The Healing Reawakening - UK Yoga Retreat Series 1 ** FULLY BOOKED
Time & Location
About The Event
We are incredibly proud and deeply humbled to introduce Ananda UK Retreats. Inspired by the healing modalities of traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and yogic science, we provide a unique and comprehensive path to healing. Our retreats utilize ancient wisdom and contemporary insights to balance the energies of Qi and remove any obstructions to energy. We choreograph each retreat to the current season and themed to support the 5 natural elements. Through yoga, breathwork and deeply healing food we create a rich, crystal clear flow of energy in the body.
Teachers of Ananda Yoga Retreats, Madeline Diaz Meiners, Adrienne Le Coure and Andrea Everingham will collaborate with the Ananda chef and founder of The Mindful Kitchen, Bex Shinder to combine their different areas of expertise based around the Five Elements and Traditional Chinese Medicine implemented into the practice of yoga and vegan cuisine.Our weekend retreat programme has been designed to ensure a next level experience that will not only leave you feeling healed and nourished, physically, mentally and emotionally, but will open your eyes to the endless possibilities of improving overall health and wellbeing following the principles of TCM.
Our January retreat set by the tranquil waters of Lake Coniston in Cumbria will focus on the element of water, which as a season, corresponds with winter, a period of rest and restoration. The element of water, associated with the organs of the kidneys and the bladder, symbolizes both life and death and signifies the preparation of new beginnings… Without this “dead of winter” there would be no life to spring.
Each yoga practice is artfully designed to create fluidity in the body and breath. Through movement and invigorating breathing practices, we will release stagnant energies in the body, remove obstructions to energy flow and allow for equilibrium and harmony. Each practice blends the ancient wisdoms of TCM and Yogic science, while moving with the natural rhythms of the planet. Embedded in each of our sessions are mindfulness techniques, stress reduction tools and profound relaxation tactics. All of our practices are suitable for every level and uniquely tailored to the students present.
Each nourishing meal will be thoughtfully prepared to balance the element of water, aiding and aligning perfectly with the internal healing process throughout your retreat. You will gain understanding of how the foods we eat can bring equilibrium to states of water excess or deficiency from private onsite food nutritionist chef Bex Shinder.
"Collected together, the ethers of the universe constitute unity; divided, they constitute Yin and Yang; quartered, they constitute the four seasons; ( still further ) sundered, they constitute the five elements. These elements represent movement.”
