Quiet Day Retreat

A Ripple Effect Yoga Quiet Day Retreat5382_641721842523243_1137793794_n

A quiet gentle day to physically retreat … to take a step back, to withdraw to a place of
seclusion, shelter or privacy.

A holiday and a retreat are two different things.  Holidays are temporary distractions from our responsibilities and routines, and any sense of peace and quiet we may achieve can be quickly eroded when we get back.

A quiet day yoga retreat gives you time to step out of your everyday life and re-focus on the things that matter most.

Come & rediscover your centre, balance your body and mind and experience a deep inner calm and focus. This is possible because we are not simply relaxing (forgetting) but exploring and practicing the methods needed to lead healthy, balanced lives.
During retreat we take stock of what we have been doing and notice which of our resources are most depleted. Once we become centred again we are able to mindfully replenish ourselves.

What happens on a quiet day?
Quiet days are usually from around 10:30 am to 3:30 pm
There will be a programme and during the day there will be time for you to reflect on your own, in a way that feels helpful to you, we will be utilising restorative well woman yoga,
guided meditation & deep relaxation, spending time with other like minded women)

There will be lovely refreshment breaks including a nutritious shared lunch of soup, home baked bread, fresh fruit and baked treat.

At the end of the day there will be the opportunity to share your experiences with the group (if you choose too).
