Indulge yourself this Christmas
24 November 2013,08:10:53 BST
Let's be honest, January can be testing. You’ve had some time off, parties galore, excessive eating and for some even a tipple or two too many… before you know it your back to work, back in a routine trying to warm yourself with soups and purge yourself with salad to get those extra pounds off… and of course that NEW YEAR promise to not drink quite so much.
I think you need something to look forward to, something that will help you focus and get over those winter blues, something that’s fun and healthy, that’s going to help clear your mind and make you feel great. So what could be better than a beautiful weekend away being enveloped in yoga, fed glorious food, with beautiful settings and lovely company, and all this can be part of your New Year’s resolution to treat yourself better.
When I started running retreats my main idea was to offer them in gorgeous chilled out warm places with the sun and sea to help everyone along their journey into a deep state of relaxation and letting go, but it occurs to me that we should be able to do that everywhere and anywhere. Isn’t that what our practice is about? It shouldn’t cost us an arm and leg and it definitely shouldn’t mean we have the added stress of getting on a plane and the rigmarole of transfer at the other end. And don’t get me wrong, these retreats are still some of the best teaching experiences I have ever had, but yoga should be accessible to everyone and easy to do, so having something closer to home should give more people the chance to participate in these great experiences.
New year's coming soon and one’s willpower is starting to wane and coming along to the winter wellbeing retreat can help them on track as well as showing people that really it’s not about what they look like but about feeling healthy in the mind and the body, feeling good.
This retreat will include dynamic yoga sessions, restorative yoga sessions, pranayama, relaxation and yoga nidra. All food will be vegetarian and refreshments provided throughout your stay. I hope, mostly, that for everyone that comes, 2014 will be a year where they find happiness, wellbeing and enhance their yoga practise with this retreat as a sensational start.
This January 2014, I am teaching a Winter Wellbeing Retreat in East Sussex.
