First Timer’s One-Day Meditation Retreat
Sunday 10 December 2017
Yoga, guided meditations and inspirational talks at a tranquil river-side hideaway
Imagine leaving your stresses and distractions behind for a full day of pampering from the inside out.
Our one-day retreats are much more than a yoga class, much more than a meditation session or an inspirational talk – it’s a day for personal transformation through yoga, meditation, inspiring discussion, wholesome food and fellowship with like-minded people in a beautifully relaxing environment. Engage in practices for the body, mind and soul and leave feeling renewed, recharged and inspired.
This retreat is an opportunity to create greater self-awareness, and gain tools and skills for discovering and connecting with your true nature, the wholesome you.
What to expect:
• Participate in a simple and effective meditation practice
• Take part in gentle flexibilities and yoga poses
• Engage in discussions on yogic wisdom for health and happiness
• Refocus your life’s goals through symbolic ceremony
• Eat wholesome food
• Enjoy the company of like-minded people
• Immerse yourself in the beautiful ambiance of the tranquil river-side Narrows Retreat

Thank you for the inspiring, thought provoking and peaceful workshop last weekend. I feel re connected with the spirit of yoga that so many yoga institutions seem to pass over so very easily. Your personality and home were so welcoming, thank you for such a lovely day. – Sarah
