The Vitality Retreat 2018
Revitalise Your Natural Essence
This 3-day retreat invites you to unwind in the serene settings of Lisvanagh country estate in Carlow (just over an hours drive from Dublin)
Our intention is to revitalise the body to its natural capacity for healing, learn from its wisdom, align with our true nature and develop greater self-awareness.
Opening the body we open the mind. Through the body, we will experience space, stillness, e-motion, sensation, vibration and bliss.
This 3-day programme includes:
- Healing Yoga: Asana, Pranayama (breath-work), Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) & Meditation
- Somatic Movement
- Tension & Trauma Release
- Soul-Dance (no dance experience needed)
- Dynamic Meditation
- Sound & Voice work
- Authentic Connection
- Visioning, Intention & Manifestation practices
You will receive a full timetable of events and scheduled free time on the morning of your arrival but here is a taster of what’s to come!
You will arrive Friday from 4:30 pm to settle into your private room and enjoy the gardens before a light supper at 6 pm.
Our programme will begin from 7:30 pm with Healing Yoga to help us arrive and anchor.
On Saturday we will begin at 8:30 am with Pranayama and Somatic Movement followed by a silent breakfast and a mindful woodland walk.
Returning to the studio we will explore deep tension release and authentic movement before a nourishing lunch.
After lunch you can experience a multitude of delights as you unwind, curling up on the sofa with a good book by a big log fire in the oak-panelled library, or taking a snooze in the blissful quiet of your bedroom, soaking in a luxurious bath with no time pressure, or sipping tea as you take in expansive views of the pleasure grounds.
The afternoon workshop will revitalise the body and open the mind with sensory practices and dynamic meditation followed by a healing relaxation to rest and integrate the day’s learning.
After dinner, there will be guided Yoga Nidra for all who would like to attend.
Sunday awakens the True You with sound and voice exercises to purify and uplift the energetic and physical body before a hearty breakfast.
Our final session will focus on enhancing personal awareness through Authentic Connection exercises followed by Creative Visioning, Intention & Manifestation practices.
We will enjoy afternoon tea together at 1 pm before departing.
