3 Day Yoga, Mindfulness and Chinese Medicine Retreat!
Join Maggie for a 3 day Retreat at Creacon. This Retreat will be a lovely mix of gentle yoga practices, silent and guided meditations and Yin and restorative yoga. I have been teaching Yoga Retreats for 15 years and I have created a retreat that allows space for you to enjoy the benefits of stilling in stillness at the start of our day. At 8am we begin our day with a lightly guided meditation practice to develop greater awareness of the mind and to connect to your inner stillness. Then we flow with a gentle practice of yoga until 10am. All the practices are aligned to the time for year and as a practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese medicine we will connect to the time of year and the organs that need more nourishment and work to balance out the yin and yang elements in the body at this time. In the evening we have a 2 hour restorative workshop that is simply around resting and replenishing and softening and letting go. All the practices are optional.

During all the classes Maggie will encourage you to listen to your body and do what feels good for you. Encourage you not to push or force anything but to simply move with mindful awareness. We also have guided silent walks in the nearby woods and walking meditation in the garden at Creacon.
All levels welcome and injuries.
