Spend 3 nights in the beautiful Mt Hutt area delving into your own physical Yoga practice and learning about the Philosophy of Yoga and yourself. This is NOT a retreat- it is an Intensive weekend where you will find yourself challenged emotionally and physically whilst making lifelong friendships with others and yourself. Accommodation and food is all supplied - what you need to bring is an enthusiasm to learn more about Yoga and about yourself.
This discovery weekend is a special time to take ourselves away from our usual daily routine and busy lifestyle. We will aim to stay true to yoga and discover the authenticity and integrity of yoga and its various aspects. To achieve this, we will give more time to immerse ourselves into the selfpractice and self-transformation through yoga, contemplation and meditations to overcome mental,
social, emotional, and physical barriers.
