Why mindfulness and gentle yoga? 

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This can lead to feelings of stress, anxiety, and burnout. That's where mindfulness and gentle yoga come in.

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present in the moment, letting go of distractions and negative thoughts. By incorporating mindfulness into your daily life, you can reduce stress, improve focus and concentration, and promote overall well-being.

Gentle yoga is a slow-paced form of yoga that focuses on stretching and relaxation rather than strenuous poses. It's suitable for all levels and can help improve flexibility, balance, and muscle strength. Additionally, gentle yoga can help calm the mind and release tension in the body.

By combining mindfulness and gentle yoga on our retreat, you'll have the opportunity to unplug from your busy life and tune into yourself. You'll leave feeling refreshed, centred, and more at peace.
