One day Yoga Retreat
Yoga Retreat Series starts in 2023
Join Melanie de Villiers for a nourishing and empowering one-day Yoga retreat. From her over 20 years of Yoga experience, she will share practical techniques and take-away tools on how to bring more authentic alignment into your life. Based on ancient Samkhya cosmology, which is the root philosophy of Yoga and Ayurveda, you will learn how to revitalize and harmonize your body, mind and breath. Through various practices that tune into the fundamental principles of nature, you will be guided on how to balance the elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether – which are the building blocks of your biological being, your thoughts and the entire world around you. Gently and gradually you will feel the freedom that comes from making peace with impermanence and possibly even touch the infinite essence that is beyond your continuously changing physical form. Ultimately by understanding your own dance with nature and cultivating the ability to step back and view yourself objectively, you will find great relief from the every-day stress (and trauma) that many of us are burdened with in our fast-paced modern lifestyle. On this inspirational one-day Yoga retreat you are invited to slow down and appreciate the present moment, exactly as it is and exactly as you are right now.
