In the morning, there’ll be an extended and creative yoga flow, with plenty of poses to enocurage the journey within. Threaded through the flow will be time to journal, hints on self-care relevant to this darkest time of year, fortifying essential oils and sharing of wintry words. We’ve allowed plenty of room in the programme for you to enjoy (and digest) the hearty, nourishing and warm vegan lunch we’ll prepare (including our favourite homemade focaccia and a hot fruit pud) before we return to the studio for a gently powerful sound and breath journey, combining conscious connected breathing with the heavenly sounds of Wendy’s crystal singing bowls. And then the day will conclude with a bonfire in the studio garden as the sun sets, mugs of cacao to warm our hands and spiced cakes to fill that last bit of space in our tummies, before heading home with a seasonal gift as a thank you for being with us. Bliss!
We’re hosting the retreat at Alchemise yoga studio, a luxurious and nurturing space (including underfloor heating!) that will be festooned with candles for our day together ensuring a suitably ethereal atmosphere for winter sol
All practices on the day (yoga flow and restorative practices, a sound and breath journey and a ceremonial bonfire), a seasonal welcome smoothie, a nourishing warm lunch, herbal teas throughout the day and spiced cacao and cake to enjoy at the bonfire. You’ll also get a special seasonal gift to take home with you. All yoga equipment will be provided (or bring your own, if you prefer)
Benefits of a Retreat Day:
I’m Emma. Like all of us, I wear many hats. Alongside Breathe4Good I’m a Mum to three (just about still) teens and run events and open days from my garden in Northamptonshire. I love words (novels, poetry, memoir, self-development…I devour them all), running, cold-water swimming, yoga, herbs, preserving (so satisfying!) and my garden. I’m passionate about wellbeing, good nutrition and leading a balanced life.
My discovery of breathwork in 2018 was the catalyst for powerful personal transformation, culminating in the creation of my wellbeing practice.
