Slowing down does not come easy for most of us. Our modern world means we're often juggling a multitude of personal and professional things that if we're not careful we can get swept away in the rush of it all and quickly become overwhelmed.
For this reason and the fact that slowing down has been a long process for me and a practice I've gained so much benefited from, I have created 'Slow Soul Sundays'.
This mini retreat will give you time and space to nourish yourself from the inside out. To be supported so that you can rest with no agenda, expectations or needing to 'do' anything.
Think of these an antidote to the crazy mess the world is in and a way to find peace, solace and calm, a kind of 'mini retreat' that will leave you feeling grounded, rested and a little bit slower (body and mind!) as you approach a new working week.
Through yoga, mindfulness and breathwork we will create space in the mind, body and soul and re-learn what it means to go slower. Allow yourself to be held in a safe space where you can be just as you are.
Although full lived on the mat, I'll offer tools and techniques that can be used off the mat to maintain this sense of slowing down.
This will be perfect for you if you:
- find it difficult to create the time for a full retreat
- experience the 'Sunday blues' as the weekend comes to a close
- find yourself juggling a multitude of things and reaching overwhelm
- are looking for tools and techniques that you can use in everyday life to re-learn how to slow down
- need some inner nourishment and deep rest
No experience necessary, just a readiness to journey inwards.
This mini retreat will take place in-person at The Kinsbourne Barn (more details below) but we will also live stream via Zoom so you'll have the choice of whether to join us in-person or online. In-person places are limited to 10 and sell out quickly so do book your space if you'd like to join us.

We’ll move slowly into a soft flowing yoga practice to gently open the body and awaken subtle energies.

To top off the day we will close with meditation and pranayama as well as reflections over tea and sweet treats.
