Winter Hibernation Yoga & Holistic Wellbeing Day Retreat with Ellen Carr

Saturday 1st February 2020 10am-4pm

Do you need to take some time to pause, rest and reset after a busy festive season?

The Winter Hibernation day retreat is the perfect time for you to step back from the busy day-to-day and relish in slowing down. Prepare your mind and body for Spring with a day of rest, nourishment and connecting to nature. From the cosy Yoga and Creativity space in the heart of Hebden Bridge, nestled within Yorkshire’s beautiful Calder Valley, you can reset your systems and energy, and restore yourself ready for an abundant Spring to come.

Retreating from the hustle and bustle of our lives, we’ll spend the day nourishing our minds and bodies with seasonal yoga; a mindful walk in the surrounding woods; a warming lunch; and reflecting on what we want to bring to life this Spring. We’ll end the day with a cosy and calming restorative yoga practice and guided yoga nidra meditation. You will be given practical tools and tips to help you continue this practice of slowing down, resting, reflecting and supporting yourself in your day-to-day life. Everything about the day is designed to nourish you and bring your inner systems back into balance. Take some hibernation inspiration from nature and take some time for yourself.
