Who wants to come along to our Long Summer Days of the Equinox Relaxation weekend retreat 28th-30th June in the stunning coastal village of Auchencairn? If so, we will spend our time practising yoga with Susan Neal, who will lead you in the salute to the 4 directions and also work with our fire centre by practising Agni Sara. As Hatha Yoga is about balancing our sun and moon sides -Ha = sun and Tha =moon - it promises to be a wonderful and fulfilling weekend of yoga, that will be adapted to suit all abilities. We will also spend time meditating, as a group or during quiet reflective time, when you can sit in the garden by the burn, walk the circuit around the village or take the coastal route, as well as relax to the healing vibrations of a sound bath. Holistic treatments can also be booked with our wonderful team of therapists. Delicious vegetarian and vegan meals will be prepared by our chef in our onsite restaurant and we can end each night by the fire pit, marvelling at the constellations in a region that has Dark Sky status. Prices from as little as £295 in a shared room, with a couple of single occupancy places available. £100 deposit secures your place. This promises to be a magical weekend in a stunning venue-invest in yourself and rejuvenate mind, body and soul. ** photos of Aucencairn ** ... See MoreSee Less
