Join Nadia Raafat at Yavington Studio in Hampshire For a Day’s Retreat and Yoga Immersion this May 2020.

  • A chance to withdraw from the urban intensity of London living…
  • To immerse yourself in beautiful nature less than 90 minutes from London…
  • To dedicate eight uninterrupted hours to deepen and broaden your yoga and meditation practice…
  • To discover Heart Yoga and learn how to turn your practice into a prayer.
  • To experience deep connection with yourself, with others and with the great harmonious whole.

This May, Nadia is returning to the beautiful Yavington Studio deep in the Hampshire Countryside for a one-day Spring retreat.

There will be two three hour sessions. The morning session will begin with an extended asana and pranayama practice during which time we will explore the inner life of the body; the architecture of asana and the importance of physical self-inquiry during practice.

As part of the architecture of asana element, we will devote one hour to inversions with the aim of enabling each participant to progress in their understanding of the form, the modifications and the preparations for headstand, and pincha mayurasana or forearm balance.

The afternoon will be divided into two parts; A philosophical Introduction to Heart Yoga – how it represents the evolution of Yoga and ways to bring more Heart to your practice.  This will be followed by a 1 hour Yin Yoga and Pranayama practice. The retreat will conclude with a deep Yoga Nidra relaxation session, leaving you rested and refreshed ready for the journey home.

The cost for the full day is £95 (EARLY BIRD PRICE £85) – this will exclude lunch.  You are invited to bring a packed lunch or buy lunch at the local pub where we will have tables reserved.  Tea and biscuits will be available throughout the day.

Yavington Studio is near Alresford, 15 minutes from the centre of Winchester and an hour and a half from London Waterloo.

Venue: Yavington Farm, Lovington Lane, Avington, Winchester SO21 1DA

Bring: a yoga mat and a blanket. 

Blocks, belts and blankets will also be supplied.
