Urban Retreat @ Conway Hall

Spring Clean: A mini retreat to nourish body, mind and soul.

Treat yourself to a day  of relaxation, yoga, mindfulness, cooking, healthy eating and regeneration

In Ayurveda the transition between seasons is the ideal time to cleanse and gently detox the body and mind. This mini retreat celebrating the transition to summer will include a ninety minute session of cooling and restorative hatha yoga focusing on opening the heart, chest and lungs.The session will include a mix of flowing movement alongside meditative, longer held postures. Music will set the tone of the session and support movement. The session will end with deep relaxation using Yoga Nidra to enhance the intention set at the beginning of the class.

The cooking session afterwards is inspired by the six tastes of Ayurveda. Together we will make a meal to celebrate food and community using seasonal ingredients and herbs to gently cool, cleanse and balance the system. You will find out what your Ayurvedic constitution is and come away with some tools to keep it in balance.

The day will end with some mindfulness meditations on life changes and possibilities  in the season to come.

Sat 31 May 2014, 10.00 - 16.00

Registration £60
