Design your spine yoga retreat weekend

Ffos-Y-ffin, Lampeter, SA48 United Kingdom

A yoga retreat weekend at our home retreat center Ascension in The Feilds, Lampeter SA488LL.

This weekend is an inspiring look at our ability to design our own spine through physiological look at the spine as well as yoga practices that will contribute to un folding, softening and strengthening.

Joining us is Rhea Foy our onsite Clinical Physiotherapist for the weekend who will be available for treatments, assesments and will be giving a mini lecture on the spine.

All movement originates from within the spine.  If it moves with ease and fluidity, the whole body feels free.  Working with great sensitivity, gradually unfolding  the structures of the body – particularly the spine – we will discover how to release our powerful natural flexibility.  The result is effortless movement not simply within the asanas, but also in our daily lives. This is an opportunity for everyone to discover or rediscover their spines, to release blockages and lengthen the body.

    •    Discover a fresh approach to yoga that will radically transform your practice

    •    Release unnecessary effort and tension, and help restore the body’s natural health, vitality and energy

    •    Deepen your understanding of anatomy and structural relationships, the mechanics of movement and breath

    •    Develop gradual, sustained changes in breathing, posture, strength and mobility, building a strong connection between the mind and body.

The retreat will include, posture practice, pranayama, relaxation and clarifying discussion, exploration and demonstration. Suitable for all levels of practitioner from those newly exploring yoga to advanced practitioners and teachers. Teacher that attend will recieve a CPD certificate of attendance to go towards their yearly training requirements.

‘If yoga posture practice is to release us from the imprints of life held within our structure and musculature, it needs to be undertaken with a keen sense of listening to the whispers of sensation within the spine’
