What is the retreat about?
Join me for 4 days of Critical Alignment yoga and meditation!
Each retreat day will be initiated by a meditation, in which we silence our analytical brain, and move towards a sensing and feeling energy. From that state we use the Critical Alignment (CA) yoga method to liberate tension from our system that is often unconscious, but influences how you feel, act, and behave. Through CA yoga, we become aware of chronic tension, stress and holding patterns. As we become aware of these patterns, we can liberate this tension, and free up energy that was stored to ‘hold and protect’ (stress response). This allows us to move towards a deeper sense of calm, joy, and an overall loving state (rest and repair response).
The mid-day is open for you to feel into what your system needs: deep rest, energising movement, a good laugh, or an inspiring conversation. It is all up to you!
