Immerse yourself in nature on inspiring guided forest walks and rediscover your sense of self whilst practicing gentle yoga (suitable for beginners/over 50's) and listening to the harmonious tones of the piano.
Weekend retreats are within the Daylesford/Hepburn/Mt Franklin area staying at a range of accommodation venues from a Yoga Ashram nestled in the heart of Wombat State Forest to a five star luxury spa country retreat.
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN NATURE
Imagine…Immersing yourself in nature on a guided bushwalk through the forest amongst tall trees, breathing in fresh air, looking at the sun filtering through the trees, hearing birds singing.
Yogabout enables you to safely discover the wonders of the historic Goldfields Track, local springs, lakes, state forests, regional and national parks in the Daylesford area.
Be guided by someone who knows the unknown tracks and can lead you on delightful circuit walks through these forests.
Spending time in a forest encourages mindfulness, a powerful tool for boosting health and wellbeing. You will also breathe more easily due to the higher concentration of oxygen found within these beautiful Victorian forests.
Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Nadi Yoga
Yoga classes on the retreats will open you to a more positive way of thinking and offer techniques to improve your ability to cope with stress, depression and anxiety. Techniques will include postures (asanas), breathing (pranayama) and meditation.
Yoga Nidra a form of deep relaxation
Nadi Yoga or Sound healing therapy
Research has shown that listening to music can lesson tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood. It can help generate feelings of peace, improve sleep, lower blood pressure and heart rate, and assist in the release of serotonin and endorphins.
Listen to the evocative sounds of the piano playing beautiful melodies composed by Enya, Ludovico Einaudi and Fiona Joy Hawkins amongst others.
