Springtime offers unique opportunities for retreatants and the weekend supports the sense of rejuvenatio and renewal that the season traditionally encourages. Our time together will be relaxed and quiet, the Yoga is accessible to all and you will be encouraged to explore the practice in the context of your own needs and priorites.
The idea of ‘retreat’, has been universal in the healing traditions. For us, to ‘retreat’ means to positively withdraw from our regular living situation so that we can take time and space for ourselves. This helps us to review our way of being and consider any changes we think necessary and to physically and mentally nourish ourselves so that we can better engage with life on our return.
We can attend a regular class with the same intention to withdraw and reflect. However, when we choose to take a day or a weekend, the process becomes more powerful.
There is an innate need for balance in the human being. The pull outward towards doing and relationship is firmly rooted in us as social beings in an interdependent society. In the global village we need never trouble ourselves with aloneness, boredom or reflection if we don’t want to.
Less obvious is the compensatory need to turn inwards, to quieten and to just be. Every being needs a level of this for balance. Dissipated energies require renewal, work requires rest and whilst it’s wonderful to fully express ourselves it’s equally good to become receptive and to listen.
This is where yoga and our sense of retreat can help us. Our practise reminds us that there is a powerful quality in the quiet arts of sitting, watching and being, in doing things because we can, for no other purpose.
In all our Yoga retreats in Cornwall we utilise place as well as time. We choose locations that accentuate the sense of retreat and allow you opportunity for walking and resting in nature, places where we can notice the little things that we often miss when we’re rushing around being useful!
