Spring Renewal

A restorative and inspiring day retreat, celebrating our inner spring awakening. Expanding outwards from winter, we release our inner tensions, celebrate and radiate our vital energy, and focus on our unique journey pathway.

All are welcome. Our day will start with flowing, meditative yoga for all ages, abilities, and needs. After a break, where fruit, teas, and nibbles are provided, we shall enjoy a supported yoga practice, whereby we can go deeper into our yoga through gentle but effective Unity Partner Yoga practice. This session is accompanied by soothing Acupressure Massage instruction, which will include various techniques for deep relaxation and Reiki energy work for deep healing.

We will partner up on the day (or feel free to partner with a friend if you join the workshop together) After a relaxing lunch (please bring your own), we shall enjoy dropping deeper inwards to meditation and awareness, through conscious dance. Open Floor offers us a nourishing resource to connect with all dimensions of being (physical, emotional, mind, and soul), and to explore our energy & expression through natural movement. A sacred, healing journey, with no previous experience necessary.

The day will end with a deep Yoga Nidra relaxation, accompanied by crystal singing bowls. A closing meditation will ensure that we complete our day feeling grounded and more still and centered.

The serene ambiance of the Barcome Village Hall, coupled with the enriching activities, is guaranteed to help you relax and unwind. Join us on this journey of self-discovery and embrace the Spring energies with open arms. Register now to secure your spot for this event.

What to expect from the day

The retreat is led, as in previous years, by Sevanti, the founder of Unity. You can read more about Sevanti here.

Unity Yoga is about ‘being with oneself’. It is a deep and meditative flow and inquiry into organic, natural movement.

Through sensitive authenticity, we can explore a diverse spectrum of asanas with various dynamics. Meditation, breathing, letting go, and humility; are the entry points to a long-term nourishing and inspiring practice. The central focus is on the relationship with the breath and the awareness of our fundamental state of being.

The body-mind is respected as a whole system, honouring the felt sense of emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. With courage, surrender, and lightness we tune in to our energetic intelligence; releasing tensions held in the body and mind.

Open Floor Dance

Mindful movement is a deeply restorative, invigorating, and empowering practice. There are no set steps to learn or expectations: the movement journey is inspired by tuning into our inner resources such as grounding, centering, activating and settling, and spacious awareness, to name just a few.

Unity Partner Yoga™/Supported Yoga

Unity Partner Yoga™ (also known as Supported Yoga) is a deep, restorative, playful, and sacred practice of yoga, and is a fun way of practicing yoga with a friend or partner. It complements our usual self-practice, enhancing and deepening it on a physical and spiritual level. It is also a great way of working with a group of people and feeling the underlying message of yoga – true connection and union. Unity Partner Yoga can awaken an inner oasis of deep peace and meditation, where we relate with another and with ourselves, through truth, trust, and tenderness, and there is also plenty of opportunity to result in entangled giggles too!
