Winter Solstice Retreat (3-Day)

As the sun comes to a stop we stop too.
Solstice will take place at 16.21. With yoga, yoga nidra and pranayama we’ll relax and gather poise, as the year poises. We will take a turn on the land around sunset and feel nature resting with us.
This day retreat forms part of a two-night Solstice Retreat, 20 – 22 December, £260
Mixed ability yoga
In this retreat being ‘able’ is more about the willingness to go within than trained physical strength or flexibility; but you will also develop all these aspects.

Yogic diet
A yogic diet uplifts and gives energy. We eat fresh, wholesome, seasonal, delicious vegan food made with mainly local organic veg and organic ingredients.

Yoga and nature connection
On the 2-night retreat, we’ll take time with gentle walks or optional work tidying outside in the garden. There will be the opportunity to either remember or celebrate someone/thing or mark an intention by planting a tree in Viveka Gardens’ new woodland.

Style: Sivananda Yoga
Ability level: Beginner
Cost: 260.00 GBP (Pound Sterling)
