with Suzi Chin Silicz
March 31 – April 2, 2023
This will be the third retreat we’ll be looking forward to at the wonderful Jack’s Corner Retreat in Kangaroo Valley.
This is an opportunity for a weekend away where we get to stretch our bodies and brains, be in nature, get fed well, hang out with other yogis, sleep and all we need to do is turn up. Sounds ideal!
You will discover what it’s like to set aside your usual daily routine and be in another stream of consciousness, which is accessed through yoga asana, pranayama and meditation. This is memorable, not only in your heart but in your body, and lasts a lifetime. Life affirming, life changing, it will definitely touch deep into your being. Even if you’re not aware of it at the time. It’s in the refection of these times, we can start to see clearly, do the work and feel free in ourselves.
On retreats we get time, space and conducive surroundings to hold us as we launch into this other way of being.
We hope you’ll join us!
We start on Friday afternoon for an ‘arrival’ asana class, then get together after for dinner. Saturday & Sunday start with an early morning sitting meditation then a two hour asana class.
The yoga classes are held in a purpose built ‘Iyengar’ yoga studio complete with wall ropes, bolsters and blocks. You’ll need to bring your own mat and towel, and any other specific props you may be using for practice. The room is airy and has heating for the cooler mornings.
In the afternoon on Saturday, there is another asana class. Sunday AM is the same as Saturday except we start one hour later, have brunch and complete with a final wrap class.
The retreat welcomes everyone with some yoga experience, and a desire to work and explore. Modifications are made for any injuries and or physical limitations.
