inspire those who are new to yoga, those with many years of experience and those with injuries.
Using a range of techniques Anna offers a gentle and thoughtful approach to mindfulness that will leave participants feeling less anxious and with a greater sense of connection between their inner and outer being.
First and foremost the food will be delicious. It will also be nutritious, vegetarian and gluten-free. Snacks and hot beverages will be available throughout the day.
