Release Relax Renew – Neurogenic Yoga Retreat

15/06/2018, 5:00 pm > 17/06/2018, 5:00 pm

These retreats offer body and soul a metaphorical hug! Accessible to all levels Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.This practice combines yoga asana and pranayama with reactivation of the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals, is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and trauma, in order to restore the body to wholeness. Guided meditations, Candlelit Restorative Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga Nidra blend beautifully with this deeply nourishing practice.

You can dip your toe into the retreat, enjoying as much as feels right for you or you may choose to simply dive in. You are free to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful haven through walks over the stunning countryside on your own or with fellow wanderers. Or you might choose to meet yourself on a hill and be still.
