ONLINE RETREAT - MAY 7TH - 9TH 2021
The online silent retreats are transformational weekends, giving you the space and time to dive deep within to unveil the state of yoga. We will journey into the space of Self discovery via an intuitively intelligent blend of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices/explorations), sound exploration, restorative bolster time, mantra, relaxation and contemplation/meditation. Time will be allocated throughout the weekend for satsang, questions and sharing. The practices are shared via a non dual understanding and draw from Hatha, Classical and Tantrik yoga. You will be held in a safe space for you to delve deep within to discover your natural state of being, re emerging from the depths of your inner most self feeling lighter, seeing the world in a new way and with increased resilience to flow with the meandering rivers of life.
I am Trauma aware and have completed 7 Trauma awareness study days plus online Trauma informed courses.
What students have to say...
“I have done a number of retreats with Michele over the years, and they are always wonderful weekends in great company, where you can switch off from your busy life and focus purely on the yoga. I always feel refreshed and recharged after these and, with the ongoing pandemic, I was so ready for one this time! I jumped at the chance of attending her first online retreat.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect the same level of connection that you get from being in a physical space with an inspirational yoga teacher and like-minded yoginis – I was wrong. Michele provided us with instructions to help us create our own ‘retreat space’ at home and how to maintain this during breaks. Space set up, I was ready to go, and I really felt no distance from my classmates at the other end of their devices! We shared a wonderful weekend of yoga that included bolster work, pranayama, meditation and of course asanas. Our collective experiences deepened our learning and strengthened our friendships a little more, and I certainly feel better equipped to deal with these challenging times after it.
This retreat has demonstrated Michele’s tenacity for adapting to change, whilst still providing the high quality, intuitive yoga teaching she would in face to face sessions. Much gratitude Michele, and thank you.” - Christine Jones
"Thankyou Michele for an amazing space created on the zoom retreat. Who would have thought such wonderful energy and sharing can still occur so seamlessly and beautifully over the internet. I loved it, and will be back to attend the next online retreat. I highly recommend anyone who is unsure of attending an online yoga retreat to do so with Michele who has the talent to offer clear instruction over a new medium for yoga practice, be present with us all and provide a safe space for whatever needs to unfold. It really is nourishment for the soul and who doesn't benefit from some good wholesome nourishment?" - Joanne Gardner
"The weekend retreat was most beautiful, a coming together with other Yogis, for an immersion in Yoga and the inner goddess. My experience was very deep and heartfelt, sensing the moving Prana and feeling the power of the divine. The schedule and contemplation time was well balanced, and there was no distance with the group, the space was sacred and alive... Michele, you are an amazing teacher who holds a loving space for others to dive deep, offering guidance and pointers throughout. Felt very rested, grounded and alive, in awe of the magnificence of the divine in all its forms. What a joy to be alive ♥️♥️♥️ A heart felt thank you for the light that you are Michele, feel blessed you are in my life" - Lisa Carr
"This was my first online retreat with Michele, and I am looking forward to the next one. I felt extremely connected to other people in our group which was my initial concern for an online retreat as I have thoroughly enjoyed previous retreats in Elan Valley with my lovely yoga community, but this did not make a difference as the whole weekend felt very intimate. Always in good hands with Michele and you are fully supported throughout. There is always an opportunity to share feelings or concerns you may have at any point during the retreat and this I feel plays a fundamental role in how the weekend unfolds. As disappointed as I was not to be going to Elan I was so grateful to have experienced this online retreat and felt Michele delivered exactly what was needed during these uncertain times we find ourselves in." - Kate Thomas
