“Balanced Action”

16th-18th June, 2017

“between stability and freedom
between effort and surrender”

Balanced Action is the secret of yoga’s power to create radiant health. When combined with good alignment, balanced action optimises flexibility and strength, accelerates healing, and brings radiant health to all parts of the body. In addition, the circulation of blood, lymph, oxygen and prana is optimised.

The weekend will involve physical practice, meditation, breathing techniques and partner work. Each session will finish with guided meditation that promotes complete physical, mental and emotional healing. Be prepared to lose track of time and let go of the outside world!

On your mat you will learn specific bio-mechanical alignment principles which will afford greater opening, helping to prevent injury and allowing for greater freedom in your yoga postures. Using these actions can give us a safer, stronger and deeper yoga practice. You will understand what muscles to use and how to apply core strength to be able to go deeper in a pose in a safe way.

This retreat will allow you to completely unwind and recalibrate - this practice will balance your body and all of your systems, it will bring you a bit of a sweetness and closeness to yourself and a really nice bright internal space.
