Our retreats combine an authentic yoga experience with meditation and relaxing activities that allow you to escape the stresses of everyday life and discover the richness that can be found in something as simple as mindfulness meditation
Mindfulness is a about focusing on the present moment, using techniques such as yoga, breathing and meditation. By focusing on the here and now, it is easier to forget past regrets and thoughts about worries in the future
Find a relaxing position, a place of confort, on cushions or a chair, with a comfortable but erect posture and close your eyes. A common exercise is the “three minute breathing space” which contains key elements of mindfulness meditation.
The first minute is spent focusing on where you are now, the contact between your body and the seat and the sensations around your body. the contact of your feet on the Meditation Pooh
Second minute, brings your awareness to your breath as you let it in and out. The idea is to let your focus rest on one breath at a time to develop “moment to moment” awareness.
Inevitably, your mind may wander, you simply acknowledge where it went and gently bring your focus back to the breath without being critical about yourself.
The third minute involves a deeper awareness from the breath and across the rest of your body, observing how it feels, but breathing, moment to moment.
What does this teach us.
It helps us to appreciate life and its values. With meditation, it teaches you how to live in the moment, the here and now. Living for today and not waiting for a special event in the near future, a week or more away. It shows you that life is about daily experiences and not chattels / personal possessions.
