RETREAT: The Journey Home ~ Málaga, Spain; 10th-16th Oct 2024

One of Yoga’s greatest promises is to move us towards an experience of life that is infused with lasting fulfilment, ultimate freedom and a joy that is untouched by external circumstance. We taste the essence of that place by coming to understand the nature of our mind, its tendencies, and how we may best use its potential in service to our growth.

This retreat is an opportunity to dive a litter deeper, in an embodied way, where the teachings can begin to reveal themselves to you, through the direct experience of your own practice. Together we’ll explore traditional source wisdom, alongside the practices that help breathe life into all of it in a way that feels meaningful to you.

** Included with Sangha Subscription  **

Join me for a gathering where together we can begin to explore the depth and breadth of Yoga’s promise, contemplating and considering what this might mean for us both within our practice and our lives. How might we begin to ground ourselves in the bigger picture of Yoga in a way that informs what we do and how we do it without losing sight of its greater goal? Our focus: Continuing our journey of contemplation and embodiment through the Yamas and Niyamas. This month we shift our focus to begin unpacking the Niyamas, beginning with Saucha (cleanliness/ purity). What does this invitation actually point to, and what could it mean for our experience of our Self, our life, and the world around us.

What Clients Say

"Chrissie’s retreat “The Journey Home” far exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge of samkhya philosophy is extensive and she uses this to underpin daily practices that stretch far beyond asana. The retreat allowed every participant to use yoga’s wisdom as a method of self-enquiry, so we could gently let go of anything that was not working in our day-to-day life. Through asana, pranayama, meditation, kirtan and ceremony we delved deep to connect, reflect and release. I left the retreat having shed a few skins."
