To her, there is no greater gift than improving lives by restoring and balancing the mind, body and soul in the purest way possible.

Yoga Practice on Amanda's Retreat
Hatha Yoga works at a slower pace and works with individual postures and includes pranayama (breathing techniques), meditation and relaxation. It is ideal for those beginning their yoga journey and who are newer to yoga or for those who want to improve their practice.
Vinyasa flow is a dynamic, creative style of yoga in which the asana (postures) are linked together and synchronised with a yogic breath. This style of yoga allows you to feel the physical power of a yoga practice. When we begin to move through a physical flow with the breath our inner energies begin to flow more freely through the body leaving us feeling energised and revitalised.
We will explore different forms of Pranayama to switch on the Parasympathetic Nervous System to cultivate a calm mind and help alleviate stress, anxiety and mild depression. We will also explore some pranayama techniques that are more energising for the body.
Control and/or quieten the mind focusing on different meditation techniques such as visualisation using nature and the five great elements, (earth, water, fire, air and space), mantras, a word repeated to aid concentration, chanting, focusing on internal sound (nada) and chakras to bring you into conscious being and connect with your inner-self to cultivate joy and happiness. Just being rather than doing.

Yoga Practice on Anna's Retreat
A gentle practice done mostly in a seated or lying down position where static poses are held for a minimum of 2 minutes and sometimes for as long as 10 minutes. Yin Yoga harmonizes the body by releasing the fascia and removing energetic blockages.
A vigorous style of yoga that moves through a series of poses that build heat within the body, helping to increase circulation, flexibility, strength, and mental clarity.
A restorative style of yoga where a specific set of poses are practiced in a predetermined order encouraging the spine to release. When the spine and the muscles surrounding it are all able to release, the body automatically realigns and the organs relax, restoring their optimal function.
