Escape Down South

 

Our Embodiment Retreat encompassing a myriad of healing modalities with yoga as a strong (but not the only) focus. What better place to reconnect to your love and inner light than by disconnecting from the day-to-day and connecting to some of the most relaxed energies in our beautiful state, Western Australia.

Reconnecting to the source…

Emmersed on acres of land, be at one with nature, away from the hustle and bustle, a little time to decompress.

…to reconnect to self

In perfect synchronicity.

This retreat calls on the teachings of the Yamas and Niyamas (the first two limbs of yoga) - looking at both our external and internal worlds. It wouldn't be an 'Embodied Adventure' without drawing guidance from the lunation's during this six-day experience. We will honour the New Moon in Aries with a heart focussed cacao ceremony to awaken your senses and invite you to step into and become more curious and to slow down so that you can proceed at your own comfortable pace.

 

Kicking the second day off with a morning Moon Salutation and vision board activity, to connect you to your essence and that internal compass.

After six years of dedication to her Yoga Therapy Training, Renée will be exploring a plethora of healing modalities, meditation practices, and mindful movements to harness the energy and transform areas that are sluggish, over energised, or in need of a tune-up. This will be tailored as the group bonds and the lessons evolve.

 

This retreat is about you cracking yourself open, releasing and emerging anew into the world, so we have made sure we have carved out some time and space for you to break out from the group for those all-important moments of self-reflection and realisation (and some shopping, too!).

 

Come on the journey and discover.

Meet Renée

Founder of Embodied Co., Renée is passionate about working with people wherever they are at. Understanding that the asana (poses) is generally what attracts people to a Yoga class, it is the 'other stuff' people stay for. As described in Patanjali's classification of classic yoga in the Yoga Sutras, Renée's approach, from the outset, is to weave into the physical practice a focus on your internal and external morals, breath and meditation to help turn your focus inward - where the work and awakening come from. Resulting in finding a deeper sense of balance and peace within. Ultimately she aims to consciously guide you to a place where you are elevated to higher states of consciousness.

​Looking at movement patterns in the all layers of the body to design a yoga practice that integrates bringing more mindfulness to the physical, emotional, mental, intellectual and energetic body that then opens the door to step into the bliss body. 

Trained in Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Nidra and Pre and Post Natal - Renée is a Master Trainer and hosts training and workshops across Australia. Renée has presented internationally and at several conferences in Australia.

Disclaimer

Yoga, meditation and spiritual practice is founded on the development of self-awareness, including for each individual practitioner, an awareness of his or her own physical and mental capabilities and limitations, and the rate at which those limitations can be gradually overcome through practice. It is essential that students retain full responsibility for their own physical and mental well-being in applying instructions in the practice of yoga and/or meditation to their own circumstances, both during and outside retreats/pilgrimages. The organisers provide instructions to students in the practice of yoga and meditation strictly on that basis.

You understand that you participate in yoga, meditation and spiritual practice at your own risk and accept full responsibility for any loss or injury suffered.


The organisers will not accept liability for any damages or loss which may arise out of a retreat cancellation. The organisers will not accept liability for any injury or loss suffered by students during transit to, during or transit post-retreat. It is a condition that you must have travel insurance to participate in the retreat. You must send through your travel insurance documents to the organisers, no later than 4pm on Friday 26 June 2020 – failure to provide will result in the cancellation of your participation, with no refund issued.
