Description

Day Yoga Retreat at Hackney Tennis Club. Spring into summer! Take a day away from your phone and the royal wedding for some self care and space. Inhaling the warm, golden, nourishment of summer and exhaling out the dark cold days of winter. Arrive between 10-10.30am and be greeted with a cup of herbal tea or a fresh coffee. The room is upstairs and has huge windows so there is a feeling of being outside in the park. After a long seated guided meditation to bring us into the present moment, we will spend the morning practicing a 2.5 hour Vinyasa Flow Workshop with an awesome soundtrack. Expect to laugh, fall over, get back up, maybe balance on your hands and feet but mostly stretch out, play physically and breathe more deeply. We will pause to look at various postures in greater detail some more advanced depending on the level of the group. If you have any questions about postures there will be time to ask them and I will offer suggestions and support to get into more challenging postures more easily with the use of props. We will also look at the simpler postures making sure alignment is safe and correct and even look at transistions between the postures allowing sequences to flow more easily. Catrin works with music to enhance your experience of the yoga practice and help you to relax and flow. We will cultivate balance in our bodies and positivity in our minds through the practice of pranayama and asana. Catrin will also talk about elements of yoga philosophy focusing on "non attachment" and "letting go".

At 1pm we take a pleasant walk to the river for lunch - lunch is not included in the price of the retreat but the cafe is reasonable and has beautiful views of the river - and the food healthy (delicious vegeatrian and vegan options). We take a short walk to enjoy being away from urban stress, and then return back to the space for an afternoon of blissful, quieter Restorative Yoga (longer held postures supported by bolsters) and a Yoga Nidra (guided meditation practiced in savasana). Expect to float home and (hopefully!) sleep better and experience less stress the following week. Bolsters, blankets, eye bags, belts and blocks provided. Please bring a mat if you have one, if not drop me an e mail, I have some I can bring along. Everyone welcome. All levels catered for.
