Weekend Yoga Retreat

Hello…

So I am delighted to invite you to another Isle of Wight Weekend Yoga retreat. This one runs in September on the weekend of the 21st ending on Sunday 23rd.

This weekend yoga retreat offers 10 hrs of yoga, including morning meditation & pranayama, flowing yang morning asana, and a deeper restorative asana with yoga nidra in the afternoon.

This Isle of Wight Yoga Retreat is beautiful and so easy to get to, either get the train and walk onto a ferry at Southampton, or drive onto the ferry from there or from Portsmouth. At the other side its a 20 min drive or taxi.

We have BARGAIN prices of £280 (for twin room sharing) or £350 (single room), or £260 for a bunk Bed room; or if you are a couple and want a double room, £250 each.

We are practising yoga in a new barn conversion with great under floor heating; we will eat amazing organic vegetarian food (mostly wheat and dairy free), along with lots of raw chocolates and great people to meet and chat with. Also free time for massage andbeack walks.

Massage and Reiki is available daily with Tam McGann – and if you havent’ ever had a treatment from her – she is AMAZING! As Tam is also a yoga teacher her treatments on retreats are first class and really hit the spot; very special indeed!

I still have 2 places left, so contact me soon if you have earned yourself a special yoga weekend!

Namaste,
From my heart & with love…

Helena
p.s. I just got my YA 500hrs – yippee x

Power of 20 minutes practice…

Did you know that you can totally CHANGE the way you feel with just 20 minutes of YOGA – even if it is JUST savasana (lying still).polvam.ru
NEVER underestimate a shorter practice or say, ‘I don’t have time’; any amount of yoga time is absolutely worth it.
I have 3 kids and a large dog and 20 minutes for me is total luxury – in fact 10 minutes is OK!
Go on, make 20 minutes yoga happen today and then as many days as you can.

What the Dalai Lama said about MAN!

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man”;

Because he sacrifises his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
He lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Learn from this and NEVER sacrifise your health for money

Always enjoy the present

Don’t die with your music still in you 🙂
