We run accessible, nurturing yoga mindfulness meditation retreats for everyone, from complete beginners, to  those who may be a little more advanced. Mindfulness is a about focusing on the present moment, using techniques such as yoga, breathing and meditation. Find a relaxing position, a place of comfort, on cushions or a chair, with a comfortable but erect posture and close your eyes. The first minute is spent focusing on where you are now, the contact between your body and the seat and the sensations around your body. Inevitably, your mind may wander, you simply acknowledge where it went and gently bring your focus back to the breath without being critical about yourself. The third minute involves a deeper awareness from the breath and across the rest of your body, observing how it feels, but breathing, moment to moment. Our retreat includes small groups, allowing guests to make lasting frienships, many of which return year after year.
We are surrounded by environmental pollutants, toxins, non nutrient dense diets and constant stress which all affect our immune system causing it to weaken and be susceptible to disease.
Adding yoga into your life is an awesome way to build a strong defense system for your body.

Our immune system consists of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body and fight off infections and diseases. The lymph nodes move through the body by muscle contractions, unlike blood, which is pumped naturally by the heart. Initially, the discipline of Hatha yoga—the physical aspect of yoga—was developed as a vehicle for meditation.

Send your heart upwards and backwards, creating a back bend in your thoracic spine, where your rib cage is.

To exit, draw your low belly in to activate your core, inhale and press into your forearms to gently lift your head from the earth.
The Indian sage Patanjali has given us the first systematic introduction of his classical work, in the second century on yogic philosophy.
Yoga in today’s times is associated with the postures and asanas which is only one aspect of yoga. The asanas of Hatha yoga prepare the body, and particularly the nervous system, creating the necessary physical strength and stamina that allowed the mind to remain calm and peaceful. It was studied as part of Eastern Philosophy and began as a movement for health and vegetarianism around the 1930’s.
It is produced out of dissatisfaction and dejection when there is negative interaction between the self-projection and the adverse internal as well as the external environmental conditions.
