Yoga and Journaling Day Retreat – March 7th Online

yoga day retreat

This yoga and journaling day retreat will introduce you to the powerful practice of cycle awareness, of being in your cycle and harnessing the potential wisdom that can be gained from a deep knowledge and understanding of it. Yoga, Journaling, rest and relaxation.

Menstrual cycle awareness is a game changer in terms of being able to harness the energy changes through the cycle and plan your life more effectively. This workshop will deepen this wisdom with a special focus on how to navigate transitions, for example through a menstrual cycle, or through transitioning from one life cycle to the next.

Open to women of all ages and stages of their life cycle, this day retreat will be from the comfort of your own space, via zoom. There will be plenty of breaks to balance screen time and integrate. 1pm to 9pm with breaks for tea and dinner.

You will need space to do yoga, not necessarily a mat, but blankets and pillows. Journaling materials, pens, note books, paints etc.

What would you tell others about the retreat?
“It was wonderful! Every woman should do it!”

“I found it inspirational, and a kickstart for me to reflect on different aspects of my womanness I hadn’t previously considered. It was refreshing and empowering!”

“Great introduction to the ‘being in your cycle’ for people that are new to this subject. Well worth doing it to start your journey in this area of exploration.”

“Thank you Sally and Kelly, that was a lovely session and day. This will carry me through January and the rest of February. I really, REALLY enjoyed that.”

Yoga Birth Preparation – Sunday March 13th 10-noon

At this workshop, we talk about what is happening to your body and baby in 1st and 2nd stage labour, yoga postures and movements to help facilitate labour as well as practice techniques to help you relax, and manage discomfort. We will go over ways that your birth partner can support you throughout the labour and we also cover labour positions and we talk about a “tool box”.

All the ‘practising the out breath’ at the previous week’s pregnancy yoga came in very, very useful. By the time I got to hospital I was 9cm dilated and only used gas and air for the pushing stage, which lasted just less than an hour. So big thanks for the breathing techniques!’

It is kind of like a “birth simulation” although no two births will ever be the same!  You wouldn’t go to an important presentation, or game without “practicing” first, so that is the idea here.

These workshops can also done on request privately or for small groups, please get in touch for more information.
