"Yoga" comes from the Sanskrit word "yug" which means to unite, uniting our individual self with that which gave rise to it - the Divine. And the practices of yoga and meditation are the means for this.

21st      Mini Meditation Retreat   Saturday  2.00 - 4.45pm    $60

 

 

Something we have lost in the 21st century is the ability to just sit still and be content, without trying to achieve something or constantly improve ourselves.  This afternoon workshop will include gentle yoga, deep breathing and deep relaxation, together with the stillness of meditation practice, so you can experience the joy of being.  

 

There will be time for philosophy and discussion at the end.  Beginners very welcome, we were all beginners at one time!    The retreat is guided throughout.    BOOK HERE    or contact us.   

 

"When everything drops away, the fullness of life is there, the ease, the grace, the contentment, the peace.  Who we are is revealed, thoughts may come and go, but silence and stillness are always there. "
