Return to Stillness: Yoga Retreat with Annie McGhee Fri, 28 April, 18:30 – Sun, 30 April, 16:30 Please note this is a second Retreat opened due to popular demand. Stillness of the mind can only come through stillness of the body' Yin yoga is a perfect counterbalance to our busy lives.

It allows us to drop into 'being ', rather than 'doing' by holding poses longer and passively. (Note starts Fri night, but daily weekend classes). Yin practice is deeply nourishing and has a myriad of benefits, for both the body and the mind. In these asanas (poses) we move beyond the yang of soft and elastic muscles into the Yin of connective tissues (ligaments and fascia).

By keeping the muscles soft, we release deeper layers of connective tissue, increasing mobility in the body, especially in the joints and hips, which can help with our seated meditations. On a subtler level, the Yin sequences improve the flow of prana (chi/life-force) through the energy channels (nadis/meridians) into the internal organs and tissues around the joints, where energy may have become stagnant.

Through the practice of Yin yoga, we can successfully combine both asanas and meditation into a deeply transformative practice. All equipment is provided, but please bring your own yoga mat. Friday 28 April 6.30 pm– Saturday 29 April 4.30 pm, at the Wellbeing Centre at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $75 10% discount for concession card holders All bookings can be made on our website or through reception.
