The POWER OF YIN – 8 day Retreat


8 days of Yoga and Healing in a Setting of Inspirational Beauty
29 October – 5 November 2017

This intensive retreat touches all levels helping us anchor into our individual nature as a unique expression of ONE universal power. In Chinese medicine that ONE power is viewed as the two complementary energies of Yin and Yang. Yin power is like the Earth; substantial, grounded and contracted. It is a receptive, magnetic feminine energy relative to Yang which is masculine, active, stimulating, and outgoing.

Opening to Yin power gives us access to our deep, hidden reservoirs of energy. Letting down and letting in offers us the direct experience of original source energy. On this retreat we awaken to Yin as the feminine, gathering, harmonising, cohesive power of life itself. Using restorative Yoga, meridian based breath and movement practices we strengthen the nurturing, grounding Mother energy which activates the blood and fluid production, regulation and circulation.

Theories of Tibetan Yoga and Chinese medicine are explored as foundation for the practices. Free time during the day is built in for contemplation, rest, time in nature and individual healing sessions. Evening talking circles support you to apply the teachings to your own life and help integrate your insights
