BALANCING THE ELEMENTS

"The quality of our life, our mind and our health is maintained by the tattvas" - Yogi Bhajan

"Conquer the mind - win the world" - Guru Nanak

Join us at our annual Summer Kundalini Yoga retreat, which is now in it's 14th year! This year, the Retreat synchronises with the Summer Solstice, on the 21st, to allow us to tune-in to the heightened energy of the Sun. Come with us on a journey through the divine teachings of Kundalini Yoga, meditation and being present in the company and vibration of blessed souls in a warm and friendly environment.

Over the weekend you will experience the dynamic practice of Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations, alongside mantra, movement, gong relaxation, healthy vegan food, enjoyable company and walking the grounds at Fircroft to lift your spirit and connect to your heart.

The theme of this year's retreat is Balancing the Elements with an exploration of the five tattvas: ether, air, earth, fire and water. Through the understanding of the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and the experience of Kundalini Yoga, we will balance the elements within us to help avoid burn-out and feeling drained of energy. The mind has been given to us to serve and by bringing our mind under the command of our soul, we can bring the tattvas into balance to better align with our character and identity.

The retreat features a range of KRI qualified professional Teachers. Therapeutic sessions will be available during the retreat and participants can join any of the workshops and activities by choice or have free time to relax.

The retreat is open to all, regardless of any previous yoga experience. Everyone is welcome but the Retreat is aimed at adults due to the topics to be discussed.

The Retreat will take place at Fircroft College, a residential adult college based in the historic home of George Cadbury and set in six acres of beautiful grounds in Selly Oak, South Birmingham. The college is easily accessible from Selly Oak train station, major motorways and bus routes. Secure free parking is available on-site. Healthy and nutricious vegan meals will be lovingly prepared on-site by the Colleges' catering team. Residential accomodation includes confortable ensuite bedrooms with tea-making facilities to ensure delegates are rested and refreshed. Most rooms are single occupancy with a small number of double rooms for guests who would like to share. Please get in touch if you have any specific requirements around accomodation, dietry needs/alergies or access requirements.

Delegates can upgrade and arrive from 3pm on Friday for an additional cost which includes bed and breakfast for Friday 21st June.

Book your place online through Event Bright.
