Yoga for Lent - Getting Focused Staying Focused
An ideal opportunity to begin Lent with a spiritual practice that unites body, mind and spirit. Christians have always understood Lent to be a time of preparation for Easter, a time of focusing our attention on the ultimate moment of faith. However, we all struggle in our efforts to be focused over long periods of time, and so this retreat will introduce the yoga practice of "pratyahara" - a very practical method we can use to help us get focused and stay focused (and healthy !)
This retreat will engage us in asana (postures), pranayama (breath-work), chanting, meditation and discussion. Revd Ian Spencer will use passages from the yoga sutra along with Biblical passages as a way of illuminating our path during the retreat.
In addition, Ian will provide all participants with a short yoga practice to use at home during Lent.
Meals will be vegetarian
The retreat is suitable for experienced and non-experienced in yoga. Click on this link to book your place and enjoy looking forward to a great start to Lent: Yoga for Lent
