Urban Yoga and Meditation retreats this Christmas.
Put down your punch and pudding and evolve into a happy human being.
Christmas time provides us with the perfect opportunity to reflect upon life, about where we are, how we feel and how we can evolve. Whether this year has been blissfully happy for you or littered with troubled moments, true peace and contentment is our own responsibility and why not be a more content, calm and kind person for the benefit of yourself, your family, children, friends and colleagues.
With this in mind and the knowledge that this goal can not be achieved without sheer determination and perhaps a little sweat, blood and tears (doesn’t it make perfect sense that the best thing in life should be hard to achieve) why not start by booking yourself onto an Urban Yoga or Meditation retreat for a relaxing way to ease into the New Year with a happy heart.
Here are a selection of some of the best offerings in the city…
1. Saturday 27th December. Meditation and Mindful Living with Ajahn Amaro at Triyoga Soho 10am/16.30pm. Minimum donation £40.
If you’ve been thinking about learning to meditate but haven’t really got a clue where to begin then this one day course with a truly authentic spiritual leader, Ajahn Amaro would be a great place to start. Throughout the day you will look at a number of techniques used to quiet the mind, learn methods for stress free decision making, how to decrease anxiety and bring mindfulness into your home and work life. You really could pour those pills down the loo and save thousands on your shrink bill.
2. Sunday 28th December. A Jivamukti Day Retreat with Emma Henry, practises for happiness, contentment and clarity at the Life Centre in Islington. 10.00am/16.00pm. £70.
Jivamukti is a funky and energetic style of yoga with deep spiritual roots accessible to all. During this one day workshop you will look at ways to decrease suffering in your life and live in a more compassionate and content way while working through an uplifting yoga sequence that is sure to provide a welcomed delight to any over indulged tummies.
3. Sunday 28th December through to Wednesday 31st. 4 day Urban Yoga Retreat with Anna Ashby, Joel Miles and special guests at Triyoga in Camden, 09.00am/17.30pm daily. £280, includes lunch every day.
Imagine stepping into the New Year healthy, hangoverless and stress free, how wonderful that would be. If you have some free time on your hands this festive season then why not indulge in this blissful Urban Yoga retreat in the heart of Camden Town. Each day begins with chanting followed by an active asana practice ending in peaceful meditation. The afternoons include journaling, group discussions, restorative yoga, pranayama and more meditation. Heavenly time to allow for true transformation to take place.
And of course, If you do fancy a change of scenery you are always welcome here in the north of Spain on one of the Bilbao Yoga Retreats where I will care for you unconditionally.
Merry Christmas everyone xx
