Christmas Yoga retreat
This Christmas yoga retreat is reasonably gentle and includes
- gentle postures
- salutation to the sun
- Yoga Nidra deep relaxation
The goal of the course is to introduce you to Satyananda yoga so that you may practice at home after the course.
Or you may like to come along to deepen your yoga practice, and learn to tune inwards more deeply.
One big difference between attending regular weekly yoga classes and going away on a week yoga retreat is that being in a yoga environment allows one break away from the normal life patterns and responsibilities which in turn allows one to experience the practices and their effects to a deeper level in more tranquil surroundings.
