Winter Yoga Retreat
Come along to an in-depth dive into Alchemic Yoga in a rejuvenating and nourishing Mountain retreat space.
Winter is a time of going within, reflecting, slowing down, soothing and nourishing ourselves around a warm fire.
Slow mountain walks, easy stretches and relaxing in a hot spa!Alchemic yoga is seasonal yoga, thus working the organs, eating foods, and doing exercises & stretches that enhance our vitality and health in alignment with the season we are in.
It is the most comprehensive, sensible, smooth, easy and intuitive yoga. The classes are very well explained and open to raw beginners thru to experienced yoga teachers themselves. It is taught by John Burke - a true master in Healing, Healthy Anatomy & Physiology & World Wisdom and the founder of Alchemic Yoga.This Retreat is held at Temple of Vitality in Dunbible, situated half way between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast.
The relative flow of the retreat each day is:
-8am Gentle & well explained yoga
In Winter we do a different element of yoga each day. We start with Water as this is the element that is dominant in this season. The next day we do the life element Akasha or Wood, as Water generates Wood. The next day we do Fire, as Wood generates Fire. The next day Earth, as Fire generates Earth. Then Air as Earth generates Air. On the last day we complete the cycle by coming back to the Winter element Water, as Air generates Water.
