St Non’s, St David’s Head A weekend of Yoga asana, pranayama and meditation
April 4th-6th 2014 With Laura Gilmore
This is an opportunity to enjoy an authentic retreat centre, set literally on the Pembrokehsire coast. Held at the St Non’s retreat centre we are lovingly hosted and cooked for by the nuns who live here. The weekend will include:
4 yoga sessions starting on the Friday night
accommodation at the centre
3 meals a day
Exploration of the beautiful “city” of St Davids and its cathedral
The location is stunning. The venue is comfortable but simple. The yoga room is comfortable, with high windows which look towards the coast. There is also a living room with tea always available and the dining area with beautiful coastal views and delicious plentiful vegetarian food available.
The yoga practice will involve alignment based asana, working deeply to bring about ease and relaxation through the body. We will work specifically with different aspects of asana practice in each session to deepen your knowledge and awareness of the yoga. As befits the students asana practice may become more flowing, moving through sequence of postures on the breath.
We also will take time to site in meditation - enjoying the naturally calm and inspiring nature of the place. Saturday and Sunday will include some time for silence.
Laura is delighted to return to St Non’s. It is one of her favourite centres a sentiment shared by the students who have come here before.
Laura will combine various elements of her teaching to accommodate those who attend. Bringing together a deep mindfulness within the meditation and asana practice, while also challenging the physical restrictions through the practice. Teaching with warmth and humour the weekend will offer some peaceful and joyful times, as well as giving space to accommodate to things which may need to be addressed in your life at this time. The yoga schedule is fairly dense as we only have 2 days. But it won’t be relentless hard work- so don’t be put off!
