Ashtaga Yoga & Yin Yoga
You can find a variety of yoga disciples on the retreat calendar but the main yoga practice is Ashtanga Yoga & Yin Yoga with wonderful meditation practices which really do bring you into the moment in a very rooted bodily way. When Peter talks you through his method of meditation he helps you land from being lost in your head to a complete body experience were you are able to observe thought. After the meditation practice we got down, to do some posture work and WOW you can really hear and feel the years of experience he has as he gently assists you to move in and out of postures using the breath.
The evening Yin Yoga Classes are just what I needed to let go of so much tension and with the lovely and incredibly knowledgeable Sue sharing her wisdom during the whole class. Sue, like Peter is completely grounded in yoga, Chinese medicine, homeopathy, in fact she is just like a Guru.
