We will  focus on how we can rise upwards out of the ground with strength and vitality moving lightly upwards , and opening outwards to connect with others through Partner Yoga. Release unhelpful postural patterns and develop a sense of lightness and energy through broad awareness and understsanding of the body with a mindful  sensitive awareness of the breath. 
 
Discover a broad repertoire of postures to take home and practice, moving on all fours, seated positions and twists, standing balances and fluid sequences of movement while diving into meditative absorption through movement & stillness.
 
Fill up with light and energy before going into the depths of winter, this retreat will be perfect preparation for the long, dark and starry nights , living the poetry of motion and meditation.
