About The Event

Meditation

No matter what your age, meditation is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Research at the Medical

College of Georgia found that meditation lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Additional studies have demonstrated meditation can reduce chronic pain, decrease levels of stress and pain in

cancer patients, and reduce symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia.

Other studies have indicated meditation may reduce the levels of cortisol, a hormone that in high levels can weaken the immune system and slow down healing. Results from a small study conducted in 1998 with patients suffering from psoriasis lesions indicated meditation can speed up the body’s natural healing process. Some studies have even suggested meditation can help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Carole is a qualified Meditation Teacher. Her teaching methodology is to ‘keep it simple’ starting at the basics and then progressing at an achievable pace.

What is Hatha Yoga?

'Ha' is Sanskrit for sun and 'tha' is for moon, Hatha yoga is therefore a union of opposites. In our Hatha yoga classes we will hold and explore certain yoga poses and their therapeutic benefits.  Often completing one yoga pose and then its counter pose. Hatha yoga is designed to help us bring pairs of opposites together in our hearts, minds, and bodies for the purpose of discovering something deeper about ourselves.

Benefits for the Body

  • Improved flexibility, balance and strength
  • Improved core strength and cardiovascular endurance
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Improved immune functioning and digestion
  • Calms the nervous system
  • Weight Management

Benefits for the Mind

  • Stress relief
  • Improved concentration, determination and mental focus
  • Emotional stability
  • Transforms old habits into inspiring ways of being present

Benefits for your Soul

  • Emotionally uplifting and life affirming
  • Greater self-awareness and well-being
  • Connection to spirit and others

From my Yoga teaching experience – the less you do the more powerful and transformative your practice will be.

Classes also include pranayama (breathwork) to encourage an even deeper state of awareness.

Our Food for your Soul meals on this retreat are sattvic - meaning it brings peace and enhances the wellbeing of the body, mind and spirit. Your meals will be colourful, beautiful in flavour with aesthetic appeal and plentiful. We believe food should be sustainable, pure and real - supporting and nourishing your body and mind to cleanse and heal.

We will make every effort to accommodate food allergies (i.e. gluten, vegetarian etc), however we will do the best we can to cater for your needs.

For safety reasons we are unable to accept guests who have a fatal allergy to any foods. We are not equipped to serve separate meals and as the closest hospital is 2 hours away we prefer not to put anyone at risk.
