With summer on the horizon, it's time to shackle of the Winter cobwebs and investigate yoga & meditation Escapes running from June to September, 2012. We look at some tantalising options.
September 28-30, Suffolk: In our extrovert, noisy society, relaxation and 'switching off' is a lost Art, and an essential skill that many people have lost, through habitual busyness. The price we are paying is not hard to see, with sky-high levels of stress, anxiety and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This nurturing Friday-to-Sunday retreat aims to help you find some 'head-space' and learn some de-stressing tools that can be applied to everyday life at home. The practises will be drawn from the ancient traditions of meditation and yoga, and will be accessible to all. Click here.
