Mind, Body Soul-stice Collaborative Retreat


Although "Sol" was missing most of the day and replaced by thunder and lighting there was no shortage of good friends, food and activities.

Thank you everyone who came out to kick off this event. I hope to have more events and Eagle Nest Studio will continue to evolve. I'm very interested in any feedback from those that attended.

Great helping hands to fill out food table.

Walking Meditation was enjoyed by a few early on but then rained out. In theory this is a great time to walk but need rain gear or a change of clothes.

Share circle and introductions. This is was accompanied by loud rumbling thunder. (Side note: later when I got my numerology report it said: "You are like a lightning rod, attracting powerful ideas, intuitions, and even psychic information like unpredictable bolts." Hum!)

Gentle Yoga class for tender backs (Mine!) which included Sun and Moon Salutations.

Demo of instantly increasing strength.

Discussion on energy concentration (forgot the specific name).

Tips on core training using unstable surface.

Chakra balance series.

Break for food and split into groups for Reiki healing and Numerology.

The day wrapped up with water color painting of a vase of sun flowers to represent our missing sun.

Thank you to my talented friends, teachers and healers.

Yoga has more hype than its benefits. Most of the claims are without any study. People see a yoga guru, a person with a long beard and and assume true whatever he says. moreover websites shows skinny girls doing yoga in some sexy pose. This attracts people to do yoga. People should keep in mind that yoga may not be so helpful and some asanas might have some side effects

I'm not really bothered by the whole yoga as a sport thing. Some practice yoga for the exercise, some do it for health reasons while others do it for spirituality. If doing it as a sport brings awareness to the practice on whole, then great.

Sounds like a great day out!

We love to incorporate yoga and art into our workshops, like your watercolours. We're doing a yoga and jewellery making workshop soon. Very theraputic.

Keep it up:)
