What happens in the retreat?
The retreat combines mind-body awareness approaches from the Alexander Technique and from mindfulness practice. During the retreat you will learn ways to use the breath and body to help calm and settle you. You’ll experience guided visualisations, movement with awareness and muscle tension release techniques while lying down and while sitting.
There is an emphasis on bringing awareness into our experience with a sense of self-care and patience. There will be opportunities for discussion in small groups or pairs. Groups are friendly and supportive. This retreat is practical and experiential. There is no spiritual or religious content.
Who is the retreat suitable for?
This retreat is suitable for adults of all ages. There will be opportunities to lie down and also to explore gentle, easy movement with awareness. All activities can be adapted if they do not suit your body.
