REST, RELAX AND RENEW, with YOGA, RESTORATIVE YOGA & MEDITATION PRACTICES
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. To down our 21st century tools of technology, phones, and computers that keep us switched day and night. To try and create space and rest in the midst of our busy lifestyles, whether that is looking after family and friends, work commitments, or social activities. And with the added stress of Covid-19, relaxation can feel very far away from us.
This week offers an opportunity to cultivate self-care and compassion, to leave aside the busyness of life and instead to foster rest, relax and renew, right here, right now, to help calm our nervous system. Using the tools of mindfulness meditation, practicing gentle Hatha yoga in the mornings, combined with Restorative yoga in the afternoons, these age old techniques can help support us unhook from a busy and sometimes anxious mind, and instead, rest in this breath, in this body, in this moment. With kind caring attention, we invite a letting go, a releasing, 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 see how you are doing. 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.
