    • Candlelight Yoga with Sunnah Rose

      Flow into Autumn with Ease
      September 7th, 5:30pm – 8pm

      Yoga by Candlelight, Easing you into Autumn 

      " Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.  If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings. "
      - Rumi

      Come and join me for an evening of yoga by candlelight; arrive in autumn grounded, balanced and open to whatever change is happening.

      We will spend the early evening exploring yoga postures in a strong but gentle flow, focussing on the stability in our bodies and minds, using the breath as our anchor and from there discovering true presence.  We will explore a variety of balances to help us enjoy the space in the centre and inversions to explore how that centre can change.

      This workshop will include restorative yoga, some pranayama and will end with a lovely cup of herbal tea and a treat before heading off for a relaxed evening.

      Limited space so do book in.

      Cost:£30

  • A Weekend of Yoga and Meditation, EssexOct 24th - 26th, 2014

    A Weekend of Yoga and Meditation: Transformation

    Debden House, Epping Forest, Loughton, Essex
    24th – 26th October, 2014

    Yoga and Meditation Weekend

    Come and join us for a weekend of yoga, meditation and hands on activities that will revitalise your body and mind in a safe and calming space.

    The days are getting shorter and as the season shifts, the leaves are changing to their autumnal shades of orange and brown. Life is full of cycles and changes and at times this can be unsettling. But it's also a chance for us to re-evaluate, shift our focus and alter our habits to enable positive transformation, which aligns us more with our higher selves.

    This retreat will allow you to explore the nature of change and to align yourself with what's most important to you so that the shift in season brings with it a transformative shift within you, leaving you feeling connected and alive. You’ll also have a chance to create your own ‘life mandala’, a process that will allow you to prioritise and connect with what’s really important to you.

    Set in the beautiful grounds of Debden House in Loughton, www.debdenhouse.com (Just on the outskirts of London and easy to get to from Liverpool Street), surrounded by lush countryside, this retreat is fully catered and the food is delicious and wholesome.
     
    We look forward to creating a friendly, open atmosphere and sharing a weekend of relaxation and revitalisation with you.
