Experience the Freedom of Surrendering – Blue Mountains Yoga Retreat

2pm Friday 28th May  ~ 1pm Sunday 30th May 2021 ~

Surrendering is not giving up. It is letting go of those things that no longer serve our highest good. Just as the trees loose their leaves at this time we need to gracefully release patterns, behaviours, thoughts and feelings that are holding us back.

Join Cheree for a small group weekend of Yoga, meditation, bushwalking and wellness activities at the beautiful Vanam retreat centre. There will also be time to explore the local area and connect with new and old friends.

Autumn is a time to reflect with gratitude for all we have harvested in our lives. It is also a time of Letting go of the old so that the new can be born. This is the time to clean and balance the lungs and large intestines through deep breathing, cleansing practices, strengthening and restorative yoga and taoist practices.
