    Need to recharge? What would you do if you had a weekend off yet do not want to travel too far from home?

    “Silence can be challenging for some people at the beginning of a retreat. Most people, however, come to cherish the silence of retreat. Retreat silence has many benefits. Silence settles the many emotions that are activated by talking, listening, and even in the anticipation of talking. As our mental and emotional lives calm down, our bodies relax. We are then in an attitude of listening and appreciating the value of the outer and inner silence of a retreat setting.” Francis Bennett

    Cultivating mindfulness in our daily life can be an enriching experience. This retreat will give basic guidance to applying the principles of meditation to our everyday activities. Meditation involves a principle of awareness that we can practice in every moment of our life.

    Join us for a weekend retreat of pure relaxation and bliss. Time to slow down, recharge and de-stress. Make space for contemplation, meditation and reflection.

    Samyama Yoga will offer hatha flow, yin and yoga nidra classes as well as guided meditation sessions for your health and well-being. We will offer devotional intentions and ways of exploring and reflecting on the theme individually and in the group. This will include periods of guided and silent meditation (sitting and walking) to strengthen present moment awareness. There are opportunities for quiet time, to go for a walk, read a book and be surrounded with like-minded people. All levels and abilities are welcome. Please bring your own yoga mat and props.

    This weekend will be held partly in silence, allowing us to explore the possibility of tuning in, drawing our attention inwards. Listening, feeling, connecting with our experiences, cultivating an attitude of acceptance, and potential to be with what is through enquiry and curiosity.
