A short time of separation from the world can quickly reconnect us to the deeper inner quietness of ourselves.  

Yoga Nidra – relaxation is more than just overcoming everyday levels of tiredness. Yoga Nidra is an essential tool for reducing fatigue and maintaining good health.  Done regularly the practice unburdens the mind, body and emotions of tensions and sustains emotional balance in the nervous system.

This Retreat offers you a supportive space to unravel accumulated stress and truly re-align with your inner quieter self.  Take home a group of simple practices to sustain and support change and wellness as an experience on a daily basis:  

Relaxation through a practical program of

  • yoga postures and deep breathing techniques,
  • yoga nidra - deep relaxation,
  • meditative walks in the forest,
  • awareness of the breath for relaxation

Working with your Life - setting positive foundations for change in thinking, behaviour & actions

The Gunas, a map for self-transformation

20 - 23 Jun     $650 Book Here

In yoga there are several major maps of “everything” which can be used to explain fundamental qualities of our internal world and the exterior world around us.

The three gunas, or qualities, are at a deep level in one such map.

The gunas – sattwa, rajas and tamas – may be referred to respectively as light, activity and stillness, or harmony, movement and inertia. These qualities form a kind of substratum to the universe and are reflected in the world around us and in our inner nature. The three gunas encompass and transcend the mundane and go well beyond our normal thinking and understanding of ourselves. At an ordinary level the effects of the three gunas may be observed within us and also in the world. An observation of these three forces in life helps us to understand ourselves and our relationship with our surroundings. By understanding the three gunas we are better able to identify true harmony and make steps towards achieving it.
