Starts this Friday!
Yes, you read that right – get yourself a taster of what it’s like to go on a yoga retreat whilst staying in the comfort of your very own home – for free.
Starting on the morning of Friday 9 August 2019, you’re all invited to attend Yoga with Adriene’s very own yoga retreat lasting right through to bedtime on Sunday 11 August 2019. All you need is access to the internet and You Tube and to follow the instructions on the link below:
As you may have noticed, I’m a massive YWA fan so I’m always sharing links to her material most of which is completely free and crafted with the “at home” practitioner very much in mind.
After a crazy-July of YWA power yoga, I’m really looking forward to this month’s theme of “Reunite”, especially so having learnt that there will be a 3-day yoga retreat at home special to shake up the usual daily practice.
For full details, I recommend clicking the link but essentially each day there is:
- a morning session of yoga;
- followed by a short meditation;
- a journal prompt session;
- an evening yoga session; and
- a nature activity.
I’m sure there are those of you thinking that there’s no way you could fit all of those activities into the whole weekend never mind every day for 3 days straight! Until I started a daily yoga practice, I would have had the same reaction in fairness. But, it’s surprising how much I can actually fit into my day when I make it a non-negotiable part of my day.
It’s a fun little taster session that you can fit around your existing commitments – I’m actually in work all day Friday so I’ll have to get up a little earlier to fit it all in and may end up eating a little later than usual in the evening, but planning it in advance definitely makes it easier to manage. Over the weekend, the youngest will no doubt be joining in and dropping out as it suits her and probably saying “mum” every 5 minutes through the meditations but I guess that’s good practice for taking my yoga “off the mat” and practising a calm and peaceful mind all day, every day – not just when it’s convenient to do so!
Why not challenge yourself to something different this weekend? Feel free to share this article with anyone you think might be interested and if you take part, let me know how you get on in the comments.
See you there!
