Burns Lodge, 89 Church Road , Mosgiel, Dunedin.
It will be a mixture of Mindulness, Yoga, Movement and Relaxation. Some parts of it will be in silence and others will include discussions. We will be using the tools of classical yoga to gain access to the deeper aspects of the mind, since it is from this place that we can connect with the light in our hearts and move from suffering towards joy.
We will use simple postures and movements combined with the breath during sessions. No body is too old/ stiff/ unfit. We will also use sound and experience the deep healing effect sacred sounds can have when placed in a Yoga practice.
We really want you to trust your intuition of what you need, so you are welcome to join in whatever you want to and leave the rest . Alternatively you can sit drinking tea, go for a walk or have a rest.
The price includes accomodation, all meals and tuition.
