Spring Soul Revival
Yoga Retreat September 5 - 7, 2014
Come join Lara from Sukha Yoga for a weekend immersion of Yoga and Meditation as we align with the season of Spring and revitalise our body and soul for the approaching warmer months of the year. Spring calls for detoxification, shedding the heaviness of Winter and creating new rituals and inspiration to reinvigorate us for the final months of 2014. Throughout the course of this weekend away Lara will guide you through deepening your Yoga practice amongst the backdrop of peaceful Margaret River. We will immerse ourselves with pranayama, meditation, mantra and asana which will aim to shift you into a lighter state of being. Deeply nourishing and wholesome meals will be provided to assist our body’s innate natural ability to cleanse and detoxify.
