Ahh, November. A perfect time to take a few hours away from the arguably hardest month of the year and spend it with your self — a bit of stretching, breathing, very restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and a few hours away in a peaceful place, with peaceful sounds, tea, treats,  and others also wanting a little relief from a crazy world and challenging 30-day block on the calendar. A restorative mini-retreat.

JAN 1    New Year’s SANKALPA:
                Guided Meditation, Yoga, and 
                Deep Resolution-Setting — 
                a mini-retreat . $45
                Monday . 11 am-3 pm

SANKALPA . SETTING RESOLVE — For those who want to start their new year in contemplation for meaningful intention-setting. 

An afternoon of contemplative silence. We start with a brief stretch to centre and move into a guided meditation of the questions needed to find our one most meaningful resolution for the year – followed by quiet time to write any thoughts / questions / intentions arising from the meditation. Moving into 45 minutes of accessible yoga, stretch and flow. A silent break with tea, snacks and personal thought/contemplation. Closing with some restorative yoga leading into a long deep yoga nidra to create space for answers and intention to arise, and set more deeply. We will take home the awareness, space and contemplation of the session, and our own stickers for around the house and car, to surprise and gently remind ourselves and perhaps others of what we hoped for from the year.
