Yoga and Ayurveda Virtual Self-Care Retreat
About the Retreat
This year, we are holding our first Virtual Retreat. It will take place July 17th – 22nd. We would love you to join us for five days of self-care, based on the wisdom traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda, when we will share our own personal practices with you. We will open our home on-line and invite you into our world of living Yoga and Ayurveda.
This retreat is about taking a break and nurturing yourself on every level. Remember: SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH. If you want to reach your full potential in the world, great self-care is essential. You cannot give to others if you are operating from a place of depletion. We have structured the retreat so that the bulk of practice takes place first thing, setting the tone for your day. Ideally, you will have time off from work so that you can use the day to rest, reflect and take time in nature. (If you have to work, that’s ok – the practice times should allow you to do that and if you miss a session, it will be recorded so you can access it at your own convenience.)
We will start with an introduction on Friday 17th Jul from 7-8pm. The format of each day Sat 18th – Wed 22nd will be as follows:
|06:30||Centreing||20mins||A daily themed intention based on the wisdom on the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras.|
|06:50||Energy Movement||20mins||Simple movements to integrate into your daily routine to remove stagnation from the body in preparation for asana practice.|
|07:10||Asana||60mins||Traditional Hatha Yoga postures – dynamic morning sequences to help purify the body and remove blocks so that energy can flow efficiently.|
|08:20||Kriyas||15mins||Key cleansing practices in preparation for pranayama|

|12:30||Cooking||60mins||Join us virtually in our kitchen where we will cook a vegetarian lunch together – all recipes provided in advance so that you can cook along with us –based on Ayurveda. (We will go off-line to eat mindfully)|
