Move With Clarity - New Year's Retreat
Has 2019 been a particularly challenging year for you? Does it feel like something important is coming to an end, and the new is not yet clear?
This New Year’s Yoga and Coaching Retreat is an opportunity to mark a meaningful transition in your life. Over a period of 5 days, we take you through an in-depth coaching process that helps you reflect on the events of the past twelve months, see the path you are on and make self-determined choices for your coming year. Based on a daily yoga and meditation practice, this journey aligns your body with your mind and sets you on a path to a fulfilled 2020.
The Coaching Process
Based on a series of guided exercises, you reflect back onto the events of the year that just passed. Together, we bring the old year to a close with a fire ritual on 31 December. Coming into stillness as the New Year arrives, the big picture of your life emerges and you can see the path you are on. Going into action, you plant new seeds for the coming year. During the week, you work individually or with a buddy of your choosing. Personal coaching sessions are offered throughout the retreat.
The Yoga Practice
Our morning practice starts with meditation and connection to the breath. The asana practice is designed for all levels. Adjustments and assistance are given for beginners and for advanced practitioners. Together, we create a safe & non-judging space to explore and listen to our bodies. Some of the yoga sessions include a gentle & passive practice of Yin Yoga to access the deeper layers of the fascia. Yin Yoga allows time for the body to reflect on the day and to fully unwind.
