Yoga's profound relaxation practices of yoga nidra & deep breathing draw the mind inward and fill you with a sense of inner peace.  




Be nurtured by:

  • relaxation in beautiful natural surroundings + practical teachings

Beneath the surface of everyday life experiences there is profound state of balance.  To reach this state of balance, relaxation is an essential tool for reducing fatigue and maintaining good health between body, mind & emotions.

During a Relaxation Retreat the daily practices of yoga and Yoga Nidra offered, restores a sense of inner harmony, unloads the burdens and distractions of the mind and reconnects us to the more subtle layers of ourselves.

“Silence is the source of true strength” Lao Tzu

 


Winter is a time when the natural outward moving energies intuitively begin to turn inwards making a winter silent retreat a perfect time for self awareness and reflective practices to discover the quieter inner you.  

The ashram situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest is a perfect silent retreat environment offering time and space, not always available in other forms of living. 

Make a Sankalpa – intention and commit to a silent retreat to recognize the present mind and cultivate the attitude of becoming a watcher to ones actions & reactions.

The body cannot move without an instruction, but unfortunately the mind does.  The more we are conscious and present naturally the mind becomes less busy, more focused and clear without effort, revealing deeper understanding and inner contentment.

The retreat includes:

•    yoga asanas & pranayama become the basis for stillness
•    sitting meditation: Antar Mouna – attitude of a witness to cultivate equanimity and inner silence
•    Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation for body, mind & emotions
•    walking meditation: using the senses to be present 
•    encouraged to keep a personal diary
•    optional: drawing, clay art, mandala art, writing of mantra

Course Overview

 

 

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.
