The morning session will be led by Ratnadevi and will include some sitting meditation, poetry and verbal enquiry, aiming for a balanced and enriching experience.

 

The afternoon session offers a rare CPD opportunity for mindfulness teachers and trainee teachers to re-visit some of the principles underlying the teaching of mindful movement. There will be small group practice opportunities with feed-back and discussion. CPD certificate available on request.

Ratnadevi's style of yoga is gentle and surprisingly effective. I come out the class a different being, calmer, taller, walking with a bounce in my step and noticing more the details of life. I feel the benefits of the class through the week, more aware of my posture, calmer, healthier."

Mindful Movement is an essential component of mindfulness practice, taking us out of our heads to a more fully embodied way of being, bringing a wider, wiser and more loving perspective to our lives. A weekly yoga class or weekend retreat are excellent, nurturing ways of keeping the spirit of mindfulness alive.

Coming to our senses through yoga and meditation

6-9 April 2018

Take a break from the speed and complexity of life and re-connect with the things that really matter: feeling centered and connected to ourselves, others, the environment and our purpose in life.  Yoga is both invigorating and relaxing and together with meditation helps us to slow down and see, hear, smell and touch the world with fresh appreciation. There will also be space to look at our lives with fresh eyes and explore what gives us true satisfaction. Weather permitting some practice will take place outside, in the peaceful and magical setting of the island – maybe doing walking meditation among the horses. Open to beginners and anyone who would like to deepen their existing mindfulness practice.

Cost for accommodation and food: £165 single room, £120 twin room each, £96 dorm. Course fee: £125
