At the beginning of the year we often look back over the year that has just flown by and did we ever Make a Start on that intended yoga, meditation and relaxation routine for much needed health and de-escalation of stress levels!!!

Usually the answer is no because somehow a mountain of other stuff got in the way. 


The Make a Start Yoga & Meditation weekend will focus on building: 

  • yoga postures to develop a good sitting position 
  • awareness of breath
  • cultivating the discipline needed for stillness & breath awareness
  • and progressing to Level 2 the following month Sitting Longer & Stronger 27 - 29 Oct

The benefits of a regular practice of yoga & meditation is summarized as living consciously to experience a joyful way of living. It helps us manage our stress levels, improves the quality of our relationships, and enables us to access greater levels of clarity, insight, and focus.

Five important steps to make a start:

  • Set an intention or sankalpa for regularity
  • Rise a little earlier with the energy of the sun – only 15 minutes 
  • Make sure you have a dedicated space for your practice that is fresh and clean
  • Look forward to your practice and enjoy it
  • Pre-prepare a healthy, fresh and delicious breakfast to mindfully eat without unconsciously picking up the mobile phone, newspaper or magazine

And one more step: don’t leave your home without breathing deeply and taking the benefits of wellness and centeredness out the door with you.

Navaratri, literally meaning 'nine nights', commemorates the slaying of the demons by invoking Rama and the goddess Durga, ensuing victory of good over evil. In yoga, these nine nights are considered by the constellations formed and the ancients, auspicious for conducting an anushthana or fixed sadhana in order to bring about inner transformation.

Over nine nights of mantra chanting, havan and satsang, negative tendencies are rooted out and alignment with the positive takes place. The power of Devi, or cosmic energy, is invoked in three forms - Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati - thereby awakening the appropriate energy needed for transformation to take place. 

Firstly by cleaning and purifying the inner environment; secondly by decorating, beautifying and nourishing the inner landscape; and lastly, allowing energy to flow creatively in an appreciation of life itself.

On the final day all sadhana and any personal austerities are ceased and Vijaya the victory day is celebrated by havan and expressing joy and upliftment for the beauties and abundance showered upon us in life.

Course Overview

A Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of mindfulness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

During the Mindfulness Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
