Is your mind racing at a hundred miles an hour?
Are you having a hard time staying focused on what is really important to you?
Do you fall sick easily?
Do you have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night?

No wonder you do, it’s autumn.

As magical as this time of change can be, it also has the potential to unsettle us. According to Ayurveda, one of the oldest health sciences in the world, autumn is the time of wind. Not only on the outside but also on the inside: Thoughts are blown back and forth, the body starts to dry up, the focus is getting lost, anxiety, stress, and fear are rising, and the immune system has to work harder and harder to keep you healthy.

But you don’t have to let the wind blow you over. Through a strong foundation and a stable centre, you can remain balanced while exploring new perspectives and directions that the wind turns you towards.

The solution to coming back to balance? Self-care, listening within, grounding and nourishing food, and solid routines.

Join us for this two-day urban retreat to nourish and recharge your body, mind, and soul. No need to uproot yourself for a weekend of self-care: sleep at home, stick to your morning and night routine, and fill your days with yoga, breathwork, journaling, and deep connections.

``This was my first weekend retreat and I have found huge benefits to my life since returning home. Saskia and Riana were such honest, real and knowledgeable facilitators; some of the practices were entirely new to me, but with their guidance I always felt supported, safe and excited to try something new. The participants on the retreat all had such different personalities, backgrounds and levels of experience with yoga teachings and yet we all came together beautifully and each took away what we needed. I will be making these retreats a must do from now on.``
