JOURNEY TO STILLNESS – BREATHWORK, YOGA AND MEDITATION
Friday, 24th of September 2021 @ 10am - 5pm / Samsara Retreat
A DAY RETREAT – Journey to Stillness
At this inspiring retreat, we’ll nurture and revitalise the mind and body through:
– Mindful movement
– Cutting edge breathwork
– Guided journaling
– Deep Rest
– Sound Healing
The day will be carefully curated to enable us to arrive in stillness, so we can ‘see’ ourselves with more clarity.
THE PLAN – The Retreat will look something like this:
We will begin with a carefully planned, Slow Flow Yoga Practice with Jess Horn.
The sequence will be designed to help you arrive fully in your body, and create space both physically and mentally, to prepare for the breath practice.
Then, Rebecca Dennis will take you on a powerful journey with your breath.
You will learn and experience the deep healing benefits of self-healing breathwork. This can help you let go of any unhealthy breathing habits, such as breath holding, shallow breathing, and over-breathing, and release both physical and emotional tension from the body. This can dramatically shift the way you feel in your body and bring higher states of awareness to the mind.
We will spend some time reflecting with guided journaling, to help us find our Sankalpa and reflect on how we’d like to navigate through life.
The day will be topped off with a beautiful Yin/Restorative Yoga practice to help lead us to stillness and absorb the benefits of this deeply healing day.
Finally, we will all come together to meditate and you will leave feeling balanced, connected, and at peace.
Jess will be weaving in sound with her magical crystal bowls throughout the day to help clear and deepen our experience.

Discover how your breath is the key to unlocking your full potential. Learn how the way you breathe shapes the way you live. Learn how to harness the power of the mind rather than be ruled by it and reclaim your body and be in the present moment. We will focus on how emotions get stuck in the body and learn about the scientific evidence and research that supports how the nervous system and breath respond to life’s challenges.
* Feel totally invigorated
* Connect with your body’s innate healing abilities
* Gain clarity and learn to let go of emotional blocks
* Release anxiety and alleviate depression
* Open your breath and learn how to reach your full potential
* Experience deep peace and connection
* Develop a new dimension to your yoga and/or spiritual practice
* Feel motivated, peaceful and energized
You will experience the difference between practicing “thinking mode versus feeling mode” and learn effective ways to strengthen your ability to hold attention and discern deeper levels of feeling. Make choices, take action, and create your own rhythm so that the flow of Life and your breath can support you.
The yoga sessions will be carefully curated to prepare and support you for the breath sessions. We will open the body, the muscles and tissues associated with our diaphragm and through slow, and thoughtful sequences the mind will also open and quieten allowing us fuller participation.
Yogis have know about the benefits of Meditation for thousands of years and recently scientists have been able to back this up and show how meditation can help us re- wire our brains to work better! Instead of our minds ruling us, we can utilise the power of our minds and direct our thoughts to more positive places. We can feel calmer, clearer, more productive and sleep better amongst other benefits.
We will explore easy, yet powerful ancient techniques, to help cope with the trials of the modern world and find greater inner peace and clarity.
