Winter Solstice Celebration

Sunday 19 December, 11.00-13.00

"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer" ~ Albert Camus

IN-PERSON places have now SOLD OUT but you can still join ONLINE.

Around the time of the Winter Solstice we get ready to welcome the light back in – the longest night of the year will soon pass and we’ll slowly see the days become longer. 

For centuries it has been a time of reflection, but today the run up to Christmas can be a hectic time of doing, leaving us feeling stressed and depleted.

During this retreat we will use the practices of yoga (asana, meditation, and chanting) to revitalize the body and calm the mind. Together, we will focus our attention on being rather than doing. 

So why not join us as we prepare to close out the year, welcome in new intentions and ground ourselves for the coming festive season? 

We will practice in the lovely light filled spacious room at Wheathampstead Memorial Hall whilst also Live Streaming via Zoom, so you'll have the choice to practice In-Person or Online. 

Expect a flowing practice with ample time spent in meditation and restorative poses to reflect, pause and sow seeds of intention for the coming season.

No experience necessary, just a curious mind and a willingness to open you heart to the lessons the universe may be offering you.

PLUS you'll be able to use the recording again to maintain that sense of clam (31 day access to  recording included in your purchase).

Just £25 per person if booked before 21 November (£30 after).

  • Location

    The Kinsbourne Barn, Harpenden, AL5 3PZ. We will also Live stream via Zoom so you'll have a choice whether to join us In-Person or Online.

  • How to Prepare

    You'll need a mat or blanket to lie on, a couple of pillows, cushions and a blanket to keep you cosy. Wear comfortable clothes you can move around in and bring some drinking water.

  • Recording Included

    This workshop will be recorded so if you can't make the date or time or would like to practice again, you will receive 31 days access to the recording.

What others are saying about Louise's teachings

'Louise is so kind and caring'

by Emma Scinaldi

I started as a complete beginner and was worried I would not be able to follow the moves, but Louise is so kind and caring, plus really knows her stuff so is able to give very clear, supportive guidance. There is never any pressure as Louise always offers alternatives. With care and kindness she has encouraged me to really develop my practice. I always feel really energised after a session with Louise but I am also starting to notice a higher level of peace and tranquility in my day to day life. I feel strong and calm at the same time!

'Classes are a life-line'

by Cathy Washbrooke

Louise’s classes are a life-line! I find myself being able to calm my anxiety, find a new purpose and most importantly accept where we are as a country and continue my daily life. Louise is a very warm, nurturing and knowledgeable teacher. She also integrates elements of mindfulness through various readings, poetry and insights to deepen the practice and allow deep rest to take place. I always feel lifted, yet grounded after each of Louise’s yoga sessions.

'Supports mental wellbeing'

by Finola McManus

What I love best about your classes is that they not only give the benefit of a yoga practice but also deliver simple and practical ways to apply the weekly themes and help support mental wellbeing which is especially important at this time. Speaking as someone who struggled to make time for a single weekly practice, I am now getting to my yoga mat most days and it has become a ‘non-negotiable’ in my daily life and one which I make time for.

Your Teacher

'Yoga gives us peace and clarity in order to see the beauty and wonder that is all around us'

Louise Neicho

Having spent the first 20 years of my professional life working in and with nature I feel a deep connection to the natural world that has promoted numerous benefits in my life. Combining this with a love and appreciation of yoga and mindfulness that spans two decades (9 of them teaching) has enabled me to share practices that help us connect more deeply with nature and ourselves. I have completed over 1000hrs of yoga and mindfulness teacher training and I’m excited to be currently studying an MSc in Mindfulness and Neuroscience. I can honestly say that yoga and nature has saved my life on more than one occasion, and I don’t think I would be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my practice. To bring all of this together is simply a dream come true and I hope you will join me and our like-minded community soon.
