Autumnal Yoga Retreat
Autumnal Yoga Retreat
Join us for this very special weekend yoga retreat. We will practice 4 yoga sessions spaced nicely throughout the weekend. The sessions will include active hatha – vinyasa flow, meditative yoga, pranayama (breathing pratices) restorative yoga and deep relaxation.
Liz will bring you on a journey deep into your inner being where you will find peace and stillness and the ability to connect to your yoga practice in a whole new way. Liz’s yoga practice works to balance, uplift, focus, detox, de-stress and relax the body and mind and at the same time restoring energy levels and vitality.
Liz’s yoga is very powerful in stilling the mind and clearing energy, bringing you deeper into an inner awareness where you’ll find calm and harmony and learn how to carry this state of mind beyond the yoga mat and into your day-to-day life.

The yoga practised on this retreat will be Vinyasa, Hatha yoga.
Vinyasa (Vinyasa Flow or Flow Yoga) is a general term that is used to describe many different types of classes. Vinyasa is the Sanskrit word for “flow,” and is known for fluid movements that build up intensity. Vinyasa flows smoothly from pose to pose, creating a smooth rhythm. The intensity of the class is similar to that of Ashtanga, except there is a level of creativity in Vinyasa classes, as no two flows are ever the same. Vinyasa tends to be a more vigorous style of yoga, with focus on breath synchronized movement, moving from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes called Vinyasa Flow or just Flow, because of the smooth way that the poses connect together in a continuous fashion. Vinyasa yoga is appealing to those looking to develop a stronger mind-body connection and grow in strength and flexibility through fluid and creative movement.
