Urban Retreat – Yoga & Cacao at Lughnasa- Sunday July 31st- 3.30pm-6.30pm


Out of stock


Lughnasa was traditionally a festival of joy, fun and exuberance a time to  acknowledge and celebrate the harvest,  to stop, take stock, and to reflect.

The overall intention and theme of this practice will be to pause and take time out to connect what is good even when things are tough.  To connect with and acknowledge all the ways that we are and can be truly supported and sustained.  To celebrate our own beings and the life force within and around us in nature.  And most importantly to rest and cultivate gratitude for  the fruits of our labor in all ways, to pause, down tools and cease all striving and just BE.

On this afternoon we will blend together some nourishing practices to really bring us into our bodies, connect with our hearts, regulate our nervous systems and get ready to align with the essence of the harvest season.

These practices include
Yoga- Breath work, movement, and deeply restorative yoga
Meditation- Meditation to arrive and deeply restful Yoga Nidra.
Cacao Ceremony-A centuries old ritual. The cacao plant is is used as a heart healing and opening medicine. It assists in energetic healing and bringing clarity. People report feeling softer, open and relaxed, and more loving. We will enjoy organic, rich, delicious ceremonial cacao. Hot chocolate on a whole other level! It marries beautifully with our other practices of yoga and meditation.

Bring your favourite mug for the cacao, a blanket, eye pillow, cosy socks and anything you need for comfort.

*If you are on SSRI ‘S, Maoi’s or have a serious heart condition, please contact me in advance and I will advise some modifications around the cacao.
