Nourish and Flourish Yoga Retreat - Saturday 20th July


Join Alix from Core Stories Yoga for the second of this year's day retreats in beautiful Devon for a day which is all about nourishment and expressing your unique self.

This day explores not only how we express what lights us up but how you communicate it with the world around you. Focusing on the Throat Chakra; associated with the element of sound, finding the path to our authenticity, to be uniquely you and express it to the world.

Beginning with light refreshment and a discussion where we get to know more about the Throat Chakra, we will do some vocalising within a guided meditation practice and then spend time expressing by putting pen to paper in a journalling exercise.

Get ready to rock your voice with a super fun and expressive Core Strength Vinyasa (CSV) session which will either be held in the barn or the magical circle outside. This will be a session full of giggles!

After lunch we will spend some time in the snug where we talk more about the meanings associated with this Chakra and how they affect us. We then move into a nourishing and fun face yoga practice with some beautiful facial oils.

Our afternoon craft session will see you making your own Mala Bracelet for our Obstacle Clearing Chant.

Our last session of the day is a Yin Yoga and affirmation practice...absorb the day and flourish!

We end as always with a little release ritual and some light refreshment where you will receive a memento to take away with you so you may carry this practice forwards.

Finding Foundations Yoga Retreat - Saturday 5th October 


Come and join Alix from Core Stories Yoga to wrap ourselves up in warm autumnal beauty, getting back to nature for this Finding Foundations retreat.

Moving into a truly transformational season; which can be challenging after those long summer days, it is a great time to explore our foundation and our connection to the world around us.

Focusing on the Root Chakra; located at the base of the spine, our root provides the foundation on which we build our life and is related to our feeling of safety and security.

The day begins with light refreshment and a guided grounding meditation set in the beautiful colour of the woodland if the weather permits. The first of our 2 yoga sessions is a Core Strength Vinyasa (CSV) grounding energy flow.

We prepare some delicious afternoon treats as a group today. Lunch and refreshments follow at 1pm, there will be an opportunity for everyone to take a walk through the woodland to soak in the energy of the autumnal colour.

This is followed by some time in the snug where we talk more of the meanings associated with this chakra in addition to exploring the essential oils that complement this energy centre.

The second of our yoga sessions is a Yin Yoga and Restorative bliss out practice for an energy release and recharge.

We end the day with a little release ritual and some light refreshment where you will receive a memento to take away with you so you may carry this practice with you into the Autumn months.
