The Inspired Self Autumn Reset Retreat
Yoga, Mindfulness and Inner Inspiration Retreat.
14th - 18th October, 2023
Join This Very Special October Retreat, in Andalucia, Spain.
Workshops, Yoga, Breathwork, Nature - relax, reconnect, let go of what you need to and take away a more restored and deeply inspired you!
Life can be busy and leave little space for reconnecting to yourself. Often we end up holding a lot for others, but find that we become depleted and disconnected ourselves, often to the point of not even realising there's a problem.
No matter where you are at in your life, if you would like to reset and to reconnect to more of your Inspired Self then this is the retreat for you. In this small group retreat you will be supported to let go of what you need to and fill up in ways that support you. Under the warm andalucian skies you will have the chance to explore and develop a gentle yoga and breath practice, experience yoga nidra (a deep and powerful relaxation technique), experience transformational coaching, take walks, swim, enjoy movement, find quiet inspiration, let go of whatever you need to and take away new inspired skills for living. No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary to enjoy this retreat, only a willingness to explore and to play a little or a lot in the service of your inspired life.
5 day retreat - the olive groves, the mountains, the sky, the stars - and you.

It is recommended that you unplug from the rat race during your retreat but we do have wifi should you need it. We ask that you use it only in your room so as not to disturb others who wish to be tech-free.
