Yoga & Mindfulness in Nature

April 5, 2019 - April 7, 2019

R1650 - R1950

           Yoga & Meditation in Nature

  An Autumn retreat 

   Mari-Louise van der Walt  and  Candice Janks

Nature offers us a space to encounter the rich layers of reality. In the way of the labyrinth or spiral, Nature’s cycles keep bringing us back for a renewed encounter, a deeper exploration of ourselves and our connection with the web of life. Our body and senses are thresholds through which we experience the joy of this gift.

Autumn is a time for reflection and gratitude, but also for contemplating the balance between light and dark, letting go, and the impermanence of things. Physically, this season is often associated with a period of anxiety, depression, insomnia, brittle skin and feeling off-balance. Within traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic and other integrated, holistic systems of thinking, deepening our connection with the Earth supports us through the transitional period of late Summer and Autumn.

On this retreat we will work with movement (yoga asanas) and breathing (pranayama), presence or mindfulness (dharana) and meditation (dhyana). We will practice both hatha vinyasa and yin forms of movement.

No prior experience is needed; Please bring a yoga mat, a light blanket or shawl and a journal.
