REST, RELAX AND RENEW, with Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Meditation Practices

With Gail Aylward

August 7 – 12, 2023

Language: English

Rest is an important part of ones mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being. Yet many of us find it difficult to do just that… to truly rest and down our 21st century tools of technology, phones, and computers that keep us switched on day and night. Or find space and relaxation in the midst of our busy lives of work, family and friends commitments. And with the added stress of Covid, the unstable political, economic and ecological crisis, relaxation can feel very far away.

How can we be with all the uncertainty, yet still be with ourselves?

This week offers an opportunity to practice and cultivate self-care and compassion, to leave aside the busyness of life and instead begin to slow down. Using the tools of silent mindfulness meditation throughout the day, we will practice gentle hatha yoga in the mornings, and soft restorative yoga postures in the afternoons to help calm and settle our nervous system. These age old techniques can support and guide us to unhook from a busy and sometimes anxious mind, and instead come back and rest in this breath, in this body, in this moment. With kind caring attention, we invite a releasing, a letting go, whilst cultivating a relaxation and non-doing.

Never more so than now have we needed these practices

The days will unfold in silence as we meditate and practice together. There will be the opportunity to meet with Gail in small groups throughout the week, to check in and explore what is arising for you. There will also be unstructured time to go for walks, bathe in the river, enjoy the delicious home cooked organic meals, or just enjoy simply being, whilst relaxing and being supported by the beautiful grounds of Le Moulin.

“Don’t try to make the present moment peaceful, make peace with the present moment “
