“I am neither of the east nor of the west,
no boundaries list within my breast.” - Rumi
The power of the breath transforms perception and experience, providing the underlying ground base for many of the wide and varied practices within yoga. By releasing tension and calming the nervous system, much benefit can be derived from a yoga practice that is carried on the wings of the breath: renewed perception; depth and subtlety of experience; and profound insight.
During this bank holiday one day retreat, the time-honoured practices of yoga and story-telling combine beautifully to offer a nurturing environment where the body and mind can rejuvenate and find peaceful accord. To embark upon a retreat is to dive deep into subjective experience and reflect - breath, movement, and story are the means. An ‘urban’ retreat offers a perfect way to experience retreat on a long bank holiday weekend, while still being able to attend to the responsibilities of everyday life and family.
The morning presents a more dynamic breath based yoga practice that relieves tension and creates spaciousness in the body. The afternoon includes restorative yoga where poses are supported and held for longer periods of time. Throughout the day, Sarah Deco will share stories that support the focus of the day and lead contemplations and embodied movement that inspire, provide food for thought, and offer insight. The day culminates in meditation.
