Nourishing Yin Yoga and Gong Bath Retreat

I am delighted to be collaborating with a Alison Russel a local Gong Bath practitioner.  We have designed a series of  delicious retreats of pure rest and relaxation, combining the potency of yin yoga and gong bath practices, to melt away tension, worries and concerns, leaving you feeling deeply nurtured and refreshed.

We begin with opening the space and settle into the morning exploring a theme, flower essences with meditation, essential oils, cranial touch, cards or chanting for example, to encourage a journey into the silence, so that we can become clearer of who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us.

This leads into a 90 minute yin yoga practice, in which we sink into floor based asanas. Within this sinking there is an encouragement of softness, an emphasis of releasing fascia and allowing muscles to relax and lengthen, a greater range of movement of joints and an activation of the relaxation response.

We take a short break for water/tea, a light snack and a barefoot walk around the garden and /or movement and then dive into a 60-minute Gong Bath. 

With you lying comfortably on the yoga mat, fully supported with bolsters and cushions, the gong bath will lead you into a deep meditation that invites you to relax, clear and release old patterns, stimulate your immune system, refresh your whole being and discover a state of bliss

This wonderful mini retreat takes places in Wallingford Oxfordshire – in a beautiful peaceful studio surrounded by fields and views over to the river Thames.

Cost is £45, payable by bank transfer to confirm your place.

No previous experience of yin yoga or a gong bath is needed.

All equipment is provided, you just need to bring a cushion and blanket, perhaps some water and lunch to share at the end of the session. If you have specific dietary requirements, bringing something you know you can eat.
