Heavenly - Our first Relax & Restore Retreat day!
We had a wonderful Retreat day today with Laura.
The day was spent taking part in yoga and meditation....
Mindfulness walking in the grounds ....
After a delicious and nutritious lunch Laura led a 'gratitude' session
Deliciously Ella's Bean Stew served with brown rice and smoked quinoa, roasted cauliflower, sweet potato wedges and houmous
This is a great book The Wellbeing Journal, it has been developed in partnership with Mind, the mental health charity, with all royalties going to the charity. It's full of colouring pages, quotes to contemplate and plenty of space to record your own thoughts, feeling and experiences.
I love the colourful illustrations.
We had some great postcards, everyone chose one that spoke to them today to take home.
We finished the day with a very very relaxing Yoga Nidra session, which is lying down on the yoga mat with a blanket, cushion and eye mask whilst Laura's calm and gentle voice guided us through some breathing and relaxation.
One hour of Yoga Nidra is the equivalent of 4 hours sleep!
(I won't mention the snoring!)
A really great day, join us for our next one on Saturday 25 November
11.30am - 4:30pm
