About the eventThe Thawing - Winter Retreat
‘The snowdrop and crocus - both little pioneers of spring, brave and hardy scouts that dare to taste the frost and bring hope once again to the dead lands’.
As the days grow longer and warmth slowly returns, that which has been frozen begins to thaw as feeling returns to the earth.
Late Winter requires that we pay close attention to our inner fire from growing too dim or wavering.
As a time to draw inwards to rest and restore, do you tend to power through winter? Or perhaps you delve deep into hibernation mode and start to crave connection?
This retreat invites you to keep your internal fire burning by gathering in the warm embrace of community.
Based in The Peak District National Park, our cottage is the perfect spot to get away from it all and reconnect to the rhythms of nature and yourself.
Over the weekend we will explore a therapeutic blend of nourishing practices such as somatic movement, meditation, self massage, journalling, slow mandala flow, embodied yin, kirtan & pranayama.
Melt your inner snow with both solar and lunar yoga practices to balance the cold and damp qualities of Kapha…
Build stamina in warming but grounding ways
Explore heating Asana & Pranayama practices to keep the lungs, chest and sinuses strong and clear during cold and flu season
Honor lunar energy with earth focused practices to help store energy for spring
