My next yoga day is being held once more at the beautiful Black Mountains Barns. This is a lovely peaceful venue surrounded by breath taking views. Time spent here allows you to fully immerse yourself in all aspects of a yoga practice.
For our use we have a purpose built yoga studio with underfloor heating and all equipment needed (mats, blocks, blankets, straps and eye pillows), along with a sitting room for lunch and refreshments, and a garden if the autumn weather is kind to us that day! So far this year we have been blessed with brilliant sunshine at each yoga day here!
We will begin the day with a cuppa and chat before enjoying a 2 hour physical practice in the studio. Autumn is a time for harvesting our fruits of the previous seasons, preparing for shorter darker days ahead. The trees are our greatest teachers at this time as they easily let go of their leaves, teaching us its ok to let go of anything that is no longer serving a purpose to our health and wellbeing. The yoga practice will reflect the seasonal changes around us, as we begin to slow down a little, turning inwards to reflect and feel gratitude for all that we have experienced and achieved so far this year.
Lunch will be served and enjoyed over a relaxed 2 hour period. The food will be vegetarian (can be gluten free and vegan too) Carole-Anna will be cooking a simple yet nourishing light lunch for everyone, with sweet treats to follow, and as much tea and other refreshments as you wish.
After lunch, we will take some time outside together (weather permitting) to explore the local autumn colours and to be guided through a short meditation by myself.
Once back in the studio, I will help you to wind down and really relax with particular breathing techniques, meditation, restorative yoga poses and to finish yoga nidra. Nidra is conscious sleep, and is the most wonderful way to fully relax every fibre of your being, releasing stress and tension, turning off the stress response of your adrenals, calming the nervous system, enabling you to fully let go. This is a must for strengthening the immune system, ready for winter.
As always, we'll enjoy a cuppa and some homemade cake before leaving, and when you do you'll hopefully feel as if you've had a whole weekend away to yourself!
The cost per person is £60, with a £30 deposit to secure your place when booking. Payment plan options are available, please just ask.
