Outside of yoga practices there is a wood burning floating sauna on the lake for you to enjoy or perhaps you’d love to indulge in a personal healing treatment suchas, Craniosacral therapy, Balaniese massage or Shamanic womb awakening. Try the sense deprivation tank for deep release, dive into a book from the library, explore well-signed walks, gather around a bonfire, as it will be around Samhain time.
Accomodation is clean and simple, cared for with love, bathroom and showers will be shared.

There will be two practices offered daily both of workshop quality:
A Morning Solar Radiance Practice to embody the energy of mother nature and sunlight into the body. These practices will be dynamic, at a playful growth edge, themed, journalling, fun and insightful. Expect a warm, balanced glow before breakfast.
A late afternoon/sunset Sublime Nectar Practice to capture the golden hours of magic within your body and senses. These practices will consist of: movement meditations, somatic release, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, moon wisdom & Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls guided deep rest.
All levels are most welcome, although, Alchemise Yoga Studio recommends complete beginners begin by practicing at the studio (or elsewhere) before the retreat. As a marker, the afternoon sessions will be suitable for beginners, the morning sessions will require some previous yoga embodiment. Some experience is preferable and recommended to gain the most out of this retreat offering.
A yoga retreat like this is a sacred investment and most certainly not an expense, you are investing in your physical and mental health, connecting to nature, cleansing your body, digitally detoxing, creating healthy new habits, recharging yourself, eating clean fresh food cooked for you, living with the elements, rising with the sun and replenishing with the moon, meeting new friends, learning more about who you are and letting go of who you are not, becoming wiser and more intuitive, learning from a teacher with 1000’s upon 1000’s hours yoga practice and trainings. You are investing in your future self.
