In taking a retreat, which offers a sense of seclusion from the world, our busy-ness and obligations gives the opportunity to review ourselves objectively, with the opportunity to reset and refocus on what is important for us and our wellness.

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 change, set new directions, lower stress levels, improves the quality of our relationships, and enables us to access greater levels of clarity, insight, and focus.

The sessions will focus on:

  • Yoga nidra – deep restorative guided relaxation
  • Sankalpa – personal resolve for setting new directions
  • Yoga postures for physical health
  • Practical sitting and forest walk meditations
  • Personal time for contemplation
  • Simplicity in nature 
  • Reconnecting with self and disconnection from the digital world

Know more about Dr. Craig Hassed

Mindfulness is both a form of meditation and a way of living. It is a generic skill with an infinite number of applications from the most mundane to the most profound. Being able to effectively engage attention is a pre-requisite for virtually anything else we want to do and for that reason is the single most important life-skill we ever learn.

 


This practical and experiential weekend will explore the science, philosophy and practice of mindfulness across a wide variety of settings including enhancing our mental and physical health, slowing ageing, improving relationships, reducing stress and facilitating better performance and learning.

A Yoga 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 awareness.

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