Embodying the Elements
3 day yoga residential retreat at Bala Brook, Dartmoor National Park
Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd April 2023
We are not separate from this Earth, we are of this Earth. Our bodies, minds and emotions are reflective of our circumstances and habits of living. Finding space to step back, process and embody the elements in a balanced way takes deep compassion and regular practice.
Join me as we explore the elements; Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether both through practice and through immersion in the natural surroundings of Bala Brook. Explore how we can become aware of their qualities within us, understanding where imbalances lie and how we can practice to restore balance in order to experience freedom, peace and greater joy.
Price: £425 p.p. includes all food, all yoga & accommodation.
