Join Nadia Raafat in the beautiful Hampshire countryside for a day’s retreat and yoga immersion.
A chance to withdraw from the urban intensity of London living…
To immerse yourself in nature less than 90 minutes from London…
To dedicate eight uninterrupted hours to deepen and broaden your yoga and mindfulness practice…
To weave together the physical element, the philosophical enquiry and the insight meditation into a rich and complete practice..
To experience deep connection with yourself, with others and with the great harmonious whole.
The retreat 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-enquiry 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 headless headstand, headstand and pincha mayurasana or forearm balance.
The four hour afternoon will be divided into two parts; Mindfulness Enquiry and Meditation practice followed by a Yin Yoga practice where we will continue our Mindfulness Self-Enquiry. 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 £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.
Venue: Yavington Farm, Lovington Lane, Avington, Winchester SO21 1DA

Blocks, belts and blankets will also be supplied.
