Women’s Weekend Yoga Retreat

July 28, 29, 30 with Suzi Chin Silicz

This winter weekend will be dedicated to explore Iyengar yoga for women.

Our journey as women is mapped by our human experiences over a lifetime. Geeta Iyengar, the daughter of BKS Iyengar, and fondly referred to as Geetaji (her title for guru) wrote her revered book, Yoga, A Gem for Women in 1983. She was the first woman to detail how yoga asana holds an important role to the yogini as she moves through the different stages of her life and biology from puberty to menopause and beyond. These days her book is often used as a reference in classes for women’s ‘problems’ and whilst it is a fantastic guide, there is so much more that’s added into the mix that can be deeply personal to us.

So, why Women only? Everyday mixed classes aren’t the ideal place to go into depths about women’s physiology so it more than often gets left out. This work needs some dedicated space, exploration, time and guidance to really get a feel of physically, mentally and emotionally what this landscape is all about and how to nourish ourselves as a whole. What are we working with to bring depth of understanding and balance to our inner, and in turn outer worlds as women?

Yanada, our home for the weekend, is a 90 minute drive north of Sydney. On site there is a hot spa, fire pit, fully equipped yoga room, lounge area with a fireplace and a swimming pool for those who like a brisk dip, all nestled in native bushland.
