Weekend Yoga Retreat 29 November - 1 December 2019
Autumn is a season of transition and renewal. It’s an inspiring time of year that promotes internal reflection; taking stock of current accomplishments while letting bygones be bygones in anticipation of the year to come.
Despite the crisp air that affords moments of clarity, it can be a challenging time of year too. Summer is long gone and the winter lay ahead. The stress of work, school, and extra curricular activities begins to mount while the hustle and bustle of every day decreases energy levels.
Because of this, we are counting the days until our November yoga retreat - a moment to indulge ourselves in the simple pleasures in life, embrace slow-living culture, and restore our wellbeing (with a lot of yoga and a little bit of magic) before the thick of winter is upon us.
If you want to take a break from the monotony and feel enchanted - mind, body, and soul - join us in The Palace at Osowa Sien, 29 November - 1 December.
This yoga and wellness retreat is an ideal way for novices and beginners to:
Find inspiration and reinvigorate your creative side
Relax: long walks, lots of yoga, a magical setting, and sauna sessions will do the trick
Build your bond with best friend / soul mate
Friday 29 November 2019 (Day 1):
15:00 Check-in begins
16:00 Lounge opens
Enjoy a roaring fire while sipping on a warming welcome-drink. Chocolate covered fruits and other satisfying sweet treats will be on offer at this time, so feel free to grab a good book and settle in for the afternoon.
19:00 Welcome Dinner and Introduction
A meet-and-greet in the lounge will be the official welcome to get the weekend started. Dinner will be served as a Swedish Table in the castle eatery with a view to the gardens. All meals are lovingly prepared according to the slow-food philosophy of "good, clean and fair food." In this way, Food should provide more than just a means of "fuelling”. Rather, it should be healthy while delivering on both quality and sustainability - with an emphasis on supporting local, micro-producers who contribute to this mission. It is with this philosophy that we’ll provide an delicious dinner inspired by the flavours of an Indian kitchen while utilising local produce where possible. Any dietary needs are happily accommodated on all retreats. Please message with food and dietary aversions at time of booking.
20:00 – 22:00 Sauna and relax
