Awaken into Spring Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Awaken into Spring Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Join Kali for an exploratory journey to the inner depths of your being with a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend of yoga and meditation to reconnect with self and emerge from the winter months with newfound vigour and peaceful presence.

Take this opportunity to re-calibrate and restore your energy so that you can blossom into the spring with new vitality and an enriched sense of being. Kali weaves the teachings of insight meditation, energetic awareness and compassion to create a held space of open hearted awareness to nurture the soul and awaken the senses. We use yoga, breath work, meditation and sound to delve into the core of your true essence and re-unite with your authenticity.

During the retreat, there will be morning breath inspired meditations and hatha flow yoga classes to awaken and energise. The evenings will include Yin yoga and deep relaxation classes. On Saturday evening, the lovely Kate Alpe from The Healing Sounds will be offering healing sound therapy during the yin yoga session. The combination of Yin, Sound and Breath work is deeply nourishing and healing.

About your Teacher: Kali Pearce

 

My deep connection with Yoga and Meditation began many years ago with a regular Kundalini & Ashtanga Yoga practice. My passion and quest for knowledge took me to India to study Hatha Yoga with Guru Swami Santhi Prasad, and more in depth studies of Vinyasa, Hatha & Pranayama with inspirational teachers, Heather Elton; and Liza, James & Rory from Tribe Yoga.

 

As part of my explorative journey to develop a deeper meditation practice, I attended a few vipassana silent meditation retreats which sparked a profound interest in Buddhist mindfulness meditation. Urged by the transformational effects of the practice, I went on to study Yin Yoga & Insight Meditation with Sarah Powers. Along with regular practice, I draw inspiration from wisdom teachers such as: Thich Nhat Hanh, Bhante Gunaratana & The Dalai Lama.

 

As a surfer, nature lover, healthy eating advocate, green living activist and training in fitness and nutrition, I promote Yoga & health as a holistic way of life and enjoy sharing my passion and enthusiasm with others through my work.

 

My yoga classes incorporate mindfulness with an emphasis on breath and energy awareness to assist ‘going within’ to draw out the gold from your practice. Themed classes are carefully pieced together using asana, pranayama and occasionally mantra to cultivate a deep connection with your inner being through both dynamic and slow reflective practice to encourage a more spiritual experience.

“It was so lovely to meet you at the weekend, I can’t thank you enough for such an amazing experience. I hadn’t truly realised how much I really needed this time to reflect and to be amongst kind folk in a safe non judging environment. I’ve come away feeling revitalised and with more clarity in my mind and most importantly hope and will power to help myself more in improving my health. You are a very kind and special person and your guidance over the weekend was so valuable to me. Thank you. ”
